Just been watching the feature on Ultimate Avengers 2 - Mark & Bryan talking about Ultimates comic.
They state back in 2001 all the Avengers comics [Avengers, Captain America, Hulk, Ironman, Thor] where all about to be cancelled. I've look back at this era & this was when Avengers v3 was doing that Kang war #41-55. I read this in reprint in the UK in 2004. I never knew that this was the case & why they gave Mark & Bryan the Avengers to do because they where going to scrap the line. You don't have Alan Davis on a book when you are going to cnacel it.
