When the Avengers announce they're in the market for new members, their first response is from the X-Men's Beast! Fresh from turning himself blue, this newly furry mutant is eager to prove himself as a hero - and there's no better place than among Earth's mightiest! Oh, my stars and garters - it's wall-to-wall action as the Avengers face the Toad (in command of a starship?!), the revenge-seeking Whirlwind and an assassin dead-set on killing them one-by-one! And when Yellowjacket nearly dies, only the Beast's scientific knowledge can save him! See your favorite mutant hold his own alongside Captain America, Hawkeye and Thor! Hardcover, 128 pages, full color.
