    Keith Pollard and Rudy Nebres The Avengers #179 Origin of the Bloodhawk Cover Original Art (Marvel, 1979). This issue marked the first appearance of the Bloodhawk in "Slowly Slays the Stinger." Things are looking rough for the Earth's Mightiest Heroes on this action-packed cover, and the image area of this thriller measures 10" x 15". In this yarn, the Earth's Mightiest Heroes attend a New York Museum of Natural History fundraiser, when the event is interrupted with the dramatic arrival of the Bloodhawk. Once the Avengers parlay with the Bloodhawk and his companion, they reveal the purpose of their intrusion -- the museum's ancient he-who-protects totem that will avert a crisis on the South Sea Island of Muara. The lineup features the Beast, Black Panther, Iron Man, Scarlet Witch, Thor (note the way he's winding up for a massive hammer-blow!), Vision, Wasp, Wonder Man, and Yellowjacket. The logos and captions for this cover are replacements, mounted on an acetate overlay, and a photocopy of the penciled page is also included with this lot. The art is in Excellent condition.
