Falcon Takes Flight in 90’s By The Numbers

90s By The Numbers: Avengers #341

It’s time to face facts, true believers – the ’90s were awesome. The pouches were plentiful, the costumes were impractical, and Marvel Universe dentists made a fortune correcting damages caused by perpetually gritted teeth. Thanks to the power of nostalgia, though, what would once be considered extremely embarrassing can now be called extremely awesome!

With that in mind, we’ve pulled a Marvel comic from the not-so-modern era and broken it down, one radical fact at a time! This week we’re singling out AVENGERS #341 by Fabian Nicieza and Steve Epting. Here’s “Rage of Angels” by the numbers!

42 “feathers” on Falcon’s flight harness

25 rioters

13 monitors in Night Thrasher’s communications room

6 clobbered — or soon-to-be clobbered — Sons of the Serpent members

4 assembled Avengers

3 target discs

1 mask with appropriately beak-like ornamentation
