The Original Avengers. The Original Hellfire Club. Mark Waid.
The all-time favorite Avengers episode "A Touch of Brimstone" that inspired legendary X-MEN team Chris Claremont and John Byrne to create Marvel's Hellfire Club and enduring hero/villain The White Queen continues with a brand-new ongoing series from DAREDEVIL and IRREDEEMABLE's Mark Waid. Taking place in the continuity of the original TV series, find out how the hottest super-spy duo of all time takes on the dreaded Hellfire Club in this sexy, action-packed adventure where the gloves come off...and the leather goes on. With stunning artwork from ATHENA VOLTAIRE's Steve Bryant, you won't want to miss the return of this modern classic!
