Synopsis for "Above and Beyond"Edit
The Avengers launch into a new offensive against the known super criminal element under a new direction from Wasp and Captain America against the Taskmaster. The Vision and Warbird go out on a date. Yellowjacket has kidnaped the real Pym and taken his place among the Avengers. Meanwhile, Diablo has put into motion his latest schemes and has transformed the population of a small Greek town into Hulk-like creatures.
- Inside the Avengers Mansion, the team can be seen monitoring numerous threats including Galactus, Supreme Intelligence, Alkhema, Thanos, Wizard, Dormammu, Red Skull, Arkon, Hydra, Warlord Kro, Baron Zemo, Taskmaster, Triune Understanding, Hulk, High Evolutionary, Crimson Cowl, Kang, Exemplars, Attuma, Mandarin, Dr. Doom, Maelstrom, Apocalypse, Magneto, Mole Man, Loki, Living Monolith, M.O.D.O.K., A.I.M., and Klaw.
- In this issue Iron Man uses roller wheels attached to the back of his armor. This innovation has not been used since Tales of Suspense #44 with the Iron Man Armor MK II model. It has not been listed in future nomenclatures or "Iron Manuals". Apparently, the MK II innovation was placed on this MK V armor.

- Howard Medinnus may be an homage to David Medinnus the curator of the Captain America homage page The Star Spangled Site.

Other noted internet fans ("Jarvis Heads") of the Avengers were also randomly noted by Kurt Busiek during his time as writer on this title.
