Synopsis for "Back to the Stone Age!"Edit

The Avengers battle the Grey Gargoyle. He defeats them and leaves. The Falcon follows the Gargoyle, who heads back to his former apartment. It is now occupied by a woman. He wants to augment his powers and asks her where his chemicals are. She tells him she threw them away. Enraged, he is about to attack her when the Falcon shows up. Falcon tells Redwing to go alert the Avengers, but the Gargoyle turns him to stone before he can. The Falcon then battles the Gargoyle, hoping to cause enough of a ruckus, and to keep up the battle long enough, for the Avengers to find out about it and show up. They show up in time, and the Scarlet Witch uses her hex power to turn the Gargoyle back into flesh and blood. Returning to the court, the Avengers find the case awarded in their favor. Gyrich is forced to greatly loosen his restrictions on the Avengers.

  • Also includes a Hostess Fruit Pies ad featuring the Human Torch and Icemaster. This ad, also printed in other Marvel comics that month, marks the first appearance of Icemaster, who reappeared years later in the main Marvel continuity in Thunderbolts #24.
    • A "Name the First Appearance" contest for the 25 Masters of Evil was held in Thunderbolts at that time. Avengers #191 was listed in the results as Icemaster's first appearance, with a note about the Hostess advertisements.
