Why are the Avengers running around with mechs in Avengers: Mech Strike (Spoilers)
Obviously the main reason we have Avengers: Mech Strike is to sell more toys for Marvel and Hasbro, there should be a deeper reason why Earth’s Mightiest Heroes are piloting mechs in this miniseries written by Jed McKay and Carlos Magno.
Spoiler Alert by the way
The reason why the Avengers are driving mechs based on their looks and powers because they wanted to stop a new biomechanical threat. Black Panther succeeds in finding a resistant material in the form of Vibranium. And with that information, Tony Stark gathers the team including Spider-Man and gives them gauntlets…
He reveals that the gauntlets are just the sweetener and that he has built the team their own respective mechs/ giant robots to battle these invaders. He also added in vibranium to make it on equal footing with the unknown enemies.
As they all take out their mechs on a test run, these biomechanical threats suddenly rouse from its sleep.
The series is interesting at the very least. Will probably pick up the next issue.
