Which was itself a reprint of the orig­inal Avengers Vol 1 #5 which featured the orig­inal Avengers lineup going up against Molto, Supreme Warrior of the Lava Men. Not perhaps one of their stronger outings.

It's prob­ably unfair to directly compare the two given the differ­ence in publishing prac­tices and art styles in the inter­vening forty years, but I know which I prefer.
