Remember that episode of Late Night with David Letterman with the Avengers?
It happened in 1984 and, as you can see, even Paul Shaffer came down with a case of Avengers fever.
As you can see below, The Avengers didn’t send their top members to meet with Dave. Back in 1984, the Avengers had over a dozen members but Captain America, Iron Man, and Thor were all presumably busy so Dave had to make due with Hawkeye, Wonder Man, and The Beast. At least Black Panther and Black Widow tagged along.
Of course, it wouldn’t be a day in the life of the Avengers if a wannabe super villain didn’t show up and try to take control of the show. This time, it was a real idiot named Fabian Stankowicz. Fabian was always trying to make a name for himself as a super villain but he was always easily defeated by The Avengers. This time, he was actually defeated by none other than David Letterman himself!
Atta boy, Dave!
