SPOT THE DIFFERENCE: THE AVENGERS #4...
Above is a production stat of the cover to AVENGERS
#4 as originally drawn and lettered, below as it was published.
As you can see, CAPTAIN AMERICA's right head winglet has
been altered to match the left one, and the jagged outline around
the larger caption has been removed, along with the words 'THE
REAL'. This was in reference to a Cap impostor having recently
appeared in a HUMAN TORCH story in STRANGE TALES
#114. MARVEL obviously wanted us to know the original was
back, but then must've realised that we were smart enough
to figure that out for ourselves. The SUB-MARINER
caption has also been slightly repositioned.
Marvel amended the production stat for their first
printing of The Avengers MARVEL MASTERWORKS
in 1988, but overlooked the head winglet. Below is how
it appeared in that valiant volume.
