avengers 442 triathalon

Gee, I wonder how Triathalon got on the team?  Oh, I know, because Kurt Busiek created him!

It’s kind of ironic: The comic has a storyline about how The Avengers should have more black people, but none of the black heroes they know want to get on the team simply as a result of a quota-based affirmative program.  So, Busiek resorts to nepotism.  I know, that analysis is a little meta.  But it’s still ironic, isn’t it?
