  Huh. From that page one caption, it sounds like Ra is the real First Avenger.

Seriously, though, I don't remember a LOT of Silver Age stories dealing in Egyptian myth, but any story that pits one of these Golden Age heroes against gods and goddesses reminds me of the Asgardians and Greek Gods. It's just a little more exciting than your average random bad guy.
