Writer: BENDIS. Art: Mike Deodato and Greg Horn.
What Happened: Norman "Marvel" Osborn finds himself and his Dark Avengers trapped in a world created by the Molecule Man. Osborn tries to reason with MM, but winds up getting psychologically tortured for his troubles. MM then proceeds to attack each member of the Dark Avengers one by one. Having dealt with all of the Dark Avengers, MM tries to figure out what he should do, fearing that his actions will cause Reed Richards to come down on him like the hand of god. While MM is pondering his situation, Victoria Hand, Osborn's second in command approaches MM and announces that HAMMER and the USA surrender to him, ending this issue.
What I Thought: The annoying ending notwithstanding(the US surrendering to the Molecule Man? Really!?!)this comic wasn't half bad. You know, I may rag on BENDIS alot, but giving credit where credit is due, he's done a pretty good job with this series. This series is SO much better than New Avengers it's staggering. Did I just compliment BENDIS? Weird... Anyway, this was a pretty good comic that has me looking forward to the next issue.
Score: 7 out of 10.Ooo, pretty...
