Now this should be an interesting comic book... If I understand things correctly, this issue takes place AFTER the events of Fear Itself and deals with Captain America tasked with putting together a new squad of Avengers seeing as that two of their number(Bucky and Thor) perished during Fear Itself. Let's see what happens here!
Summary: Wow, I was sure wrong... This issue shows us that a disgruntled agent of SHIELD had been collecting samples from various superheroes, super-villains, aliens, the works, and having become disgusted with superhuman after the events of Fear Itself, hands these samples over to Norman Osborn and AIM(or HAMMER, I guess). As for the Avengers, well, they really don't DO anything. Captain America tells Tony Stark to rebuild Avengers Tower, most of the Avengers head to Avengers Mansion to live while things are being rebuilt, and Cap tells the gathered Avengers that he had to reevaluate who was going to remain an Avenger.
Thoughts: What the hell was THAT?! Seriously, the cover to this issue REALLY misled me big time! Frigging Bendis... Leave it to Brian Bendis to take something as simple as picking a new set of heroes to be on the Avengers and not even be able to do THAT in one issue!!! This comic was most definitely an example of Bad Bendis. Here's hoping we get Good Bendis next issue. Oh, and why the HELL is Luke Cage the owner of AVENGERS MANSION?!? I know Bendis loves him and all, but Avengers Mansion has been in the Stark family for YEARS! *sigh* Let me just end this post now before I go insane...
Score: 2 1/2 out of 10.On the positive side, Hawkeye was here. On the negative side, everything else.
