Avengers #24

Well, this can't be any worse than the last review, now can it? Oh wait, it's Norman Osborn and Brian Bendis... Of course it can be worse...

Avengers #24:

Summary: So Norman Osborn is a Super-Adaptoid now... Sure, why not? He goes around absorbing the Avengers powers, until Iron Man figures that Osborn would have some difficulty adapting to Protector's alien physiology. This proves true, and with Osborn's system a mess due to trying unsuccessfully to adapt to a Kree, the rest of the Avengers grab a hold of him, overloading his adaptoid-ability and ending the threat of Norman Osborn... After a good 3 years... In the aftermath, Osborn is in a coma, the president wants Captain America to make a speech to calm the public down, and Madame Hydra still has many of Osborn's HAMMER forces working for her under the Hydra banner.

Thoughts: That's about as much time as I plan on spending on this one. If I never see Norman Osborn again, it'll be too soon. That's how terribly Bendis has written both Osborn AND this story. To end this review on a positive, I'm going to say that I'm happy this storyline is over.

Score: 4 1/2 out of 10.
