The focus on Odinson was an interesting choice because ever since losing his hammer he has been quite all over the place. All over the place as in it is hard to get a read on where he is at emotionally. Sometimes he seems okay, other times distant as we see in this issue. Though for Avengers World which is closer to present, it is easier to take this Odinson as the actual state he is in. One that is important to explore because for those who read all of Hickman’s run of Avengers, Odinson and Hyperion are both dead. Both going down in a glorious battle that Odinson could only have been motivated for through the progress of this issue which addresses his loss of motivation. It was the perfect way to put Odinson in the right mindset he needed to be in while also swiftly closing out the subplot surrounding Roberto finalizing his takeover of A.I.M.

Namor’s story continues to be one that you sympathize with. You sympathize with what he has to deal with knowing the Cabal are out of control, and there is nothing he can do against such powerhouses. Though that is not to say you forget that Namor put himself in this position. Nonetheless this is a change in the story leaning towards redemption, and that is what you want to see from Namor when we reach our end. At this point it is easy to tell how much Barbiere has favored writing Namor and it shows as this is the most genuine we have seen of his character since first starting this crusade with the Cabal across the Multiverse. We’ve gotten little by little of how things have been going wrong, and that difference between his reaction and those like Namor means everything. Just the way Blackswan mocks Namor is where you draw that line in the sand between what is right and what is just senseless violence. In all I would rate this issue a 7.2/10 that’s all for this issue and as always keep on marveling.

A-Force #1 (Secret Wars)

A-Force #1

Written by: Marguerite Bennett, G. willow Willson

Cover by: Jim Cheung

Released: May 20, 2015 

With this first issue, the writers are more interested in good, old-fashioned superhero spectacle than gender politics. Much of the book revolves around a brawl between A-Force and a giant, prehistoric shark. In that sense, A-Force is exactly the kind of book Secret Wars promised. It’s fun, it’s weird and it takes advantage of the fresh canvas of Battleworld. It doesn’t require more than a basic familiarity with the premise of Secret Wars. 

Which is good, since this more than any other tie-in may become a gateway for curious new readers. A-Force features the rock-solid characterization the two writers are becoming known. Sure only a handful of the many team players have the opportunity to stand out in this fast-paced first chapter. Even so, the general team dynamic is enjoyable, and the book is anchored by elements like She-Hulk’s “heavy is the head” conflict and the bond between Miss America and Loki. In all I would rate this issue a 8/10 that’s all for this issue and as always keep on marveling.

New Avengers Ultron Forever #1

New Avengers Ultron Forever #1

Written by: Al Ewing

Released: April 29, 2015

Doom has assembled the strongest Avengers from different moments in time to fight Ultron, but he also has his own team of Avengers, complicating their task. The team from the past consists of The Hulk (yes!), Thor (ultra yes!) and Iron Man (Rhodey, not Tony). The team from the present includes Black Widow and The Vision, and finally we have the team from the future, Thor and Captain America (Danielle Cage).

The mixture of past, present and future works very well, although sometimes it may be a little hard to follow. I especially enjoyed the inclusion of Doom and seeing his reactions to the events, (and that ending, wow.) Ultron is a very interesting character and I love reading more about him, especially seeing how he’s represented in this series. He seems quite different to the new Avengers film (which you need to go see if you haven’t yet) and the contrast is quite intriguing. I love the combination of his power and uncaring personality, and even though he’s not the most likeable character, it just makes the story better as you want to see if he will be defeated by the Avengers. In all I would rate this issue a 8/10 that’s all for this issue and as always keep on marveling.

Avengers #44

Avengers #44

Written by: Jonathen Hickman

Cover by: Dustin Weaver 

Released:

While New Avengers #33 wasn’t much of a series finale, The Avengers #44 is more ambitious and all-encompassing when it comes to wrapping up Jonathan Hickman’s long stint on these two titles. It’s an epic way to cap off the book and pave the way for Secret Wars #1.

Hickman divides his attention among several plot threads in this final issue, including the intergalactic assault on Earth, the fate of Namor’s Cabal in the Ultimate Universe, and the Avengers’ desperate efforts to build an ark and allow some remnant of humanity to survive the end of existence. A lot of great character moments crop up throughout as Hickman mines the drama and sense of impending doom to full effect. One standout moment involves Black Panther’s meeting with the Obama administration, highlighting the futility of humanity’s plight and T’Challa’s own disillusionment with a world that doomed his nation to death. Another involves Thanos reflecting on heroes of Earth-616. There’s a real sense of begrudging respect for these men and women who have defied his will repeatedly and lived to tell about it. These moments and others serve as proof that Hickman isn’t allowing the plot to overwhelm characterization even at this late hour. In all I would rate this issue a 8.5/10 that’s all for this issue and as always keep on marveling.

Released: April 22, 2015 

This issue was just spectacular. In this issue we have the avengers team up Ince again to defeat a commen for. Yes you guessed it Hydra. Black Wido followed some hydra agents and found out that they have been making weapons from the chatari aliens. Hawkeye on the other hand is struggling to come up with a reason to why he should be part of the avengers, after all he doesn’t have powers like the rest of them. In the end he he does find out the reason. 

This issue was put together very well. I loved this issue a lot and the artwork is just phenomenal, I really digged it. In this issue we also se a deferent costum for hawkeye I actually liked it, I didn’t mind it at all. What I really liked about this issue is that we get to see some commen conflicts that the heroes face and when I say “commen” I mean problems that a regular civilian would have I thought that was pretty neat. In all I would rate this issue a 8.5/10 that’s all for this issue  and as always keep on marveling.

Released: April 29, 2015 

Sit right back in your seat and get comfy: Molecule Man and Dr. Doom are about to dump a freight truck worth of exposition right on your heads in order to actually explain what has been going on in the story. Hope you like exposition long-winded and heavy dear readers!

I’m not even joking with that opening paragraph; four-fifths of this entire comic is essentially exposition as Hickman has his characters provide explanation for the entire plot, Black Swans, and recent twists. The only story component to be found is in the last five or so pages of the book and that’s really it. In all I would rate this issue a 8.5/10 that’s all for this issue and as always keep on marveling.

Avengers 34.1

Avengers 34.1 

Written by: Al Ewing 

Art by: Dale Keown 

Cover by: Dale Keown 

Released: September 10, 2014 

Providing readers with a break from Jonathan Hickman’s main saga, Al Ewing and Dale Keown take the creative reins for the oversized Avengers #34.1 – a solo tale that revolves around the latest version of Hyperion. Building upon the work Hickman has already done to move the character beyond a simple Superman analogue, Ewing spins a yarn that’s more existential crisis than action story as the supreme hero searches for a child snatched from his home.

The approach proves refreshing after Captain America’s recent spotlight in a way that allows character growth for one of the newer, more auxiliary members of the Avengers introduced in the wake of Marvel Now. Where as Hickman has often sidelined these individual character threads in favour of pushing forward with his epic science fiction narrative – the fantastic casino adventure of Cannonball and Sunspot forming a notable exception – Ewing takes the time here to expand upon a character that remains very much shrouded in mystery.

This issue was really refreshing and nice. We got to see some character development with hyperion and I like that because I love hyperion, he is just amazing! In all I would rate this issue a 9/10 that’s all for this issue and as always keep on marveling.

(AVX) Avengers #24.1

Avengers #24.1

Written by: Brian Michael Bendis 

Art by: Brandon Peterson 

Cover by: Brandon Peterson 

Released: March 28, 2012 

The Vision is back and he is kinda-sorta pissed! It’s probably not the best impression for someone who might be picking up their first Avengers comic But the Vision goes around asking people questions. He even goes to Magneto and confronts him. The Vision only wants to know one thing, where is Wanda? (Scarlet witch) this issue is also very emotional which I liked very much. 

On the other hand we get to see the fine artwork done by Peterson. Every shot was just amazing. Like when Vision and She-Hulk meet or when Captain America and Vision meet, you could see the anger in Captain America’s face and as well the sadness in Visions face. It’s a shame we didn’t get to see some action besides magneto and Vision arguing. With that being said I wild rate this book a 8/10 that’s all for today and as always keep on marveling!
