Completely unrecognizable! - james meeley
I don't know what I was expecting when I read this book, but it certianly wasn't what I got. These characters might look like the Avengers and have thier powers, but they aren't the heroes I remember. Cap playing political games? Thor talking about going to war? Scarlet Witch looking to kill all mutants? Are these the people we are supposed to root for? It's heroes that are hardly heroic. The art is fine, although even that suffers from the story, as scenes like seeing Professor X's corpse, with his brain cut out of his head, seemed completely unnecessary. What happened to inferring something and letting the reader's imagination do the rest? Whatever else these characters may be, they surely are not the Avengers I've read about in my 25 years of comic collecting. Just a sign, I suppose, that I'm not the kind of reader Marvel wants anymore. Such a shame!
