I loved the art for this book it was the best part for me. Though the shot where thor zapped Kang was a little off.

I haven't read it a second time, I'll pay attention to the art the second time prob'ly. I didn't think it was JRJR's best work to date or anything.

I would agree with that as well, his favorite stuff of mine is his Amazing Spider-man stuff. Also a lot of his images are great for sequentials but not always the best as static images which is why a lot of his covers have been lackluster.

I agree. He's solid and prolific. His work in free comic book Iron Man/Thor was very good. I haven't grabbed this issue yet. Maybe tomorrow, if I get the chance. The preview pages look good.

But I do have to admit that, at times, Romita Jr can rush through books. He seemed to get bored midway through WWH and by issues 4 and 5 let things really slide. But generally, I think he's one of the most consistent and satisfying artists around. I loved his Daredevil, Punisher, and Amazing Spider-Man work.

I remember a question I had for people reading Iron Man or other books.

Ok. How did Tony Stark get Avengers Tower back? I thought in Dark Avengers Norman said he built it using tax dollars or gov't money and so it basically wasn't his private property.

But in Avengers #1, Steve tells Iron Man that the tower is Tony's house. I know HAMMER is gone and Norman is out, but how'd it revert to Tony's property?

I mean, I can buy that, but maybe it should've gone to Steve. That would have been funny.

I looked over the art, my main gripe is Steve looks short & skinny (relatively).

compared to wonderman, Iron Man and Thor he should be though. How does he look compared to Wolverine and Spidey?

It's hard to tell. Bucky looks like he has about four inches on Steve in a couple panels.

I did not notice that the first time.
