A fun action issue that sows plenty more seeds for the bubbling Norman Osborn/Dark Avengers plot. The New Avengers (and Iron Man) take down Ultimo, a giant robot, and it was a really cool fight, drawn brilliantly by Mike Deodato, I loved the two pages where he showed each individual Avenger in their own panel attacking Ultimo, and then the next page, being smashed by him. This was one of this issues where you just see the team fight something and banter a bit, and it was enjoyable as usual. But of course Ultimo was under the control of Norman Osborn, and was planning on stealing an Iron Man armour, I presume in order for Normie to become Iron Patriot once again. That fails, but then he does manage to get a sample of Wolverine’s DNA and blow up the Avengers. I just love how batshit Bendis’ Osborn is, ‘flay the skin from their bodies’ indeed.
