I think Norman’s plans from last week’s New Avengers have become a little clearer now, he’s gathering genetic material from superhumans, and he has help from a SHIELD forensics expert, who became disillusioned with superheroes due to what happened in Civil War and Secret Invasion and other recent events. I’m not sure we needed to see all of these flashbacks, but it was cool to see these events re-imagined by Daniel Acuna and the dialogue between the various SHIELD agents was Bendis at his best. Then there’s the stuff that’s going on with the actual Avengers, what with the Avengers Tower destroyed, the Avengers Mansion is going to be full, and there’s a question over whether they should rebuild the Tower or not. Bendis ties this in with the question over rebuilding the World Trade Center, and he tackles it well I feel. There’s also the personal impact, Ben Grimm is distraught over his actions when he was possessed, and there’s all sorts of Hawkeye lady drama. This was mainly a set-up issue, and we don’t even get to see who the new Avengers are going to be, but it was solid, and I think Acuna will have proved some of his doubters wrong here, as his art looked better than ever.
