Back when I first got into comics and started reading the Avengers, one of my favorite things to do was to search through the back issue bins for the issues where they assembled the new lineups. Those issues had the best covers and always delivered the fun. While the cover on this issue didn't live up to that legacy, on a purely nostalgic level the comic itself was pretty fun. It almost makes me want to read the series again, but I've learned my lesson with Bendavengers. It's okay to visit every once in a while, but it gets boring when you go back month after month after month. While the scene with Daisy and John Walker was cool and the moment between Hawkeye and Spider-Woman's giant hair was kind of nice, the return of the Vision felt bizarrely nonchalant. If this really is the return of the original Vision the moment is not at all earned, if it's some swerve for something else then I guess that will play out over time.
Before today I would have said offhand that Daniel Acuna sucks and his coloring was the worst. Low and behold, someone finally taught that man how to color and underneath all that shiny plastic fugliness he can actually draw! I liked the art a lot and had convinced myself that there was some mix up in production and the name on the cover was wrong.
