The big Dark Avengers story continues to develop nicely, and it looks like this confrontation is going to be a lot more complex than it looks on the surface. Norman’s new team is rife with divisions and different agendas, already we know that both Madame Hydra and Gorgon distrust Normie and plan to take over once he inevitably goes insane, and on top of that there’s the antipathy between Gorgon and Hydra themselves. Add to that the questionable loyalties of Skaar and Victoria Hand, and things are veeeery interesting indeed. The stuff with the actual, heroic Avengers was interesting too, Jessica Jones’ fear about the safety of her baby rings true, and I loved Spider-Man’s skittishness and concern about Norman being at large. Oh yeah, and the scene between Daredevil and Squirrel Girl was hilariously awkward. Next issue is the big fight, I’m looking forward to it. Also, is the whole ‘Anti-Avengers Protests’ thing we’ve seen lately a comment on Occupy Wall Street? I don’t get what Bendis is getting at.

It was really enjoyable watching the Avengers sit around their table and talk. That doesn't happen enough.

I look forward to next issue where Osborn talks his way out of the fight, the Avengers look like bullies and they spend the next 18 pages talking about how they were beaten again.

I don't think Bendis is necessarily a bad writer, but he does have a tendency to drag individual storylines out. The Luke Cage/Norman Osbourne story in New Avengers was a shining example of this, as was every story with the Hood. Bendis always starts strong, and he often ends strong, but if he doesn't have a big event or story to tie into, he too often pads his books with inconsequential garbage.

Normally I never doubt the great one but I do feel that I have read this comic before, hopefully there is a curve ball in the next issue.

I liked the conversation between Madame Hydra and Gorgon. The interaction between Squirrel Girl and Daredevil seemed a little forced to me though.

The rest of this issue was, alright, it wasn't bad, but nowhere near Bendis' best work.

I am sick and tired of the same scene between Spider-Man and Victoria.
Hey, Spidey, shit or get off the pot already. Drive her out of the house or trust her, but either way, shut the fuck up!
