Avengers #23 – More fun with the Avengers taking on HAMMER, but this time, after the rather depressing #22 where our heroes were pretty much defeated, this one had them fighting back. It was really awesome when Daisy shook the HAMMER headquarters to it’s core and set everyone else free, it’s great to see Quake show up now that Secret Warriors has been cancelled and take on a starring role. Her dialogue scenes with Spider-Woman were really fun. Of course at the end the bane of Bendis’ Avengers run showed up, Ninjas. Only this week I had a rant at an Outhouse poster who lazily claimed that Bendis’ Avengers only ever fight Ninjas, slamming them for making such an obvious observation and one that’s not true, even claiming that it’s probably been about 3 years since a Ninja showed up. So of course this issue had to feature them. Typical. Oh well, at least they aren’t the only threat, they are side show to Osborn. Daniel Acuna’s art was great, I’m really glad he’s back, Guedes was OK, but Acuna is just so unique.
