A really good issue, and a big improvement over the first part of this story in the New Avengers Annual. Yes, there are questions about where all this fits continuity-wise, but they don’t really matter when the story is this strong, and this was powerful stuff, because really, what Wonder Man is saying is true. Just like Bendis is having Osborn question the purpose of the Avengers in the current storyline, Simon Williams is doing the same, but it has more impact because he’s not the Green Gobin, he’s a hero. I particularly liked how Bendis revisited the fact that Wonder Man is only alive because of Wanda, and how he linked that in with what happened in Disassembled, because I felt like that plot line had kind of been forgotten. Add in some great art, a brilliant ‘Patented Bendis Talking Heads’ page and some of Bendis’ best writing in a while in the conversation between Beast and Wonder Man, this was a great story. I just don’t know where it’s going. Is it something to do with Avengers Vs. X-Men?

It was a good read, woulda been better if it came out last year before Fear Itself. I thought the Dell 'Otto art was beautiful.

No, this is part of Bendis' final year on Avengers.

I think he's billing it as "everyone vs. The Avengers" or something.

They'll be facing the Dark Avengers, HAMMER, Hydra, and Simon.

What did Beast say to Wonder Man?

Beast was one of my favorite characters back then when they were buddies.

He said "OH MY stars and garters" in his best George Takei imitation.
