New Avengers #24 (Eyebeam you right off his lawn Spoilers)

It’s the first tie-in issue for AvX, and this issue does a good job at straddling the line of showing the big event, but also not forgetting the various subplots that were already going on. Well, it’s more like the only subplot, as this issue picks up on the Luke Cage/Jessica Jones drama, as they argue about how the can raise baby Danielle and also be Avengers. Bends writes the dialogue of this argument exceedingly well, but it seems like Jessica is being a bit narrow-minded to me, it’s either be Avengers in the Mansion or not for her, why doesn’t Luke just suggest that they live elsewhere and still be Avengers? It’s not like Spider-Man, The Thing, Wolverine, Daredevil and others live there. The way the issue ended with Luke staring angrily as he flew headfirst into Cyclops’ beams was very effective, what’s going through his head? Is this his last fight? But as I said, there was more here than just Luke and Jessica, there was the set up for Avengers Vs X-Men, and this issue had some strong stuff which ties into the crossover, I particularly liked Storm’s moment where she leaves to side with the X-Men, and Captain America allowing it. I also liked that some of the Avengers didn’t know what the Phoenix was. This was a great example of how to do a tie-in, and not only does it make me excited for the next issue, but it made me want AvX #2 right now. So job done. Oh yeah, and in amongst all the drama, Bendis managed to fit in some funny stuff too! I loved Spider-Man’s reaction to finding out about the Jean Grey School.

I liked how Red Hulk was portrayed, as a career military officer it makes sense that he would be a great field leader and tactician.

I still can't believe how much I've grown to like the character when I was so diametrically opposed to him in the beginning.
