If you take the first 3 issues together as a whole and look at them, issue 1 was solid and issue 2 was fun, and issue 3 was filler. But overall everything is glossed over. You are right. Bendis is using Avengers to fill out the MEAT of the story. That is bullshit to me. You know why? Because this could have been told as a crossver between New and Mighty just as well without 32 page $3.99 fucking filler issues to gloss over the whole damn thing.
I'm enjoying SI so far, but I think your assessment is pretty accurate. Bendis isn't telling a bad story, nor one that necessarily precipitates you buying other books, but it fees as if he's putting the bare minimum in the main book. We're getting a few "Oh Shit" moments and a paranoid atmosphere, but not enough meat.
