In the wake of Civil War, Captain America was apparently dead, while Iron Man and Sentry decamped for a sanctioned Avengers team. The other New Avengers were joined by Doctor Strange, Iron Fist and a new Ronin, a/k/a old friend Hawkeye, back from the dead and a controversial encounter with an amnesiac and depowered Scarlet Witch. The plot picked up Echo’s story as she cut a swath through the Japanese underworld. The New Avengers responded to Echo’s S.O.S. after dodging several attempts by Iron M ...more
When the Superhuman Registration Act was passed, many heroes refused to register and went underground. Spider-Man, Doctor Strange, Spider-Woman, Iron Fist, Wolverine, Luke Cage, Hawkeye and Jessica Drew are some of those who refuse to work under the US government's control. Instead, they split their time between opposing government forces and with their usual superheroing. In this case, that means saving Maya Lopez, who took up the mantle of Ronin but was eventually overwhelmed by Elektra's Hand ...more

New Avengers continues past the Civil War with a new purpose, a new roster, but no new name, which is all kinds of weird. It's a shame the balance has been thrown off so soon after the team's inception, but at least Bendis uses the fallout of the Civil War to set up a confrontation between his titular characters and the Mighty Avengers.

And boy, what a thrilling confrontation that is. In my experience Tony Stark has never been more interesting than he is in Civil War-mode: ruthless and unstoppab
This was a good time. It follows on the heels of the Civil War storyline, and plants some of the first seeds for the Secret Invasion. I remember reading some of these in the original issues, but it makes a lot more sense now that I have read the issues that came before. The team has been pared down to some of my favorite characters (Luke Cage, Iron Fist, Doctor Strange, Wolverine, Spider-Man, Spider-Woman, and Clint Barton as Ronin). It's quite interesting to see some of the interactions that ta ...more
Avengers #26 is Bendis doing what he does best: brief but deep personal stories (this one involving Hawkeye and Scarlet Witch.) Him teaming up with Maleev is a winning combo.

Avengers #27-31 is Bendis going out of his depth. Yu replaces Maleev on art and does a decent job, but Bendis' writing falters noticeably. I dislike his treatment of some, if not most, of the characters and their interactions with each other.

The best worst example is Spiderman. I realise it's not easy to write Spiderman; n
Brian Michael Bendis's writing for The New Avengers has never really come together for me. (His writing during this period for The Mighty Avengers plays much more to his strengths.) But the art in this volume is beautiful, especially Alex Maleev's art for the first issue, which is a standalone story about the resurrected Clint Barton (Hawkeye) searching for Wanda Maximoff (The Scarlet Witch) in a fictional Eastern European town. Clearly influenced by Gustav Klimt (among others), this story is be ...more
Would've rated it higher, but I kept finding the wonky timelines between the Civil War immediate fallout story and the Echo/Electra story jarring. Even before the halfway mark, I just wanted it to be over. I think I'm finished with this particular version of New Avengers. Once it veered away from the Raft and Sentry into Civil War-heavy volumes, I completely lost interested. I have yet to read anything from Civil War that I cared for.

The very end tail of this (and beginning of the next volume) is in a Secret Invasion book I read. I enjoyed the pieces there, but having them put into their context of the series they were part of lead to me enjoying them a WHOLE lot more.

The art was incredible. Alex Maleev's art for the Scarlet Witch story came of as overly seductive and sexual which fit the story perfectly. Leinil Yu's art was, well, his art. I was very torn over it art when I first ran across it. From the perspective of art f
Not bad, but could have been a lot better. Just being in order the whole way through would have been better. And consistently good art would have been better. But there were nice bits all the way through. The small bit with Clint and Wanda. Anytime they weren't fighting ninjas. 3.5 of 5.

The book "The New Avengers" in my perspective was really well writtin.I like how they included new superheros that don't really get noticed.In the begining of the book all the superheros met up and they had a really big discusion.They was talking about uniting adn evryone had there own opinion on the idea of joining together most people agreed with the idea except one a guy named poseidon. He said " why should i help u guys protect the land if u guys dont help me defend atlantus did u
Reprints New Avengers #26-31. Hawkeye's back and searching for the Scarlet Witch. The New Avengers face the fall out of the Civil War and are forced to remain in hiding. Plus: The big reveal at the end is a lead in to Secret Invasion. The problem I have with New Avengers is that it feels like an early '90s comic. The art is horrible (with exception of the Scarlet Witch issue in this collection). It his inked too dark and it is confusing. The story also feels like an early '90s comic book...meani ...more

More Avengers vs. Avengers fun, with some trouble from the Hand to boot: Hawkeye might not be dead after all, and Maya Lopez's plan to take down the Japanese underworld has run into a serious snag: the Hand, and its new leader, Elektra. Maya's kidnapping prompts an automated message to go out to Matt Murdock, a.k.a. Daredevil, asking him to kill her (if she isn't already dead) or avenge her (if she is) so she doesn't get brainwashed by the Hand. Murdock and company have their own issues to deal ...more

I just lost a huge write-up. Ugh, Firefox.

#22 - Art by Alex Maleev. Clint Barton goes looking for Wanda Maximoff, who killed and resurrected him twice. Unsurprisingly, I love it. Spooky (Clint approaching the closed door) and sensuous (Klimt-referencing kiss).

#23 - Art by Leinil Yu (sigh). The New Avengers, hunted by Tony Stark's SHIELD, rescue Echo from the Hand (Japanese yakuza) and discover that Skrulls (shapechanging aliens) have invaded, occupied positions of power, and are undetectable by
i had really loved this run up until now. this was a really confusing arc. and i know it keeps going into the next volume. i'll probably finish it, but i wouldn't recommend it.
Volume 6 is a definite improvement. We have the team schism left over from Civil War still evident. We have a secret headquarters with Dr. Strange. There is a tremendous stand-alone issue at the beginning in which Hawkeye tries to find the Scarlet Witch and figure out why she killed him in the House of M storyline (even though it didn't stick). I really enjoyed this plot line with the rescue of Echo from Elektra and the Hand. Nothing like classy repartee while fighting hordes of ninjas. And of c ...more
This is the one with the fight that kills Skrull Elektra.
Hawkeye comes back from the dead and the team heads to Japan to help an undercover agent accidentally abandoned by Civil War.

Excellent art and excellent story. A pivotal book in the Secret Invasion series.

A must read for True Believers!

Scarlet Witch makes an appearance.

Recommended to Federiken by: Lo que venía antes
La historia no está mal aunque cumple con demasiadas creces con la ley de conservación ninja: seis héroes contra un ejército inacabable de ninjas y no les matan ni a uno. Por cierto, me pareció bastante bien jugada la carta del nuevo Ronin (por más que la resurrección de quien está detrás me haya parecido de lo más al pedo), y los dibujos de Yu están muy bien. Si cae el #8, bienvenido sea.

I can see how people would find this slow, but as a book, at least, it's pretty enjoyable. I may start following the series regularly, but we'll see if I can manage. There are definitely some fun ideas in here, though, and some great moments for those of us who've grown up with these characters.
A pretty standard Avengers story, hampered by some overly-confusing flashbacks (which Bendis usually does pretty well.) Of course, we've split into Mighty and New Avengers at this point. Unfortunately, I think this means we get two so-so series instead of one really good series.
William Thomas
one of the only bendis story arcs i actually loved, seeing as how on countless occasions i have said that he is not a good super hero script writer, but better as an idea man. however, this doesn't change the fact that i think the man should go back to doing noir books for image.
I really enjoy what Brian Michael Bendis is doing with the Ronin character/costume. I'm much more suspicious about the future of this team, and of Hawkeye and Echo in particular. The surprise ending at the end has me intrigued, though.
I'm giving this a four as an average - 5 stars for issue 26 simply for a beautifully stripped down and understated story and Alex Maleev's gorgeous, perfect artwork. 3 stars for the rest of the book.
Wow. Not only is the art incredible, the story here is interesting and very well told. Also, I have to say, this is a great end to a story. Death and Skrull. Awesome.
Number 21 is particularly notable for the lovely "Ballad of Hawkeye & Scarlet Witch," their return after House of M, and its beautiful art by Maleev.
I am really not a fan of Leinil Yu's art- he pretty much makes every single character look as gritty and unattractive as possible.
This is probably the last volume of The New Avengers I'll read. I just don't think that mainstream team books are Bendis' forté.
This got me into ironfist. Plus, who doesn't like a good rebellion/fugitive story. Loved the art to, so gritty yet defined.
That was strange... Doctor Strange. Bwahahahaha.

Srsly though, the world is upside down. And just who is behind it?
Shannon Appelcline
A somewhat scattered story with a great ending (ultimately let down by the Secret Invasion mini-series).
