This is such classic comic material that it almost defies belief. Busiek grabs the best of what makes the traditional Silver Age Avengers -- the partnerships, the rivalries, the personal flaws and doubts, the noble challenge of heroism. George Perez is is usual, incredible best.

While I keep thinking of this as a modern rebooting of the Avengers saga -- following the (ack) Onslaught/Heroes Reborn disaster at Marvel -- in reality it dates back to 1998. Yikes. And, of course, since then, the whole Avengers Disassembled saga has taken it all back apart.

But this is a great example of the pre-Bendis era Avengers at their best. Triffic stuff.
