This book is an absolute blast. After thoroughly breaking down the Avengers status quo in Disassembled, Bendis laid the groundwork to do what he really wanted to do with the Avengers: bring them into the modern world. The title "New Avengers" seems incredibly fitting, as it's still definitely an Avengers book, but in a much more current, post-Iraq mindset. The villains aren't as cut-and-dried, and it's not clear what the best solution is to any given conflict. This is a fairly well-trod concept ...more

In the wake of the Disassembled event, in which the Scarlet Witch had a mental breakdown that caused the deaths of three members, the Avengers broke up. Tony Stark could no longer afford to support the team and they were disheartened by the destruction wrought by one of their own. The New Avengers opens with a massive prison break at the Raft – where all the supervillains are kept. Several superheroes arrive to try and stop the chaos, and Captain America feels that fate has intervened to create ...more

Bendis started his massive Avengers run with Avengers Disassembled. Pretty much tearing down the existing Avengers status quo to make room for what he wanted to do. This volume collects the first two story arcs of his relaunched New Avengers. Captain America and Iron Man are joined by mega popular characters Wolverine and Spider-Man (surprising they never were on the team before). Also Bendis' pet characters Luke Cage and Spider-Woman. He also uses Paul Jenkin's created character The Sentry. But ...more

Not bad. I'm actually surprised I liked this book because I prefer X-Men over Avengers big time. And I think that including Wolverine to this team was a really bad idea. He seems really out of place here. He's a hated mutant and now he's a hero? I could live with that but he's both AT THE SAME TIME. So he's here just because he's a popular character (pretty much like Spiderman) and that's stupid. I probably won't continue reading Avengers because X-Men are simply more interesting bunch. But this ...more

I don't know why I read house of M, then civil war and then Alias, and then decided to start "at the beginning" with this tome. i just did.

I loved Jessica Drew, who I didn't really understand before this book. I loved how the team assembled itself. I was really confused by the Sentry, and once I was "set straight" by friends, I was even more confused.

But more than anything, I adored Luke Cage.

Oh, right. The storytelling is great. The art is lovely. I like reading in chunks this big.

This was a great story and I'm headed to pick up Deluxe HC #2 from my bookshelf right now.

Both Finch and McNiven provide great art and I really appreciate that Marvel kept a great backup for Finch when he didn't the the pencils done so the book didn't suffer. Great consistent art from both artists and a great collaboration.

As for the story this is Bendis at his best, which is pretty dang awesome.

Why did it take me SO long to read this?! I literally had this booked cheched out for a little over a month and had I known it be this good I would have read it sooner! Love seeing how this new set of Avengers become a team. I'm now a new fan of Spider-Woman, Luke Cage and The Sentry! Now I need more NEW AVENGERS!

Honestly? I thought this was really incredible. I enjoyed it even more than I thought that I would. I love Spider-Man and Wolverine, and seeing them working all together as (and with the other) Avengers was so much fun. I'm looking forward to reading more of this series leading up to Civil War.
