Can Marvel stop torturing Janet van Dyne? Christ *sighs eternally*

Okay, so this was just not good. The last one was okay for the most part but this one just made me aware of how tone deaf white writers can be when trying to tackle issues of race and representation. I'm not sure if this was some Tina Fey, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt shit where the writers read criticisms that their team was too white and tried to combat with something praising themselves? Or if they were trying to be proactive and

Recommends it for: People who like stories that apear to be from the 1980's
Its books like these that make people think comic books are for kids. Cheesy dialogue and poorly exectuted arcs lead the Avengers through uninspired territory that only fans of the 80's could enjoy.

Hey, a 3rd volume of Busiek written Avengers!

Triathlon joins/is foisted upon the Avengers with a chip on his shoulder. Crossover with the Thunderbolts. A stupid trip to South America to help Silver Claw save her village. Mostly wonder what I read it for but the clash with Count Nefaria was decent, even if Madame Masque's internal dialogue was woeful.

Another hit and miss volume, but more hit than miss. Busiek's missteps include breaking up Scarlet Witch and Vision in favor of a clunky, uninteresting Scarlet Witch/Wonder Man relationship and trying to introduce new villains (good impulse) but introducing a forgettable team based on the Juggernaut, plus more of the underwhelming Triune Understanding.

On the upside, there's also a pretty good crossover with the Thunderbolts, the use of classic (but not overused) villains like Kulan Gath, Count N

This is Avengers story-telling in the best traditions of the old school, around 2000, with great Perez (mostly) art, epic stories, and all-around goodness. The cross-overs with the Thunderbolts (under Nicieza & Bagley) make me want to see collections of that work, too. As much as there's great stuff going on in both Avengers and Thunderbolds in the present time, it makes me miss those old days a lot.

Great stuff, all the way through. Trumps the previous volume because of the consistent Perez/Busiek work instead of having some fill-ins (though the Hellcat annual will be wiped from my memory), and the Nefaria Protocols crossover with the Thunderbolts at the end is superb. I like how Busiek still has loads of little subplots bubbling away - this is how you do Avengers properly.

Il rapporto tra Wonder-Man, la Visione, Scarlet Witch sembra esplodere, mentre si avvicina la minaccia degli esemplari dell'ottessenza. In seguito lo scontro con Kulan Gath, e il ritorno di Nefaria. Ospiti i Thunderbolts.
Busiek pesca a piene mani nella mitologia Marvel continuando a creare storie ottime per George Perez.

Kurt Busiek is an American comic book writer notable for his work on the Marvels limited series, his own title Astro City, and his four-year run on Avengers.

Busiek did not read comics as a youngster, as his parents disapproved of them. He began to read them regularly around the age of 14, when he picked up a copy of Daredevil #120. This was the first part of a continuity-heavy four-part story arc;
