In 30 years plus of reading Avengers this was one of the best weeks ever with Mighty 8, NA Annual 2, Initiative and the over achieving HOM arriving at once. Sure the issue was mostly a big fight with many villains getting little to no coverage but the issue was also emotionally gripping and forwarded the plot some.

1. Strange is seemingly leaving the team and abandoning the team.
2. Jessica is registering and abandoning Luke to protect their child.
3. Wong Unleashed!

Sometimes New Avengers reads like the book of Job. What will Bendis put these poor guys through next?

It was good to see Tigra get some licks in, as well.

Otherwise though, I was fairly disappointed.
