Reply Subj: I'm... honestly very, very surprised you liked this issue...?

    Most people online seems to think AAS is far too simplistically written, to by the numbers.

    That it almost feels like an all-agees book, apparently.
    I think I can kind of see what they mean there... It assumes you know NOTHING about the MU, so it kind of takes its time to explain a whole bunch of stuff that most of us already know.

Surprised myself. Especially after not caring much for the previous 5 issue set up. You're right there is a bit of an all-ages feel to it which could go either way. Avenging Spidey is like that too and is currently a fun read. My problem so fare is that up to now they really have explained almost nothing of merit that is most to long time readers.

    It can kind of get a bit tedious, and affects how brilliant the characters seem.

This issue had Tony and to a lesser degree Thor and Hulk show a bit of brilliance. Which was refreshing.

    It seems like the old-schoolers, which I assume you are one of, are kind of half-on-half about it... some like the some-times old-school flair, some bloody hate it since it's still Bendis to a degree.

    Most of the newer fans just hate it.

There have been a lot of disagreeable directions for Avengers since Disassembled IMO. However there have been a few fun issues here and there. Like #6 - even though the series has been quite weak.

    Me? I think it's ok.
    Kind of one of Bendis weaker books, but still enjoyable I must say. But nothing special, very by-the-numbers. You can tell Bendis is just about done with the Avengers.

    The same feeling I'm getting from Brubakers Cap about now, as well...


    Here's to Marvel NOW! \=\)

Reborn/Returned/Redone Red Skull seems like cliche premiere villian but: Must. Withhold. Judgement...
