Avengers A.I. #12: Overall in this series there was something missing and things I liked.
Hank Pym, I liked how he had his confidence and realized how important he was to the universe.
Vision: always loved the character, but did not like his new powers which I don't know if they were ever fully explained. I have not recently looked them up on internet.
Doombot: Loved the character. Was looking forward to Doom himself or sending Kristoff to fetch or destroy Dommbot. Even a meeting with Ben Grimm.
Victor: nice developtment of becoming comfortable being an Avenger.
Protector II and Agent Chang didn't care about. Didn't feel Chang ever joined the group, Protector for that matter.
Would like to see this team be included in the main team, even as a back up feature. I think there is more than they could have done with the book
New Avengers #17
I like the relationship with T'Challa and Namor. He is a man of his word, how will he kill Namor, unless in battle Namor asks him to kill him.
The art has been a disappointment for me. I think Rags art was better in DC. But the Hulk is now a part of the Illuminati. That will no doubt be explored in the next issue with the battle in #19.
Of the two, due to the art I would say New Avengers was a bit difficult.
I do think Avengers World is a bit drawn out, not as bad as Uncanny Avengers.
I'm with you on NA - I actually loved the interaction between Namor and T'Challa in this issue. Good to see each of them extending very cautious olive branches, and their reactions to each other flowed organically.
I realize most of the issue centered on a fake JLA surviving incursions, and it did seem a bit tedious until the last page made it relevant to our Illuminati. I think Hickman is trying to hammer home the enormity of what it means to obliterate a world by showing us that world's champions in their final moments. Unfortunately it's going to make the Illuminati even more heinous when they destroy the JLA world, but I guess that is the point of the entire NA series.
