    -- there is no explanation of how the group is formed, or the what is the Hood´s plan or anything, the other team characters seems statues and there is no kind of dynamism and all act totally out of character, all it is a confusing mess, and only you can worry about these characters if they appear in other series (as the case of the Enchantress, which was my only interest in the series but is treated even worse than in previous appearances in other series).


    The art does not help anything either, --


    -- that make this book totally irrelevant (even more).


    It´s sad to say it, but it is what is happening.

It certainly seems that way.

Without surprise, it will probably suffer the same fate as Black Knight:

It's too bad, because the latest installment, Black Knight #4, was comparitively more palatable than it's terrible first three issues. This is a cheap segue to the Avengers connection in it...

Black Knight 004

This actually was decent spotlight on Dane (and his 2 compatriots featured on the bland poser cover). Of course it was at the expense of making Old Man Cap look bad. Steve foolishly chose to wield the cursed Ebony Blade in battle; he bold face lied about the purity of the Avengers not toppling governments - 'cuz how many secret Avengers missions has he personally spearheaded already now; and he basically and debatably let the wanted murderer go.

Sadly, Rebecca Stevens got more characterization than all the Unity Squad members combined. Well, with the possible exception of Deadpool who did deliver a number of good lines for a change - although he did... boringly just surrender between panels when she was held hostage. [Loved the New Adventures of Old Christine line - Clark Gregg was very funny in that.]

The art did not help here either but it was much more likable than Illuminati's. And the ongoing lack of exposition on Weirdworld -which is supposed to be relevant- is maddening. We didn't even get how they were getting back home (although the k.i.s.s. answer is Doc Voodoo). However, that may be 'cuz they ain't done judging by the next issue cover with the failing Unity Squad Leader http://www.pixhost.org/show/67/31476432_blackknigh5.jpg apparently getting his dose of bad karma.
