I read Mighty Avengers as well and my views on it are very mixed.

The action scenes vs the monsters almost felt like an old style avengers book again. Almost. Something was missing and I am not quite sure what. I did appreciate the cameo by godzilla though. I also am not sure how they failed to recognize the moloids.

On the other hand the scenes with Carol and Tony I disliked. For someone who claimed to let Carol have her own team, Tony REFUSED to let her disagree with his member pick. Why was Tony so adamant on sentry? (I still suspect he is a sentry addict, after all he went to the moon to drag sentry back in new Avengers). Why was he so adamant on getting a ninja without any good reason other than "we NEED a ninja, everyone needs ninja's nowadays". Was this Bendis poking fun at himself for overdoing Ninja's in New Avengers? Was this a hint that marvel is forcing him to use ninjas when he doesn't want them?

All in all my opinions on Mighty avengers is mixed. I will give it 2 or 3 more issues to see if it picks up or not.

Yes, the 'chose the team' conversation was fairly lame: it's Tony's team, clearly, it's not Carol's, and she's smart enough to realize that she's being played.

I think that the Sentry is there because of Bendis, not Tony. Bendis utterly failed to do anything interesting with him, and he's just giving it the old college try--I don't think he wants to be known as the scribe who reintroduced him to the MU and then failed to make him interesting. Just as he failed to make Cage or SW interesting.

Yes, the ninja thing was Bendis too--not Tony. Since when has the Avengers, the FF, or the X-men, or the Champions or the Defenders or the JLA--needed a ninja quota?

It wasn't excellent, but it was, for me, a huge step up over the dreary NA.
