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.

First off, I think it was pretty clear Tony would be calling the shots. Remember, we've been told there will be friction as to who's really in charge here.

For Sentry, Tony did promise to help him and say that Avengers would be there for him. It could be an honor thing. Or maybe cause technically Stark Tower = Sentry Watchtower he didn't want to be rude. Or maybe he realized that he's really really powerful and could be useful to hit stuff. I can see reasons for him to push for Sentry.

The ninja thing was just Bendis poking fun at himself imo
