    But the bottom line is, Mighty Avengers #21 could make use of a Pym Pocket, because it tries to cram too much stuff into too small a space. Being overambitious is much, much better than being boring, though, and there are some isolated glimmers of potential in this new team and Slott's new setup. Once it finds its rhythm, the new iteration of Mighty should be one to watch. Read Full Review

    Pham is weird artist. His work reminds me of several artistsat once. However, those artists have nothing in common. He draws from Coipel,Maguire, Jim Lee and Jeff Johnson. He draws the best from each of these artists,however, inkers Martinez and Miki are not the best suited for his work. Theyput too much grit and lines instead of a clear fluid inked line which wouldreinforce the strong composition and character designs of Pham. Read Full Review

    If you have not been impressed with Bendis' New Avengers and Mighty Avengers then Slott's Mighty Avengers is the title for you. If you like your Avengers done in their classic style full of tradition and steeped in their glorious continuity and history then this title is for you. On the other hand, if you do not like traditional big time super hero team titles in the vein of the Justice League of America and prefer a darker, grittier street level super team then this title is not for you.

    I'll definitely pick up the next couple of issues of this series, due mainly to the fact that I think Dan Slott is one hell of a writer. BUT, I don't know if I'll be able to stand reading this comic book unless Dan changes up the team roster SOON. In the end, I liked this story, but the inclusion of the a##hole really, really hurt my enjoyment of this comic book. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Jan 31, 2009

    Here's my major problem with this issue: timing. It comes after the formation of the New New Avengers, after Norman Osborn went public with his Dark Avengers, at a point where the Hulk is running free, where Hercules and Amadeus are in the United States, where Tony Stark has regained part of his fortune, where Quicksilver (last seen by me in Mutant Town) has been kidnapped... Blah, blah, blah. I don't dislike the issue, I just find it breakneck in it's pacing, and pretty unclear in everything except the fact that Hank Pym has had a huge upgrade in powers and abilities with the loss of his ex-wife. It's nice to see Jocasta again, and the little glimpse of romance between Vision and Stature was high-school cute. I think my greatest complaint with this issue is that I suspect it's meant to be a big ol' status quo altering issue, but most of the characters (and the Mighty Avengers title) doesn't really have a status quo to tamper with. Hank has been in a bubble, Jocasta has bee Read Full Review
