    I can't recommend this book enough. The merits of Marvel's Initiative drive can be debated, but the fact remains it gave us The Order, and it deserves some praise because of that. Read Full Review

    The whole outlaw aspect is a kind of return to the old days of the Defenders, but the concept isn't quite as accomplished at the end of the story. The Avengers after all know where the Defenders live. If they really wanted to stop them, all they have to do is go and get them. You can argue that in their hearts, they do not wish to do this, but I can't believe S.H.I.E.L.D. is going to let bygones be bygones. Read Full Review

    I realize that comic book covers are often misleading, but I take exception when the cover & the preview copy to an issue promises one thing, while the story itself fails to deliver anything remotely close to what had been promised. Don't buy this issue expecting to see the fight the cover shows, as except for a couple panels, you won't find much to get excited about in these pages. What's more after spending five issues arriving at this point, Kurt Busiek & Jo Duffy apparently decided the best solution was to offer up a villain who could be defeated through non-action. I mean not only is this a silly finishing note, but it's also a remarkably dull one. Except for the wonderful Carlos Pacheco cover that graces this comic, I found myself disliking pretty much everything about this issue, though I suspect a large part of this animosity stems from the simple fact that this issue offers up such a lame finish instead of going out with the big bang that it had set up.
