    Olivier Copiel again impresses with a distinctive larger than life interpretation of the Avengers that rises above the simple standards of the comic book's past history. Many an artist has given the Avengers realism and made the book aesthetically appealing. Anatomy has been recognized. Visual plotting has entertained, but this is the only time I've seen the Avengers become something other than a bunch of costumes--however well drawn--on a page. With the Olivier Copiel and Johns at the helm, you have faith in the Avengers as heroes. Read Full Review

    The story is moving forward a little slower than I would like to see, but I will give Geoff Johns the benefit of the doubt, as the issue does a pretty solid job of developing the threat, and we get a pretty solid, if not overly surprising revelation on the final page, as we learn where this deadly gas was developed, and by whom. Where this issue really earns its keep though is with its character interaction & development, as there's some great moments in this issue. From yet another wonderful clash of personalities between Iron Man & the Black Panther, to a fairly touching moment between the Scarlet Witch & the Vision, this issue is sure to leave Avengers fans happy. The book also delivers a pretty solid moment where Warbird gets a chance to show she's an ideal second-in-command behind Cap, and one does have to love the sense of betrayal that is conveyed in the final lines of this issue.
