    While "Red Zone" expands on an already big idea, the story still crackles because the Avengers are the stars. These are not mere ciphers discovering the Frankenstein Monster beneath the Pentagon's more public ideals. This is Captain America whose spirit remains unbroken and vows that the criminals hiding behind the flag will be found and punished. This is the Vision who despite being an android or perhaps because of it exhibits more humanity than his foes. This is Iron Man and the Black Panther, whose relationship has become similar to that of Superman and Batman, combine resources to find a cure. Everything about this book is perfect.

    The Avengers are Earths Mightiest Heroes, do you really need another reason to read this book? With a catch phrase like that, its bound to be worth the couple bucks.

The title is really good, and worth checking out, I say that like you dont already know that. Read Full Review

There's also a nice Captain America moment in the opening pages of this issue, and the tension between Iron Man & the Black Panther continues to make for some very enjoyable reading. However there are also a couple moments in this issue where Geoff Johns is far too obvious in his bid to cast the villains of this story as outright baddies, and personally I feel this story would've been far better served by at least making an attempt to justify the actions of the group responsible for this horrific weapon. Sure Captain America is allowed to express his regrets about the soldiers that were killed guarding this facility, but having the scientists working to make it so that it would only kill non-whites felt like an ill-conceived attempt at social commentary, tha Read Full Review
