The Avengers team up with the incredible RED HULK as the Hood makes a crazy power move to bring the Infinity Gauntlet together once more. But the Hood has no idea the power he is toying with and who is coming to earth to challenge him for it. Another earth-shattering chapter of Avengers crazy by Bendis and Romita Jr! Plus: another illustrated chapter of the oral history of the Avengers!

    Even a weak Bendis script is better than most, so this comic is still fun to read. But I can't help but wish for a different opponent for the team. As I've said before, The Hood is an interesting character, but he's no Thanos. Read Full Review

    Minor quibbles aside, this was a really good issue. More than that, it was a really good issue where Bendis and Romita Jr. managed to eliminate, or at least minimize, their usual weaknesses. Read Full Review

    Many earlier reviews of this series have noted that John Romita Jr.'s artwork is being done a disservice by the overly heavy inking of Klaus Janson. I've been missing the comparatively light touch of Scott Hanna from Romita's Amazing Spider-Man days. Surprisingly enough, Hanna jumps on board this month to ink the Hood-centric scenes. The difference in clarity and line quality in these pages is readily apparent. I can only hope Hanna remains on board in some capacity going forward. Read Full Review

    That's a real disappointment too… I really thought something was in the works after the last issue. Read Full Review

    "Avengers" #9 finally exposes the Illuminati and reveals how the Hood began his quest for the Infinity Gems. It's an issue driven by characters, something that Bendis and Romita both excel at. For some, like me, this issue has been a long time coming, and it delivers. Read Full Review
