    Chos work continues to charm with strong compositions and character designs. He also does quite well in the fight sequence. Its rare to see an accomplished artist master both rendering and storytelling at once. Here he gives the Avengers a wide-screen budget for a comic book series that should be a television series. Its really impressive that he can keep up the quality unaided. Read Full Review

    Mighty Avengers #3 continues to trend that Bendis has established of not being in a hurry to advance a single plotline. I just don't think that a team title is best suited for Bendis' talents. I know that Marvel wants to have a big name on the Avengers, but I just don't think Bendis is the man to get the job done. Read Full Review

    Cho provides solid storytelling for most of the issue, amidst all the cheesecake, but the really scary moments of Terminator-esque transformations he hints at with Ultron dont really come off; she has no costume, just a glistening silver body, and she looks rather bland against all her spandex foes.

    This is the Avengers written as half popcorn-action-movie, half sex-comedy, and although it's fun in a silly sort of way, it just doesn't make for anywhere near as compelling a story as it might have done if Bendis was taking it seriously. Indeed, the crass and simplistic nature of the book leads me to believe that Bendis is letting his id do all the work here, throwing the most basic elements of his story together without any consideration for the kind of refinement or sophistication that can be found in some of his other work. My enthusiasm for this title has slowly waned over the course of these three issues to the point at which I really don't feel at all motivated to pick up the next, and considering the second wind that New Avengers seems to be experiencing as a result of the Civil War fallout and the roster rotation, I'm surprised to see that the same level of energy isn't being found here. Although action junkies and those who view superheroes through a filter of ironic deta Read Full Review
