    I definitely can't wait to see Fury and his Avengers take on the Red Skull. I'd really also like to see a little more play out in the 2011 story. If Bendis can find a balance to that soon, this stands to be one of his best Avengers arcs since he took over. Read Full Review

    You can't help but feel that Bendis has been watching Jonathan Hickman jiggering with the Marvel timeline in S.H.I.E.L.D. and wanted to give it a go - but so far - for this story - it isn't working. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Rob Rasmussen Mar 14, 2011

    I wish the past storyline wasn't intermingled within. I could have lived with the bookends much like last issue, but every time it jumped in time I was pulled out. Bendis does give us some good lines and a well told story, and I am really digging the team composition and camaraderie. Superia does steal the show every single time she's in panel, from yelling at her henchmen for using her Christian name to just dismantling the team, she is a force of awesome. Unfortunately, what could have been a good 4-4.5 is merely 3 of 5 stars due to the lackluster tale in between. Read Full Review

    More than a little hit-and-miss, but still worth a look. Read Full Review
