    It's not a big issue - it's mostly setting up future events - but it does so very well indeed. And the former Power Man is long overdue for the spotlight. Read Full Review

    The dinner is interrupted by Ms. Marvel, a falling object and Dr. Doom all crashing into the street across from the restaurant. (That's Marvel's New York for you.) What follows is a husband and wife takedown of what is actually a Doombot before the other New Avengers arrive, followed by a group meal, Jones' decision about being a hero, and Spider-Man getting in the last word at Cage's expense.

    Daniel Acuna is one of those creators that's really hit or miss for me, but his work on this issue is okay. The date scene looks nice, warm, and welcoming, the action I full of energy. His Thing doesn't look great, it trends a bit too much towards the old "lumpy oatmeal" took for my taste, but other than that, it's a good issue all-around. Read Full Review

    New Avengers Vol. 2 has generally felt like a series lacking in direction. But as long as the spotlight remains fixed on the Cage family, that isn't so much an issue. Between these two characters and a new extended plot involving a familiar Marvel villain, hopefully this series can establish itself in a way it failed to do in the first arc. Read Full Review

    Even though I didn't necessarily hate this issue because of the exciting stuff that happens, the issue had several chances for me to get really interested in the Jessica-as-Jewel storyline and never once went in that direction. Instead of me saying "That Doombot action was awesome!", I should be saying "I'm really glad Jessica is back in the game! And I suppose that Doombot action was kinda cool" I guess." Read Full Review
