    So if you're following Siege, you'll want to pick this up. If not, just be patient a couple of months and the new and improved Avengers will be here. Read Full Review

    I still call shenanigans on this being a Siege crossover at all, and as an issue of New Avengers it only approaches satisfactory. There are a few good moments along the way, and Immonen knocks it out of the park on at least two pages, but if you're looking for good clean Asgardian smackdown, maybe wait until next month.

    Spider-woman is under mind control by lower grade villains and attacking Spider-man. Spider-man dares not hurt his ally, but time is running out and something has to be done before someone gets hurts. Will Spider-woman snap out of it? This is another filler story with a useless premise that does not show the Avengers at their best, safe for the original Captain America. Its also a preparation of sort for the Siege storyline. Skip this one if you are on a budget. I like the two sets of artists used here, but their work is wasted on such a mediocre story. Read Full Review

    Overall, the book carries on the overall story of these New Avengers well, offering enough little moments to satisfy. New readers shouldn't be lost or confused. Bendis doesn't drop much exposition, but a quick read of the opening text page should fill a new reader in on everything they need to know. Acuna's art is a little disappointing, and that whole storyline is fairly standard, if entertaining, stuff. The rest of the issue lives up to everything you'd expect in the series. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Feb 27, 2010

    So, herein lies my issue: Even with greater powers, the villains (while creepy last issue) are treated completely as jokes. Not only that, The Living Laser seems to have taken a power DOWNGRADE, since the last story I remember him being in allowed him to nearly kill Iron Man with all the tools at I.M.'s disposal. Plus, he's INTANGIBLE. Jessica's rage is a nice touch, and plays very genuine, and Spidey has a couple awesome bits of dialogue, but once again I have finished an issue of New Avengers feeling that the whole thing is incredibly padded. Since this is part two of two, there isn't even the usual excuse of "writing for the trade" to fall back on, either. What we have is an issue that just really doesn't have anything to it. Breaking the story where we did gave us a big cliffhanger in#61, but #62 is a complete anti-climax, as Spider-Woman quickly breaks Mandrill's hold (something that the Valkyrie's godlike nature couldn't do twenty years ago, mind you), Luke punches out the Laser, Read Full Review
