    This is a thought-provoking but ultimately disposable "What-If?" story, when it could have been one that took a recent event, changed it, and really did something interesting with its repercussions. It's worth a look for regular Avengers readers if only for the elements which imply a secret backstory for the Scarlet Witch's accomplice (although fans of the character will probably reject Parker's modification of their motives as completely baseless and unfounded in the original continuity), and fans who get a kick out of debating what is and isn't "real" as far as Marvel continuity goes will likely get a lot of mileage out of the writer's new interpretation of events. Parker also gets some fun jibes in at the expense of Bendis' more "celebrated" plot points from "Disassembled" (such as Hawkeye's death and Dr. Strange's denial of the existence of Chaos magic), but it's all stuff which is really only going to appeal to those who are already interested in Bendis' Avengers and their place Read Full Review
