My background in Avengers goes back to about 1978 but I only collected comics in spurts so I'm not an expert or anything. Kinda funny then that one of the most memorable Avengers comics I remember from being that young had to do with Wonderman coming back from the dead, it was some kinda of voodoo thing but I don't remember what issue it was or anything.

Of course Wonderman coming back from the dead is a big part of this graphic novel so it felt almost like nothing had changed in all those years. I have read some of Busiek's other stuff and really liked it but I thought this was kinda boring by comparison. Some of the cheesiness was painful. Maybe at the ripe old age of 44 I have just outgrown men in tights?

The other problem I had was all the links to other comics. It made me feel like I had to collect 8 different series just to keep up with what was going on. I realize it's marketing but it's annoying.

I did still like the art a lot, Perez was always one of my favorites. ( )

I'm still a little boggled by the wide array of characters, and damn, is Wanda always that emo?, but I did enjoy this and I will certainly be reading more Avengers. ( )

The storyline was pretty basic. It wasn't boring, but it wasn't terribly complex either. I'd probably give the plot three stars, maybe three and a half.

The art is very colorful and vibrant. I also liked how Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch were drawn, and I loved Wanda's new costume, which was more in tune with her roots. The art is definitely at least four stars. ( )
