Armies are mounting against the Avengers on every side, and even the Gods have turned their backs on Earth. With humanity facing it’s gravest threat yet, Steve Rogers and his Secret Avengers will make some hard choices about what’s just in times of war. And even as they do, a new danger of a different kind emerges– one that confronts them not in the name of evil or fear, but freedom and liberty.

Users who pulled this comic:


  1. I need to catch up on this one but I’ll enjoy seeing what Spencer does with the team.

  2. The Point One issue of this was a nice little done in one story, so I’m pretty excited to see where Spencer takes this book. After the attrocious Brubaker run, it really can go nowhere but up.

  3. I had dropped this book but came back on with the 12.1 issue because I have liked Eaton since his CrossGen days.

  4. after that point one, I think this book is back

  5. Enjoyed the point one issue so I’m gonna hold back on taking it off my pull list.

  6. havent read any secret avengers before, but ill be checking this out for the fear itself tie-in

  7. First time reading Secret Avengers…Other than the Lincoln Memorial panels which were ridiculous but fun, I wasn’t feeling this…Ending was way over the top for me…really melodramatic.

  8. I agree with @albabycakes. This was disappointing. Another point — do we know why Sin is attacking D.C. yet? Has that happened, or are we seeing Fear Itself unfold out of sequence?

  9. Ending was a little hokey, but the Lincoln smashing was surprising and actually fun.

  10. The speech worked for me. i know it was corny, but it worked. And Lincoln smashing was awesome.

  11. I disliked Spencer’s .1 issue – superheroes vs. Wikileaks. Now this, a solo-Beast tale where he teams up with a superpowered civil war re-enactor, who prefers recreating post battle speeches over the battles themselves. That, with a dash of Robert’s Rules of Order and C-Span thrown in for good measure. I’m sensing a depressing trend: this book has become a thinly-veiled series of civics lessons. Yuck.

  12. @rwpos – I didn’t read Spencer’s first issue, but agree superheroes vs. Wikileaks sounds awful.  This issue worked for me, though.  Could be my love for the bouncin’ Beast, who finally takes center stage in this issue.  But more likely it’s when Lincoln stood up and handled his business.  So I thought this issue earned the civics lesson – but I agree if that’s all the book is we’re in trouble…

  13. Blech. This was not a comic book that I enjoyed reading.

  14. Wasn’t into this issue at all, which is a shame as I’m a huge Spencer fan. Ho hum.
