Users who pulled this comic:


  1. I liked the last issue until he started reciting the Gettysburg address.

  2. Me likes this cover at least!

  3. Norse Gods take up arms against humanity? did I miss something?

  4. I actually liked last issue. Still one of my favorite Avengers books.

  5. um wats going on in avengers lol.  im so behind

  6. These last two issues has me really looking forward to Spencer’s Ultimate X-Men. He writes comics like they did back in the early 2000s.

  7. Three straight stories, each one built around a social message. Obviously Spencer has brought an agenda into this series that isn’t just “tell exciting superhero stories.” 100 other iFanboy members can’t be wrong – that’s how many pulls this series has dropped with the issue, and I think I won’t be far behind. These aren’t the kind of stories I’m looking for, and I’ll be curious to see if there is a larg enough audience for social-message-driven stories in today’s entertainment environment to carry this book for long.

  8. anything Valkyrie is just awesome.

  9. @rwpos  other than the origin story of Valkyrie, what subtext did I miss? I may have checked out about half-way through the issue. Really, I should have given up after the first arc.

  10. I was actually looking forward to Spencer taken over the writing because Brubaker obviously didn’t really know what to do with the book and was threading water right after the first arc. Morning Glories, which I haven’t read, gets great reviews, but this was pretty bad right from the beginning.
    I can’t stand if comics are written as if they are movies, something Spencer does in every issue of SA so far, and in this one it was the worst. Cliché movie szenes that take up almost a third of the book, and I don’t knwo if it’s the inker(s), but Eaton looked better before, too.
