  1. Cassaday… what happened to you???

  2. Probably my favorite Marvel book right now. Read the last issue like four times. Wish Ellis was on this for 12 issues because an oversized hardcover collection of 12 Ellis issues on this would be awesome.

  3. Maleev is doing 2 books this month ? This guy can draw.

  4. So is Maleev doing both this issue and the finale of Ellis’s run? Cause Immonen was slated to do #21, but now it looks like Maleev is doing it.

    I’m not a huge fan of the guy’s style but so far not a single issue of this run has disappointed me.

  5. Also a favorite title of mine, and I would LOVE if the Done in One format kept going, too.

  6. Loving this title. Looking forward to what RR brings to the table.

  7. I feel like I really missed out on this. How far back does Ellis’s little run go?

  8. Decided to give this a try because of the great reviews. To be honest, I don’t get all the hype. I found this book to be drawn badly, and found the story uninteresting. Might read it again, but at the moment, I really didn’t care for it.

    • Okay, I re-read the issue. I liked it a bit more, because I could better understand what the heck was going on. I would change my 3 out of 5 score to a 3.8 out 5.

  9. I thought this issue was pretty good BUT I don’t think I would have any idea what was going on if I didn’t read the summary on the solicit…

    • Agreed. It was confusing and not a good first issue for someone trying the comic. Still enjoyed it though, especially because it was trying to do something big. 3/5

  10. I couldn’t have loved this issue or these one-shots more.

    A quick question though for anyone who can explain it (spoilers):

    If Black Widow returned to Zero Point and then hit the first button, weren’t the Avengers ALREADY fatally shot?
