Written by Allan Heinberg
Art and cover by Jim Cheung

Size: pages
Price: 3.99

We’re almost at the halfway mark for this Young Avengers sequel, and already it’s proving to be better than the original series; Allan Heinberg has refined his writing style, making each character feel like a necessary component to the story, rather than an addition to illustrate prowess as a writer. Everyone feels unique, throughout, and the story manages to maintain a keen sense of rhythm and intrigue that only increases the joy of reading it. The biggest surprise of the issue is how well Heinberg writes Dr. Doom; here is a man in love, broken down from his sinister origins and transformed into something different – it almost makes him a more formidable opponent and you can’t help but think that something sinister is going on in the background. There’s bound to be ulterior motives for Marvel’s greatest villain, and we’re sure to see them in the next issue. Jimmy Cheung maintains his high level of artwork from the earlier issues in the series, and the previous Young Avengers monthly; it’s almost cruel to compare him to other artists given the sheer scale of his pencils and the way they seem to get better with every page. The battle scenes in this issue are glorious to behold, Cheung surpassing himself as a master of the craft; it’s almost a shame we’ve only got five more issues to enjoy this truly magnificent display.

Story: 5 - Excellent
