Aw, I saw that no one had reviewed this book and thought I’d do at least a bit to honor the title’s passing.

In a time when every other Avengers title was depressing, mired in beurocracy or simply populated by psychotic murderers, Mighty offered us a classic team having classic adventures and rehabilitating one of the most interesting and flawed characters in the Marvel U.

Did it stumble at times? Sure. Was the art inconsistant? It sure was (what was up with that Loki torture issue?!). But it had the heart and that Avenging spirit that makes a book feel special. It reminded me of the Busiek/Perez run that made me fall in love with comics, and you can’t say much better than that.

This issue does a very nice job of tying up all the loose plot threads. Slott has a serious eye for plotting and while his stories can get a little long in the tooth he never lets a plotpoint drop. I really appreciated the satisfying explanations for some of Hank’s wackier behavior toward the end of the series (even if it did require a Seige spoiler… still kinda miffed about that).

So farewell, Mighty Avengers. Like your central character you’ve had your ups and downs, but your spirit, creativity and classic charm more than made up for it.
