docdoom said:Actually, shocking though this may sound, I enjoyed this more than many Avengers issues for a LONG time.
And yes it had it's colossal faults (Why exactly does Echo include the line "If you're reading this..." Should it not be more along the lines of "If you're reading this Matt, then congratulations on getting over the whole 'being blind' thing?" But yes, I enjoyed the issue.
Why, you may ask?
Because it's not the Avengers.
WHAAAAA? You may ask. What is Doom smoking!?
But it's not the Avengers.
And I can stop pretending. Due to the lack of actual Avengers on this team, I can tell myself that this is NOT the real time of Avengers- it's even less Avenger like than New Avengers. And this time, there's an alternative where I can say "The REAL Avengers are here- it has Black Widow, Wasp, Ms Marvel, Wonder Man, Iron Man- it's Avengers enough for me."
So I can pretend to myself that this loser NA team is the latest incarnation of the Defenders or whoever, but NOT the Avengers. And that frees me of my greatest problem with this book; that nit's supposed to be an Avengers story. As a consequence, I enjoy this.
Most of you despise NA for everything, but I've always made clear that I mostly dislike the characters, the threats etc which make it not a real Avengers book. Unlike you lot, I generally enjoyed the writing okay. So now I can happily ready my real avengers every month and my TOTALLY DIFFERENT TEAM every month.
Never thought I'd say this but props to Bendis.
Glad, you can find a way to enjoy this book. To bad that it says AVENGERS in big letters on the cover. LOL
