author and artists thoughts at the end, discussing why they went the route that they with the story arc s , why inspired them That would have been a great addition While it does move at a good pace, it does feel long in parts I thought the writer was spot on with his portrayals of the various characters, with how they were written in the narrative The art was not quite as seamless as when Perez was on the book There are numerous artists after Perez left well, numerous to me , but I do not think it has completely adverse effects on the final product I think the the writer did a decent job trying to tackle some thornier issues in a comic book format in that he was trying to write to both young people and adults.I found it funny how much the other Avengers kept discussing Hank Pym s changing costumes and aliases, how these changes were signs of mental instability that Hank has suffered from in the past, yet some of the Avengers such as Scarlet Witch, of all people also had costume changes over the course of the remaining comics in the Busiek run Obviously, the Wasp has practically a new costume in each issue Scarlet Witch s costume changed a few times Thor s costume changed a little bit not much I do think this run highlights two weaknesses in comics, especially Marvel comics view spoiler The first weakness has to do with the maxi event The big event was the Maximum Security storyline, where Earth becomes the universal Australia for extraterrestrial villains Despite having some cross overs with other comics in the Event , once it was over, there were very few long term consequences other than Quasar not being able to return to Earth for some time I did find the homage to Superman being humorous only, it was Ego regressed to infanthood being discovered by an older couple in Nebraska and not Kansas But, in the end, what was the point One would think that sections of Earth would still have been in shock over the alien invasion one would also think the United Nations would have beenfocused on erecting some kind of interstellar warning system in order to better protect the planet Ah, well On a side note, I think it was a shame that, in the end, the Kree were relegated back to their former evolutionary dead end status sometime after the events of Maximum Security Maximum Security clearly stated that the Kree s evolutionary progress had been jumpstarted by the Supreme Intelligence, and that they were no longer facing universal extinction as other races evolved past them Yet, in future subsequent comics, the Kree are once again described as at an evolutionary dead end when considering their long term future Even the Inhumans describe the Kree this way and had attempted to jump start the Kree s evolutionary progress before the War of Kings event.The other weakness is how events in one comic series do not affect any of the other series Marvel is publishing Washington, DC, was destroyed Wiped off the face of the map well, it s citizens were Nothing is mentioned of this in any of the other comics being published that I am aware of I shall have to try to look into it further, next time I am at a comic book shop One would think that something would have been mentioned about Kang having taken over THE WHOLE PLANET by one of the other superhero teams or individuals Spider Man and Wolverine are clearly shown as having eluded capture, yet nothing is said of the X Men being captured by Kang s forces It is like when Xorn took over New York City in the New X Men run he destroys New York City in the process, but nothing is really ever said about this conquest in the other comics I was always a big fan of Marvel s continuity and attempts to follow continuity To me, it is a shame that continuity is no longer a concern in the comics But that is just me I ve already spent too much time talking about it hahahaha hide spoiler There is a lot going on in this compilation It got pretty crazy, there, by the end I did enjoy the lengthy Kang story at the end of the run, though I thought it was a great powerful story arc it had some incredible moments in it view spoiler like Thor walking through DC after it was destroyed or Firebird telling Thor off because Thor was ready to bail on the human race after the conflict with Kang was over or the Avengers agonizing over how a new species of life will be exterminated in order to save humanity from Alkhema s children taking over the planet There are also some incredible bits of artwork throughout the back portion of this run hide spoiler view spoiler I did like how Busiek tried to resolve Hank s various mental issues in this novel by making Hank Pym a whole man It was an interesting take on a character who should be fairly interesting but seems to constantly be shackled by past failures Hank is definitely a lightning rod for people s emotions most seem unable to forgive him for striking Jan while they were married even though that was the writer s choice for such an act to occur and I am not saying physical abuse of any sort in any relationship is okay It was a one time event and yet it is still held against him Despite Hank s internal struggles being resolved especially in the yearly annual , future authors would continue to bring his past back to haunt him It s kinda crazy, that writers were unable to move past Hank s past and write about him in apositive fashion hide spoiler view spoiler It has always struck me as kind of odd how Simon and Wanda s relationship evolved like it did over the course of the series They were so madly in love with each other, constantly copulating or so it seemed , and then they went their separate ways and decided to be really, really old, good friends instead of continuing to pursue aserious relationship It makes me wonder if authors writers do not know how to write about a long term, stable relationship other than maybe Sue and Reed Richards of the Fantastic Four, which still managed to grow and evolve over time At least they could agree to remain as friends hahahah hide spoiler It is always fun funny to read how various characters are written, but Captain America always strikes me as the most funny view spoiler He tends to be written as a character who has a strong moral code and inner strength of character that allows him to see things issuesclearly than his fellow teammates Yet oftentimes this inner value system seems to have double standards, based on who is currently writing about the character in a given storyline and depending on how much the writer worries cares about continuity with prior issues At times he is written as overbearing and judgemental because he believes so strongly about a particular issue other times, he is written as wrestling internally over decisions he has to make and are they the right ones Which is all well and good, but oftentimes his approval or disapproval seems to depend on his mood sthan this internal coda again, I realize this has to do with the authors writersthan the character himself At the same time, I also realize the writer is using Captain America s character to express the writer s approval of or disapproval for a particular action situation hide spoiler Overall, I do feel this was one of the best runs in the Avengers series I thought the Masters of Evil taking over Avengers Mansion in the first volume to be especially good, as well as when the Avengers took on the Greek gods say, issues 270 286ish I also liked Gatherer s storyline with Proctor as the leader of the villains in the 90s Like any other runs, it had some great moments and some stinkers I thought the writer did a good job discussing various issues faith issues, varying levels of tolerance versus respect, how persons are worthy of respect because each person has value as an individual, the slippery slope of justifying one s actions after the fact, the dangers of intolerance, acts committed during times of war, etc over the course of the novel But it was still fun to read

    Such a long long book I was really impressed how Busiek wove in so many different stories together The story telling reminded me of early Claremont X men, where each issue is exploring a central plot and advancing a few side plots This Avengers volume brought so many elements together for a great climax I will admit there were some story branches I found myself not caring about The Triune Understanding especially and sometimes there were so many things converging that it felt like a mess.O Such a long long book I was really impressed how Busiek wove in so many different stories together The story telling reminded me of early Claremont X men, where each issue is exploring a central plot and advancing a few side plots This Avengers volume brought so many elements together for a great climax I will admit there were some story branches I found myself not caring about The Triune Understanding especially and sometimes there were so many things converging that it felt like a mess.Overall it was pretty good storytelling, I think if these were characters I waspassionate about I read it mainly for Warbird s arcs which were all stellar then it would have been evencaptivating for me

    This was a very nice, over arcing story that seemed to start as just a few adventures after another, but it also gets into how the Avengers deal with race, PR, team dynamics, and of course, saving the world But when it all starts tying together when Kang threatens the Earth, it starts getting really great.

    Even with an acclaimed writer and a lot of interesting ideas and highs and lows, everything here feels so flat and wooden I don t know why.

    Busiek is a grand storyteller Between that and the wonderful artists, the echoes of Lee Kirby were there to be seen Overall, a whole lot of fun.
