Avengers Initiative #14

Is there a Skrull in the house? Everybody suspects that Skrulls have infiltrated the Avengers and no one trusts anyone. Admist all the hoopla, conspiracies and fears, 3-D Man reveals that he may has something to figure out who is a Skrull spy and who is not. But as Yellow Jacket, the director of the Avengers’ Initiative academy is a Skrull himself, all attempts to stop the green aliens from gaining ground on Earth may be useless. Can the Initiative function for long with all these alien spies?

This issue was both funny, and an interesting addition to the Skrulls’ Invasion crossover going on at Marvel Comics.  But there are parts that I didn’t like. I didn’t like that 3-D Man’s goggles could see the Skrulls so easily. That it wasn’t explained how that could be in the same issue is also a problem.  I also don’t like that as soon as a Skrull is found he is usually easily defeated. I’d like Skrulls to gove more trouble to super heroes.

I enjoy Caselli’s work. He gives a lot of dimensions to the characters and combined with the beautiful colouring by Rudoni, he makes me wish all comic books could look this good. The quality of the artwork on this series surprises me. After all, it is not a main Marvel Comics series, unless that is really what Marvel Comics wants. Well, I can only say that readers win, and I might have to seriously consider adding this series to my regular reading list, because the artwork looks so good.

Rating: 9 /10
