This issue focuses on the relationship between Mockingbird and Ronin. They are powerless Avengers, married, but forwarded in the middle of the action and plots against the Avengers. Will their relationship last longer than the next fight with the villain next door? This is another filler issue the way Bendis writes them when he is doing a major crossover. It ads some details to the bigger conflict, but is otherwise somewhat irrelevant. His Dark Avengers series has more juicy details. Here, he tries to do what several writers have attempted over the years. He’s trying to prove that Ronin and Mockingbird are not clones of DC Comics’ Green Arrow and Black Canary. It’s not convincing and the quick wordy jabs the characters spat at one another do little to convince. The dialogue is weak and hip. The artwork is good but not memorable. Frankly, I’m not sure why I’m reading this series. It’s been bad for months now.
