The Avengers fight Luke Cage until they can get the Eye of Agamotto from him. There is evil magic in the air and the heroes must stop it before demons from another dimension breach ours. Is all hope lost?
This story fits perfectly well with what has gone on for the last year in the previous New Avengers series. In fact, it’s the same plot but whoever was pulling the string of the Hood, is now pulling a bunch of magic wielders’ strings instead. If you want to read the same comic book written by Bendis last year, this is the best comic book to waste your time here. If it wasn’t for the jokes and snappy comments he puts all over the place, this comic book would really be a joke.
The joke here was saved by Immonen who is a first class artist who doesn’t seem to get the respect he deserves. He’s a pro and he delivers no matter what comic book he’s working on. Of all the new Avengers series since the heroic Age debut, this one is the least interesting and the first one I’ll be dropping, even if the artwork here is incredible.
Rating: 7 /10
