Once again, these were in the wrong order. They should have all come at some point before FF Annual #3 at least. That didn’t stop them from being awesome though! These three issues pick up the story of the early Avengers as they are about to go through some roster changes. After the Wasp’s shooting in issue #2, she and Giant Man are questioning their involvement and decide to leave; Thor is called off to Asgard for some godly duties; Captain America heads to South America to rescue Rick and finally defeat Zemo.

Then we get some new members: Hawkeye and renegade mutants, Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch. Subtract Iron Man, add back in Captain America as the new leader, and the new lineup is complete. Everyone rejoice!

This series did not disappoint, I loved the whole thing. The writing and art were consistently great, and it was a cool approach to a series.

One thing to note: when I got to the end I realized Spider-Man wasn’t in the series at all. I was under the impression he was, which is why it was on the list. But — surprise — he’s actually in one of the issues of the second volume. I guess I’ll have to add that in. As annoying as this mistake is, I can’t really complain; this series was just too good.
