I thoroughly enjoyed reading this compilation although I wish they would have had 'Easter Eggs' in the form of the author and artists thoughts at the end discussing why they went the route that they with the story arcs 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 uite 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 adultsI 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 spoilerThe 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 conseuences other than uasar 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 been focused 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 subseuent 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 eventThe 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 conuest 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 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 messOverall it was pretty good storytelling I think if these were characters I was passionate about I read it mainly for Warbird's arcs which were all stellar then it would have been even captivating 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 LeeKirby were there to be seen Overall a whole lot of fun
