Review: The Avengers #7

Is Red Hulk joining the team? Is he going to survive this issue?

I don't care what people say, I liked reading about Red Hulk. Now that he's basically come to terms with who he has become, it could be very interesting to see him interacting on a team...if he survives. 

The Good 

With the beginning of a new arc, we almost get a little breather after all the craziness of the Kang-Ultron Future war. We get to see mention of the disappearance of Attilan on Earth as well as a confrontation with Wonder Man and why he's so against the formation of the Avengers. It almost sounds like this could be a nice calm issue after all the crazy action in the first six issues except....the Infinity Gems are involved. A mysterious individual is seeking them out. You know that can't mean good news for the heroes. 

The Bad 

The last time we saw the Infinity Gems, they were under the care of the Illuminati. Because of their power and how dangerous they could be in the wrong hands, you would think they would be just a little harder to locate. Wonder Man is still acting like a jerk. I'm not faulting the issue for that but let's hope we find out what his deal is soon. There was a lot of hub bub about Red Hulk possibly joining the Avengers. We don't get to see a whole lot of him in this issue. We'll have to wait for issue #8. 

The Verdict - 3.5/5 

I've been enjoying the series and dynamic of the new team. It's nice to see a little bit of downtime as we prepare for the next big dose of craziness. It could be all the hype over Red Hulk being in the issue but I simply wanted more. I have been waiting for a year to see how he will interact in a team setting. With the return of the Infinity Gems...the Avengers are going to need all the help they can get.
