    Chaos (Part 3) last edited by SaveMeAndy on 08/28/23 12:13PM View full history

    Captain America asks the assembled heroes why they have gathered. Black Panther tells him that they were all Avengers once; when the alarm sounded, they answered it. Nick Fury informs the heroes that they're contaminating a crime scene, and tries to get them to move to the park next door. Ms. Marvel asks Cap if it's true that Scott Lang is dead. He solemnly confirms her question, and then comforts her. The meeting is interrupted by Nick Fury cursing. Dum Dum Dugan opens his communicator to reveal that the UN is disavowing their relationship with the Avengers. Hawkeye is angry, but Captain America is more pragmatic. Fury again tries to get the heroes to disperse... until he notices a Kree warcraft in the sky.

    Fury radios his helicarrier for intel, but they tell him that their instruments aren't picking up anything. Meanwhile, the sky is filling with Kree ships that begin firing upon the crowd. Fury tells his men to look out their windows, and they finally see what's going on.

    Meanwhile, the heroes are on the defensive. Hercules manages to rip a Kree out of his ship, but the alien blasts him and runs off. Spider-Man trips him with his webs, and the Kree runs right into Captain America's shield. Cap asks the alien why they're attacking now of all times. The alien warrior rambles on about how the Supreme Intelligence foretold this day and how the Avengers would pay for their betrayal. Captain America asks how they were betrayed, but before he gets an answer a whole Kree militia beams down and starts blasting. Nick Fury screams that things aren't right: the Kree have the technology to level New York from space; they're no reason for a ground assault. Hawkeye, who had gone to get more arrows, makes his last stand. He rushes forward and manages to take out several of the alien soldiers, but then his quiver is blasted and his arrows set on fire. Out of weapons, and with no other options, Hawkeye grabs a nearby Kree and activates his jetpack. He and the alien fly into the giant Kree warship, causing it to explode.

    Captain America and the Avengers are aghast at Hawkeye's sacrifice, but only for a second. With a cry of "Avengers Assemble", he leads his superhero army against the alien invaders... who promptly beam back into their ships and fly away. As the assembled heroes try to make sense of what just happened, Doctor Strange appears as an astral projection. He apologizes for not getting there sooner, and tells them that "the magicks are being abused". Cap seems puzzled, but then a sad recognition passes across his face.

    Avengers Disassembled Part 3 0

    SummaryAs every Avenger... ever... join forces to figure out who or what is behind these strings of attacks, they are faced with more catastrophes and even more tragedy. This issue is heavy on the action and draws close to finally having an explanation for this ‘day from hell’.What I likeDoctor Strange: This issue basically ends with Doctor Strange appearing and saying “hey, I’m going to tell you what has been going on”. THANK YOU! Not only is Doctor Strange going to be in the next issue, but he...

    "Chaos" is Definitely Chaotic. 0

        This third issue of "Chaos" certainly feels like a sci-fi /disaster film but I maybe having trouble with this Bendis' blockbuster.  At the beginning of this issue many of the former Avengers have showed up at  the destroyed Avengers mansion. They answered the call for help. Nick Fury is thankful at first then he turns surly because as they showed up, they ruined the delicacy of the crime scene.  In essence ruining an investigation that didn't even begin. Gone are the clues of who's behind al...
