    The New Avengers are about to face their biggest threat...the, revitalized, the resurrected, the rejuvenated H.A.M.M.E.R, led by none other than Norman Osborn. What insanity is about to be unleashed on the world and what can the Avengers do to stop it?!

    The New Avengers show up at the Stark Resilient lab in New Jersey where they find a brand new Ultimo fighting against Iron Man. Quick to act the New Avengers hop out and start fighting the robot head on. Not heeding Tony’s original pleas to stop fighting it, the robot expels all the kinetic energy it collected from the head on fight and knocks the Avengers back. Dr. Strange casts a spell that allows the Avengers to more properly engage Ultimo, which works for the most part. As Wolverine slashes away at the giant robot, it unleashes a smaller robot to capture him and take a blood sample. Too fast for chase it goes back to its master, none other than Norman Osborn running the show from an A.I.M. facility.

    Note: The variant cover is a homage to the classic X-Men #101!

    Finally! a proper team book! Was it really so hard Bendis? 0

    After having to deal with two long average story arcs (issue 1-6 and 9-13) The tittle is finally feeling like a superhero team book since issue 16 which just turned epic (Daredevil joining as I read Mark Waid's run is a big treat). Now at a post fear itself we get to see our heroes fighting a brand new Ultimo controlled by none other than H.A.M.M.E.R's forces.The issue starts simply with most of the team arriving at Stark Resilient which is being attacked by Ultimo (Why do I keep thinking of Sta...

    I consider this issue as a setback of all the good things that Bendis & Deodato have conquered and established in the past 5 issues in the title, not only because the story was a little bizarre (Iron MAn needs help and is aided by the New Avengers? Don't think so, much more likely that his buddies of the Avengers would attend this call), but because how the breaking news of the next plot (the whole Norman Osborn taking over the leadership of H.A.M.M.E.R. and other criminal organizations) wer...

    Good but.... 0

    I'm sure everyone knows by now DD was NOT in this issue, not even in the team line up on the intro page.  For all the hype put into his joining,  the whole "Who is Avengers material?" or "Are the Avengers Daredevil material." lines from last issue,  and him being on the cover,  made for a very disappointing issue as he's the only reason I picked up this book.  Some one owes me some cash........  Ok, negative intro rant over and on to the issue itself:  GOOD = Cover: Although misleading, I love i...
