Time To Clean House (or at least the Avengers Mansion)

The New Avengers barely survived their magical battle. It's time to clean up and figure out who the heck is going to be on the team. 
 

The Good 

There isn't a lot of action in this issue but it's always nice to be able to take a breather and allow the characters to reassess everything. The New Avengers not only have a mansion that needs to be rebuilt, they also have to look at their own team. We've already seen Hawkeye leave the team (since he was also on the regular Avengers team). 
 
We also find out some little tidbits about Luke Cage's past, see how they could possibly pay for repairs and what Spider-Man thinks about Victoria Hand, Norman's former right hand gal. Of course Luke and Jessica get a nanny (who's identity has already been leaked out). 
 

The Bad 

I do enjoy these relaxing issues from time to time but some of the dialogue can almost feel too cutesy. I understand and appreciate the closeness and banter they can have with each other, it strengthens the dynamic of the team but I don't think everyone can be a comedian all the time. Also, I felt bad for D-Man. Maybe I'm the only one. 
 

The Verdict 

There has been some clarification on the team roster. Even though this issue allows everyone to unwind after the last big battle, we do find out little bits of information. The story and characters are moving forward as the stage is being set for the New Avengers next adventure. Bendis shows that this is more than just another Avengers team. These guys feel more like a family. WIth the new members added to the team, I'll be looking forward to what will happen next.

    When Brian Michael Bendis wants to be funny, he can be pretty damn hilarious. This issue shows that as the team settles down in the aftermath of averting a mystical apocalypse to sort out what they are going to be about and how they are going to operate. This is something people have been waiting for to see just what will set the New Avengers apart from the rest and who will actually make up the team. It is not entirely satisfying in that regard, but it is still a strong and entertaining issue. ...

      Cover The cover is kind of sketchy. Story Luke tries to get the mansion repaired but, does not want help from Cap but, it seems like he is going to need the money from him after all. Doctor Strange wakes up from a 15 hour nap and everyone on the team want him to be an Avenger and at first does not accept but, than says he will do it. Victoria Hand gives everyone pay checks from Cap the only one angry about this is Luke because he does not want hand outs. But Jessica yells at him because they n...
