Uncanny Avengers Review

I just read Uncanny Avengers #1 and while I was excited to pick it up, the content left something to be desired. First, I have to say that the comic is defiantly worth following for at least the first few issues. The ending left me eager to read the next issue, (but then again that’s kind of the writer’s job). While the story was a bit dry, it kept me interested throughout the comic. One of the biggest problems I had with the comic was the costume changes. Yes, we all hate Havok’s new look, but Rogue’s new suit looks like a glorified green bath rode. Her hood is up for the entire issue and makes her seem to dark (rather than the tough southern gal that she is). I do, however, like what they’ve done with the Scarlet Witch. They didn’t really change the suit; they just made it sleeker and more practical.

I will say, if they don’t increase the roster by a few members, the comic will go nowhere fast. The team is too small to make any real progress with the characters. Personally, I would love to see some X-Men/Avengers that are normally in the background, step up in this new team. I would love to see Cannonball step into the action.

What do you think? How do you feel about the new costumes? Do you think new members should be added, or do you like the team the way it is? Be sure to leave comments!!
