What do you think of this series? Did you guys read it? What's the deal with Enchantress? Did it knock your socks off?

If  i didn't like the Young Avengers i would have dropped this. Seeing Wiccan again plus the pretty pictures makes me continue to pick it up. You get a 2 page fight and the rest is 20 pages drenched in dialogue. I soooo didn't recognize Executioner's mom though.

I wanna read this book and find out where it's going to take Enchantress but I'm low on cash :(

Why is Enchantress even on the YOUNG Avengers anyways? :P

Oh god Princess Python, here and the return of the Scourge villains in Punisher. This is a good time for H- Z grade villains.

It was Princess Python. I agree, though. Not only was it drenched in dialogue, it was horrible dialogue. Like on one page, where Coat of Arms is talking to Norman Osborn, it seems like he's holding a conversation with himself for a little bit, like he's answering questions that she didn't even ask. Both issues are like that, though. The dialogue is really iffy and the whole book is saved by the art. I like the concept of having a team of--almost--Young Masters of Evil trying to be Young Avengers, but the whole thing is lacking in writing, in my opinion.

One could assume it's not the real Enchantress. The fact that she's been failing to speak Shakespearean correctly and other little hints have been seen in the first two issues.

Her attempts at speech remind me of Thor's daughter Torin from the Next Avengers dvd.

Art looks sharp!

Too bad the story isn't.

I was wondering who that woman was on the last page. I assumed it was Enchantress.

It's a good time for H-Z grade villains in the Marvel U and in the Bat-Books.
