Avengers #1

Steve Rogers puts together a new team of Avengers. Not bad for a first issue. We get Kang, Silly Putty from the future (heh), awkward conversations and reunions, and the feel of something new and important starting here. However, the threat of kids from the future is far from the slamdunk opening arc I hoped, and Wonder Man's refusal to join is forced and hamfisted. Gee, I "wonder" if that's going to be an important? Sigh. It may not be all I hoped for, or living up to the promise of the Heroic Age, but it's definitely worth a look.
