New Avengers #1

So they're the New, New Avengers? Okay. I'm still not sure which of the numerous new Avengers teams is going to be my favorite (seriously, are they trying to outnumber the X-teams?), and I'm a little sad Bucky-Cap isn't part of this group, but I like how most of the core of the New Avengers stayed intact. Spider-Man, Ms. Marvel, Wolverine, Hawkeye, and Luke Cage make for a formidable group 'specially if you throw in Iron Fist and the Thing. The first issue deals with the formation of the new team, and demons, spirits, or some such, coming over from another dimension and possessing the likes of Doctor Strange. The possession story isn't as good as the rest of the book but it's still worth a look.

For years some great heroes got kept out of the Avengers for what I always thought were stupid reasons. The Avengers should be a showcase for Marvel's best (and yes, most popular) characters. If Wolverine can be part of ten teams and books then inviting Spidey and The Thing to join seems like such a no-brainer. I like the new lineup. Asking to join should be a reward for being a great hero all these years and I am glad to finally seeing that be the case. No more posers like Wonder Man. UGH, don't get me started on that guy.
