Avengers #1

Avengers Reboot! With the release of Avengers: Infinity War, Marvel Comics decides to reboot the Avengers. Again. For like the 19th time. I maybe be exaggerating. The new comics starts off with a flashback to the elder Avengers featuring Odin and characters I don't care enough to look up in a comic concept I hate with a fiery passion (hey, you know the hero/team/villain you really like, well, let's strip away everything unique about them 'cause somebody else did it first).

From there we jump to modern times with Captain America, Thor, and Iron Man all sitting around a bar thinking how great it would be to get the old band together. And then Celestials start falling from the sky. Wow, good thing they didn't wait until next week to get drunk and nostalgic. We also get appearances by Black Panther and Doctor Strange, She-Hulk, Carol Danvers, and... Ghost Rider? WTF is Ghost Rider doing in an Avengers comic?

Anyway, bad shit is coming. Time to assemble, or something. Just do it without me. I'm out. Excelsior this ain't. Pass.
