Avengers #1

The new volume of Avengers launches with the team fighting Terminus intercut with events of the past few days in which Carol Danvers has assembled her new team. Avengers #1 is a fun issue, providing some action with the current battle (with admittedly a mostly throwaway baddie) while providing more character beats and humor in the flashbacks. With the assembly of the team being my favorite aspect of the issue, my only real concern is what the comic looks like without that interwoven story as the team moves onto various threats.

Our Avengers lineup includes Sam Wilson, Thor, Tony Stark, Black Panther, the Vision, and the Scarlet Witch. with Carol providing some insight, both through narration and dialogue, about her reasons for wanting each for the team (and choosing them over other contenders). It's an interesting team. Now assembled, let's see just how this new team functions.
