I write comic book reviews that NOBODY has ever asked for!
I'm not a big fan of The Avengers for the same reason I'm not a big fan of The Justice League. I like individual characters on both teams, but it just seems like a failing proposition to keep coming up with stories that can present a challenge to a combined team of the mightiest heroes on Earth. It all just sort of reeks of fan service, and I prefer lower-key super heroics.
BUT. . .
I seem to be in the minority when it comes to comics starring laughably overpowered super-teams, and that's okay. . .I just pass 'em by and read what I like. But I occassionally make an exception. Case in point being the 4 issue Avengers: Millennium series at hand. My local comic shop had all four issues bundled for 5 lousy bucks with that SWEET cover for issue #1 on top. I may not buy Avengers on the regular, but 4 issues for 5 bucks with at least one cover to make my office wall comic art rotation was a deal I couldn't refuse.- read more
