Mighty Avengers #4
Writer: Al Ewing
Pencils: Greg Land
The Infinity Crossover has ended, and this titles is really starting to shape on his own. With an all new base, Luke Cage begins to build his new Avengers squad, excuse me his Mighty Avengers Squad. After an argument with Superior Spider-Man, the roster begins to open up. Falcon immediately puts in his application, though everyone thought he was talking about Cap, and reminds everyone his name is not “And the Falcon”. Photon, I mean Captain Marvel, I mean Spectrum, is solidified on the team, Blue Marvel may or may not returned. Lil Powerman and White Tiger are fo sho, and the mysterious Spider-Hero finally takes off that nasty costume and gets Clint Barton’s ol Ronin costume!
The Good: The Mighty Avengers finally feel like its about to take off, still mystery around the new Ronin, I think I know who it is, do you? Luke Cage really nails home he wants this to be its own Avengers team not some Dark Avengers that he operates under the watch of the main squad. The banter between each member as they seem to agree to join was just funny, I am a huge fan of Falcon and I’m always down to see him being used more, especially when Cap isn’t involved, no offense to Cap, because I love him.
The Bad: Pretty much nothing happens in this entire issue, other than your basic role call kinda issue, more of a issue 1 feel, which is nice since Issue one felt like a issue 4. I still can’t get into Greg Land’s art, people feel posed in every panel. The whole blurry background like its a movie thing just ain’t for me.
The Verdict: I have really been enjoying this tittle, a good writer can make me look past a bad artist, and well Greg Land really isn’t a bad artist, he just isn’t for me. Al Ewing has a cast I’ve always wanted to work with, and he’s doing them well, this title is a fun read, and this issue just adds to it. It wasn’t the action packed issue the previous had been but it was fun. It was a wait for the trade kinda issue, but you know I just had to pick it up.
