Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
11/04/2013
Ellis's surprisingly lightweight return to superhero work matches elements of the Avengers comics to the Avengers movie and comes up with an entertaining but plot-thin story aimed primarily at new readers. Taking the team from the movie and adding in Captain Marvel, the story pits the characters against two long-dormant threats, which mix Captain America's past with Thor's. Succeeding mainly due to Ellis's acerbic dialogue and characterizations, the plot features a tried-and-true method: a monster is sighted, the Avengers go fight it, Hulk appears, they fight and beat the monster. McKone's art never feels like a strong fit for Ellis's dyspeptic take on the Avengers brand, however; the former has a clean-cut and innocuous style that, at times, looks flat on the page and doesn't have a wow factor. The characters are all given something to do (and, for the most part, something to say)—Captain America's depressed mood throughout being notable—but this is a generally tension-free story with by-the-numbers fight sequences and predictable characters; new readers flocking from the movies may find it passes the time despite the lack of true bite.

Meet the Author

Springing from the fertile ground of the U.K. comics scene, Warren Ellis came to Marvel during the early '90s and proved his iconoclastic mettle in the ultra-edgy series Hellstorm and the miniseries Druid - followed by fondly remembered, extended runs on Excalibur and Doom 2099. After making a name for himself as a premier talent with Wildstorm's Stormwatch, Transmetropolitan, The Authority and Planetary, Ellis returned to Marvel to pen such titles as Ultimate Fantastic Four, the Ultimate Galactus Trilogy and Iron Man. His Nextwave: Agents of H.A.T.E. was both a critical smash and cult favorite. In addition to reviving the 1980s New Universe in newuniversal and writing Thunderbolts, Ellis took over Astonishing X-Men following Joss Whedon and John Cassaday's departure, and penned perhaps the definitive story of the Armored Avenger in Iron Man's "Extremis."

Artist Mike McKone was pegged as a future industry superstar when his first work was published in DC's JLA and Legion. In 2001, McKone collaborated with writer Judd Winick to launch Marvel's Exiles, a surprise hit among X-fans. Two years later, he teamed with writer Geoff Johns to revamp Teen Titans for DC. Since signing an exclusive contract with Marvel, McKone's credits include Fantastic Four, Amazing Spider-Man and Avengers Academy.
