There are so many elements here that I love and sadly they combined into a total disaster. Rick Remender seems to only want to see what happens when good guys are bad and vice versa. The story in itself isn't close to self contained. It actually doesn't even start here. The actions of the protagonists make little sense, so many pieces are moved off the board in the laziest of fashions, and the ending is nonsense. The dialogue is so heavy handed at times that I can't believe it was Remender. The book has four fantastic pencilers on it and all of them deliver work below their normal standard. I can't imagine why except time constraints. Overall, this book is the final chapter in an overly long Uncanny Avengers story. Too much going on accomplishing nothing.
This story was great overall. An enjoyable read through and through.
Glad I read this
