I don't know if it's the loss of some of the characters like Wiccan and Hulkling, or the fact that Secret Empire is literally issues away from hitting and bulldozing over anything Ewing would want to set up, but we get a short, sharp arc (and a done-in-one which is perfectly executed) that doesn't really get to build any narrative momentum. The real stars are the characters themselves, as they continue on the paths that were set up for them in New Avengers and beyond.The artwork is by Paco Medina and Paco Diaz, who pair off well and have before. Their visuals are bright and in your face, just as you'd expect star spangled Avengers to be.A good premise, given no time to breathe by events. What else is new, Marvel?

    I continue to be impressed by Ewing's willingness to use lesser-known characters or create new ones and mix them up in interesting ways.

    A painfully timely new angle for All Ewing's ongoing Avengers saga, in which Roberto da Costa, having bought out science terrorists AIM and repurposed them for good, officially allies them with the US just in time for the US to go as wrong as AIM ever were.

Thus far it's worked better for me in the earlier issues, where the team fought a kleptocratic villain from the future (all the while clarifying that this organisation represents what America should be, rather than what it has let itself become), or the bonkers single issue which compressed a whole nonexistent crossover into itself. The Secret Empire tie-ins which conclude this collection, while still very much thematically apt, can't help but lose some of the momentum - though I trust this team to come through it all stronger than ever, and by that I mean both the characters and the‚Äč creators.
