BONUS REVIEW by "Doc" Schaefer

According to Marvel, I have now lived through 8 (yep, count em) 8 Avengers #1s. And the sad part is that aside from the original with ole Bucket Head Iron Man and teenage Thor, the only other Avengers #1 that made an impression was the Heroes Return #1 back in '98. This time around the old order changeth once again and we're given a more movie friendly group. Joining the "Big 3" are such new comers as Doctor Strange and Captain Marvel. Starting with a flashback to prehistoric Avengers, the ultimate battle centers around the Celestials. Again, pushing the limits of credibility to the max as to just how powerful does a villain have to be to defeat the Avengers. The drinking "Let's put the band back together." scene lacks the warmth and real humor that it deserves and along the way, we pick up Ghost Rider in his CAR?!! and She-Hulk looking like someone slapped Jen's head and lady bits on the male Hulk's body. Sigh! But have no fear Marvel Zombies because Black Panther is here. Another Sigh. Where's my Infinity Gaunlet? I need to snap my fingers.

I give it 6 out of 10 Grahams
