The Avengers #1 The Coming Of The Avengers Review

I am two minds about whether to love this or hate this. Practically every line is exposition and hammy if its possible for anything written down to be hammy. The Hulk is actually intelligent and not just a living bomb Bruce Banner slips into when his life is in danger, indeed Bruce never turns up at all which is a bit weird since the Hulk joins the aveng
ers without the other guy getting a look in. The way the Avengers form is rather delightfully farcical. Loki just wants to use the Hulk to lure Thor into fighting him but can only do that by stopping the hulk's friends from contacting the Fantastic Four and so Iron Man, Ant Man and the Wasp hear as well, by which time the Fantastic Four get the message anyway and go 'Kid, we're busy but turns out you don't need us because four other super heroes have decided to team up and help you'. This is so completely ridiculous. Dated: 15th of October
