Review by

This is an unusual release. It came out after the Marvel Now launch, but is not exactly a part of any series. The Avengers as depicted hue more closely to their film counter-parts, but with more members not in the films (Wolverine, Captain Marvel) that tie it to the current ongoing series. This is truly a stand-alone story.The heroes are like their film versions in that they have reached the point of respecting one another, but are not really friends yet. The story opens with the team learning about a new drone in war-torn Slorenia that is of unknown origin. It turns out to be a technology/magic hybrid that ties into both Thor’s and Cap’s pasts. The story was quick, and not particularly deep, but well worth reading for the characterization. I especially liked Hawkeye and Banner here. I enjoyed this enough that I really wish they had used this to launch the Avengers' series, rather than the “white event” Marvel Now storyline. However, this book is also short and the retail price of the hardcover is too high for what you get. But it is worth getting at a big discount, or possibly as a paperback release. The Clark Gregg intro is a nice bonus for readers. Recommended.
