The Avengers #6

I'm really enjoying this series, even if the past few issues have had precious little of the usual Avengers on display.

But writer Jonathan Hickman and artist Adam Kubert have been doing something that's all too rare in comics these days: creating new and interesting characters.

This time around, the focus is on a character that's always been a bit of a mystery - Captain Universe.

In the past, the character has been more of a force of nature that seems to "possess" individuals in time of need. But this time around the individual holds a dark secret - and the power seems to be much more than we thought it was.

Add to that the inquiries by Shang Chi, the uncovering of the mystery man who holds a link to a major threat to the Earth, and a disturbing encounter between the team's youngest members and someone pretending to be Spider-Man, and you have another impressive issue.

The creative team has been weaving it all into something very special.

If you haven't been following this series, you're going to regret it.

Grade: A
