Uncanny Avengers #4

I've reviewed each issue in the Uncanny Avengers series so far - issue #1, #2 and #3, and my apologies, gentle readers, because each review has boiled down to the same thing.

Great art and feeble story despite a great cast and a top-tier villain.

And this issue continues the trend. There is one positive event here, as Havok and the Scarlet Witch finally get a chance to shine - but the rest of the story is the usual grim slog, with heroes and citizens under telepathic control, murderous events, heroes fighting each other, lots of yelling and smashing, and no real ending to speak of.

On the whole, it seems to be a team of heroes where no one likes each other - which makes it hard for the reader to get involved.

A little friction between characters is fine, but outright dislike is a bit tougher to get over.

So far, this series has been very disappointing. Except for John Cassaday's art.

Grade: C+

The "ending" of this issue was simply awful....
