New Avengers #23

    OK, I've been grumping about New Avengers lately, because it's been painting the heroes into a very bad corner - one that leaves them undistinguishable from the villains.

    It's a cosmic problem, as alternate Earths are infringing on our Earth, and the only choice for this team is to destroy the other team before it destroys theirs.

   Last issue, a member of the group had to make the call they've been dreading - to destroy an inhabited planet to preserve their own.

   This issue the heroes face the end of the world - each in their own way - and the story takes a surprising turn. It's a powerful payoff after a long buildup, and it's going to be very interesting to see where it all goes from here.

Grade: A-
