All-New, All-Different Avengers #3

   I like this comic. A lot.

   It's a new team of Avengers, split almost evenly between veteran heroes and newbies.

   So we have Iron Man, Captain (Falcon) America and the Vision as the veterans, the new (she) Thor, (Ultimate) Spider-Man, Nova and Ms. Marvel as the new kids on the block (sorry).

   It makes for a fun dynamic, especially when the new heroes provide decisive moments in the battle - and the enthusiasm to create a new team of Avengers.

   The story by Mark Waid is a lot of fun, with some interesting subplots sprouting up, a mysterious and powerful new enemy, and entertaining character interaction - which is what makes team books so much fun, after all.

   The art by Adam Kubert is terrific, with powerful character designs, striking layouts and a stunning two-page spread.

   The other post-Secret Wars Avengers comics (Uncanny, New) haven't impressed me much. This is the best of the bunch by far.

Grade: A-
