All-New All-Different Avengers #5

   I've been making fun of the rambling title of this series, but I have to admit that the All-New All-Different Avengers is actually living up to its name.

   It's not taking the direction we might have expected. Just five issues in and we see one team member betraying the others - and two members are kicked off the team (the cover gives away the first).

   It also solves the continuing mystery from the last storyline - namely, the true identity of the mysterious man who has bought out the Avengers Tower.

   So things are moving fast here, and we have no idea what the next move will be. It's that sense of the unknown, the string of surprises and the interesting mix of characters that makes this series so much fun to read.

   Add in some terrific art by Mahmud Asrar and you have a strong series - it's the best of the (new and numerous) Avengers titles!

Grade: A
