_the_renegade_'s Avengers #4 - The Death and Resurrection of Major Titans review

Piece of the puzzle

The good:
Even if the first story arc is over, the consequences of the Garden's actions are still in effect. This fourth issue deals in part with one of the consequences as well as the why and the how Hyperion is part of the avengers. Concentrating on a small group of Avengers (essentially Hyperion), the team goes in the Savage Land to investigate one of the biologically infected sites on earth. What's good about this issue is how we get to know a lot more about Hyperion and like I just mentioned, why he's on the team. His story is tragic and well displayed in the issue. We understand by the end that he's going to be a part of the big story Hickman is planning here.  
 
The bad:
There wasn't anything impressive about this issue. It's a small part of a bigger picture, but without an original aspect added to it. On top of that, a lot of the characters weren't very exposed, again. I know the issue was concentrating on Hyperion, but if Hickman's Avengers is supposed to be filled with a huge cast, maybe these stand alone issues should give the spotlight to several characters, rather than show a bunch of them, but only concentrate on one.  
 
Secondly, Adam Kubert's art just doesn't do it for me. He's not a bad artist, but there's not a lot of details in his drawings. His close ups are not bad, but when it comes to a panel where we see several elements, the details just don't appear. 
 
So what's the verdict?
Even though this issue is meant to be a ''piece of the puzzle'' for what Hickman's planning, it still lacks of an original idea and good art. Even so, it placed a good element to the bigger story and that's why Hyperion got the spotlight. On the bad side of that aspect of the book, the other characters got less exposing in the issue. We'll just have to be patient yet again to see how everything connects.
