Weighted Triple. How well did the issue further develop the current story arc? How well did the issue further develop the characters?
Verdict - 3.7
What I think: The cover for this issue really doesn't say much. It's just another pose shot of the Avengers that are appearing in the issue (well except Captain America should be replaced with Thor). I also don't care for most of the variant issues, mainly because they are Movie tie-in covers that have zero to do with the actual comic. I like the art style, even though it at times doesn't portray everyone exactly as we have seen them before, you still know who they are. The problem I have with this issue is similar to the rest of the series, its too corny for my taste. I told that the old Guardians comics have always been like this so I figured I'd hang in there to find out. So far it seems like nothing major is happening with this arc, its just Tony and Bruce trying to one-up each other because Bruce one a Futurist award over Tony. I'll hold out for the next issue, hopefully the writing gets better or something major occurs to keep me interested.
