nefilim927's Ultimate Avengers #18 - Blade versus the Avengers, Part Six review

Best of the Worst


And here goes for the first review... 
 
Story: 
This whole vampire run has grown pretty tiresome.  It worked in Curse of the Mutants but it felt so forced here.  I would like if they worked in that Giant Man to be the new Goliath but knowing Millar he'd just kill him soon after.  I don't mind that they just had Cap's formula work it out in the end or the way he finally ended it, but it wasn't enough for a 6 issue run.  All that business with Blade, Stick, new Daredevil....useless.  The first run of the this team was pretty good with the Red Skull and Red Wasps origins.  Round 2 with the double Ghost Riders/Punisher Cap wasn't as good but still held some promise.  Despite this issue being the best of the run ,this volume is for sure a big step down for the series.
 
Art: 
The Greg Land cover isn't so bad...for Land but the interior art doesn't particularly win me over either.  I'm not a big fan of the look on Nerd Hulk and Cap.

It's one thing to write the character with more emphasis on ...
