The other side of Jonathan Hickman’s Avengers story featuring the Illuminati as the New Avengers. Hickman is telling such a big story with the Avengers that he had to split it up into two different books (much like Fantastic Four/ FF) and although the threats are different for each team, they are similar in size and scope.
Fans of the Black Panther will really enjoy this book, as it puts him front and centre. Hickman puts great emphasis on the character and makes him feel as important as Captain America and Iron Man.
Not a whole lot of action in terms of fighting in this issue, and the villains of the story feel a little bland.
I’m interested to see where Hickman takes the New Avengers, being a fan of Black Bolt I am interested to see how he handles the characters. Very new reader friendly, New Avengers is off to a good start.
