  I can't believe that the same guy who had been writing Wasp as a man-hungry twit for all those years wrote this story.

  Man i can't stand Hawkeye at this point....... loved the return of the Wasp and the story connection/carry-over from Tales to Astonish...... I love when things start to feel more connected........

  Hawkeye is singlehandedly holding this book together. As much as I love Cap, Wanda, and Pietro this lineup is pretty dull...

  Janet's showing some personality fire again, but "forgot her costume" and so "had to just wear a bathing suit instead." Well, that's one way to stretch the Comics Code, lads!
The Avengers face two mighty threats that still plague the modern world: lost passwords and humidity! Just imagine how bad Hawkeye's predicament would be if Cap had insisted on a password with eight characters and at least one number and capital letter? Cap would totally do that. At least they don't have to worry about those old-fashioned secret cartridges anymo--secret cartridges!?! Guys. You were taping notes to the outside of big plastic cartridges. Whose idea was that? No, don't blame the Hulk, he wasn't around enough. Cap, it was you, wasn't it? It's ok -- you're from the 40s and didn't know what a cartridge was. Heck, the rest of us aren't sure either.

  Release them, give them oxygen helmets and I'll fight them alone. Heh. Villains are stupid.

  Hawkeye is the most annoying hero in the Avengers right now, possibly in the entire Marvel universe at this point.

  Heck's got some good art in this.
The Marvel artists are getting better and better.
I so hope that Cap finally kicks the crap out of Hawkeye.
This was ok, I kind of liked seeing how strong Attuma really is.

  When oh when will Hawkeye become a team player (or get kicked out of the team)...?

  I'm beginning to despise Hawkeye. 3 stars... I hope he redeems himself as this ish suggests and that he stops acting like an adolescent youth.

  I was going to give this 2 stars, but little miss Waspie pushed it up to a 3!

Secret Decoder - Man, I thought my old answering machine from the 80's was big! They should self destruct their messages like in Mission Impossible!! Also, it looks like Cap has hood hair!!!

Cameo - Namor appears only on one panel...

At The Copa - Hawkeye may be an ass, but he has great taste in women! Also, his decoder ring was round instead of square last time we saw it!!

Fickle - First, Attuma's men want him to take the time to refight the Avengers. Because they felt it was too easy for him the first time. Then after the Avengers flood the chamber his men complain that they have better things to do then watching the fight!!!

'Nuff Said - "We didn't become Avengers by being timid!"-Cap

  Fun issue but a few questions...what the heck happened to Namor? And why subject yourself to a subconscious coma inducer? Weirdness.

  I'm digging Don Heck's art inked over by Frank Giacoia. I also like how Heck started drawing Cap with his good down when he's hanging around Avengers Mansion. It makes Hawkeye look that much more of a jerk that he keeps his hood on!

I like the continuity with Tales to Astonish, but it looks like that only extended as far as the Wasp can fly... Namor is shown in one panel, Krang is nowhere to be found, and out of nowhere Attuma shows up!

  Groovy, I think it's against the Comics Code for Cap to have his goods down like that! :)

  HOOD! I meant hood!

That'll teach me to type my comments on an iPhone LOL!

  I hate when comics take the drama out of a situation by just having the villain do something ridiculously stupid, like giving them air to fight again. You're a villain. Who cares if you fight fair. You're planning to destroy the world. I doubt anybody will be worried about you cheating. 2 stars.

  Dang, Attuma would've straight up won if he hadn't kidnapped a random floating woman he saw and told her his whole plan.

  Ugh, Hawkeye is insufferable in these early issues. I can only hope his blunder will finally teach him some humility.

  The exact moment I saw Hawkeye doing his gymnastic exercise during Cap's Tutorial...I knew that he would either have forgotten the PIN-Code or would not know what to do at all with the machine...

  Hawkeye is beginning to grate... the inter-Avengers dialogue just shows huge egos. Stark contrast to inter-FF dialogue which I used to find annoying but now realise was a lot better than this.
And those helmets... hated that too.
Luckily Wasp was in this issue, out-shining Scarlet Witch in looks and usefulness.

  Hawkeye makes a great team player here. Let's all give him a high five!

In the face.

With a chair.

Or three.

  • That's my line "Wha..??! You changed... instantaneously!" "'Natch! I've been secretly practicing for months!" (Hank and Janet) Obviously, she has also been practicing instantaneous change of clothes because her bathing suit was not visible under that cleavage a moment before! And good thing it was made of the same material as her super-hero costume!

  • So many good arcs and stories have spoiled us since the last Avengers issue in the Order, I almost forgot how ridiculous the dialog still is in this series with the constant domestic fights! Time for a sad an abrupt reality check! Ughh!

  • Attuma's underwater base has a device to trap floating humans and a pincer to catch low-altitude aircrafts, you know, just in case! One is never too careful!

  • How did Cap know about Attuma's flood-tide machine? Wasp never mentioned it!

  • Last panel page 16, Attuma is performing the Atlantean haka dance!

  • Despite the aforementioned flaws, I enjoyed this story and its connection to TTA. And the art was very good, even though Colan and Everett's work in Namor series took the bar so high that Heck's pencils look like primitive drawings now. 4 stars.
