Issue Review
 
RikerDonegal
   March 29, 2016
It starts off with Henry Pym doing something dumb that leads to yet another attack on the Avengers at their mansion. Seriously, this happens way, way, way too often. That inauspicious beginning aside, the story gets better as more Avengers appear and they head off to find/confront some interesting former foes. The final section comes down to a very good battle between Thor and Iron Man which has an abrupt, but satisfying, conclusion. 8/10

  -A little too sprawling, this probably would've played out better across two or three issues of the regular mag.

  Lol at Hank for telling the ants not to spoil the surprise.

  +1 star for correctly using Thor's hammer's mechanics.

  Hank must be crazy to gift anyone this little gem. He's got to be the most unstable Marvel creation since the invention of the unstable molecule uniform.

  - Jan is the epitome of a spoiled rich girl. Always gets what she wants. Why would anyone want to be with someone who thinks they are that entitled.
- For one of the smartest people in the Marvel universe, Hank can sure be pretty dumb.
- Doctor Spectrum, the entity within the gem, is quite a cunning and formidable villain. Even with the one flaw 99% of all villains seem to have (not killing the heroes when they have the chance).
- Ms. Marvel was simply badass. I hope to see more of that in her future.
- Who knew Vision was such a diplomat? Makes me like him that much more.

  Seriously that Vision talking Hyperion down scene was one of the best ones so far. It's good to see some hero who can do more than just beat the other guy up.

  Reed never makes anything as useful as the Early Warning Wife Detector.
