The art is very good, if not great, and the story flows very well.
Ben Martin
The first time I read this series I was shocked right from the get-go, and only got more drawn-in as I continued to read.
Overall, I would recommend this to any Bendis fan, any Avengers fan, and anyone who enjoys comics overall.

Before I get into the nitty-gritty, let me just say that I love Bendis. He's a god among men. Powers, Jinx, Daredevil, Alias, Goldfish... these are some of the best comic books that money can buy. He writes great noir and fantastic dark stories.

But the New Avengers, having risen from the ashes of Avengers Disassembled, has left me with a few issues that could be problems later on:

Lineup. This team is a little too much contrived for my own tastes.
1. Luke Cage, having a big resurgence in recent years (thanks to Bendis and the Maxx comics) as a bad-a$$ African-American superhero. I like Luke Cage. He's cool to the core. He's the Samuel L. Jackson of the Original Marvel Universe. Yet, what are his powers? His skin's unbreakable and he can punch. He's the strong-arm.
2. Spider-Man. Another power-house. Sure he can swing around on his webs too but only if he has something to adhere them to. Take the boy out of the city and he's in trouble. Also, Bendis under uses Web-head. He's a comic relief for the team. Spider-Man is better than that and Bendis knows that.
3. Captain America. I have no problems with Captain. He's a born leader, strategist, moral compass, and all-around great superhero. Only problem is that he's a strong-arm too. Sure he can throw his shield but only so far. Captain America is all about fisticuffs and throwing the shield around.
4. Iron-Man. Now we get into some power. The suit can do amazing things (but can it toast a piece of bread just right?) and having Iron-Man on the team adds mobility and power to the team. Also, Tony Stark has developed from his tortured, recovering alcoholic into this playboy, all-around fun guy in recent years.
5. Spider-Woman.

6 of 8 people found the following review helpful By N. Durham HALL OF FAMEVINE VOICE on January 8, 2006
Format: Paperback
To say that the new Avengers lineup raised a few eyebrows is saying it lightly. Plenty of fanboys call New Avengers Brian Michael Bendis' attempt to JLA-ize the team with the company's most popular characters (Spider-Man, Wolverine), but a few of the other choices he's put on the team is quite intriguing. By the end of this TPB, the New Avengers consists of returning members Captain America and Iron Man, along with Spidey, Wolverine, Spider-Woman, Luke Cage, and the Sentry; who may be the strangest choice here (you may remember the Marvel Knights mini-series a few years back starring the character by Paul Jenkins and Jae Lee) as Bendis gives the team a Marvel version of Superman. As this TPB opens, Electro is hired by an unseen employer to break into the most powerful prison in the city. As this happens, Matt "Daredevil" Murdock, his partner Foggy, and bodyguard Luke Cage are brought in to find out why the Sentry, the most powerful superhuman on the planet, allowed himself to be imprisoned. Soon enough, the power goes out, and all the super criminals break free. Spidey, Captain America, and Iron Man soon join the fight, which thanks to the awesome art of David Finch, is one of the most action packed and well orchestrated brawls in mainstream comics today. After that, a new team is born, and a mystery begins to develop. Bendis' storytelling is ok, while Finch's art definitely sells the book. His action scenes are incredibly detailed, and his rendition of Spider-Woman is incredibly luscious. The new team lineup however is what hurts the book, because we don't need Wolverine on any more teams, and having Spider-Man on the team just comes off as cheap (I'm surprised he didn't include Daredevil as well, which is probably on the way). Despite that, this first New Avengers arc is surprisingly solid, and is definitely worth checking out.

The Worst Day in Avengers History

I remember when a friend of mine showed me Avengers:Disassembled as it came out. At first I thought it was cool. Not that I knew anything about the Avengers, but I appreciate a good story and good artwork as much as anybody (I'm still somewhat new to the mainstream superhero universes of DC and Marvel). Of course that story was in the end quite a mixed bag as I was thrilled with the melodrama (Iron Man drunk and making a scene at the U.N., She-Hulk ripping the Vision in half, and Hawkeye dying in quite possibly the most glorious manner I've ever seen a superhero die), and disappointed with the ultimate explanation (Scarlet Witch is coming unhinged and killing her own teammates?). Regardless of how people felt about the disbanding, dissolution, and dissolving of the old Avengers, it of course gave rise to... THE NEW AVENGERS!

It Was a Dark and Stormy Night...

Whether the setting at the start of the New Avengers is silly or classic probably depends on your point of view, but personally I think it's about as good as it gets in the world of comic books. On a night filled with foreboding, all heck is about to break loose as one of old Spidey's classic villains Electro overloads the security system on S.H.I.E.L.D.'s maximum security prison for super-villains. Spider-man hitches a ride of a helicopter to see what's going on, and quickly finds himself with Captain America, Luke Cage, sort-of S.H.I.E.L.D. agent/superhero Jessica Drew (Spider-Woman), Matt Murdock (Dare Devil), and a man that Matt Murdock claims is the most powerful superhero on earth... the Sentry.
