No one questions Steve Rogers' or Thor's heroism and bravery. And each of the Avengers reaffirms that. Then they go on to explain why each of the rest of them is also brave and true, despite a shady past or prior transgressions. And each of those examples is what made this book a must-read that was even better than the main event. The Red Hulk, Spiderwoman, Mockingbird...they all get a chance to shine while saving the day during Fear Itself. Steve Rogers takes Victoria Hand, Agent 13 and Maria Hill on a mission that turns out to be a trap - that they fight their way out of. All of these were great stories, with superb action sequences. However, the best was definitely saved for last.
The book concludes with Squirrel Girl - I know, a ridiculous character who somehow works great in this instance - fighting her way across the mayhem of New York to get to Avengers Mansion and watch the baby Cage while her parents fight the big fight. And when the mansion comes under attack, it is Daredevil who saves the day in a story that very nearly had me cheering out loud. The ending alone was worth five stars.
Overall, though I still hate the format, this book does a lot to expand on the overall Fear Itself event by telling some exciting stories of how the heroes fought the spreading chaos. Highly recommended.
