The major difference is that this contains Avengers #62 which was originally found in the TBP collection of Avengers: World Trust. It had wonderful art by Gary Frank but just feels like it belongs with Avengers #61.
Then you jump into the three part story that ran through Thor and Iron Man (Avengers #63, Thor #58, Iron Man #64). This where you have the mighty three (Captain America being the third) bickering (again) and being goaded by Doctor Doom. The problem is that you have two extra writers, (Mike Grell, and Dan Jurgens) doing their thing on their separate titles and it just doesn't mesh with Geoff Johns. On the plus side you have the whole story illustrated by Alan Davis which is a huge plus in that it has consistency and it's done by a great artist.
And then you have Avengers #64 which felt like a prologue to Red Zone with beautiful art by Ivan Reis and focuses on the Falcon and Henry Gyrich.
The collection is fine, nothing special, kind of a lull between two major stories, and feels like Marvel just getting that extra little bit of money from us. Like I said, I wish it was done in 3 collections instead of 4. The front cover is not the best (it's actually the cover to Iron Man #64), same with the back cover (which was actually Thor #58). Nice of Marvel to title it an Avengers book with the covers being from titles that aren't Avengers. Truth be told, the only reason I have it is to be a completist... Though I do enjoy Avengers #62, and #64.
