Set in a storyline where Captain America has vanished, this issue has only one appearance of Cap in it. (Outside of some flashbacks..) The rest of the story is centered upon the Avengers, as they try to deal with some terrorists that want to execute Captain America on television. Add in some cynical government types and some dreamy eyed law enforcement, and you have a rather stock story that ends up looking nice.

The artwork is fantastic, especially the serious action scenes. (I love Quicksilver running across the walls and ceiling of a national monument.) Where the art seems weak, there is a reason, it seems. And the fact that it is simply a stepping stone in the greater story itself is allowable, although I normally shun such things.

The storyline is where I have reservations. Captain America has vanished, terrorists demand his appearance or they will kill several dignitaries, and the Avengers show up, but are reluctant to talk about Cap. I really have an issue with the world's mightiest hero team, especially with members such as Deathcry and Hercules on this roster, acting so cowardly when it comes to one of the team's cornerstone characters. They don't simply say "Cap's unavailable", they virtually lie about him. Why aren't they at least making an effort to find him??? It takes a policeman's good intentioned mistake to goad them into real action, when we know that even with all the tech these characters have, any one member of the team should be able to wipe them out with less effort than it takes them to warm up the Quinjet.

But, the art is wonderful, and if you are a fan of the old Black Widow/Hercules/Hank Pym/Quicksilver/Crystal/Deathcry team, then this issue has them all in spades. There is a nice little moral at the end, and you come away from it all feeling better about the story as a whole. (But you should read it all the way through.)
