In 2004, Bendis took an Avengers book that was stale and more than a decade from good story-telling. His first story arc was Avengers: Disassembled. The Scarlet Witch went crazy and killed several members. The eventually subdued the Scarlet Witch, Magneto shows up and takes her away and the the team decides to disband.
A few months later there is a break-out at Rikers Island and dozens of villains escape. Spiderman, Captain America, Wolverine, Daredevil, Jessica Drew and Luke Cage all show up to put things in order. Steve Rogers decides that it was fate and he convinces Tony Stark to reboot the Avengers. Daredevil declines, but everyone else is in. They also happen upon a mysterious man known as The Sentry.
600+ kids die in a tragedy caused by young, untrained heroes in Stamford, CT. The US Government responds by passing the Superhuman Registration Act. Tony Start is for it. Steve Rogers is against it. The heroes split and fight in a Civil War. After its conclusion, Rogers is killed. Luke Cage becomes the leader of the New Avengers, as they try to do good works while avoiding Tony Stark's Mighty Avengers.
Tony Stark puts together his team of "legal" Avengers. His goal is to have a powerhouse team. His tactical leader is Carol Danvers.Read more ›
I has apprehensive when I began reading Mighty Avengers because it wasn't the team I have been enjoying and it had few characters that I've even read about. I'll be honest though, after a bumpy start, the book came together and was pretty fun. I can tell it's just the start of something big and I almost purchased the collection that includes Vol. 2 but I wanted to test the waters first (and it was cheaper to buy them individually.)
All in all, it was worth it. The team is a little bland but that's to be expected with the roster and the fact that they are basically the super-police. A little more time into the series and I'm sure the characters will bloom more. The thing between Iron Man & Black Widow is already interesting and the other team interactions seem like they'll add that much more to later volumes.
I recommend it and that if you haven't already, pick up the New Avengers books up to Vol. 7 and read them first. The Initiative is another great reading series that loosely ties in but isn't necessary but awesome as well.
I found the story engaging and well thought out and the artwork top notch. It also didn't hurt that Ultron took the form of an incredibly hot, seemingly naked, woman.
I read this on my 7"kindle fire HD and had no problem reading the text and the art stood out in panel view. I highly recommend this book.
