This may be the part of the review where you read something disappointing about this product. I'll let you know, I found nothing wrong with Siege, and I'm suprised. I had problems here and there with all the events, but Siege is flawless in my opinion.
*Elegantly Epic Artwork
*Ex-Avengers Coming Together
*Every Character's Dialogue Specially Treated (Thanks Bendis!)
*An Amazing Thor Story Within An Event
*A Bombardment Of Twists
*Bendis Wasn't Afraid To Do Devastating Things(You May Shed A Tear By The End)
I rest my case. What more could you really ask for? Siege takes the good things from Civil War and Secret Invasion, and creates a better story without the problems we saw before. It feels right to say that this is the event we've all been waiting for.
Time's come to draw the shades on Norman Osborn's reign as head assclown of the Marvel universe. But not before a truly fed-up Clint Barton makes his intention of assassinating Osborn known to his teammates. I want to say that I do appreciate Bendis's keeping it real with the characters. It makes sense that Spidey, Mr. "With Great Power blah blah..." himself, would be the most vocal in terms of shooting down what Barton aims to do. But Barton gives in to his dark impulses and he sneaks out that very night in his Ronin guise. However, he's sensible enough (barely) to wait until the big bad Sentry flies away before he goes a-skulking into Avengers Tower. Barton manages to acquit himself pretty well against various of the Dark Avengers - and what he does to Dark Wolverine makes me cringe - and he even makes it to his target before he gets dropped hard. What? You didn't think Ronin was gonna succeed, did you? This stuff is chronicled in THE LIST: NEW AVENGERS, a pretty good one-shot issue.
Another good 'un is NEW AVENGERS ANNUAL #3 and, partly, it's because of artist Mike Mayhew. With the menfolk New Avengers away on their own solo adventures (because these dudes do have their own comic books, and Luke Cage is still in recovery), it's up to the chicas to storm Osborn's helicarrier and rescue Clint Barton. Besides Mike Mayhew's awesome art, there are two more things to particularly relish: that this story seems to herald Jessica Jones' return to superheroing and that there's a sequence here in which Osborn gets tricked silly.
Then we come to the weakest bunch in this trade, issues #61-64 of the NEW AVENGERS series.Read more ›
I began with the Siege Prelude to try and orient myself to the state of this Marvel universe, and it was helpful. Siege opens with Osborn informing the Cabal that it is Loki's turn to be aided in taking over Asgard. Osborn wants to attack, but the president needs justification. Loki works with Osborn to create an inciting incident by setting up Volstagg to cause some major destruction, and Ares is tricked by Osborn into leading the assault with the Dark Avengers- and the Siege begins! Captain America gathers the Avengers, who have been in hiding from the superhero registration act, Nick Fury and Maria Hill resurface, and they all come to the defense of their friend, Thor. The Avengers fight better as a team, and they seem to make headway until the ultra-powerful Sentry brings Asgard crashing down and threatens all their lives. He can only be defeated by some very unlikely help.
Loki's machinations from start to finish as he unfolds his plan are fun and interesting.Read more ›
The first story in the collection is Dark Reign: The List, which recounts Ronin's (aka Hawkeye) attempted assassination of Osborn. While this is an entertaining story, with some great action, I already read it as part of Siege: Dark Avengers and I understand that it is also part of Dark Reign: The List (which I haven't gotten to yet). So, I don't feel it added any value to this book beyond increasing the price. Hence four stars instead of five.
The second part of the book follows the true Avengers as they become aware of Siege and take action. It opens with The Hood, the members of whom have been powered-up by Loki's Norn stones, hunting down the "renegade" Avengers who are in hiding. Mainly it's a series of fights, but it does have some fun interplay among the heroes, including Spider-man and Spider-Woman, as well as heralding the return of the real Captain America - Steve Rogers. The story also includes some personal interplay between the various romantic entanglements. Luke Cage gets spot-lighted, which I enjoyed since I'm not very familiar with the character. Here we see him in conversation with his wife about what their responsibilities are to their friends but also to their family. A similar situation happens with Ronin and Mockingbird.Read more ›
