Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy! The best book on the stands is back for it's final issue (until the relaunch) - an oh boy, oh, boy is it great!
The New and Young Avengers are fighting the Kree and Skrull together and the issue is full of hilarious dialogue:
Spider-Man is attacked by Skrulls and Stature is lifting him up:
Spidey: Guys! A little help? I'm being skrulled alive over here.
Stature: Don't worry, Spider-Man... I've got your back.
Spidey: Literally. Not to be ungrateful, Cass, but-- can the roof accomodate your mass at that size?
Stature: Oops. Didn't think of that.
Spidey: It's okay. We can't all be hyper-neurotic, recovering science geeks.
Stature: YOU were a geek?
Spidey: That was a joke, right?
Tommy is watching Logan, while he's slashing some Skrull and wonders because "Avengers don't kill", right?
Logan says that they'll recover... eventually and THEN Tommy goes Splat-Fu! with them Skrull to which logan says:
"You're sick, kid. I like it."
:D :D :D
Then Teddy surrenders and is supposed to stay one half year with the Kree and the other one with the Skrulls. Then he leaves.
But the thing is - it wasn't the real Teddy but the Super Skrull who's now masquerading as Teddy so that Hulkling can stay on Earth (can't beat that nose of Logan, can you?).
And regarding Patriot? Well he's dead.
Naaaa... just kidding. He's saved via blood transfusion with Isaiah's blood and so he's got himself some superpowers.
Oh and Jessica convince Kate to accept the codename and equipment Cap chose for her - Hawkeye.
And you guessed it - Tommy stays on the team, becoming "Speed" (and looking like a green Impulse/Kind Flash).
It's just so
awesome it's beyond words. I'll can't wait for the new series and I think I'll read the completely series again (and please Marvel: Make one nifty oversized hardcover of this, PLEASE!!!)
