Synopsis: The issue opens up with a aerial shot of NYC and Stark Tower, a couple of shots on the same splash page pan down on a crowd of people slowly going into a close shot of out suspect hacking into Capekiller armor and shutting them down. The next scene is the same mystery guy hacking into Stark Tower and moving on up into the main penthouse where Jarvis is going about his usual duty.
Jarvis spots him and puts on the alarm but not before getting shot in the arm. Mystery guy apologizes to Jarvis to only be greeted by an intimidating shot of Iron Man ready to take him down but unexpectedly he initiates a code that shuts down Iron Man's armor, leaving Tony Stark trapped within his own armor.
Meanwhile above on the SHIELD helicarrier, an agent notices suspect activity out in front of Stark Tower. As they pan closely in they see a capekiller squad down and quickly rush to their aid. Back to Iron Man, "Kenny" starts to rant at Iron Man while he's down about how Tony used his technology towards the Civil War and how it wasn't meant to be used for that. Agent Hill and her crew try to contact Iron Man but to no avail, back to Kenny he goes on some spiel about how Iron Man does what he wants because he's in a suit of armor and doesn't hold himself responsible. It goes on until he reveals an anti-matter generator that will take him, Iron Man, Jarvis and Stark Tower out of NYC.
Hill plans to storm in and check out the tower but is suited with various cool gadgets that get her in. Kenny activates the bomb while Maria makes her way into the building, the top floor lights up with activity which promts Maria to turn on the anti-grav boots. Tony says to Kenny that if he goes through with it that he';; just go out as a martyr with nobody knowing why or how he died, Kenny mentions how he put his plan out into an internet blog where it'll be read and people will know that it was him that took out the tower and why.
Kenny then accuses Tony of stealing his work to which Stark replies that it was his since he worked for him so it falls under contract. Before Kenny finishes his speech he's shot in the back by Hill, Tony tells her to get out but she throws a bomb diffuser onto the anti-matter bomb and throws herself on Tony as it goes off effectively saving both their lives.
SHIELD, Sentry and Ms. Marvel (even though late) finally come through after all is said and done with questions. A little laterTony then has a talk with Hill that eventually reveals that she wants to relinquish her status as SHIELD director over to Tony.
Review: This was a very interesting take on Civil War as far as the technologies go and how this nobody just up and got into Stark Tower and took down Iron Man so easily. I'm a bit bothered as to how easily Iron Man's armor has been shut down or hacked into (Execute Program, Civil War #3, New Avengers #23) but it works in this story nontheless.
The parts with Hill were very cool, it seemed similar to Millar's Nick Fury raid in Ultimate X-Men. I also enjoyed the whole claustrophobic feel Cheung captured by showing the inside of Iron Man's visor all shut down and powerless.
The ending had a whopper of a clue as to where Tony might go post Civil War and it's something that was speculated at once a few images got out and seeing his general leader'like behavior during CW. Jimmy Cheung's art is just great and at the same time works very well with Bendis's script. It's not a traditional Avengers story by any means seeing as how it's a spotlight of each New Avenger and his or her perspective during the CW but at the same time a unique way of telling it through a human terrorist perspective.
It's not my favorite out of all the NA spotlight issues but it runs at a 3rd or 4th following the Cage, Spider-Woman, and Sentry issues.
