Just read New Avengers #2... Imo, it was an excellent read. I would have really like it, if issue #1 an #2 was combined,
but aside from that small detail if the quality writing and artwork continues, I'm be getting this for the long run...
Personally, I think the first issue should have been double sized, with the first and second issue combined. But ultimately in the end I think we're going to get a good story either way.
I did kind of think it was a little weird that in the very first issue of a team book, the rest of the team played such a small role. Combined with the second issue, it actually balances out quite well since T'Challa didn't have a whole lot to say in the Illuminati meeting. Though what he did say had impact.
Yeah, but I'll take Hickman word when he says it's not Defenders. Fearless is the NOW Defenders. Got a point, the only thing is that Illiumati is a concept different then Defenders I think.
Yeah Defenders would make much more sense. Dr. Strange on call to gather the ex-Illuminati. I would much prefer say I am buying a title name than an imprint name.
Some of the members hate each other? Check.
Powerful heroes who don't play well with others? Check?
Get together when one person calls them, to handle truly massive and scary threats that should remain hidden from the world at large? Check.
Namor and Strange are two of the founding members? Check.
The only thing missing is everyone breaking up once the threat is over, saying 'Never call on us again,' and that's only because they haven't solved the major threat yet.
