    Default Uncanny Avengers #3 *Spoilers*

    After a month, it's finally here. Spoilers abound.

    - The issue starts off with the Red Skull telepathically controlling people. He incites anti-mutant feelings in ordinary citizens and he puts forth Rogue and the Scarlet Witch (who are brainwashed) as members of the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants. The telepathically controlled crowds begin to throw stones and other objects at them.

    - Red Skull uses his powers to allow the crowd identify x-gene positive folk and they go on rampage killing anybody with the mutation.

    - Captain America, Wolverine, Havok and Thor engage and attempt to dispel the crowd.

    - Thor attacks the Red Skull which temporarily disrupts the Skull's powers. Rogue and the Scarlet Witch come to their senses.

    - Mzee (the turtle guy) smashes into Thor (its said that Mzee has the psyche of a dead african god inside him and is the lord of physical will). He attempts to smash into Thor again (cos its said that he cant be stopped by any force of the earth) but Thor flings mjolnir right into his face (Thor isn't of earth). Honest John walks up to Thor and offers him a hand because he wants to explain somethings to him (he's using his powers of persuasion on him).

    - Captain America gets bogged down by the Skull's message of hate (he feels like killing mutants too) but his will can't be broken and he shrugs off the feeling. Havok saves a girl from the crowd but Captain America (who is still under the slight influence of the Skull) angrily confronts Havok who immediately asks Steve to snap out of it. Wolverine gets into a fight with the Insect. Wolverine holds back (it's stated that he hasn't taken a life since Xavier's death) and he gets injected with a toxin for his troubles. Wanda breaks a fire hydrant and knocks out the Insect.

    - Rogue tells Wolverine that the Red Skull dug up Xaviers body and fused their brains together. Wolverine goes into a rage and goes after the Skull. Thor in the meantime is being persuaded by Honest John's powers. He's seeing visions of his father (Odin) asking him to destroy mutants, Thor tries to argue but the Red Skull (who's recovered) uses his powers to control him.

    - Wolverine attacks Red Skull and slices his hand off but the S-men blast Logan back and strip him of his powers. Thor proceeds to knock out Wolverine.

    - The issue ends with Thor bowing down before the Red Skull pledging to serve the Eternal reich.

    This issue was action packed. Cassaday's art was a real beauty and the action wonderfully rendered.

    8.5/10 for me.

    He's resistant but not immune. It takes a lot.

    Marvel contradicted the heck out of themselves regarding Thor's TP.

    He was put to sleep and mindwiped by Charles Xavier in the Avengers tie-in but he literally through Emma Frost out of his mind in the VS book.

    That being said, he's not immune to TP but it takes a whole lot. In this issue it took Honest John and Red Skull combining to actually take him over.

    Why do they keep taking away Wolverine's powers? That's really cheap.

    This issue was completely bad ass. Everything looked amazing thanks to Cassaday. And while it's an all-action issue, Remender doesn't skimp on the characterizations. Loved it. As much as Cassaday's art is worth waiting for, I'll be very glad when Acuna comes on board and gets this great title shipping on a regular basis.

    Being mind-controlled to bow down before one doesn't count.

    Agreed.

    The delays has killed some of the momentum but this issue was pretty good.

    I can't wait to get Acuna and enjoy the goodness more frequently.

    The way I see it, Xavier is stronger than Emma, so he could break into Thor's mind with minimal issues.

    As for the issue, it was really good. I'm really enjoying this series. I'm really excited when the next issue comes out... Hopefully my kids can read it, lol.

    The art is really good, but its sad to see Wanda neutered to using Fire Hydrants as a weapon, lol.

    As for Wolverine, I was hoping Mjolnir would kill him and he would be replaced by someone good.

    Good. My only complaint is Thor be controlled. Only Moondragon managed this feat by that recall.
