    Landy’s focus on three anonymous AIM agents feels intriguing. They may not be granted a whole lot of time on the page, but they make a fun deviation from the usual in a superhero comic. Given the right momentum, it would be interesting to see three or four anonymous identical AIM agents in their own series. It would be fun to see Landy and company play around with faceless gold scientists a little more closely.

    The March solicitations told us that Beyonder is behind all these situations designed to prepare the Avengers for the upcoming threat who is revealed at the end of this issue. But now the latest Timeless 1-shot has revealed *another* looming mega-threat for the Avengers called Myrddin. Or are they the same being?

    You know how you make a (very) old Avengers fan happy? You put Hawkeye back in his 1970’s (Avengers 1st series #98) native american costume as it used to be called! That headband! It definitely came as quite the surprise and now I understand why the gang wanted me to review this. Yet another Avengers team in another Avengers series doesn’t thrill me at all. But you bring back the somewhat egomaniacal man shooting arrows in this iconic costume choice and I’ll venture a peek inside. So blah, blah, blah, the heroes return to Earth, they encounter a new villain, and poor Dave the AIM guy bites it just when everyone was starting to like him. No biggie but entertaining enough. Hey, Marvel! At least let Hawkeye keep the headband in the future.

    This week's "teachable moment" features Black Widow, Spider-Woman, Captain Marvel, and Hawkeye stranded on an alien planet with some knuckleheads from A.I.M. While the absence of context or stakes more significant than a video game mission persists, there is a much-needed dose of charm contributed by the character lineup. Rather than having characters shout objectives and theories at one another across the issue, there's evidence of flirting and some genuinely funny gags related to the men. Hawkeye's role as the "himbo" of this quartet is undermined by Greg Land's depiction of the superheroines who share a face and body type, to the extent that it's disturbing to see their forms side-by-side at the end of the issue. This specific imagining of the female form possessing excessively thin limbs paired with consistent inflections to arouse fails to titillate and serves the entire project poorly. With a one-dimensional array of emotional responses, a singular sorrowful panel cannot even be asked to show a character's face. Land's lifeless and sexually-frustrated work ensures that the best issue of All-Out Avengers to date remains difficult to recommend.
