    The Story: The story is really cool and has a great tone that made me smile as it played out. I like that Aaron tells the story from a new character’s perspective and leaves the rest of the Avengers in the background and out of sight. The plot has a fun and entertaining energy that does a great job of setting up a new mission for the Avengers as well as the introducing some new potential allies in the fight to come. The Art: Garron delivers some beautifully detailed and vibrant art throughout the story. The action was brilliantly done and filled with great visual moments that draw you in.

    The Avengers #57 isn't an issue that provides a quick, clean representation of what an Avengers comic is. It does, however, perfectly present an issue emblematic of the current Avengers mega-story, which is weird and brilliant and every degree of "big deserving of Earth's Mightiest.

    If nothing else, the Secret Invaders are a fun concept, meaning that even if Avengers #57 doesn’t work for you, it’s packed full of new twists on the Marvel Universe and really good-looking art, even if I can’t quite work out the timeline that allows Blade to be active in 1943, earning 4 out of 5 stars overall. Given that we’ve seen a little bit of the lost history that the team is trying to protect/recreate, I’m looking forward to the rest of this arc. Besides, it’s not every day you see a Ghost Rider in a WWII army tank.

    Comic Watch

    Similar to it's preceding issues, Avengers #57 stumbles in the delivery of what would otherwise be very interesting ideas. In the process, it deprives fans of the type of super heroics and team dynamics that they have to come to expect from an ensemble comic.

    The Avengers #57 is a waystation on the path to something that may or may not earn this long-sustained build.
