At a time when mutant and human relations are in the toilet, the Uncanny Avengers have run smack into a new BROTHERHOOD OF EVIL MUTANTS, and, folks, lemme tell you – they came here to beat up Avengers and X-Men and chew gum, and they’re all outta gum. Wake up, babe, a new romance hits that will make readers froth at the mouth. Plus, Ben Urich. Always the mark of a quality and important Marvel Comic. FOOM!

    The Story: Duggan raises the stakes for the team while also showcasing the ripples within it. I continue to love the mystery of who Captain Krakoa is, but I’m starting to whittle down my suspect list which is fun. I like seeing division in the team and Duggan gives Deadpool a great moment in the issue where he confronts them about that division. I’m enjoying this series a lot and look forward to seeing what happens next. The Art: Garron creates some fantastic visuals throughout the issue. The art is lively, beautifully detailed and delivers on the tone of the story brilliantly.

    ‘Uncanny Avengers’ #2 is a pretty fun and interesting issue that is held down a bit by a pretty egregious out of place moment. A smooth action-packed issue that begins to pull the curtain back just a bit more on Captain Krakoa and his motives.

    Uncanny Avengers #2 is a good issue when setting things up. The bigger story of Captain America being a chosen leader, rather than one the mutants are stuck with, is a compelling one that’ll be fun to see play out. That said, this issue doesn’t have much excitement and bite as the opening issue.

    Unity Squad is back, and better than ever! With this all star crew, Uncanny Avengers, and X-Men scribe Gerry Duggan, and former Avengers artist Javier Garron are back with this motley crew, as they The issue picks right up where we left off, and that’s with the Cap. Krak breaks Captain America’s arm in front of the MLF, and the new Uncanny Avengers roster, before getting away with an atomic warhead, all in the mmThere were a couple things that jumped out at me upon my first read through, and the biggest was Duggan heavily implying that Andreas is either gay, or in love with his sister, both of which could be a very difficult subject.

    The latest issue of Uncanny Avengers partially addresses the criticisms I had of its first issue, if it can really handle the fallout of the Hellfire Gala in a meaningful way. That answer is still unclear but at least the question itself is becoming a narrative point for the entire series. Series artist Javier Garrón is tasked with an issue that has minimal action beats compared to the first, but manages to make his visual style flourish (with help from colorist Morry Hollowell) even when a bulk of the panels are simple dialogue exchanges between parties that aren't moving. There's still promise here, and also some suspicion on my part.
