Uncanny Avengers 1 Review – Remender and Cassaday

Uncanny Avengers 1 Review. Rick Remender and John Cassaday.Uncanny Avengers 1 Review Short Version: Uncanny Avengers 1 is as much about getting the pieces into place and making sure everyone is caught up with the story so far as it is really getting things going. Still, Remender’s writing for the characters is well done, Cassaday’s art is great, and the formation of the newest team of Avengers is nearly in place. And it needs to get ready because, given the end of the issue, things are about to get crazy.

Uncanny Avengers 1 Review

Uncanny Avengers 1 is my first foray into mainstream superhero comics in a long time. I was curious enough by the promise of a sea-change for the Marvel Universe that I decided to check in and see what things were all about. And I expect that I will be staying for a good, long while. Rick Remender has to go about the work of putting the team together and showing us where various characters are (Spoilers, I suppose, Professor X is quite dead and Cyclops is locked up) so that this can form a nice jumping on point for new readers. It’s certainly a motley crue crew  that has been put together, but Remender does an excellent job of showing the characters’ awareness that the Avengers had never really supported the X-men over the years despite all of the persecution against the latter group. Oh, and then there’s the end, which is really what this is all about. We get a villain reveal and the beginning of what the plan is which, from the looks of it, should be well worth keeping an eye. So if you’re wondering if you should jump on at Uncanny Avengers 1, you really should. Watching this team figure out who it is all while facing some real A-list competition right from the get-go makes this a very exciting book for me. I hope they keep it from too many crossovers and let Remender and Cassaday work, but I’m pretty excited to see where things are going after this issue. There’s some housecleaning there, but that’s to be expected. Overall, it’s a great first issue for the Marvel Now series.
