I'd never really read Avengers before the movie, so now I have to fix that. So these aren't exactly THE Avengers, they're the other Avengers, with some overlap. (Seriously, does Wolverine even sleep?) The team strikes me as being an odd combination, but I'm at least passingly familiar with the characters. Except Mockingbird, but she didn't leave much of an impression on me anyways. This particular storyline is heavily mystical. The writing was solid, and I loved how the characters interacted. And being a brand-new team, little backstory knowledge is required, for which I am incredibly grateful.
