New Avengers #22

The New Avengers hiding from the authorities at Dr. Strange's sanctum sanctorum; Jessica Jones abandoning Luke Cage and taking the baby with her; Captain America about to be tried by the government; Norman Osborn turning everyone against the team; villains becoming Dark Avengers. Just because he wrote these storylines years ago, does not mean Bendis is excused for rehashing them so shamelessly. Another tired plot is that one of the double and triple agents; just like when Spider Woman was working for Nick Fury pretending to work for Hydra pretending to work for the New Avengers, but was really Skrull Queen Veranke, we have a similar pattern with Victoria Hand, who despite being a breakout character back in the day, has now fallen victim of bad writing. Then there's Skaar. Conrad and Deodato's work saves this issue.
