New Avengers #24

The Avengers seem to be getting a bad rap from a segment of readers who think Hope Summers and the Phoenix are the X-Men's business and it was not their place going to Utopia with their guns loaded looking for trouble. This issue by Brian Michael Bendis delves deeper into how the team came to that decision, and in my opinion making it perfectly justifiable. The point this story strongly drives is that this was a difficult choice, and that no one is happy about having to fight their allies and friends. Best part of the issue is that ominous double spread by Mike Deodato with the Avengers getting out of the Helicarrier; it set the tone for the entire issue. Storm's short association with the team is over, and it should never have happened in the first place; it was pointless and poorly planned. The subplot involving Luke Cage and Jessica Jones is tiresome and has already been done; it is time to move on.
