    Default Avengers: Initiative

    Is this worth the read? I'm currently reading Road to Civil War and will read the Civial war series next....thought I'd read the Initiative afterwards. Sorry if this is a re-post...tried to do a search but there is soooo much on here, I didn't see it.

    Initiative is better than the Bendis books. Which I also like. But yeah, the Gage/Slott stuff is consistently better during those Bendis years.

    It's a really good book. They come up with all sorts of cool new characters and kinda rebrand some older ones. I think you'll enjoy it.

    It is a very good book. Though it could dow ith less wangst (sadly par for the course with teen books) and the cast does grow very quickly

    Yeah, Slott was a real breath of fresh air for Avengers during Bendis's stranglehold.

    It's an especially fun read if you enjoy seeing C- and D-Listers get the spotlight.

    I enjoyed it. I wouldn’t touch anything Bendis was writing at the time (pretty much still don’t) so it was really a very enjoyable alternative for not reading the Avengers. I like B,C,D listers. It’s nice to see when they get the spotlight. They even had a character called Butterball.

    I t was pretty good not my favorite but I like it on the whole. It is a concept that should still exist, with or without the Avengers tag.

    I loved it. Personally I thought it dealt with many cast-aside characters as well as I've seen in years of comic reading.

    Mixed bag for me, but I did buy both volumes of the "Complete Series" trades.
