Review: Uncanny Avengers #27

untitledIt’s hard to take a stand when the world keeps spinning…

The Unity Squad just wanted to get some sleep after all the chaos that followed the Hydra take over, but Graviton had other plans for them. Jim Zub brings us a good issue, giving this reader at least a fun, action packed issue that brings me back to the days of the Avengers just doing what they do best. Not worrying about a world take over, or mental break down or cosmic cube, but rather going toe to toe with an old school villain just wanting to bring a smack down.  This team has really found its footing and they smoothly move into action, including the Scarlet Witch who just came to the team last issue. Personally, I think Wasp should be leading this Squad instead of Rogue as it is a role she has played in the past, but I get that this book is trying to show Rogue growing and coming into her own.

Sean Izaakse does a good job with the art duties in this issue.  Each character has their own personality, the expressions and movements are fluid and the action scenes are fast and put us right into the battle. I wouldn’t mind seeing costume redesigns for a few characters, but that’s just an ongoing wish with me and this book.

Overall, this was a fun read and I enjoyed it. It really just brought me back to the times where it was the good guys squaring off against the bad guys without any politics or anything heavier bringing it all down. I am loving the addition of Scarlet Witch to the team, not only because she is one of my favorite characters, but I have always loved the dynamic between Pietro and Wanda and how they interact on the same team. A lot has happened between them recently, so it will be interesting to see them back together again.
