    I like the chemistry between these guys. I wasn't sure if I would, but they're kinda cute when you smoosh 'em all together. Unfortunately, there wasn't really one continuous story arc in this volume, and the sporadic feel didn't do the title any favors. The first part deals with the All New, All-Different Avengers part in Standoff (you know, the one at Pleasant Hill?) storyline. They show up, fight some other heroes, get mindwiped by the Cosmic Kid, and then Wade saves the day! Because when there's I like the chemistry between these guys.

Because when there's a child with apocalypse-level power who's teetering on the edge, Deadpool is the guy you want to call in to talk them down. I know you probably think I'm being sarcastic, but...no. He's actually great with kids. shrugs They also go on a space adventure to try to find Sam's dad, and end up saving planet full of crash survivors from Annihilus. Nothing special, but it was good in that Silly Space Adventure kind of way. But before that they meet Hank Pym's daughter (secret baby from wife #1) who's now calling herself Wasp. Interesting backstory, and it looks like she she has the potential to end up on this team. I don't really feel one way or another about that... Likable characters, decent writing, nice art. I don't know why this didn't make me jump up and down more than it did, but I certainly didn't hate it. I imagine I'll keep up with this one, but I wouldn't spend any $$$ on it for now.

    Wow this is tettering towards a 1 but I'ma give it a 2 cause the art is half way decent and I still think the dialog can be good. So right off the bat this volume is messy. Got the Stand Off event from Marvel that has the Avengers come into the village but most are broken up from each other, the ones who remain aren't really that interesting, and then we get back to the real world. Except this volume mostly focuses on should we "trust" vision? Is he still bad? Does the team get along?

Bad: The entire plot is missing any type of themes or richness to it. I'm surprised Waid is writing this because he's far better than this. Also the volume is messy and multiple stories in one that don't connect in any real way. Overall a big miss. I want better from the main avenger title for sure. This is a 1.5 out of 5.

    Two Wasps are better than one! Vote: 3, 5 Covers are far better than stories (Of course! He's Alex Ross drawing them, man!), first half of the volume sucked for good, I can't stand the kid Avengers trio (but for Kamala) and I'm always expecting more from Waid... But I liked the Annihilus storyline and I love Nadia Pym, the All-New Wasp. Mark Waid and Alan Davis totally nailed the character and her duets with Jarvis and her step-mom Janet are the best parts of this volume. Two Wasps are better than one!

    I love this line-up, I love this creative team and, for the most part, I'm loving this book. The second half of this collection made me happy in a way no Avengers book has since Kurt Busiek's awesome run. The first half, though... The 'Standoff' crossover? Ugh... Pointless hero vs. hero slugfest. Less of this kind of thing, please.

    Waid definitely knows what he's doing with these characters, but he just couldn't get a really good story together in this volume.

    Mark Waid continues to write a comic about great characters … that somehow isn't that great. It might not entirely be his fault in the first three issues. The first two are bound up in the Standoff crossover, and though the first is a nice setup, the second makes absolutely no sense. It's yet another case of Marvel deciding to put incoherent parts of crossovers in individual collections for no obvious reason. The third issue, then, is the introduction of the All-New Wasp.

And though she's a great character, and though Waid writes her well, he appearance stinks of editorial mandate and drags the comic to a halt while the meeting occurs. But even when Waid's on his own in the last three issues, the comic doesn't really take a big upturn. The idea of a battle against Annhilus in the Negative Zone, with numerous alien races on the sidelines, is great and very evocative. But it's just a long fight. And then, after the Avengers escape the Negative Zone, we get another long fight in the final issue, this time with a single twist that is grossly overused. This isn't exactly a bad collection (except that incoherent issue #8), but it's not a particularly great one either. My interest in continuing to read Waid's Avengers continues to wane.

    I’m just not loving it. I don’t read Avengers to hang with a bunch of kids. I want grownup heroes doing grownup shit! This was very scrappy and cutesy, with Sam Alexander, Kamala Kahn, Miles Morales and kid Wasp quipping their way around, making silly jokes, poking fun at each other and basically killing any and all dramatic tension. Like... I get it... hero comics are for kids, but what about Hickman’s Avengers? Why can’t Avengers continue being like that? Don’t we already have Young Avengers and I’m just not loving it.

    Hmmm. The first half if rather slight. Being the Standoff crossover portion of the book. Second half of the book is much better. We're introduced to another new version of the Wasp. This time she's Hank Pym's daughter from his first wife. This is very fun to read. Especially when Nadia Pym meets up with Jarvis and Janet Van Dyne. Later, the team goes to space to help Sam search for his father. And it's a fun little adventure. I'm so pleased Waid is still around at Marvel. He's one of few names t Hmmm.

He's one of few names that's in a vast ocean of new names post-Secret Wars which has stuck me as a whole as being like an extended Assistant Editor's Month. Artwise, there are a couple issues by Adam Kubert (oddly would never have known it had I not read his name) and a few pages by my beloved Alan Davis. Still getting used to the idea of having teens on the Avengers, other than Rick Jones. Still seems odd-ball to me. Though I do love the new Nova and I do love the Miles Morales Spider-man. Can't quite say I love the new Ms Marvel. Her powers are a bit too creepy and not Marvel-esque. I can see why they were added from a Marketing reason. The kids are popular! Let's put them in the Avengers! Even though it makes no sense at all if you've read the Avengers for any length of time. For example, the Tony Stark, or even Steve Rogers of the Civil War 1 era would never allow teens on the team to be exposed to the danger involved. Go back read from Perez/Busiek era to present you'll get what I mean.

    4.5 stars. My favorite part of this series is the team and while it was great to see Jan again (screw you Marvel for putting her on the back burner) I could have done without the Nadia portion. Anyway, Nova's going through some stuff because his dad is missing and it's making him emotional and irrational. Vision is trying to atone for what he did when he was reprogrammed. The scene with him and Kamala almost made me tear up a bit. Jane says she kissed Sam because of the heat of the moment which, 4.5 stars.

The scene with him and Kamala almost made me tear up a bit. Jane says she kissed Sam because of the heat of the moment which, after Supergirl s2e1, rubs me the wrong way. There could have been something there but the writers abandoned it for some reason. Okay. Tony doesn't seem to have anything going on. Jarvis has a subplot and Tony doesn't; which was interesting. Kamala and Miles both just seem to be adjusting to life as an Avenger. The plot with the aliens was okay. I enjoy the earth stuff more. Next stop is Civil War II and I might be stopping here because I still think that arc is total bullshit.

    [Read as single issues] The All-New All-Different Avengers get swept up into crossover hell as part of Standoff to begin with, so I've copied over my review from the Standoff collection rather than repeat myself: These issues are more of a mini-arc within Standoff itself as the Uncanny and All-New All-Different Avengers are drawn to Pleasant Hill by mysterious twin Maria Hills, and find themselves under Kobik's influence and assimilated into Pleasant Hill itself.

This ends a little too quick, as if they're mostly just being forced into Standoff by editorial mandate. Oh, wait. Still, solid if unremarkable, especially for as good a writer as Mark Waid. Adam Kubert's artwork is extremely rushed in these issues too; I still don't think he should be on a monthly book, even one where he rotates with other artists. He always seems to have one or two really good issues and then the rest all fall apart very quickly. Luckily, Mahmud Asrar steps in to pencil the following 4 issues, which are much better in both artwork and storyline, as the Avengers head off into space to help Nova find his father, picking up from a plot thread over in Nova's solo series. Of course, they get caught off-track by Annihilus, and the team has to rescue a planet of refugees from the Negative Zone. This story is much better for characterization and action, blowing the Standoff story out of the water easily. Crossover hell hurts All-New All-Different Avengers in this second volume, with the second story excelling in both story and art, whilst the Standoff issues feel rushed and unnecessary on every level.

    Definitely the best Avengers comic out there right now. This volume gets brought down though by those Standoff crossover issues. You only get bits of the story and are missing a large chunk of it between issues. Skip the first 2 issues and read them as part of the Avengers: Standoff collection. The final four issues have the team headed into space to look for Nova's dad. They get ambushed by Anhillus. I really liked how they stopped him using the nega bands.

    Man, for such an amazing team of Avengers, this volume was pretty mediocre. I love these characters so much, but I just couldn't get excited here. Also the art made the last issue confusing, they were very inconsistent with who was and wasn't wearing transportation jewelry when it mattered greatly in the story.

It seems that artists switched halfway thro the book too and I'm not a big fan of that but I guess that's how comics are after all I loved the relationship dynamics between sam Wilson and Jane foster but I cannot believe she has to 'restart' chemo every time she becomes Thor.

I love that sam respects her decision altho he doesn't agree with it. He's the only avenger who knows her real identity, after all I really don't like the vision - he keeps acting up and getting hacked or whatever. But I loved the scene near the beginning with Kamala (altho showing up at her school was sorta creepy) where he gives her the data he has of the past in the form of virtual reality stuff so she could take a look at how the avengers fought & stuff Also!!! I loved that Maria Hill showed up to help them and everything I'm so happy Nadia was introduced even after Pym was gone (sad she didn't get to meet her father), I still don't understand why Jarvis got all fired up when she said she was Hank 's daughter. But!! He took her to meet the old wasp who was happy to meet her and didn't mind sharing being the wasp with her step daughter. I'm wondering what these Russian consulate dudes want from her but let's hope she's not actually in trouble for disappearing after she said she went to meet her father. I also loved how everything was working out with the avengers helping Nova look for his father. Him and Ms Marvel seem to get along pretty well compared to the previous volume. Him and Spider-Man are such an amazing team too. I hope his father is alright

    The first two issues seem like they are preludes to Civil War II. Kobik, the sentient Cosmic Cube is introduced and a sample of her powers and mental state are exemplified. This was fairly confusing and really felt like I was missing some major plot points. The contents page has a short blurb about what's going on with SHIELD and Pleasant Hill but it wasn't enough.

This volume also includes the Free Comic Book Day issue that introduces the new Wasp. I believe this now completes the Avengers Doppleganger team, except for Black Widow (as far as I know). The twist here is just who her parents were and just like with the Hawkeyes, Janet van Dyne actually likes her. The last two issues have the team go out into space to deal with a bad guy. This was mundane, had some minor plot technical issues that were just ignored and you also have more of the kid Avenger "wow!" stuff. Very uninspired.

    I rarely write actual reviews of the trades that I read. Instead, I usually voice my thoughts about the writer, or the characters, or the state of the comic industry, when the trade came out. In the case of this book, it feels like a reminder of how frequently Marvel books shift, as far as creative teams and status quo. I think that Waid is still on the title at this point. this book came out in the past year, and there is already going to be a relaunch of the title, with a slightly different tea I rarely write actual reviews of the trades that I read.

Why couldn't they spend a few years focusing on this particular team? I really like this dynamic- The older avengers serving as mentors for the younger characters. Don't answer that question for me, I know the answer- it is because Marvel makes it a point to relaunch their titles every year or so, at this point. that dynamic is the strong point of this particular trade. The weak point? the book becomes incoherent when they throw in a tie - in to the Stand Off crossover. Once that is over, the book gets right back on track.

    Mark Waid has been kickin out some good ones lately, So with this fun and unexpected grab-bag of heroes, and with the very talented Adam Kubert to help us visualize the story, it can be pretty durn good. But for me things really kicked up a notch when this Mahmud Asrar took over the pencils and inks (with Dave McCaig on colors)! Wow, pretty superb stuff art-wise!

    Pretty charming, as you expect from writer Waid and these fine artists. The crossover with Standoff is slight. I like the all-new, all-different Wasp more than I thought I would, though, making her pretty much the standout here. Especially because she meets here and does not exclude Janet Van Dyne, the winsome Wasp. Recommended.

    Negative zone antics, malfunctioning androids, and a fun waspy day out make up the bulk of this volume. And while Mark Waid does keep the story light and fun, the lack of any major repercussion or sense of danger really kept this book from being as good as it could be. This volume begins with two tie in stories from Standoff. So right away, annoying, cause you don't get the whole story. But if we move passed those first two issues, then we get a nice four parter about the team and the new member Negative zone antics, malfunctioning androids, and a fun waspy day out make up the bulk of this volume.

This volume begins with two tie in stories from Standoff. So right away, annoying, cause you don't get the whole story. But if we move passed those first two issues, then we get a nice four parter about the team and the new member, the Wasp. She is the unknown daughter of Hank Pym, who has basically grown up in a Russian gulag, training in the same stuff that her famous dad was known for. She tracks down the avengers in order to get more info on her dad and learn her own identity. This results in Jarvis and her taking a road trip to meet the original wasp, who takes her on a nice day out to bond. This was a fun subplot that worked well contrasted against the main plot. The main plot was the team going into the negative zone and trying to get back while Annihilus tries to destroy our world (again). And while this story did have some cool moments (like Thor vs Annihilus) I did have some problems with the decisions that the characters made. I mean, they discover a portal that goes who-knows-where and they, as a team, decide to jump in and see what happens. Really? Is that a good strategy? It leads to the Negative zone, half team immediately gets imprisoned by Annihilus, and the other half are definitely out of their element. Then when they get thir shit together and finally have Annihilus on the ropes, Nova decides to try and kill him himself and messes everything up. Ugh... Mark Waid is a fantastic writer and I usually really like his stuff, but some of the story beats of this book where straight up confusing. But like I said, the volume is pretty fun overall, has some cool moments, and the art is great. Asrar is a consistently solid artist, and seeing his work is always a pleasure. I would recommend this to Avengers fans definitely.

    It's by Mark Waid, so it reads well. And the art is good. But parts of it are just too ridiculous. First couple issues are tie-ins to Standoff. They don't stand alone, and probably should have been left out completely. Then we get the debut of the new Wasp, who fixes the Vision's issue of corrupted software by placing tiny bombs in his head.

So, yeah. Readable but kind of stupid.

    Having not followed the series, I was very confused reading this volume. The first story arc abruptly ends after chapter 2 (issue #8) and a completely new arc begins with an introduction of the new Wasp. I was left scratching my head.

    This volume is only "okay". I give it three because this volume is broken up into two seperate arcs. The first arc is only 2 issues long as it is part of the Standoff company wide story arc. The two issues by themselves will not make a lick of sense as they occur at two different critical moments. The second arc is self containing and not that bad.

    This volume was all over the place. After some Avengers: Standoff tie in issues, the story takes a breather to introduce the new Wasp (long lost daughter of Hank Pym). After that interlude, The Avengers go to space to find Sam's lost dad. I can't say I know where this title is going with these separate stories, I will stick around for them, but I can't help wishing they were stronger tales in the first place.

    Some clever writing to be found in this edition, with a great and extended battle in the Negative Zone against a familiar F.F baddie that offers new takes on classic material, and expands on it as expected by a writer of Waid's caliber. I liked this second book better than the first collection, which admittedly, had growing pains in establishing the team and reasons to pull them together as a group.

    So I guess this volume includes a segment arc from another series that you need to have read to understand what’s going on? Which I haven’t? So I didn’t? (Although Deadpool playing therapist for a traumatized little girl was sweet.) Luckily the rest of the volume is a continuation of Vol 1, which I HAVE read, so I enjoyed it.
