New Avengers #18 hits the stands today.
Norman Osborn re-assembles his Dark Avengers team.

Just kidding about the Dick Cheney.
But Osborn has brought together some scary people.

Most of the issue is the various factions of Hydra, AIM, the Hand coming together under those still loyal to H.A.M.M.E.R. and their reasoning why. Inbetween, we see Norman going around the world recruiting his heavy hitters.

The line-up:
Wolverine (the Gorgon), Scarlet Witch (Toxie Doxie), Hulk (Skaar), Spider-man (Ai Apaec), Ms. Marvel (Suprema), Hawkeye (Bart Barton).

Not pictured: Thor (Ragnarok cyborg clone).

Clone-Thor is still around? Didn't Asgard crash-land on his head during Siege?

I thought that he was last seen in The Initiative.

I'll have to look that out as I don't remember how it ended

He appeared in the Initiative soon after Secret Invasion, and escapes, but then re-surfaces in Siege: Thor, where he and Thor have a big fight in issue #610. Thor wins, but the disposal of his body doesn't seem to be treated (unless it's in Siege Aftermath, which I haven't checked. Or the main mini, but I'm sure I would remember that).

He actually ends up confronting Volstagg underneath floating Asgard, and then gets crushed when the Sentry brings the place down (Volstagg, amazingly enough, proves better at getting out of the way). In order for him to appear here, AIM needs to have dug him out from underneath, under the noses of the Asgardians.

Thor later took him the fuck out when they were clearing rubble, so it might be a new one.

I'd forgotten that. No, it's supposed to be the same one, in need of some serious repairs, and somehow AIM is strapped for cash. Geez, don't any of them have patents that are still paying out, like Reed Richards, or have they never invented something actually useful?

There are only so many times you can use a "Destroy the world laser/bomb (It's practical because it has TWO functions!)".

True, but you should be able to sell multiples of them to different world governments. Every little nation wants its own WMD deterrent, after all.

Or there was another turncoat working for SHIELD/Avengers, a la Carolina Washington.

It's a cyborg clone. If worst came to worst all Osborn needs to do is find the old plans and make a new one.
