When I was rereading and skimming through Hickman's Avengers & New Avengers to do the post on Smasher (and eventual posts on Pod & Validator), I took more notice of the art in these two runs. In particular, I took a closer look at Mike Deodato Jr.'s artwork that he provided for many of the issues. When the guy was good, he pretty dang good and drew some very nice pieces.

Izzy and her wedgie-giving costume all artists like to detail.

If there was one thing I really liked during Jonathan Hickman's Avengers run, it was Issue #5, the introduction to Isbael "Izzy" Dare (later changed to Isabel Kane), the new Smasher. I thought it was a great issue that was filled with character, emotion, drama, no pretentiousness, and more.

"In old comics, like old sitcoms, it didn’t matter what happened — at the beginning of the next episode you’re back in the status quo. Alan was the first person to go, “You can’t actually do that.” If Superman existed, he would change the world. Miracleman, with almost infinite power, creates a utopia as best he can and sets himself up as a god."

- Neil Gaiman
