Four scans from Mighty Avengers #24.

The Avengers zip around the world using Authority-style Pym doors, fighting various villains:

Regarding the Cassie/Hank conversation, that's at least better then only her being aware of it (you can quibble with Hank's strategy, I suppose, but I can't think of any other notable alternatives when dealing with someone who last call was basically omnipotent), though that doesn't cover why no one else seems to care.

Pietro fucks it up, as usual, and the other Avengers beam out, leaving him to run after them again; he narrowly misses them in Tokyo, but finally catches up in France and helps them (and local hero duo Blackjack; this is a Dan Slott comic, so there are guaranteed to be some random minor characters you've never heard of):

That's one way to use the Skrull invasion to your advantage; Jarvis calls bullshit on this story, since he never saw Pietro anywhere on the ship in the time of captivity, and Hank agrees, but says it doesn't matter, and Pietro deserves another chance.

Fake Wanda is not pleased.

Just in general, I think this is one of my favorite Avengers line ups ever.

Can it be? Avengers in classic-styled stories where they actually fight PROPER villains again as opposed to trying to be all gritty and realistic but failing miserably and not actually contribuing one memorable storyline in the last few years?

Seriously, I like more about this issue than I have any of Bendis' work on Mighty, New or Dark Avengers. It's nice to see there might still be a place in the MU for a cheerier Avengers book.

The underlying problem is that this is the exception, and not the norm.

That costume does wonders for Hank.

Frankly, the costume's awesome is mitigated (for me, anyway) by the fact that it apparently took Jan dying for him to finally have a cool one. Just rub it in, why don't you, artists?

Her proper place is, of course, in the kitchen. One day they'll convince Cassie of this, as well.

Actually, it's been well-established in the canon that Cassie is a terrible cook, but doesn't know it. It's one of the aspects of her character from her "li'l sweetheart" days that they haven't used in years, but it was a recurring gag that she was enthusiastic about cooking for her dad, and he heroically endured it with good cheer.

Glorious lunatic indeed. I love Swarm. He's so ridiculous and he will never, ever be the Big Bad. I think his last appearance was in the Thunderbolts as a gigantic ill-defined humanoid, apparently not that eloquent since all he said was "ZZwarm". They beat him by having Venom eat his skeleton.

And the "queen is where the intelligence is stored" makes me snort. Having her central, maybe, but come on! It's one bee. Shouldn't his mind be distributed over more than that?

I think the actual way it was supposed to be was that he controlled the queen who controlled the other bees.

It's a shame they waste Herc on this.

If there is one good thing that Amazons Attack did for the world (and I'm not saying there is) it's that bees will never stop being funny.

I agree that it's nice to finally see a FUN and classic-feeling Avengers team again!

It's the "Freaking Nazi!" that makes the issue for me. :D

That line actually really confused me, til I realised it was Bucky-Cap not Steve-Cap (..right?). I have not been keeping up!

::cough:: Bucky-Cap is in New Avengers. This is Mighty Avengers and is the tough talkin' US Agent, who apparently isn't happy about working for the Green Goblin, commander in chief or no.

Hahah, I tolja I wasn't keeping up! Thank you for the info. :3.

My God, you're right!

Aaron "The Mad Whitaker" Bourque; the one I use isn't it, though.

Regarding the Cassie/Hank conversation, that's at least better then only her being aware of it

I think there's a balance to be struck where Cassie doesn't seem like a petulant whiner and the other Avengers don't look like idiots, and I think it's not being met on either side of the equation, which is annoying. Hank's statement there helps a little, I guess, but not enough to my taste.

On the other hand, SWARM. This is what the Avengers should be doing, and it feels good to watch.

I can't believe Swarm only got two pages; that's the worst ever. He got 7 in Thunderbolts, 7 in Runaways and his previous low, 4 in Spiderman (where he was beat by MJ! Still, a great character and it was fun to watch him fight Yellowjacket, Stature, and Ant Amadeus.

Okay... I think I missed a couple books somewhere.. ...When did Pietro stop being a depowered ex-mutant twit with Terrigen crystals imbedded inside his body and an evil agenda, and when did he become himself again?

It all happened in the X-Factor: the Quick and the Dead oneshot.

It was a good issue.

I love it when they reference the old Champions series, just because they had one of the most unintentionally ridiculous lineups ever: the Greek demigod, the demon biker, the Russian spy, and two mutant boyfriends. Awesome.

And also, well, a Nazi made of bees. Don't hate that.
