So the Avengers are called to a pocket dimension helping a farming tribe defend themselves from barbarians. The thing is, they realize that if they just defeat them this year, the Marauders will just regroup and try again later.
I love the characterization in MA:A. I don't think I can stress that enough. The characters are all heroic, but they're also humans too.
Also, I really do enjoy how Storm gets to be really bad ass without an overflow of T&A shots. I'm just sayin'.
And look at how Bruce Banner gets to be smart when he's not Hulking out! D'aww!
I love this Wolverine so much more than the gritty, growly one that basically goes 'snikt' and drinks beer. Perhaps I'm biased, but I don't think we'd ever get scenes like this in current 616 canon.
Okay, more Storm being awesome. She's playing a part to intimidate the enemy, but, I mean, that's still scary as all hell.
Actually, I'm only including the next page because of Spidey. Look at that outfit. Everyone else gets minor modifications to their costumes and he gets an entirely new set of clothing. Look at his little tunic! Look at his buccaneer boots!
In the end, the Avengers save the day and the tribe insists on paying them. Only they're farmers, so the Avengers come trooping home to Jarvis with three tons of rice and beans. It's a glorious page, which is why you should go buy the comic to see it!
