The Mighty Avengers #8 Review

Cover Mark Bagley
Writer Brian Michael Bendis
Pencils Mark Bagley
Colored by Justin Ponsor
Lettered by Dave Lanphear

Synopsis: We start with Wasp looking over matching suits for the avengers when Pryme comes in.
There is some mild sexual tension and he gives her a formula that lets her go from being small to giant. The venoms are going off and the Avengers charge. Basically the everyone is Venom, including the new avengers, some of the group (Sentry, Wonderman, Stark, Ms Marvel, and Ares) are immune but the rest change. Stark synthesizes a cure, considers who is and isn't a Skrull, and wonders about their motive. They beat the Venom virus, find out where it came from, and go to invade Dr. Doom's country.

Comments: This was catchup. They wanted to get to get caught up with New Avengers due to the delays caused by the (brilliant but late) artist before Bagley. One thing that spiked my interest is Dr. Doom. He has been up to something (the shifty bastard) and it probably has to do with Secret Invasion. I'm looking forward to it honestly more than Final Crisis because this event is much more original (for comics, in movies they do this all the time ie invasion of the body snatchers), but i like the idea that superheroes are being replaced. This conspiracy stuff really pikes my interest. Stark also came off pretty cool, I think 08 is going to be his year, sure we have the up and coming Bucky but Stark right now, he has become the workhorse of Marvel. Steve Rodgers is dead, Spider-man has effectively been taken out, so now Stark has stepped up and in a big way.
