The Mighty Avengers #9 Review

Writer: Brian Michael Bendis
Artist: Mark Bagley
Inker: Danny Miki

Synopsis: So Doom is chilling in the past, you know, nailing Morgan Le Fay (yeah, hes got game like that). She asks him for a gift and he says he can't because that could mess up time and he takes off and goes back to the future only to find that Tony Stark is getting ready to totally invade his country.

He tells them get out of the plane and goes 9-11 on Doom's castle (to soon? please comment). He jumps out and the Mighty Avengers start going to work on Doom's army. Three splash pages later Doom and Iron Man stare each other down. They start to go armor to armor when Doom brings out the magic and starts winning the fight. They end up falling into the time machine and are sent to some mysterious dimension along with Sentry who tried to bail out Tony. The Mighty Avengers regroup and try to figure out what the fuck happened.

It was nice to read but you won't remember it in a week. It looks really nice though, I can't stress that enough. The thought bubbles are getting old since they aren't saying anything funny but things that they should say out loud, in other words they are getting pretty useless. The comic does have moments but it earns a
