Dark Avengers #2 Review

Recently reviewed by me at CBR: Dark Avengers #2, about which I write the following sentences: "And though Bendis may enjoy writing these characters, he doesn't seem to like any of them, which frees him up to put them into motion more rapidly. He doesn't linger with the excessive banter or the decompressed character moments here. He just sets up the dogfight, pulls off the leash, and says 'go!' And they do, indeed, go. All the way to Latveria, where the team is called in to provide back up for a downtrodden Doctor Doom."

Read the entire review HERE.

You're dead-on with your remarks about the lack of "twisted." Bendis makes an effort to recreate Ellis's take on the characters, but since his dialogue has a different rhythm and cadence than Ellis's, it lacks that... "twisted" quality.

Though, that Sentry splash page stopped me dead in my tracks.
