My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This sort of sums up this entire run…
Unfortunately, now it’s over.
Oh well, better to go out in a blaze of glory, right?
This volume wraps up our time with the Young Avengers, and ushers in the beginnings of Loki: Agent of Asgard, Vol. 1: Trust Me.
Like always, I accidentally read everything out of order, and even that didn’t have much of an effect on how much I enjoyed this limited run.
Mother has captured Hulking, so the majority of the issues revolve around the team trying to find a way to rescue him that won’t result in the end of the world.
Without adults being able to see what’s happening around them, it’s up to the younger set of heroes to step up and save everyone.
The scenes with Captain America were pretty funny.
The last few issues take place at a New Year’s Eve party that serves as an epilogue of sorts. Everything gets wrapped up quite nicely, and there aren’t any goofy plots threads left dangling.
You do find out who the Not-Patriot is, and I thought it was a fairly clever little twist.
Loki’s Guitly Conscience plays a big role in this, but not in the way you might think…
The relationships between the characters go through some changes, also.
Some of the lurve survives, some of it doesn’t, but it was all handled well.
I have to say, I’m sort of attached to this group now, and I’m hoping we’ll get to see all of these guys again soon.
