Having enjoyed both "Luke Cage - Powerman!" and "Shaft" back in the 70's (yes, I really am that old) it's a huge pleasure to return to that scene as re-imagined in the alternative future of The House of M. Forget The Avengers of the movie or the other comic books. These Avengers are a bunch of 2nd and 3rd rate characters only we nerds have ever heard of. But what a blast to see how Gage and Perkins play around with them, giving some meaning to the name of the group, bringing other Marvel characters in and out on unexpected tangents. Well-worth 10 quid!

House of M: Avengers 13 Aug. 2008
By M. Mullen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
For long time Marvel fans this is quite a treat. Set in the alternate Magneto-controlled reality of the House of M storyline, House of M: Avengers provides a deep retelling of the origins of the Earth's mightiest champions.
This time around though, instead of classic A-listers like Thor, Iron Man, and Captain America, the story focuses on the good that less tradition characters can accomplish. Led by Luke Cage, this rag tag team comprised of many lesser known but equally heroic characters inspires humanity to stand up against their mutant overlords.
Great writing and artwork throughout will keep you from putting this book down until you've read it cover to cover.

Slick as all get out 10 Jun. 2009
By Patrick M. Carroll - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is the best part of House of M. This thing is tense, taut, action packed and sexy. I am usually not a fan of the re-imaginings of characters but the alternate unvierse here is gripping. I want more! Luke Cage makes a great central figure and the Robin Hoodization of the Avengers is thrilling. I can't wait to read it again!
A good read. 17 Jun. 2014

Overall this is a good story with good art. Luke Cage puts together a rag tag team of Avengers. If you like the House of M line you will dig it the most.
How the House of M came to be Part 1 9 July 2013
By Jeff F - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The first of three prequel miniseries to be released post-crossover event, House of M: Avengers tells the story of the alternate Marvel universe House of M, in which mutants rule and Luke Cage leads a "gang" of non-mutant superpowered heroes against oppressive mutant police in "Sapien Town". This is definitely a fun read, and there's a lot of minor details to like here. Luke Cage's and the Punisher's origin stories are slightly reimagined in light of the altered history of the House of M. The miniseries begins with a wonderful full-page rendering by Mike Perkins of a Times Square greatly changed by a mutant-dominated culture. Writer Christos Gage's affection for 70s Marvel is clear in these stories, as most of the heroes and villains are from that era; fans of Shaft, Enter the Dragon, and The Warriors will probably enjoy House of M: Avengers. Like I said, it's a fun read.

It's not a particularly good one though. Each issue is narrated by a different character, but Gage never finds a distinctive voice for any of them (even in the issue narrated by the Punisher!) This device is dropped entirely by the fourth issue and then partially resurrected for the final issue. The artwork is adequate, although it's sometimes difficult to tell characters apart. The characterization in the story itself is weak as well. What epitomizes the entire miniseries for me is Luke Cage's reaction to racist humans; he actually says "Sapien please!"
Starring roles for Marvel B-team characers 13 Jun. 2010
By Bao-tram Nguyen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Pretty good alternative history. Alot of the backstory, unless you are a marvel fiend will go over your head, such as the rival gangs, and moon knight's back story. Artwork was uneven with some issues having alot of detail, and others being very amateurish.
