Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Ooooh Rick Remender, again this volume just like the previous is a strange mix of delight and disgust. Those who found some of his portrayals of established characters slightly off in the first arc 'The Descendants' may find similar here again. Indeed if you are (like me) an old school Captain Britain fan you may have cause to doubt your faith that any American writer will ever recapture Brian Braddocks true voice. During this run Remender was widely criticised over his treatment of my nations hero (a lot in fact by your humble reviewer).

But this book is really two stories in one. The first three issues (or chapters)of this collection deal with the big summer event Avengers vs X-Men. This does derail the overall set up of the title briefly, changing much of the cast for this story. The art by Renato Guedes for this arc is an aquired taste but I did find myself warming to it. The cast is probably the best line-up that I've seen and under different circumstances I would have loved to have had this as the main Avengers membership. Thor leads a team of Valkyrie, Beast, War Machine, Captain Britain, Protector, Ms Marvel and Vision into space on a suicide mission to head off the Phoenix Force that is heading to Earth leaving destruction in its wake.

Unlike many of the AvX tie ins though this is quite a good stab at creating tension outside the main series. Strangely however Bendis wrote another tie story to AvX over in 'Avengers' using this cast.....the themes are virtually identical and it's hard to reconcile the two. Someone wasn't paying much attention at an editorial meeting...

The mission goes horribly wrong straight away and it's when Captain Britain attempts to rush headlong into saving the day that Remenders wrong footing of Braddock becomes evident.

Format: Paperback
The stories running through issues #26-32 of Secret Avengers are collected as Secret Avengers by Rick Remender - Volume 2. There are two stories collected, issues #26-28 being an AvX story, and continues a story from Avengers by Brian Michael Bendis - Volume 4 (AVX). The second, from issues #29-32, concerns the third of the `Serpent Crowns', and its unification with the other two, now in the hands of Max Fury and the Masters of Evil. The first features a collection of Big Guns, such as Thor, Captain Marvel, Captain Britain, the Vision, War Machine, Valkyrie, Noh-Varr, the Beast, and Captain Marvel. The second has a sneakier cast, though still with some big guns, and features Black Widow, Hawkeye, the Beast, Valkyrie, Captain Britain, Venom (the good one) and most of the original Human Torch. This story is also a continuation, but from the previous volumes of Secret Avengers. The latest Ant-Man is also present, but not included in the cast list, though that may be because of space, rather than anything at all spoilery. And they both feature a hero believed to be dead.

The stories are well-written and well-illustrated, though the AvX one is in what I would call a European, if not a French, style, and is therefore going to look strange to people used to regular Marvel artists, though the Kree certainly look alien as a result. It is also a bit of a filler, as the story continues back in Avengers volume 4 as if nothing much happened. The second is packed full of Secret Avengers continuity, with some serious events, decisions and reveals, leading into the next volume.

The first half of this trade is an AvX crossover and doesn't really add anything to the `Secret Avengers' library. As such it really should have found itself collected somewhere else and never printed under this title - so far away is it from the `Descendants'# story Remender has been building.
That said, it is one of my favourite phases of the AvX as it centres on the Original captain Marvel and contains the catalyst events for Ms Marvel to convert herself to the `new' Captain Marvel.
I heartily recommend this - even to those not enamoured with the AvX crossover as this is indeed important Avengers history being made.
The rest of the trade returns us to more suitable Secret Avengers turf.
I surprise myself by actually liking this Agent-Venom spin, such a shame the relationship with Valkyrie never really catches on - they're good together!
I warmed to the new Ant man more than I expected and whilst I agree Captain Britain is a backward step it is still good to see him interacting with this team.

its worth reading to get to next volume 14 Sep 2014
By kitten86 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
It was a little confusing when it had the Avengers vs. X-men: The Phoenix Force between the the secret avengers storyline. I did like The Phoenix Force short story in this volume and liked the interaction between the characters, mainly Ms. Marvel and Captain Marvel. It was nice that I didn't have to read the rest of avengers vs x-men volumes to understand the story.

The rest of volume was about the Secret Avengers:A Council Of Masters. The writing and interaction between the characters was good for the most part, mainly anything to do with vemon. I plan on reading the next volume to see what will happen but it did feel like this was a lot of fluff to increase the number of issues they could sell.

The artwork is ok, it just not to my taste. But it's always nice to see different types of artwork. Overall, it was an ok read but I hope it gets better. I would rate it 2 1/2 stars if it would let me.
Remender is disappointing 21 Mar 2014
By Ricky - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I was really excited to see Remender take a run at a lot of my favorite comic book characters in the Marvel-verse, but unfortunately he has disappointed me at just about every turn. I think he starts everything very well, but then he hits this middle wall and doesnt know how to finish. I felt the same thing with uncanny xforce and Captain America. Great starts to all of his stories, but just falls flat about half way through. With that being said I can say I am not any more of a fan of where spencer is taking secret avengers... so whatever that means. Not the worst read, but I have read a lot better. I would rent, borrow, or buy on sale not full price.

Space Avengers 29 Aug 2013
By Joel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
An avenger returns from the dead and the secret avengers with some famous avengers try to stop the Phoenix force from reaching earth. It was an interesting read, really like the art and cover art in this one. Don't want to say too much more without giving more stuff away, if you're curious, check it out.

An important villain will rise at the end, and im sure you'll guess who it is by the time you're done.
