Format: Paperback
Collecting issues 25-30 of the Brian Michael Bendis run on The Avengers, this volume runs concurrent with the Avengers Vs X-Men event of 2012, and indeed, the events contained within this volume are based in and around the whole AvX saga.

You will need to read the whole AvX and its related tie-ins to get the bigger picture, like Secret Avengers for example, as part of this story sees our heroes head into space to intercept the Phoenix Force that threatens the Earth (and is the main reason we have AvX in the first place), but the main part of that mission is detailed in the Secret Avengers comic - here we just see the before and after of that. The aftermath is more interesting however; as the Protector (alien Noh-Varr) is tasked by the Kree Supreme Intelligence on a side-mission of his own, which means he has to betray his fellow Avengers.

This half of the volume is the highlight, but the second half is where it starts to falter. After the Noh-Varr part, Red Hulk attempts to infiltrate the X-Men Island of Utopia and assassinate Cyclops and then the Avengers attempt to take out the X-Men's top telepaths. Finally there's a tiresome chapter where Hawkeye and Spiderwoman intercept a raid by Mister Negative on a S.H.I.E.L.D. warehouse in New York - its only link to AvX is that the villain is taking advantage of the fact that the Avengers are busy fighting a war against the X-Men.

In my opinion this is an average volume, and arguably Bendis' worst of his run on this title. But that's ok, as Avengers Vs X-Men was just an average event in the first place. The strong part of this volume is the first 3 issues surrounding Noh Varr as he questions his allegiance to his team and also his Kree homeworld.

I read a library copy of the paperback.
I am a great fan of the Avengers as concept, a group and a title.
I have never been a fan of Bendis's Avengers work. And this is a poor trade even by his standards.
These collected issues take place alongside the crossover AvsX and even that trade is hardly `required reading', these issues are incidental even in comparison to them.
The main AvsX links here make a reference to the action seen elsewhere in the Secret Avengers trade. Although this is supposed to be the flagship title, you wouldn't know it.
Previous trades have returned the Vision to health and the team and Storm has joined, neither of which are really followed up here and with storm being such an important X-Man you would have thought she'd have played a big part in AvsX.
There is much made here of NoVar's / the Protector predicament in the battle, but that's a case of too much too late when it comes to making him an interesting member of the team.
The Red Hulk gets a spotlight issue where Bendis misses the point of Captain America's respect for Rulk's military strategy and uses him in his de-Hulked form - I would much prefer the green guy.
Another issue here is a battle between Hawkeye and Spider-woman against Mister Negative (who?) and Hydra, but really consists of a drawn out `potential-split-up' conversation between our lovebirds that gets dull after a couple of pages.
That's Bendis all round.
The artwork, for once one-artist-for-all-issues is by the much praised Walt Simonson, but I find it poor for him, his figures are blocky and simplistic, glaring and brash, it feels like a cheap imitation of the worst excesses of Simonson.
Not for nothing is the cover chosen for this trade the cover by Mike Deodato and not one of the three possible by Simonson.
I consider myself an Avengers Completest, but not any more, even I won't buy this stuff.
I strongly recommend you move on to the Jonathon Hickman stuff...

5.0 out of 5 stars Walt Simonson! 'Nuff said! 13 April 2013
By Carlos - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
There are some things that we hope don't change ever. One of them is the art of Walt Simonson. He is back! With the same style as in his Thor's unique phase. Probably, if you are new to comics, you don't understand our felling of having Walt Simonson back drawing a sequence of histories. But if you are an old fan of comics, you know what I am talking about. I highly recommend it because of the art.

Very good, but the story jumps around to much. I would've liked more on the main plot.
As to what was going on with Hope.
