The Standoff on Pleasant Hill cross-over serial continues in Uncanny Avengers #7 as Cable, Deadpool (dressed like a golfer since it’s Connecticut), Synapse, Rogue, Doctor Voodoo, Quicksilver and the Human Torch descend on the fake town. S.H.I.E.L.D Commander Maria Hill built the Stepford-like burg using Cosmic Cube fragments in order to imprison supervillains, brainwashed to forget their identities.

The team arrives just as the Wrecker and Hill are trying to escape. But when S.H.I.E.L.D. shows up to retrieve them Rogue chooses to fight. “One Guantanamo isn’t enough for our government?” she says. But more importantly, it’s a Marvel first as a super-villain, Wrecker, yells “Avengers Assemble!”

Cable is loving it. “I thought throwing in with an Avengers team would bore the piss out of me…but this has been fun.” He’s right. Fast-paced and exciting Uncanny Avengers #7 also has great dialogue, characterisations and interactions. Plus, the art team produce beautifully drafted panels and the detailed colouring looks air-brushed.

Uncanny Avengers #7 is not just a good instalment of the tale so far but stands up in its own right, which is what a good story is supposed to do. Standoff on Pleasant Hill continues in All-New, All-Different Avengers #7, and we can’t wait to see what happens next.
