Fallout from Assault on Pleasant Hill cross-over story hits hard in New Avengers #11 as Hulkling, Squirrel Girl and Wiccan try to figure out their collective identity now that A.I.M. supreme leader crafty Roberto Da Costa abandoned them.

This journey in New Avengers #11 is especially important to Wiccan, who is suffering from his own identity crisis, looming large for him now that he wants to marry Hulkling. Wiccan starts channelling his inner-Captain America and takes charge, birthing a new New Avengers.

After reuniting with Hawkeye, having his own identity problems, the team take down B-list villain the Plunderer. “I’ve fought him six times and I am this close to getting him to give everything back,” says Squirrel Girl, who always takes super-heroine to new levels.

For New Avengers #11 Gerardo Sandoval’s art is eye-pleasing, but unfortunately, Squirrel Girl has reverted back to a somewhat freakish look. Colourist Donald Sánchez Almara adds lots of depth and interesting palate of colour choices.

Part superhero adventure, part spy thriller, New Avengers #11 manages to entertain while nudging the story forward toward Marvel’s upcoming Civil War II event. The next issue advertises A.I.M. versus S.H.I.E.L.D. and the New Avengers slice of the Civil War pie promises to be a very tasty dish indeed.
