    One thought on “New Avengers: A.I.M., Volume 2: Standoff”

    1. Avengers Idea Mechanics have no shortage of trouble. The Maker is meddling with them again.The Whisperer is desperate and is seeking out the New Avengers help against an increasingly corrupt SHIELD.Doing so means war with SHIELD which Roberto da Costa has no problem with, but he's only taking volunteers. Anyone who isn't sure needs to get off the ship.Standoff was a good volume. Sunspot's New Avengers AIM is an interesting group that is more concerned with doing good than the personal cost to th [...]

    2. Parts of this book are just a damn mess. There's seriously a kaiju fighting a giant robot. And not just any kaiju. It's the American kaiju, which means that it naturally screams "USA!" as it attacks. Which is every bit as fun and confusing as it sounds, I assure you. Probably doesn't help that this book is getting into Civil War II stuff, and I really didn't know what exactly was going on with that stuff. But it's genuinely fun to read, most of the time, and I want to see how Roberto's plan play [...]

    3. [Read as single issues]Al Ewing knows how to do event tie-ins. He's one of those writers who can always make the event work in his favour rather than getting swept up in the event story and forgetting his own story instead. Standoff itself leads to his team battling the Agents of SHIELD, as well as the superbly named American Kaiju (who is basically patriotic Godzilla and it is awesome), all without actually going to Pleasant Hill at all, choosing instead to tie-in to the Whisperer/Rick Jones st [...]

    4. Like Kieron Gillen before him, Al Ewing knows exactly how to handle a crossover: nod, smile, and then incorporate it into whatever you were planning to do anyway. So the recap pages are more than enough to follow anything necessary to understand the story here, which continues the first volume's themes: the difficulties of changing a corrupt system from within, the dithering of Billy, the loveliness of Squirrel Girl. And above all, the awesomeness of mad science, even if it is a tool available t [...]

    5. Ewing's Avengers really continues to excel. The writing is fresh, the characters are strong (particularly the supporting cast), and he pushes the story forward hard through twists and turns.This is the Standoff crossover but fear not that it might be an incomprehensible mishmash like all the other recent single-book crossover collections from Marvel. Nope, Ewing did a great job of taking the core story of Standoff, but really going off in his own direction. I'm not really sure what's going on in [...]

    6. marcus to's art is a blessing as always too bad it was only for a short few issues before going back to the ugly stuff *sigh*

    7. I wasn't too interested reading this volume after the bland first one, I was just getting through it for the Standoff crossover which it had little to do with and Apparently that was a good thing! The Standoff event just wasn't good, and this had nothing to do with Pleasant Hill, the only Standoff connection was rescuing Rick Jones from Shield. Anyway I gave this a 2nd read after reading U.S.Avengers and realizing how silly it was but in a fun way, and remembering this had the same feel. I thoug [...]

    8. I wonder, in the long run, will this book be remembered? This is such an out there team, Squirrel girl? Sunspot as the team leader? The team is supported by the Mad Scientist Terrorist Group, AIM. Such an ambitious title. Will it get the credit it deserves? This is what All New, All New Different Marvel should all be about. God, I love Al Ewing.

    9. On the one hand, this has Dumb Event Stuff going on and I barely followed WTF was going on at several points. On the other hand, there were new artists that were WAY better. I wish Marcus To were the regular artist as I dig his stuff way more than Sandoval's.Ewing crams in tons of fun little asides that were part of what made his Loki run shine. (The URL/IRL joke was wonderfully terrible.) He manages to juggle a ton of characters--most of whom I've never heard of--with enough care that they don' [...]

    10. I have to admit: this was a little disappointing. The "tie-up" to the Avengers Standoff story wasn't really much of a tie-in, although the Rick Jones appearances helped somewhat, and the introduction of an American version of Godzilla was just odd. I'm not a big fan of giant robots, or rather giant-sized battle armor, so that didn't help matters any either. A lot of these characters are favorites of mine: Sunspot, Wiccan (or whatever he's calling himself now) and Hulkling; not to mention the new [...]

    11. Some cool fight scenes and, of course, I always love seeing my faves, Billy, Teddy, and Doreen. But not a lot of character development. It felt very scattered. Also what even was that American Kaiju? I mean that alone was a little over the top to just pull out of nowhere but the fact that while it was fighting it constantly chanted USA? That was too extra for me. I do think that my favorite thing about this series is that there's a constant presence of humor in the captions, jokes when describin [...]

    12. Collects New Avengers (2015) issues #7-11I had previously read Issues #8-10 in the "Avengers: Standoff" collection, so only the first and last issue in this collection were new to me. Those issues were OK, but not great. I also thought "Standoff" was just a so-so event, so overall this is a very average (borderline below-average) collection to read. I don't think this collection would be very satisfying to read if you didn't read the other "Standoff" issues that connect to it. There is a larger [...]

    13. 2.5 starsI mostly got into this Avengers Idea Mechanics title for Squirrel Girl, but really enjoyed the tone and plot development of the first volume. Unfortunately, SG and the main supervillain (evil alt. dimension Reed Richards) are barely in the book at all, and these issues seem to require knowledge of some bullshit event happening elsewhere or something. Instead we get a long fight between the U.S. Army's very own patriotic Godzilla and a giant robot piloted by some of the Avengers science [...]

    14. Still my favorite of the All New MU's Avenger's titles. Everything gets more complicated this volume by placing Sunspot and co. in direct conflict with S.H.I.E.L.D. Like the X-books at the first and best moments of the Marvel Now "revitalization" from the few years before Secret Wars these various Avengers books seem to be legitimately taking different positions on various "issues" in the new MU and presenting different, even conflicting perspectives on similar plot lines etc. I'm hoping this la [...]

    15. This was an improvement on Vol.1. It felt like Al Ewing was becoming more comfortable with the large cast of characters and their different personalities. There was still just too many plot threads though and none of them felt particularly well developed. It gave the whole collection a disjointed/messy feeling. Stories stopped and started on a dime with very little time in between to explore what was actually happening and how that affected the team. The art was MUCH better for most of this volu [...]

    16. The art is horrible. Had to say that right up front. It really colors my opinion. Al Ewing might be telling a pretty decent story, aside from the very weak Standoff cross-over entries, but it's too hard to tell when the pictures are so ugly. Billy and Teddy are two of my favorite Marvel characters so I'm going to follow them where ever it is that they go. Just wish this book would shake a leg and shape up a bit. It's a shaggy dog at the moment. Needs some grooming.

    17. I like the idea of Sunspot being in charge of A.I.M. I just don't know if Ewing pulls it off as well as Hickman did. It doesn't take long for A.I.M. to tick off the U.S. government and they and S.H.I.E.L.D. come after them. The team splinters part way through the book and then reforms as just a normal team at the end of the book while A.I.M. goes off to do it's own thing.

    18. I'm not sold on SHIELD being evil and AIM being good. And the whole terrigen virus plotline is annoying. And giant robots versus giant dinosaurs is whatever. But still this was a light readable enjoyable volume for the most part. And with hints of character development. Perhaps the sequel will be better.

    19. Just a little too much happening in this volume. Crosses, double-crosses, maybe even triple-crosses. Al Ewing seems to be struggling to find the right balance between humor and plot that he did so well Loki. Maybe there are just too many characters here.

    20. This was ostensibly part of a line-wide crossover, but I couldn't tell, and that's pretty awesome. At no point did I feel like I was missing something, and just got to enjoy this kooky version of the Avengers as they take on SHIELD, go Secret, and then go All-New. Fun!

    21. This is a definite improvement on the last volume but it's also still Ewing's weakest Marvel book. Still, American Kaiju totally ruled.

    22. To be honest the only thing I liked about this was Teddy, Billy and Squirrel Girl, Wiccan's Kooky Quartet, who are all on the cover but feature for very little time.

    23. A mash-up of the pre-Secret Wars Avengers and Young Avengers.The American Kaiju story makes a lot more sense hereperated from Standoff!
