Welcome to the Oblivion Bar where the first round is on me and the pretzels are free! Be warned: like the pickled eggs at the bar, this issue is going to get SPOILED rotten.

This issue was mainly a wrap-up issue of the big event No Surrender. If you’ve read the entire thing to this point, the big bads Challenger and Grandmaster used earth as a playground for their game to see who would become the new Grandmaster and who would be banished. They had their teams and froze our A-listers so they couldn’t help but even our B and C squad rose to the occasion and were able to triumph.

In this issue, we mainly see the direction our Avengers will be heading. The mansion is being rebuilt, certain members are leaving to go on their own, some names of organizations are changing, and new teams will be rebuilt, along with a new statue out in front of Avengers mansion portraying all types of heroes. Honestly, I’d go over the details of some of the changes but I have no doubt the beginning of each issue in Fresh Start will do just that.

If you like what you heard, love talking all types of comics, and are interested in joining a comic chat group, hit me up at or @dispatchdcu on twitter. Catch you all later! Peace

Bits and Pieces:

This issue is hard to grade is an issue of information and direction of the book. The arc as a whole was fun and exciting. This issue was again mainly just informative. It wasn’t bad but it certainly wasn’t as good as the rest. Personally, it was nice but it wasn’t needed. If you have read them all to this point, then read this one to wrap it up. Otherwise, just wait until next week when Jason Aaron starts his run! But I highly recommend the trade!
