The Superhero Civil War has ended and the United States Government's law of superhumans registration still stands. Since the world still needs heroes and more particularly Avengers, Tony Stark decides to try something different. Instead of letting fate decide who will be this world's Avengers, he puts Carol Danvers (Ms. Marvel) in charge and together the two put a team together that will be the Avengers. They decided on Simon Williams (Wonder Man), Janet Van Dyne (The Wasp), Natasha Romanoff (Black Widow) Robert Reynolds (The Sentry), and the Greek God of War Ares. Before the team could really get together and actually see what this team can do, the weather all over the world was wonky and Mole Man was causing all sorts of destruction in New York. The X-Men aren't available and neither were the Fantastic Four. So, well, Avengers Assemble.
Good news is that the Mole Man and his moloids may be a threat to regular people, but in the grand scheme of super villains, the moloids are D-list at best. Especially when you have the powerhouse team that was put together. So the Avengers are making short work of the Mole Man's creatures when the Mole Man himself pops up and blames Tony Stark and all of humanity for the weather and what it has done to his underground home. Before Iron Man could explain that he wasn't responsible for the bad weather (even though it kinda was his fault), Iron Man is literally twisted inside out and turns into a silver woman (As far weird things go, this is probably the weirdest thing that happens to Stark). Not only was Tony Stark now a Woman (just go with it), but he was no longer in control of the body or the armor. To make matters worse, this wasn't just a woman. This was Ultron in a new form and in control of Iron Man and everything he controlled.
This wasn't the greatest of books, but what it was a fun book. The banter between the teammates was great. Especially with Ares. Ares was new to being a superhero and working on a team of equals (he wasn't much of a team player on Olympus with the gods). So this resulted in a lot of "I AM THE GOD OF WAR AND YOU ARE ALL IDIOTS". Actually, his exact words were "Idiot mortals". The banter in their heads was equally as funny as the things they said out loud.. They all had something to say in their thoughts about the situation and the people they were teamed with. Lastly, there is the random things that Frank Cho drew in the background of the issues and the covers. All of this combined with a funny story make this a good book to pick up. As an added bonus, since it's an older series, you might be able to find it cheap on Amazon.com, comixology, or at your local comic book store.
