    One thought on “New Avengers: A.I.M., Volume 1: Everything is New”

    1. Al Ewing tanks another Marvel title with New Avengers! I don’t read everything but I do read a fair amount of Marvel’s output and I don’t remember when Advanced Idea Mechanics (AIM – the beekeeper villains) suddenly became the good guys, but that’s what they are in New Avengers… for reasons, I assume?! I guess Everything Is New, like the subtitle says (an upbeat reversal of Jonathan Hickman’s first New Avengers book, Everything Dies, probably signalling renewal after Secret Wars - [...]

    2. Al Ewing is fast becoming one of my favourite comicbook writers. I love the concept of his New Avengers. Sunspot has bought out AIM, the old villainous science terrorist group Advanced Ideas Mechanics, and repurposed it to become an Avengers offshoot focusing on scientific research called Avengers Ideas Mechanics. The group also has a field team lead by Songbird, which has a line-up I absolutely LOVE.This first arc has them going up against the evil alternate reality version of Reed Richards fro [...]

    3. Roberto da Costa aka Sunspot bought A.I.M. altering their moniker to Avengers Idea Mechanics. From Avengers Island the new A.I.M. sends out the New Avengers to help defend the world.Everything is New was an OK introductory story. I missed Sunspot buying A.I.M. and that transition so perhaps I'll have to swing back around to read that, but otherwise it's an introduction to the New Avengers. New Avengers is a fitting name because they compiled quite the new team with a single experienced Avenger i [...]

    4. I'm starting to think Al Ewing isn't my style of writing. So Ultimates was once a universe. Then poof, it didn't sell enough, and we had to get rid of it. New Avengers is throwing together the Avengers no one really remembers or loves. Some are young avengers, some are actual avengers, and then you bring in the villain from Ultimates universe later on. Evil Reed Richards. Sounds like a homerun right? Nope. Good: Some of the banter is funny. I do like a lot of the Young Avengers and other charact [...]

    5. So, after finishing Ewing's brilliant Loki series, I decided to give his current Marvel titles a try.Where Agent of Asgard was a sequel of sorts to Kieron Gillen's Journey Into Mystery and Young Avengers focusing on Loki, New Avengers Volume 1 is a sequel of sorts to Young Avengers focusing on Billy Kaplan and Teddy Altman, or Wiccan and Hulkling, respectively. And, where Loki was a huge success, New Avengers is as huge a failure.First of all, the setup is kind of ridiculous and is left complete [...]

    6. This just worked for me, on nearly every level. The cast is full of characters I love: Squirrel Girl, Hulkling, Wiccan, Hawkeye (version Clint). I really like the rest of the team, and the idea is kind of fun: AIM has been bought out and turned into an Avengers adjunct. There's all these multi-billionaire heroes in the Marvel universe, and it was about time one of them actually threw his money at a problem to solve it. The story partly focuses on Billy and Teddy, which I simply couldn't be happi [...]

    7. the art in this was horrifying i almost had nightmares with what they did to billy that brief interlude of phil notos art was lifesaving

    8. I already knew I liked Ewing and was curious what he'd do with YA team members. The first couple issues were weird but the story evened out to a solid finish. Good humor, Billy and Teddy are adorable, has some moving moments on Billy's depression. Even though the new AIM and current team lineup is odd I'm willing to roll with it.But the art really, really didn't work for me. At all. While the bright colors and energy are good, the sketchy lines and exaggerated proportions don't work well with th [...]

    9. I'm mostly here for Squirrel Girl, but I also loved Billy and Teddy in the Gillon/McKelvie run of Young Avengers, so this seemed like a good book to pick up after The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl, Vol. 3: Squirrel, You Really Got Me Now.I wasn't familiar with Songbird, Roberto Da Costa, White Tiger, or Power Man, and none of them really made much of an impression, with the exception of Power Man aka Vic calling out Wiccan on his appropriative name (FINALLY!).It was fun seeing an evil Alternate Reed [...]

    10. Character development: 5 starsPlot: 1 star.Art: 2.5 stars.Saving grace: Songbird, Hawkeye, Hulkling and I guess Squirrel Girl.There's not much to say for a reason.

    11. Una nueva constelación de Vengadores con uno de mis personajes favoritos Doreen Green también conocida como Squirrel Girl. Puede que esta nueva generación sea lo que hace falta en un mundo lleno de cambio.

    12. I knocked it up a star because of the ending. I'm Billy and Teddy trash, and the scene with them married in the future made me really happy. Both story arcs were very weak, the second was more enjoyable because I liked the focus on Hulkling and Wiccan, but other then that not a very well written or compelling comic. And the art is not great. The body proportions are incredibly strange- basically straight out of a 90's comic, which is NOT my thing.

    13. I love the characters. I've always loved Wiccan and Hulkling, and I found AIM to be interesting (i'll have to read their other comics later). But the storyline? Oh no.

    14. It kills me to have to give a book with such diverse characters and interesting art only two and a half stars.

    15. So, Al Ewing's New Avengers? It's a bit of a mishmash, but in a good way, as Ewing manages to combine together plot threads from a bunch of different pre-SW titles.At the heart of it is Roberto DaCosta and his purchase of AIM during Time Runs Out. It's good to see that continuing, and also to see the distrust it's caused. Ewing wisely makes this the heart of the comic.Next up are Hulkling and Wiccan from the various Young Avengers series, and their plots are at the core of this volume, continuin [...]

    16. This book is not a start for new readers who are trying to get into the series. Instead, they are left vague and confused because they are introduced to characters that are poorly introduced. In each beginning issues, they are only labeled with captions that are very ambiguous (how is White Tiger an ex-girlfriend to Powerman? More importantly, how did they break up?). These questions are left unanswered. Even more, I do not know these characters at all. I only know two characters, Hulking and Wi [...]

    17. Ewing's Mighty Avengers was originally marketed as a street-level book, but Al, being Al, soon found ways to twist that into all manner of cosmic craziness. Here, a couple of that book's cast (White Tiger and Power Man) join up with an assortment of other heroes (from Squirrel Girl to Hawkeye) for a series that's all about crazy science and weird extradimensional business from the get-go. Grant Morrison's nineties work is clearly a big influence, from Kyle Rayner's confrontation with Mageddon to [...]

    18. Certainly not the best Avengers story, but also far from the worst. With personal favorite characters like Sunspot, Wiccan & Hulkling in the mix, this was a title I was going to read, but they way the characters were handled could have really driven me away from the title, Ewing does a good job, although it still doesn't feel very inspired. The dots are getting connected, and the i's are getting dotted and the t's are getting crossed. I just wish it read more like history-in-the-making and l [...]

    19. The art isn't great in this one. (There are a few pages near the end that look decent - they weren't drawn by Sandoval I guess.) The story is a bit all over the place but I enjoy the dynamics of some of the team members a lot (mainly wiccan and hulkling. and Hawkeye.) Squirrel Girl is also weirdly entertaining There is definitely room for improvement but ultimately I enjoyed New Avengers: A.I.M.

    20. I fully recognize that the main reason I enjoyed this so much is because the second arc features my OTP (Wiccan/Demiurge and Hulkling) rather heavily. There’s also a ton of other great characters on the team. Squirrel Girl (and Tippy Toe!), Sunspot, Hawkeye. I don’t know much about White Tiger, the new Power Man (NOT Luke Cage), or Songbird, but I like where they are headed. Admittedly, it seems there’s a lot of characterization that is assumed to included in the packaging. It generally is [...]

    21. Obviously, I'm mainly here because of Billy and Teddy. And Hawkeye, too. But mainly Billy and Teddy. On that front, the book did deliver, which is great! I also really liked some of the dialogues.The art, though, I'm not very fond of. Especially the character design. I don't really like what's been done with Squirrel Girl, for instance. (EDIT to add a note about the cover: I actually thought it was Matt Murdock there, from the Spider-Gwen universe, and it took me a few issues to realise what was [...]

    22. Has a lot of potential, although like most team based comics, a lot of the characters feel like they are just lost on the fringes and don't get to do all that much. Once more you really don't get a sense as to WHY these characters teamed together. Maybe that's addressed elsewhere but it just seems rather odd that no one is bothering to explain why Squirrel Girl is on a legit Avengers team. No disrespect to SG, not at all, but I meane talks to squirrels, and she's on the same team as a reality wa [...]

    23. This is about an off-brand Avengers team with Hawkeye, Squirrel Girl, and a bunch of C-list superheroes I had never heard of. Hawkeye and Squirrel Girl have recently had books that really define their characters, but here they are awfully generic.The other guys don't get any definition either. It's all action and dialogue, with no character development.The dialogue is all rather quippy. It is not funny, so it just makes the plot hard to take seriously.

    24. Lots of flash here: this is a New Avengers without much for me, but I am an old fart.On the plus side, there is Squirrel Girl here; on the down side, her squirrel.Mildly recommended, for younger Avengers fans.

    25. Loved the story line. Great to see Billy and Teddy back in the action. Not fussed on the artwork though, which is why I've rated it 4 instead of 5.

    26. Huh.It has been a few years (*coughs* decades) since I've read a comic with a cast of, well, more characters than I can remember (spoilers) and having the different time streams overlap certainly didn't help with my confusion. Plus, jumping into a comic book series is probably a lot like sitting down to a soap opera (wait, do people still watch soap operas? [googles] Why yes they doe fact that the soaps have a Twitter presence is strangely surprising to mebut I digress) coming into a new univers [...]

    27. I keep reading on the Internet about what a great writer Al Ewing is, but I have seen no evidence of this so far. This is pretty much a complete, chaotic mess.
