New Avengers # 21

This issue starts with the protesters still gathered in front of the Avengers Mansion. Jessica Jones comes out with her baby and Squirrel Girl and tries to talk to the angry mob. She's then attacked by the mob. An angry Squirrel Girl calls in a horde of squirrels to help them escape.

Meanwhile, a battle erupts between the Avengers and Ragnarok. Most of the heroes fight while Spider-man spins webs between buildings to save his teammates from falling. He then tosses Iron Fist at the fake Thor. Iron Fist knocks him out.
The Dark Avengers want to finish off the real Avengers. Osborn explains that they look like heroes after being unjustly attacked while hunting down and killing them will make the real ones look like martyrs. The New Avengers fly off in their jet, after dropping a beaten Ragnarok at the feet of a smiling Osborn. When they reach New York, they find the mansion being seized by the federal government.

New Avengers # 22

The Avengers are wanted for questioning by the government. Cage demands that the authorities let him pass as he owns the mansion. A soldier fires at Cage that sends him flying. Dr Strange teleports them to his Sanctum Sanctorium. Wong informs Cage that his wife left with their daughter. Cage leaves to find his family.

Victoria Hand watches the riot on television and tries to flee her apartment but is stopped by the New Avengers. She is then tossed out of the window and she falls to her death. And is the last appearance of the treacherous liaison. Kidding! She is tossed out of her window but it turns out to be an illusion cast by Dr Strange. She reveals that she is a triple agent working for Captain America. The Avengers decides that Hand will call Osborn.

Osborn talks to Hand and tells her that the Dark Avengers will pick her up. The Dark Avengers receive orders to pick Hand from Manhattan, where they will also find the New Avengers hiding. Gorgon, earlier showed by Madame Hydra a captured Captain America, shares this info with his teammates. This causes Skaar to cry out "Avengers Assemble".


Firstly, no matter how angry you are, how can you throw a bottle at a woman holding a baby? I hope the people come to their senses soon. Spidey did a great job at helping his teammates. Hand's revelation of her allegiance wasn't surprising but Skaar betrayal was. The question as to why would the Son of Hulk work with Osborn is finally answered. And we also get to see how Gorgon's claws work.

As for the art, it's good, especially Will Conard's pages. His style is so similar to Deodato's that  I would not have been able to tell the difference had I not seen it in the X-Men issues.
