Avengers: The Initiative #15 Review

Written by Dan Slott & Christos Gage
Art by Harvey Tolibao

Avengers: The Initiative #15 was surprisingly disjoint and read like they just mashed a couple of different stories together and slapped the Initiative logo on it.

We pick up on 3D Man from last issue, but that quickly shifts to Crusader after 3D Man, who's Skrull detecting goggles polarity was reversed by Crusader's Freedom Ring (the goggles, they do nothing!), flees Camp Hammond and ends up crashing due to the Starknet Skrull computer virus from Secret Invasion #1.

The goggles, they do nothing!
Once the focus shifts to Crusader, we are given his origin from the Marvel Team-Up book which Robert Kirkman first introduced him in several years back. It's an interesting read, especially since maybe 3 or 4 people probably read the Marvel Team-Up issue he first appeared in.

However, just as we're settling into the Crusader storyline, we get another drastic shift to the Initiative's trip to New York that basically repeats what we already saw in Secret Invasion.

Finally, the art is yet another fill-in for Caselli. I love Caselli's style and the book wouldn't be the same without him, but they need to find a replacement for him that can handle the monthly chores while Caselli handles the occasional 2 or 3 issue arc. The other option is to get better fill-ins that can actually match Caselli's style.

Verdict - Check It.
I liked it, but the story doesn't flow very well and there's some repetition from stories we've already seen.
