New Avengers #47 Review

Written by Brian Bendis

This issue actually had more impact than the actual ending of Secret Invasion. While I feel Bendis isn't up for the huge super hero events, these low key, street level stories are right up his alley. Add in his favourite pet characters, Luke Cage and Jessica Jones, and it's sure to be a great read.

The crux of this story revolves around a flashback to Luke Cage telling he and Jessica's baby the story of when he first knew he was in love with Jessica and it ends up being a touching story about how Jessica helps Luke track down his father.

The catch is that Luke's father isn't missing so much as he is avoiding his son, who was at one point accused of murder and spent time in jail before going on to become a super hero, which his father isn't so fond of either.

In the end, nothing really comes of the story in regards to Luke's father, who's been traumatized by the loss of his first born son and the various allegations against Luke and his current lifestyle and doesn't want anything to do with his son anymore, but the developing relationship, at the time, between Luke and Jessica was great to see and the conclusion leads to a scene about how Luke doens't want to mess things up for his child.

As we all know by now, the ending to Secret Invasion saw Luke and Jessica's child kidnapped by the Skrull Jarvis and this issue ends on a similar, yet more powerful, in context, scene that made this one of my favourite SI tie-ins.

Verdict - Must Read. I'm not sure where they'll be going in relation to the missing baby story, but I really enjoyed this issue and recommend it to any fan of these characters or Bendis' more street level stories.
