NCBD Top of the Pull List - Westcoast Avengers!
I am really biased here. I grew up on West Coast Avengers and reading the Wackos as they called themselves and I was really happy to see Marvel was going to bring back the team. However, often times these likes this disapoint. Lets face it, its hard to get the same feeling from something new as you did while reading it as a kid. Is the spot I am supposed to insert metaphor about Star Wars the Last Jedi? Nah I'll just say yeah that is a thing.
However this West Coast Avengers comics managed to capture parts of the essence of the West Coast Avengers. The more light hearted and the whole "Why the heck are we here?" melodrama plus the laid back style and attitude of the West Coast. There was a lot of fresh aspects to the comic as well with the only returning member of the old team being Clint Barton aka former Hawkeye.
The other characters are America Chavez (The heavy hitter), Gwen Pool (The crazy creative), Kate Bishop (The reluctant leader), and the wild intellect of Kid Omega (The brain). The team may actually be more powerful than the original incarnation of West Coast Avengers but is some how even more unstable.
The story by Kelly Thompson moves at a quick clip, takes time to have a lot of fun with its characters and is an excellent new beginning for the West Coast Avengers.
