CBR Review: Avengers #21

I recently reviewed Avengers #21 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "Superheroes don’t seem to deal with surprises too well. It’s not uncommon for the heroes, early in the story, to be ambushed by the villains and react poorly, unable to cope with the shock of the bad guy jumping out and yelling 'Gotcha!' Only when the heroes have been beaten down and given time to think and to plan, that they manage to defeat the villain. The Avengers vs. Norman Osborn (the rematch!) isn’t much different. For the premier superhero team on the planet, they’re taken off the board fairly easily. It may be predictable in the structure of the story, but Brian Michael Bendis and Renato Guedes still entertain as the heroes fall one by one in this issue."
