Siege – New Avengers (Softcover)

Siege – New Avengers (Hardcover)

Completing an impressive 64 issue run that started back in 2005, writer Brian Michael Bendis (New Avengers – Breakout, New Avengers – Sentry) wraps up first monthly ongoing comic-book series of New Avengers for Marvel Comics in 2010 with "Siege – New Avengers" tit-in storyline, which continued from his previous arc "Powerloss".

Bendis was assisted by artists Bryan Hitch (Age of Ultron, The Ultimates), Marko Djurdjevic, Mike Mayhew, Mike McKone and Stuart Immonen (All-New Captain America – Hydra Ascendant, Ultimate Fantastic Four – Doom) on the story. Immonen worked on cover arts for all four numbered issues involved from regular series run.

"Dark Reign" has been unusual for all heroes to deal with a maniac like Norman Osborn being in charge of everything but he ultimately screws up publicly during "Siege" crossover event, giving Cap and his friends enough reason to strike back at him.

Though Steve Rogers is back in action, his old pal James Bucky Barnes still remains Captain America. It is not shown what really happened of The Sentry when he went full rogue and became a massive threat for everyone after losing total control but a happy conclusion was drawn for all members of New Avengers in finale issue.

New Avengers – Powerloss | Comics

Distrust among The Hood and his gang spreads after his recent fall but they seek out a new leader to defeat New Avengers.

Trying to set a trap for Norman Osborn and his "Dark Avengers", members of New Avengers have found themselves ambushed by The Hood and his gang of criminals. Despite being outnumbered and their power dampener being trashed, they managed to get out alive and it caused a friction among Hood's gang regarding his leadership skills.

When Madame Masque was trying to point out their lack of discipline and short-sightedness, Wrecker corrected her by saying that they are all in for a "gig". He also raised question about how Hood knew that Avengers were here even though it seemed that they were clearly expecting someone else, which creates a rift between them.

Parker Robbins and Wrecker go back and forth about how they both were doing fine than the other. As they all leave, Chemistro found the wrecked power disruptor left behind and took it to Dr. Jonas Harrow. Later at their secret hideout, Hood didn't show up for a payday but then Harrow presents his device and plan to them all.

Bucky Barnes returns to his place to find it as a mess but never got to raise it during their meeting where Clint Barton suggests that they straight out kill Osborn. Spider-Man strongly opposes this idea, which is against his own values as well as Avengers' but Luke Cage proposes that they at least have a discussion about the situation.

New Avengers – Powerloss | Comics

Argument between Clint and Spidey started to get heated on Osborn and then Bucky gets a message for an emergency at Times Square. They see Chemistro randomly wrecking havoc on streets and approach him only to fall one by one. Mockingbird was only one left standing and she beat him with shield and gun of Captain America.

Then all four of Wrecking Crew showed up next, which was too much for her even with some help from Ronin and Webhead. As Wrecker was poking Cage, he and his pals are blown away by arrival of Sentry but he too, fell soon to the dampener. Osborn and his cronies join shortly and have a talk with Harrow, who shows up on his armor HUD.

He simply wants to renegotiate a deal with Norman that he previously had with Robbins and he wishes to present him the device in return. To show worth of his word, Harrow took down his Dark Avengers before disassembling Osborn's armor. When a deal is finally made between them, his armor is restored and his team gets back on their feet.

Just when he was about to ask Venom to eat Spider-Man, incoming hit from a Quinjet scattered them all. Bobbi Morse came to rescue her friends out of this mess right on time but Daken claims to have their scent. Luke Cage was not feeling very well and is taken to Night Nurse, who informed them that he is having a cardiac arrest.

Since they couldn't get through his unbreakable skin and needed the disruptor for that, Cage walked over to his enemies and collapsed. He is taken into custody and taken care of while rest of his friends retreated. Back at their secret hideout, his wife Jessica Jones wants to go in for a rescue but Ms. Marvel stops her telling they have a plan.

Earlier, The Hood went after Doctor Strange to take his Eye of Agamotto and ended up fighting New Avengers, which left him badly burnt and without power. Loki came to his aid in hospital offering him another chance and he promptly accepted. He and Madame Masque are led to Cuba in search for a power greater than he ever wielded.

New Avengers – Powerloss (Hardcover)

For twelfth storyline of New Avengers monthly comic-book series, Marvel Comics have assigned writer Brian Michael Bendis (House of M, Secret War) and artist Stuart Immonen (All-New Captain America – Hydra Ascendant, Ultimate Fantastic Four – Doom) to work on issues #55-60 from ongoing titular publication back in 2010.

Current narrative of "Powerloss" is set during "Dark Reign" crossover event and takes place almost simultaneously alongside previous story "Search for the Sorcerer Supreme". With a power struggle already tearing up criminal underworld of New York, villains have gotten their hands on a device that can strip anyone of their power.

End of Luke Cage?

After Parker Robbins briefly went away from scene, everyone in his gang has thought him to be gone for good and sided with Dr. Harrow. He arranges and demonstrates a show of what he can offer to Norman Osborn before handing him that device. The Avengers were caught in a trap without even knowing but then made it out eventually.

Only one greatly affected by that machine was Luke Cage, who needed a heart surgery and had to go back to Osborn. Though they treated Cage, a transmitter was put in his heart to make sure he follows suit when he fully recovers. More of this madness will continue to and even come to an end on upcoming "Siege" tie-in story up next.

New Avengers – Search for the Sorcerer Supreme | Comics

Although Doctor Strange is back, a search for his new successor begins with The Hood seeking his powers.

Now that Tony Stark is not Director of S.H.I.E.L.D. anymore, New Avengers are on the run because Norman Osborn is in charge of everything. Aside from running a new task force H.A.M.M.E.R., he has assembled his own version of "Earth's Mightiest Heroes" with their twisted and villainous counterparts as Dark Avengers.

Some heroes went underground and many like Clint Barton AKA Ronin became vocal about their opinion on Osborn in public. When his team tries to choose a leader, Barton is elected and he picks Ms. Marvel as his second-in-command. They ask for Spider-Man to share his real identity with them and he reluctantly does so after all.

Turns out, Jessica Jones was a classmate of Peter from high school and had a crush on him, which irks her husband Luke Cage a little. Before they proceed to plan ahead to take Osborn down, Doctor Strange arrives there to seek help. He barely survived an encounter with The Hood, who is currently after his Eye of Agamotto.

It appears that Stephen Strange is no longer a Sorcerer Supreme of Earth dimension as he used dark arts to save his friends earlier. He has been looking for a new contender for his former title ever since and met Young Avengers member Wiccan in New Jersey but their conversation is interrupted midway when he sees Parker Robbins outside.

Strange told Billy Kaplan to run and attempts to face Hood alone but not only did he fail to reason with Robbins, he soon realized that his enemy has grown more powerful than he is now. Instead of running, Wiccan came out helping with his powers, allowing them both to escape from there and he came here to gather strength.

New Avengers insists on helping Strange as they were after Robbins, who has ties to Osborn. Meanwhile, Hood goes to Dormammu seeking help to ease his pain and meets Madame Masque. Not knowing what he's been up to, she suggests that they go look for Doctor Strange to get help and removes her mask before kissing him.

They all head to New Orleans trying to find the new rightful owner for Eye of Agamotto in a Quinjet that Carol "borrrowed" when she left Mighty Avengers. What Strange is mostly concerned about is that even people like Doctor Doom or Hood could be a candidate for being next Sorcerer Supreme and that would be disastrous.

On their way, the Eye suddenly activates by itself and starts display all of its possible holders before getting disappeared, most likely to its new owner. They are hit by a missile by Madame Masque, prompting Spidey and Wolverine to go after her. Logan ran into heavy fire and Spider-Woman engaged her until Captain America took her out.

In his apartment, Daimon Hellstrom was arguing with his ex-wife Patsy Walker AKA Hellcat over phone. The Hood comes at him guns blazing thinking he has what he is looking for but was unable to even land a scratch on him. They both get a glimpse of the Eye before it gets vanished again and Hood is cast outside from his house.

Their fight gets ugly pretty quickly and caught attention of The Avengers, who came in offering aid to Hellstrom. As Cage and Doc Strange try their best to contain the fiery fury of an unhinged Parker Robbins, who has taken a larger demonic form, Jericho Drumm AKA Brother Voodoo shows up wearing the Eye of Agamotto to help.

Continuing his run on eleventh New Avengers storyline "Search for the Sorcerer Supreme", writer Brian Michael Bendis (House of M, Secret War) returns once again to rally up the heroes to face a "Dark Reign" with a revised team lineup and status quo for Marvel Comics in 2009 that would spread across various other mini-series.

Bendis was joined by artists Antonio Fabela, Justin Ponsor, Billy Tan (Thor – Latverian Prometheus, Uncanny X-Men – End of Greys), Chris Bachalo (Dark Reign – The Sinister Spider-Man, X-Men – Age of Apocalypse) and Matt Banning in telling his story within issues #51-54 from fist volume of monthly ongoing comic-book series.

Even though Cage has been acting as a leader for some time, he steps down and Bucky Barnes simply didn't have old-school Avengers experience. In a not so surprising manner, Clint Barton gets elected as current leader of New Avengers.

The Hood, one of Osborn's allies and a herald of Dormammu becomes a major pain for heroes to deal with. Although he went after Strange to steal his Eye of Agamotto by force, Parker eventually ended up being badly burnt in hospital. A new Sorcerer Supreme is chosen and more bad news is heading for them in next story "Powerloss".

New Avengers – Power | Comics

Skrull Invasion is over but how would New Avengers roster will reassemble and survive an impending Dark Reign.

During crisis of "Secret Invasion", all superheroes and villains came together fighting the alien Skrulls but it was Norman Osborn, leader of Thunderbolts who effectively ended the conflict by taking a kill-shot on Queen Veranke. He becomes a beloved media hero and Tony Stark is overthrown from his position as Director of S.H.I.E.L.D.

President of the United States has tasked Osborn to assemble a new peace-keeping task force and handed Avengers Initiative over. He secretly assembled a number of divisive individuals like Emma Frost, Doctor Doom, Loki, Prince Namor and The Hood for a meeting to form a Cabal that would work to ensure all of its members' interests.

As part of his new schemes, Norman attempts to fully shut down current Thunderbolts program, which caused Swordsman to go into frenzy and he threatened to publicly expose Osborn only to get impaled by his own sword in return.

A new Captain America and Thor joined all assembled heroes when they were trying to defend capital city from Skrulls. Cap instructed New Avengers members to gather at his safe-house at Bronx, where Iron Fist, Mockingbird, Ronin, Spider-Man and Wolverine showed up next day followed by a recently resurfaced original Spider-Woman.

Despite Clint started acting pretty antagonistic towards her, Logan vouched for her since she was replaced by Skrulls and had nothing to do anything with the invasion. Jessica Jones returns with Luke Cage and Ms. Marvel, desperately seeking for Edwin Jarvis imposter, to whom she gave her child before joining her husband at Central Park.

They immediately head out to find the baby and goes directly to Baxter Building, looking for help from Fantastic Four. Though they were in a mess already, Sue Storm rallied up her family up to look for Danielle. After searching into bases of A.I.M., HYDRA and even underground, they found a Skrull into a bar full of S.H.I.E.L.D. agents.

Before they could even properly interrogate, the disguised alien tried to run and is shot into head by a disgruntled S.H.I.E.L.D. agent. Seeing no other way to get back his child, Cage asks Osborn to help him find where Skrull-Jarvis is hiding. Seeing him desperate to do anything at this point, Norman gladly agrees to make a deal.

They fly to maximum security prison Raft shortly afterwards to see Skrull prisoners captured for interrogation. Osborn asks one of them whether he knows where Skrull-Jarvis currently is but they choose not to respond. He tells Venom to eat one of them and he happily obliges, to which the surviving one cracks and gives them a location.

Cage walks into their meeting place and Jarvis pretended walks in carrying his daughter Danielle a while later. He tried to bargain release for his comrades but then gives her up anyway and gets shot in the head by Bullseye right away. Cage family is reunited at Avengers Tower and Luke tells Jessica that he gets a pass for life off her wifely stuff.

However, he didn't intend to keep his part of the deal to Osborn and took out both Gargan and Lester with Wrecker's magical crowbar before jumping out of window. Back at their hideout, New Avengers witness Norman Osborn to publicly announce his new "Dark Avengers" team, assembled with their twisted, villainous counterparts.
