I found myself drawn really easily into this set of comics. I liked Wiccan’s character and it was cool to see the way he wanted to find his mother, but also how he tried to defend her to everyone else, despite not knowing everything about her.
I would have liked to see more interactions between Billy and Tommy, especially considering they were virtual doppelgangers and Tommy clearly didn’t really care as much as Billy about what it might mean… or, rather, not necessarily in the same way. I would have liked to see a bit more in the way of conflicts with Billy’s biological parents and his relationship with Wanda.
It was good to see all of the other young Avengers and how they related to the adult Avengers, though I was confused about who Captain America was, since I was fairly sure it wasn’t Steve. It was also good to see Scott Lang, though I was quite saddened by what happened to Cassie and the younger version of the Vision.
I especially liked Billy’s and Teddy’s relationship. I thought they made a sweet couple and Teddy’s protectiveness of Billy was also amusing to read about.
I didn’t really trust Doctor Doom and it was sad to see that Wanda was probably being used by him. I felt that she’d been given a raw deal and that Billy brought up some very good points when he said about how hypocritical both the Avengers and the X-Men were being, no matter how cool it was to see both of the groups interacting with each other.
I thought there were some really good elements of humour and it was especially amusing to see Pietro and Tommy bantering with each other. I also liked being able to see Spider-Man in the Avengers team.
I did feel quite a lot of sympathy for Iron Lad. Although I couldn’t see much of his struggle against his own future, I still had a lot of empathy for him and the struggle he was facing… more so given the final scene in the very last comic.
I was a little lost towards the end of the ninth issue with everything that was going on, but I still found it really good to read. While I wasn’t happy with the way the Avengers and X-Men were acting, I could understand their anger in many ways… and it was good to see Wanda willing to do her best to try and put things right.
