Over the holiday I read the 400 page hardback compilation of the Dark Avengers series written by Brian Bendis. If you are not familiar with the series, the storyline places the Avengers underground after the Skrull invasion. Harry Osborne, aka the Green Goblin, had the good fortune of being a key figure in repelling the Skrull threat. Because of this Osborne has been assigned to be the head of S.H.E.I.L.D. which he renames H.A.M.M.E.R. He takes the organization from a defensive to offensive position. He creates his own version of the Avengers placing himself as Iron Patriot the leader of the team. The rest of the team includes a team of villains posing as heroes: “Spider-man”, “Hawkeye”, “Ms. Marvel”, “Wolverine”, Captain Marvel, Ares, and Sentry. The quotes are used because these are not the original key players of these heroes’ identities as Avengers.
