"End Times: Part 2"

We left the New Avengers off with someone possessed and Doctor Strange nervous about what was going on. It seems he had an incredibly good reason for being concerned. Daniel Drumm (aka Brother Voodoo) is trying to get revenge for his brother's death and is doing it by killing anyone linked to the spiritual world. Of course this will directly influence Doctor Strange and causes the New Avengers to be caught in the middle.
There just seems to be a lot of cases of being at the wrong place at the wrong time for our heroes during this issue and it obviously stinks. Doctor Strange is trying to get away from everyone and take care of things himself. By the end of the issue it seems that he is in over his head.

I am not certain how to feel about this "End Times" arc. I am not liking it as much as The Avengers version of it but am definitely interested. I am still trying to figure out why after Luke Cage supposedly left the New Avengers he is still hanging out in the mansion with his wife and kid.

Oh well, this arc is coming to a close and we will see a new start for this team soon and maybe even new members for the team. They are teasing that someone is going to die...I wonder who? That alone is enough to keep me reading.

  1. This whole arc is strange - Maria Hill is acting like a maniac .. is she the one posessed in the end?? But.. whatever

    I was shocked to see Victoria Hand die..she was such an important character in the whole DARK REIGN arc and so her transformation to the "good side" cold have been quite interesting.. but it never really paid off and she was kind-of wasted in the last couple of NEW AVENGERS storylines..

    but since this is all magical stuff i suppose she could easily come back to life :/

    And yeah - it confused the hell out of me that Luke and his family were still around in this issue.. i thought they already left?!

    This arc seems to be a mess right now - but lats wait and see how it ends
