As a fan of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (the movies are what brought me back into comics after decades away), I couldn't help but feel just a bit excited about the new run of Secret Avengers (by Nick Spencer, art by Luke Ross). After all, its sensibilities were going to be grounded in a fusion of the comics world and the movie!verse, and would feature - at least initially - all characters familiar to viewers of The Avengers movie.

There's been grumbling from some comics-only fans, that the insertion of so many movie characters (including Agent Phil Coulson) is just pandering, but I've got to say that anybody who was expecting this series to feel like a coda to the film is going to have a bit of surprise waiting for them.
