|Story/s:||"An Imperfect Union"|
A man with lung cancer goes home to bed from work. A strange green gas creeps through the window, and that when he dies. The next day he is reborn an Inhuman with some sort of power over nature. Someone else in his house is also awakening from the Terrigen chrysalis.
Eight months later the Avengers (Steve Rogers, the Amazing Spider-Man, Rogue, Synapse, the Human Torch, Doctor Voodoo and Deadpool) are fighting an android with the power to absorb meta human powers. They each attack it until Deadpool touches it and it absorbs his cancer and dies.
Spider-Man makes an ultimatum, either Deadpool leaves or he does. Steve Rogers lets Spider-Man go.
At the media conference about the battle things don’t go so well as Rogue has little good experience with the media.
Human Torch tries to convince Spider-Man to stay but to no avail.
Later Steve and Rogue talk privately about the Avengers and Rogue agreeing with Spider-Man, but Steve reassures her he can be trusted to do the job, plus his franchising profits from his public popularity are paying for the team and their hideout.
In private we find out Rogue has serious Terrigen poisoning which she treating (not over successfully with Anti-Terrigen solution).
Doctor VooDoo is having a conversation with a ghost of the theatre they are using as a base when Steve walks in they have a chat and Quicksilvers absence is brought up.
Quick silver on the other hand is having dates at multiple cities around the world, with his last date with Emily (Synapse). Synapse collapses and in a groggy state requests the team meet in Boston.
Boston is filled with strange creatures like giant bees and mutated dogs. The creature appear to have no clear consciousness and are stated as not being ordinary animals. They are being ‘birthed’ from flowers. Meanwhile across town a policeman is attacked by someone calling himself “the Shredded Man”
OK to be honest I went into this comic thinking “Deadpool and Avenger… What the Hell? I’m still not comfortable with it, but I’m more attuned to giving it a chance. I just hope Spider-Man comes back. The team seems really disjointed but to be expected from a new team. Hopefully they’ll gel over time.
