Secret Avengers, Vol. 2: Eyes of the Dragon by Mike Deodato,Will Conrad,Ed Brubaker



Scuttlebutt says that SECRET AVENGERS may well be the best Avengers comic book floating around currently, with AVENGERS ACADEMY possibly sliding into second. This leaves Brian Michael Bendis squarely in the back of the bus. Ed Brubaker just has it going on, a master at writing stories redolent with espionage and skullduggery and a noirish atmosphere and asses getting kicked somewhere deep in the shadows. But he's adapted pretty well to all the skulking. SECRET AVENGERS: Vol. 2 EYES OF THE DRAGON collects issues with Brubaker near the top of his game, and Mike Deodato and Will Conrad providing dynamic artwork (oh, the fighty fights look so good!).

Ed Brubaker and Mike Deodato bring you another twisted tale of Marvel's most popular new Avengers team. Collecting: Secret Avengers 6-12. This one is a rare miss from Ed Brubaker. Steve has center stage on this story, and the other Avengers are barely involved. That’s too bad because the chemistry of the misfit team was one of the things I liked most about the first volume.

Collects Secret Avengers Former Captain America Steve Rogers and his covert squad of Secret Avengers must save Shang-Chi and secure the mystical Eyes of the Dragon - along the way reuniting with an old friend from Steve's World War II days, but also finding themselves fighting on the opposite side of one another.

Rogers and the Prince of Orphans explain that they remember Steele as perhaps America's first Super-Soldier, having been through World War I and possibly the American Civil War and was known to be the origin of what gave Rogers and Luke Cage their powers. Until now, no one has seen him since 1943. Beast then brings up an interesting question: didn't Steele use to be one of the good guys? Max Fury approaches Sharon carter in her cells.

Scuttlebutt says that SECRET AVENGERS may well be the best Avengers comic book floating around currently, with AVENGERS ACADEMY possibly sliding into second. This leaves Brian Michael Bendis squarely in the back of the bus. Ed Brubaker just has it going on, a master at writing stories redolent with espionage and skullduggery and a noirish atmosphere and asses getting kicked somewhere deep in the shadows.

I still get a vast chuckle out of the aboveboard, square-as-apple-pie Steve Rogers now orchestrating all these superhero black ops in the name of national security. But he's adapted pretty well to all the skulking. SECRET AVENGERS: Vol. 2 EYES OF THE DRAGON collects issues #6-12, with Brubaker near the top of his game, and Mike Deodato and Will Conrad providing dynamic artwork (oh, the fighty fights look so good!). This particular chapter has got me licking my chops because Brubaker dusts off one of my favorite forgotten Marvel characters: Shang-Chi, Master of Kung Fu. And all the cool stuff that goes with him. If you're a fan of Sax Rohmer and Fu Manchu, that Yellow Peril, that menace from the Far East, then you already know... Things are about to assume that pulpy feel. Gird your loins or whatever for some straight up martial arts madness.

The Eyes of the Dragon are ancient artifacts rumored to confer immortality, but requiring the sacrifice of a blood relative. One night, Shang-Chi is beset by the Celestial Order of the Hai-Dai, a.k.a. Fu Manchu's ninja minions. And so Shang-Chi becomes aware that his evil pops is once again in the land of the living. Shang-Chi and his pops, they're not on cordial terms.

Commander Steve Rogers, Marvel Universe's top cop, gets wind of the Eyes of the Dragon and deploys an old friend to Shang-Chi's side, and it's always neat catching up with John Aman, the legendary Prince of Orphans. Except that this makes me pine all over again for the much lamented IMMORTAL IRON FIST series. Anyway, Shang-Chi soon joins forces with the Secret Avengers for this one mission which I am calling "Operation Boy, Have I Got A Horrible Father."

This is a pretty spiffy arc. I'm still loving the complement of heroes Steve Rogers has recruited for this covert Avengers team, and no one's better suited for instilling a sense of teamwork than he. Frankly, there's no other hero out there as inspirational. Even the Irredeemable Ant-Man, Eric O'Grady, is shedding his sleaze bit by bit. How can anyone not dig a roster peculiarly comprised of characters like Moon Knight, Valkyrie, Beast, and Agent 13, among others? In Brubaker's hands, even the Valkyrie is intriguing. However, I doubt that even Brubaker can rouse interest in the deadly dull War Machine. Sorry, Rhodey.

The Shadow Council is making waves, which is nice if you're a fan of Max Fury and John Steele, but their presence encroaches into that whole Shang-Chi / Fu Manchu pulp adventure flavor, which sucks. At this point, I'd like to mention that Marvel Comics, because of expiring licensing issues, dares not call Shang-Chi's father by his name, Fu Manchu. So Brubaker comes up with another moniker for him: "Zheng Zu," which doesn't quite carry the decades-worth of cachet built into the "Fu Manchu" name.

Anyway, the Shadow Council reveals itself to be the primary mover behind Zheng Zu's halfway resurrection (he's only half alive), and so the central conflict quickly shifts to Steve Rogers versus Director Thorndrake's Shadow Council, or, more specifically, versus John Steele, one of Thorndrake's lieutenants. In case you're not up to speed on John Steele, he's a Golden Age hero whom Brubaker reintroduced in his MARVELS PROJECT mini-series. Steele is touted as the first real super-soldier and is faster and stronger than Rogers, and he's turned to the dark side. You can sense the impending smackdown. Having said that, it's also a nod to Steve Rogers' leadership that, when appropriate, he doesn't hesitate to delegate an asskicking task, even though he's got a vested interest in the chump what deserves them bruises. This gives Valkyrie a chance to shine.

Twelve issues in the bank, and here's Ed Brubaker jumping ship. I like what I've read from the incoming writer, Nick Spencer (MORNING GLORIES, T.H.U.N.D.E.R. AGENTS), but SECRET AVENGERS was Brubaker's baby and he carefully fashioned it into the best Avengers comic out there. Let's hope Nick Spencer keeps up. Meanwhile, this Volume 2 collection of THE SECRET AVENGERS is recommended reading. But mind the roundhouse kicks.

This is different from the normal oversized, BIG stories normally associated with the Avengers titles of the last few years but it still has a major scale feel to it.
I was never a big Shang Chi/Master of Kung Fu fan but you don't need to be to enjoy the story or his role in it.
Gardataur
seemed ill put together unlike the previous story line. It did not match up well. It was not as interesting or as action packed either.
Aedem
They introduce a new character in this book that I think will be hanging around in the Marvel U for quite some time. Definitely pick this book up.

The only reason I bought this book was that I had read the prequel to this book and it was very good. And though this volume is not as good as it’s predecessor, still it’s a decent time-pass.
This book should be called “Steve Rogers and Friends” as it’s mostly focused on Rogers rather than other Avengers.
This book felt more like a secret-agent/ black ops type action-based book rather than an avengers book. Also, The Avengers team seemed incomplete. Most of it’s members don’t have any superpowers.Moreover, they don’t have any member who’s very strong physically and also no one who’s an expert in magic.
One thing I liked about the book, other than the story, are two “temporary” avengers namely Shang-Chi and the Prince of Orphans. The latter I think is a new character introduced here for first time (I’ve never read or heard about him on any other Avenger/Marvel books) and he has quite an appeal. I’ve always liked Shang-Chi and it was good to see him “back” at least for some issues. He is actually a crucial part of the main story. The way Deodato has drawn him, he resembles Bruce Lee a lot! I don’t mind it at all as I’ve always admired and respected Bruce Lee.
One complaint is that the characterization is badly lacking. You don’t get any emotional connect with any of the characters. All the characters seem artificial. Also, none of the character interactions are entertaining or worth remembering.
The artwork, mostly by Mike Deodato and two issues by Will Conrad, is decent and suits the dark tone of the book nicely.
The best part is of course the story. Though, it’s nothing new that I have never read before in comics, still it was quite entertaining and there were one or two twists that I never saw coming. This book is best enjoyed by Avengers fans and fans of Steve Rogers/Captain America. And even if you don’t read this book, don’t worry; you’re not missing anything extraordinary.

I feel like I should preface this review by noting that I've really enjoyed Ed Brubaker's run on Captain America. Really, really, really. So I was thrilled when I discovered that he was writing a book about Steve Rogers, black ops spy. And then I read the first book and was not impressed. At all.

Still, I thought, perhaps book two will be better. After all, a book that's teased with kung fu has to be better than a book that takes place on Mars, right? And it was better, it was, but not by enough to make me want to pick up any more books in the Secret Avengers' series.

So. This book contains issues 6-12 of Secret Avengers. In it, you will find: ninjas (...which do make any book better, it's true), a blast from Steve Rogers' past, rogue LMD's, the Shadow Council, kidnapping, murder, and the rise of an ancient evil.
