The Rundown: Robbie Reyes has had enough of being the Ghost Rider and his attempt to remove the demon from his body might kill him.
Robbie is finding it harder and harder to control the Spirit of Vengeance inside him. Something that becomes evident when taking his little brother to school becomes a life and death struggle. He takes his problem to the team and both Black Panther and Blade have their own unique ideas on what should be done about the Rider’s problem.
For good or ill, T’Challa called in some unorthodox help in the form of Daiman Hellstrom, the Son of Satan. He believes that there is a way to remove the Rider from Robbie through an exorcism, but he entrusts a powerful weapon to Blade in case everything goes south.
At the same time, Iron Man, Thor and Okoye find themselves investigating a long hidden cave that has held a secret connected to Tony Stark.
The Story: This issue signals the beginning of an interesting new story for the Avengers. Taking a turn from the celestials and otherworldly war storylines to the supernatural is a natural and welcome progression for both the characters and the team itself. Jason Aaron is exploring some of the dark sides of the Marvel universe and using the Avengers to do so adds a sense of discovery for the reader as they see characters that normally don’t deal with the supernatural become immersed in this new mystery.
The Art: Stefano Caselli’s art is really good. The characters look great, but Caselli does some amazingly detailed work on depicting the Hell Charger.
