The Rundown: Hulk takes on the Avengers and She-Hulk must make a choice.
Hulk squares off against the Avengers in the streets of New York and Jennifer begins to realize that something is wrong. As the battle rages, Betty arrives to help Hulk and tries to communicate with Jennifer, but being in her She-Hulk form is making things harder. Captain America tries to de-escalate the situation, but things get more tense when Gamma Flight arrives on the scene.
As Jennifer thinks about the Green Door and what it means for both she and Hulk, Steve realizes that Rick Jones is among those infected. The fight only gets more intense as Gamma Flight takes on the Avengers as well and She-Hulk is forced into the position of either fighting alongside her team or choosing to help her cousin. A decision that will have repercussions for everyone in the aftermath of the battle.
The Story: Al Ewing fills this story with great personal and introspective drama. Putting the narrative duties in the hands of She-Hulk was a brilliant choice because it gives the reader a look at both sides of the conflict through the eyes of the most conflicted member of it. There is some awesome dialogue in this issue and the conflict of former friends fighting each other is balanced and engaging.
The Art: Bennett delivers some beautifully detailed action in this issue. Everything is dialed up visually and the art brilliantly captures the emotional tone of the story.
