Reader Rating: Above Average; Thunderbolts Interest: Medium
Summary: When the Vision vanishes from the compound, the WCA breaks into a government stronghold to rescue him. The Avengers are Hawkeye, Henry Pym, the Scarlet Witch, Tigra, the Wasp, and Wonder Man
Continuity: Hawkeye faces Mockingbird for the first time since their separation. He quits the team after U.S. Agent is assigned by the government to take over as leader.
Comments: John Byrneís first effort as WCA writer/artist presents an ingenious plot twist, beautifully illustrated. Mike Machlanís rich inks are well-suited to Byrneís elegant lines. The story of the Visionís rebirth is so clever and it is drawn so well that it is easy to overlook that very little actually happens. Most of the story is exposition on events that have already taken place.
