Plain and simple, I loved this book. It felt effortless. It felt natural. And it was good.
The premise. The teen members of the Avengers quit the team after the whole Civil War II thing. Clearly it's a generational thing where they don't see eye to eye with the adult Avengers. Ms. Marvel calls together Nova and Spider-Man, who think she's going to try to talk them back into joining the team. Instead she shocks them by telling them she quit and wants to do something different. And so is born a new group of Champions. They want to fight social injustices. They want to change the world, as the title of this volume announces. They're very idealistic.
The three former Avengers begin to assemble a team. They get the current Hulk and Viv Vision. And so is born a team. Shortly after, Cyclops hunts them down because he wants in. This book has a very Teen Titans feel to me. Teen Titans way way way way way back in the day. A group of kids getting together to do what they feel is right.
The stories are based on a lot of stuff that's in the news today. And it's highly enjoyable.
