Höhepunkt der Story ist das Finale, dass auch für Nicht-Avengers-Leser rührend und aufrichtig wirkt. Ich kam zu folgendem Schluss: Bendis wäre ein legenderes Ende für eine legendäre Superheldengruppe gelungen, wenn er die Geschichte statt in 4 in 8 Heften erzählt hätte. Es hätte womöglich auch nicht geschadet, wenn man erste Anzeichen ein halbes Jahr vorher schon in die Geschichten einfliessen lassen hätte. Da Bendis aber keine Geduld bewies, wurde aus einer potentiell monumentalen Geschichte einfach nur eine unterhaltsame Story, und das ist den Avengers nicht würdig, denn wie sagte Tony so schön: Die Avengers waren die "Beatles" unter den Superheldenteams und hätten ein ehrenhaftes Begräbnis verdient. In diesem Sinne meine Bewertung
Allerdings muss ich mich teilweise meinem Vorredner anschließen: Die Geschichte selbst ist gut, die Dekomprimierung ist sehr gut für TPBs geeignet, auch wenn man ohne Vorkenntnis der Avengers Probleme haben wird, die Geschichte richtig zu würdigen. Auf jeden Fall aber ist sie unbedingt nötig, um die Nachfolge-Events aus dem Hause Marvel (pun intended) richtig zu verstehen - insbesondere House of M. Hier beginnt der Neubau des Marvel-Universums.
Trotzdem nur 3 Sterne, da spätere Geschichten, wie House of M und insbesondere dessen Tie-Ins, deutlich besser sind.

A few issues before the Disassembled arc, Avenger Jack of Hearts died saving Cassie Lang, daughter of the current Ant-Man, Scott Lang. So it serves as a huge surprise to the team when a zombified Jack shows up at Avengers Mansion and combusts, taking Lang with him. This is just the first event in a series of incredible attacks on the Avengers, both current and inactive. The Vision crashes a Quinjet and spawns a group of Ultron robots, Tony Stark/Iron Man drunkenly attacks the Latverian ambassador, She-Hulk goes insane, and a Kree armada shows up to attack the team. And when the Avengers find out who is responsible for the attacks, they can hardly believe it. In the Avengers Finale issue, Tony Stark says that he is no longer able to fund the Avengers and the team officially disbands.
While some of the events in the series are very interesting and emotional, many other things are just done for the sake of the writers saying, "look what we can do!". The entire first issue just seems like senseless violence. Another reviewer said that they should have made the arc a few issues longer, and I am inclined to agree. The way they are, they are very unbalanced. One issue is all action while another is all drama. Brian Michael Bendis, who is usually a great writer, kind of dropped the ball here. This is not a bad story, and in fact, it is essential for the future of the Marvel-verse, but it could have been handled better.
Still, it is definitely worth reading, if only to fully understand where the characters are coming from in the upcoming books and events. Also, there are some great features to the book, both due to the issues themself and the fact that it is in trade paperback form. In the finale, the different Avengers discuss their fondest memories of being Avengers, and use actual panels from issues dating back to the 60's. Also, in the back of the trade, there are pages with all 500 covers of The Avengers.
I have mixed feelings about recommending this title. It isn't bad, but it could use some work, and as I've said, it is kind of crucial to what's going on now in the Marvel universe. However, it can be easily explained to you by a friend who has read it (or just go to Wikipedia). I guess I leave the choice to you to do what you want. Each option, buying or not, has its merits.
David Finch's artwork is another matter. It is brooding and beautiful at times, but other times his renditions of certain characters is so far off, as to be unrecognizable as to who they are. Again "Finale", which featured several artists from the Avengers past was my favorite segment as the great George Perez wrapped up the book with his spectacular artwork.
the first 15 pages are strong, but the rest of the book is a chore to read and the ending...ugh. buy it if only for the art and beginning fight sequence.
Personally I wish that each book would have a number so that we can read them all in the correct order. Clearly I should have read this one before The House Of M.
Anyway, it's a great book, the story arc was intriguing (I read the book in one sitting) and the artwork is good. My only complaint is that the text is a little difficult to read on a few of the panes even with the panel view. I read this on my 7"kindle fire HD.
I highly recommend this book.
The plot focuses on a really bad day for the heroes. While Tony Stark (aka Iron Man) embarasses himself at the UN, Avengers Mansion faces a series of assaults, starting with a seemingly zombie version of the Jack of Hearts exploding and killing one of the heroes. After that, the bad things pile on, including appearances from Ultron, an out-of-control She-Hulk and a massive Kree assault.
Why are all the bad things happening at once? This is the mystery, the answer of which is deeply woven into the team's history. By the end, not only will several heroes be dead or injured, the Avengers's very existence will be in doubt.
Of course, in the world of superhero comics, few remain dead and the Avengers are too important a part of the Marvel Universe to truly dissolve, but the joy in this tale isn't diminshed by this fact. What I really liked is that this story encapsulated what the Avengers were all about: not just the team that took on the big-time threats, but something like a family, or like a high school class: they didn't always get along, but they had a bond that went beyond the work they did. This is particularly captured in the last chapter of the story.
This book has gotten more than its fair share of negative reviews, but I think that doesn't the book justice. Avengers Disassembled is a good standalone story arc that embraces Avengers history even as it looks to the future.
