In this Issue:
B.R.O.D.O.K. has unleashed a horde of giant monster women to wreak havoc on Los Angeles after Kate and Clint found out he’s responsible for Tigra being a 200-foot tall giant. The team comes together to keep the damage down to a minimum and find a way to undo whatever mind-control B.R.O.D.O.K. implanted in her. A B-plot to this Quentin Quire navigating his feelings towards Gwenpool, which is left expectedly unresolved by the final page.
West Coast Avengers #3 is decidedly the best of the series at the moment. It very much feels like the midpoint to a story arc. Plot points are getting resolved in narratively satisfying ways as well as leaving some for future issues to handle. I appreciated that this issue pointed out that love can be indecisive, as witnessed with Quentin becoming silent in response to the reporter asking if he liked Gwen. There is also appreciation to be had in seeing Kate tear down B.R.O.D.O.K.’s worldview and him shrugging off the revelation to re-embrace his villainous nature.
Stefano Caselli and Triona Farrell continue to bring their A-game when it comes to the art here. I can feel America’s punches or the emotions of the characters. Everything feels honest and true and not out of place. This is certain to be a treat for fans of the series and of the individual characters, especially Tigra.
