Batman was good, the second part of a very good Clayface story. Uncanny Avengers was good too. Avenging Spider-Man was real good, part one of Superior Spidey trying to pull a fast one on SHIELD and shit hitting the fan pretty hard. Avenging Spider-Man is almost feels like a Joss Whedon Avengers movie starring Superior Spider-Man. It's as close as we'll ever get to Spider-Man in an Avengers movie.

Actually, speaking of last week's Hawkeye, it had a real nice callback in it. A couple years ago, Fraction wrote a Hawkeye Young Avengers one-shot, and a key storytelling point was Kate not believing that the Robin Hood shot was possible until Clint proved it to her. In #10, it's Kate who hits the shot while Clint's aim is all over the board. It was a neat moment.
The Face of Battle is one of the most riveting (and sobering) works of history I've ever read. NYT obit: http://www.nytimes.com/2012/08/03/books/sir-john-keegan-historian-who-put-a-face-on-war-dies-at-78.html?pagewanted=all
