Avengers The Initiative #6,
VERY FINE/NEAR MINT
Written by DAN SLOTT
Penciled by STEVE UY
Cover by STEFANO CASELLI
The Gauntlet, the Initiative's top drill instructor, has been beaten and left for dead. And all the evidence points towards his attacker being someone on the base. Who did it? A spy? A recruit? An instructor? This looks like a job for Camp Hammond's MPs. And by the time this is over, more than one important mystery will be revealed. Featuring JUSTICE, CLOUD 9, and... THE SCARLET SPIDERS! (GCC NOTE: No Scarlet Spiders. Sorry.)
"Have you been meaning to start the Initiative but been waiting for a one-off story to get you started? Well, tough, they did one anyway. Guest artist Steve Uy manga-ups enough of this issue to make sure that most of you will hate it, but I wish you’d stick with it. Regular writer Dan Slott crafts an interesting mystery designed to get you up to speed with most of the relevant plotlines, but still leave you wanting more. And you’ll like the regular artist more, I’d assume. Not a bad issue, but a wasted opportunity."
