Super? Eh, not quite.
I'd say so. I was hoping for more wide ranging psych ideas, but it was not completely disappointing.
I've seen the other titles and most follow the same "____ and psychology" setup. Most of which I'm, unfortunately, not interested in.
I did enjoy this book. It took many characters and events for the avengers under the microscope, but there was some things that just felt missing. I thought some important characters were left out in favor of lesser characters. We all love our favorite archer Hawkeye, but did he deserve to take spotlight away from the Hulk, one of the listed Avengers founders who was not examined? I walso would have liked to hear the psychology aspects applied in a broader sense, as I have seen in other comic hero psych books. But, these things do not completely take away from a quick and entertaining listen.
