Siege: Aftermath Avengers Prime #1

I can't get enough of Marvel Comics' Avengers.  Especially after the effects of Siege and the new Heroic Age relaunch.  It's nice to see the big three of the original Avengers (Steve Rogers, Tony Stark and Thor) back together. 
Asgard has been destroyed by Norman Osbourn and his 'government' cronies, Steve Rogers is now in charge of S.H.I.E.L.D. and the nations' security and Iron Man has reverted to his old armor of several versions ago.
Together the old friends work together to piece things together and try to put the nation back on its feet after the devastating Siege fiasco.
However, Steve Rogers and Tony Stark are still on edge with each over the events of the last few years and Thor is feeling displaced.
Exploring the ruins of Asgard, the trio accidentally trigger the shattered Rainbow Bridge's interdimentional capabilities and find themselves transported who knows where. 
Steve takes on some trolls, Tony Stark tries to fix his antiquated armor and Thor comes face-to-face with the Enchantress.  And that's just for starters!
This is the Avengers the way I like it-lots of fisticuffs, drama and action!  Brian Michael Bendis and Alan Davis serve up some good old Avengers fun with a killer story and dynamic art.  Who could ask for more?  Avengers Assemble!
