I don't mind the cliffhanger of Jessica being tired of her child being in danger but the Dark Avengers/Osborn stuff wrapped up too quickly for me. It would have been nice to know some of what Osborn/DA had planned besides defacing the Avengers in the media.
Like what was some of Osborn's goals? Why did he have to back in power so badly? I loved how Siege ended with him saying the world is a mess and he was the only one who could fix it. It made it seem like Bendis was building towards something...
As Osborn said in Dark Avengers #16:
"...the wrong creature is going to slam into the wrong mutant and boom. That will be it..
...I know the mutants of this world will rise up to kill us. I know that the Hulk will one day decide to destroy everything he sees. I know the Punisher will one day kill the wrong person and set off a chain of events that will lead to nuclear holocaust. I know that these heroes will dive head first into something they do not understand and end up doing such insane damage to the world that humans can no longer live on it.
Victor Von Doom will crush us under his foot in his last mad gasp for air. I know this is true. I know it.
And I could have stopped it."

What do you mean creature? X-Men have saved the world more times than you have Ozzy. Just stupid barbaric racism is making them villians.
The mutants (what's left of them) will not rise up and kill us Osborn no.
The Hulk will not one day decide to destroy everything he sees. Even at his worst Maestro knew HUMANITY would destroy themselves. Maestro just took what was left and actually saved humanity. Sure he set him self up asa meglomanical despot..but still!
Frank Castle is not as insane as others have written him. He's methodical. He kills someone he makes sure they deserve to die. Also Punisher usually sticks with criminals. When was the last time Castle (in continuity) did a political killing?
The way Bendis writes the Avengers yeah. They don't seem to be competent. I remember the days when they did research. They figured out what the hell was going on, who was behind it, and deal with it. The New Avengers not so much. But lately, and I'm sick of this, I feel as though they have all been dumbed down to make the big bads like Osborn all that. Which is an insult to the characters and the readers.
You do not know the fucking mind of Doom you douche bag Osborn! Don't dare to assume the mind of DOOM!
