Conflict of morals is a key focus in the New Avengers series, and the characters constantly are at odds with each other, debating that fine line between philosophy and practicality. The strife is especially apparent through Captain America, whom has always been a beacon of pure justice and morality. He feels uncomfortable (as he should) in this group, but he holds his ground, refusing to let imminent destruction cloud his moral compass. The dialogues and exchanges between the characters are spot on. Hickman truly has a way with words and drama.
Tragic, tense, and dark, New Avengers #3 joins the ranks of its predecessors as another gem (pun intended) in the Marvel NOW hall of fame.
