As the team faces the World Breaker and discovers the imminent threat to the Avengers World, the hidden connections between the events of Avengers and New Avengers are slowly revealed.

Plus: Canadian super-team Omega Flight gets lost in a Garden Origin Site, and the Avengers learn why 'adaptation' is the scariest word in the Marvel Universe! Then, as Shang-Chi battles an ancient enemy, the Avengers-- hang out in Hong Kong's swankiest casino? But they soon find out it doesn't pay to gamble in the spy business" -- p. [4] of cover.

The second volume of Hickman's run on the title, this continues the slow burn of his story arc and brings concepts from another comic book line, the New Universe, into the equation. The collection hints at things to come later in Hickman's run, and the story features terrific art work. The final issue, featuring a team of Avengers on a casino job of sorts, might seem a bit out of place with what's come before it.

Great read! I have to get the full series.

This is the third time Marvel has introduced its New Universe characters, and it's dazzlingly effective. Hickman picks up concepts laid out by Warren Ellis to present the White Event as part of a larger story about the unseen forces behind the universe. Cosmic Marvel with a hard SF sheen.

I am assuming that this is building toward something. The writing and handling of the amount of characters here is still stellar, as is the artwork, but I feel like the casino located final issue in the collection exists because the writers got bored of the technobabble and the White Event plot line. The Avengers themselves are not given too much to do either, the bulk of the work lies with Nightmask and Starbrand talking with our terraforming aliens from the last volume. I'm curious enough to keep going but I'm just hoping that this ends toward something with a point.

Hickman seems on the verge of doing something great with this series and then it just sort of withers with less payoff than expected. Maybe there's something to come...meanwhile, Marvel continues to mine the fields of great artistic talent and comes up with some guys I'd never heard of before turning in a stellar performance on the pencils.
