He hails from an unimaginable era: the 31st century. Fleeing through the timestream from the pursuing team of futuristic defenders known as the Guardians of the Galaxy, Korvac the Machine Man has established a secret presence on present-day Earth in the self-created persona of the mysterious Michael. Through such an unassuming guise, Korvac contemplates the elements of a universe he thirsts to command. Yet despite the subtlety of Michael’s machinations, the world’s greatest super-team — the mighty Avengers — catches wind of his cosmos-conquering scheme, thus drawing the two titanic forces into inevitable conflict.

  1. I’m buying this, but I’d rather have it in softcover format.

    And what is with these ugly black covers on all the classic hardcovers? I’d much rather see full-cover art and the classic logos than these bland cover treatments!

    That said — I already own all of the original issues, but I buy as many classic Avengers collections as they are willing to print.
