Comic Books


They were friends, brothers and teammates through all of Marvel’s greatest adventures, but recent events turned them into the bitterest of enemies. In the wake of the Siege of Asgard Thor, Iron Man and Steve Rogers are brought together on the same side once more, but these great heroes can’t truly trust each other yet. They better start soon because something only the Big Three can handle is tearing their world apart. This all-new, grand and dangerous adventure will catapult our heroes into the explosive Heroic Age and will unite comics legend Alan Davis with Avengers scribe Brian Bendis for the very first time.

Users who pulled this comic:


  1. I am waffling on whether or not I will pick this up – gonna give it a flip test when I visit the store on Thursday.

  2. Intirgiuing creative team. Will check it out, but it is competing against 4 other Avengers relaunches, so it will have to do something special.

  3. The preview was pretty awful, particularly when Steve and Tony grousing just outside the wreckage of Asgard.

  4. … I kinda feel sorry for the people that are way into Marvel. 3.99 for all this stuff…. damn


  5. I kinda feel sorry for people that still bitch about comics being $3.99

  6. I kinda feel sorry for people . . .

  7. I feel…

  8. I…


  10. … I kinda feel sorry for the people that are way into Marvel. 3.99 for all this stuff…. damn

  11. Hmmm…I thinking that I might wait for the trade on this.  That way I’ll be able to hear if it’s worth it and I love having trades of Alan Davis artwork.

  12. This will be awesome.  I hear the pencils are done for all issues.

  13. $20 for the first issues of Avengers Prime, Avengers, New Avengers, Secret Avengers, and Avengers Academy. I hope everyone REALLY enjoys them.

  14. @kickass

    Then why is it bi-monthly?

  15. @NawidA: So far, so good.

  16. The new Avengers books have all been really good in my opinion. I’m on board for this as well.

  17. i think that there hasn’t been anything terrible about the avenger books. i wouldn’t say that they have blown up skirt up yet

  18. I hope this will be better than the main Avengers book.

  19. @NawidA: Listen to the Bendis Tapes from May he mentions this

  20. @Horrorofsorts: why play with him like that? just tell him if you know if the book is bi-monthly. what’s with go listen to 4 hours of bendis’ nasel whine to found out? 🙂

  21. here, I’ll narrow it down.  it’s on the second part of the most recent Bendis Tapes, which was posted here on iFanboy only a week ago.  and if the original question-asker wants to know so bad, HE should be the one to go find it, not the one(s) pointing the way.

  22. Steve looks like Roger Moore.

  23. Steve Rogers, Roger Moore, Alan Moore, Alan Davis!

  24. Gotta be honest, I don’t really understand the fondness for Alan Davis’ art work. It just seems pretty standard 1986. It’s servicable but…ehh. I’m buying this for Bendis.

  25. I gave to second Conor, I haven’t been let down by an avengers comic yet. And I have a light week so will grab this. With my lcs discount it’s only 3 bucks

  26. @OnASunday – You just blew my mind! It all makes sense now! I am going to invent a time machine.

  27. It is a surprisingly light week, so I may just pick this up. Plus: Bendis! It’s been a while since he’s had anything come out.

  28. So, why is it bi-monthly?

  29. @NawidA: i don’t know. i’m interested as well

  30. we pointed you in the right direction.  it’s like you’re asking the librarian to do your homework here.

  31. So this is like the main avengers book except only 3 people and they apparently dont really trust each other.

    Righto, I guess someone out there might like it.

  32. For me this book has to be relevant to the new status quo as well as being a good read.  Being a good read and having this Thor, Cap, and Iron Man not feel the same as the ones in the other Heroic Age Bannered books would be a failure.

  33. I bet it’s like a couples retreat.

    Teaser for issue 2: Someone’s Feelings Get Hurt! 

  34. Was gonna wait for the trade on this, but…I can’t.



  35. @ABirdseysView — And yet, in the number of posts and time spent telling him to look it up for himself, you could have just imparted the information.

    Everyone else: from what I recall of the Bendis Tapes, Davis requested the bi-monthly schedule. Bendis was then surprised to learn that everything was done. Apparently Davis just turns entire issues in at once. I might not recall this exactly, but it seems like it was "hey, if that’s how Alan freakin’ Davis wants it, who are we to argue?"

  36. Damn someone at my lcs told me this was bi-weekly. guess they heard wrong.


  37. So the book should be monthly after #2 then?

  38. I just read it! Wow! It really fills in the gap between Siege #4 and Avengers #1…so far.

  39. I thought this was exceptional. With the exception of where it fits into continuity. Diving into the Thor Mythos is something that just isn’t done enough anymore. And as much as I hate the idea that the Avengers should be built on a formula of God, Soldier, Scientist/Tech Guy, Ninja, Magician, etc. This looks to be more personal than just saying that Thor, Cap, and Tony are friends and having them argue.

  40. I really enjoyed this.  To bad the second issue doesnt come out til August fuckin 4th. I really dont like all these new bi monthly issues at marvel.  We wont know the end to a four part story, which is being sold to us as the "aftermath" of Siege, til December.  That just seems ridiculous to me.

  41. Who says it can’t jump forward in time with the other continuity books? Even though it is out of continuity…

  42. Supremely fun! You can’t go wrong with Alan Davis. Seeing Steve kick those troll’s asses was ridiculous fun! That last panel of him picking up the shield with a smirk was pure gold! The colors were a bit too surreal and dark for this type of over-the-top Nine Realms story, but not enough to make me hate it. POTW for me.

  43. It was ok, but why was Clint already in his Hawkeye costume in it? At the aftermath he was still Ronin.

  44. @ButchCassidy: I assume it was later – they came back to Asgard after the team formed. At the end of SIEGE, Steve was Cap and Clint was Ronin but here they are in their new identities. So I assume it’s well after SIEGE.

  45. @Conor… Makes sense. I didn’t even think about Cap’s outfit being different too. Although I heard this was supposed to bridge the gap between the end of Siege and Avengers #1(where he changed costumes), which is why I assumed this took place before Avengers #1. Either way it
    doesn’t really matter, I have a feeling a lot of the new Avenger continuity might not match up since it’s spread between so many books, but as long as the stories are good, I don’t really care.

  46. @conor: Good point. It wasn’t right after the Siege attempted because the Asgardians were there rebuilding/salvaging.

    Fuck Fallen Sun, this was the true Siege epilogue in my opinion!

  47. You just can’t go wrong with rainbiw swirls drawn by Alan Davis

  48. @Conor It could only be a few hours later because Iron Man is still wearing the old armor.  Maybe Alan Davis just wanted to draw Hawkeye and that’s why he was in the costume.

  49. I wasn’t planning on picking this up but couldn’t resist it when I got to the shop.  I am happy I did though because I really enjoyed it. 

  50. I hope this sells like crazy.  Alan Davis is criminally underappreciated.

  51. @DamonS23: Great point.
