First, Hyperion and Captain Universe begin the godlike education of the transformed Savage Land children. But when the High Evolutionary stakes his claim on the Children of the Sun, Hyperion learns the true cost of the decisions he's made - and the techno-titan Terminus returns! Then, the prelude to Infinity begins as all Earth's Origin Sites go active - and the planet begins communicating with something much more ancient than humans. And when alien races fleeing an intergalactic terror crash to Earth, Captain Universe and Manifold must take a trip across the universe. But whatever happened to Ex Nihilo, Abyss, Starbrand and Nightmask? As the Avengers recruit more members to deal with the mounting threat, the builders enter the Marvel Universe - and Infinity is upon us.

Nice Artwork & Storyline.

Hickman writes a dense storyline that sets up the Infinity event, featuring a number of the Avengers dealing with new threats and taking on new memberships as well. It can be a difficult read at times for those not familiar with his style, but he writes for the long term. And it's so much better than the work done on the Avengers by the previous writer, who, mercifully, has moved off to annoy fans of the X-Men.

And we're still building here but we've done a better job of it here I think. Hyperion connects with the children from the Savage Land, which is sweet as Spiderman and Thor try to impart some essential knowledge to them in their own ways. We're leading up to the Infinity event here, obviously, and I'm thinking I really need to read New Avengers as well since the two series run parallel to each other. The mass of characters is getting a little bit shaky here - especially with the proper addition of two more. Captain Universe insists that the team needs to get bigger and I hope these additions are enough because we may have a real problem here if more are added.

There's some amazing art and some of dialogues are cool, but I feel that Hickman really suffers from having to service so very many characters- I really don't see what is the point of including major characters like Spidey or Wolverine just for cameos when they are also trying to introduce compelling new characters, too. At the same time, it is a prelude, so let's hope it's all "preluding" to something worthwhile.

This book tries to be epic: world shattering powers, outerworldly characters, and a universe spanning catastrophe on the way; however, it feels like the writer was given the task of filling a complete volume without giving any explanation or advancing the plot since the Infinity event wasn't due yet. All in all, this is just panel after panel of incoherent nonsense, and it tries to stand on art alone. At one point they needlessly show Banner turning to the Hulk that doesn't pan out into anything at all, it seems because the Hulk hadn't been shown yet. I am really hoping the Infinity event yields an interesting read since Age of Ultron severely disappointed me, and the build up to Infinity has been too long and too incoherent.
