Too rushed, and the Avengers tie-in is stupid. But the modernizing of the Norse myth actually kind of works, the space philosophy is stirring, and Marvel should have looked at this before they did Siege, to remind them that the way to make these immortals seem amazing (and worth spending cashes on) is to have their deaths mean something, not to have them carved up in their dozens by Wolverine's kid and Bullseye.
I don't think I've ever read anything by Michael Avon Oeming before and after doing so, I'm still not sure what to think. The first of this book was mind blowing fight after jaw dropping fight, all drawn amazingly by Andrea DiVito. However, the last half, especially the final chapter, was so metaphysically confusing that I don't know what happened except I'm sure it was all undone by later writers. Overall it was a decent read but better to look at.
