While Jonathan Hickman's ideas are usually too big, here its perfect. An enormous, worlds changing event that actually is about the rivalry between two old foes. The book would not be easy for new readers, I completely understand that. There are huge elements from both Hickman's runs on Fantastic Four and The Avengers. Without those, I would have had many many questions. However, I had read those and it was like all the pieces of the puzzle coming together. There were so many "Oh Bleep" moments here that weren't just shock deaths. Creativity is at an all-time high here. The art by Esad Ribic is fantastic. I love that he was able to complete the book on his own. Overall, a truly epic story that is now one of my favorite event comics.
A "marvelous" masterpiece. All the feeling of a live action MCU movie.
