This initial storyline picks up from Bendis' New Avengers Vol 2 #7-12, where the Hood tries to assemble the Infinity Gauntlet, but ends with Iron Man holding the gauntlet (hello End Game foreshadowing) and the Illuminati hiding the stones but with Steve getting the sixth stone. This time, Tony claimed "we're going to do it right this time." And we see how long *that* lasted!ReplyDelete
But that also makes me wonder if Hickman and Bendis collaborated to some degree before this series. Putting Cap with the group just to mindwipe him, and all of the fallout from that. And is it just coincidence that Bendis put Namor in the group, considering how his actions later are downright essential to the story? Are there really that many characters that would do what Namor does, but be believably part of group? I really don't think so.
Excellent start! The Beyondists are back!
