I really think this is Hickman’s best work in long time, probably since the middle-period of Secret Warriors. This book is just great, wide-screen superheroics in the Millar/Hitch tradition, but with enough of Hickman’s own personality in it that it doesn’t feel repetitive. I love that Hickman has reduced Thor’s power-levels back to how it was in the early years of the Ultimates, I much preferred Ultimate Thor when it was ambiguous whether or not he was a God or just crazy, and whilst that ambiguity is still gone, it’s great he’s not overly strong again. Esad Ribic’s art was top-quality again, and he really made the attempted attack on The City seem real and gave the Nuclea Explosion real impact. It was great to see Spider-Woman and Black Widow II show up, but at the moment I’m just counting down the pages until Captain America shows up, right now I’m guessing the last page of #4, but it may be even later than that.

Epic book. Feels Luke Warren Ellis during his Stormwatch/Authority heyday

Yeah, this comic reeks of The Authority, the action is huge and the fiction is sciencey and the characters yell a lot. Certainly it's the most accessible of Hickman's Marvel work and while I'm no fan of the colouring it's still a great looking book.

Liking this book. It still has this feeling like it's almost like Ellis or Millar's epic Ultimates or Stormwatch runs and coming up just a tad short; but that might be just because we are still in the middle of the storyline.

I love the coloring.

Dean White, combined with Ribic's art gives the book a very unique feel. Very European.
