The cover of this is pretty shameless, ‘1st issue! … of a new era’. You can’t fool me Marvel! This is #163 and you know it! I’m a sucker for time-travel stories, and this looks like it’s going to be a good one. We’ll get to compare and contrast some of the most noble superheroes in Marvel history in The Invaders with some of the least in the Tbolts. Plus there’s also weird stuff going on with Swamp Thing and Satana, and of course Luke Cage is back in the present. I’m not sure how exactly this is a new era, but it was a lot of fun, and a nice break from the heaviness of the last few Fear Itself tie-in issues. And we got an Imperious Rex! Any comic where Namor says his catchphrase is automatically awesome.

Another great issue. Parker just obviously understands these characters so well.

It's as good a place to begin as any I guess and it is the start of a new storyarc. The start would be a little confusing if you weren't aware of what the team went through during Fear Itself, but I think Parker does a good enough job that those events should be clear to you.

Fixer was really interesting this issue too. It looks like he regrets the side he's chosen.
