Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The Heroic Age is the short phase between the crossover events Siege and Fear Itself. This book has three main sections that cover the Avengers teams.

The first part of the book is Avengers Prime, which is a wrap-up story that follows directly after Siege. This one-shot tries to answer the question of whether Steve and Tony could ever work together again after Civil War. Thor, Tony and Steve stand upon the ruins of Asgard when they are suddenly teleported away and separated. What follows is the three trying to reunite, having to deal with hostile residents, and Thor discovering that Asgard being on Earth, and subsequently destroyed, has thrown the realms into literal chaos. A dark force has taken control. This story is light on substance, but heavy on action and banter, and there is just enough plot to make it work. Overall, I loved it. It hit all the right notes and provided a bit of closure after some horrifying events.

The second part of the book is the Avengers, Vol. 1. For me, this was the weakest part of the book. On the one hand, I love that Steve is back with the Avengers, with Thor and Hawkeye "resurrected", and trying to make peace with Tony. However, I was not happy to see their first challenge as a team is once again Ultron, with Kang thrown in to mix it up. I hate Ultron, and am not a fan of Kang either, because they are such one note villains.
