From Booklist

Beginning with a cracking-good flashback story featuring Thor’s encounter with X-Men nemesis Apocalypse and exploding into a plot involving time-lord Kang’s manipulation of the Apocalypse Twins and the slaying of godlike Celestial, Marvel presents the second volume featuring a team made of two of its hottest cinematic properties, the Avengers and the X-Men. The scope is ratcheted up to a cosmic level, which, along with a growing cast and a story that breaks off in the middle, will give experienced readers a lot to contend with and newcomers virtually no entry point at all. However, Remender does not do this at the expense of character, creating a sense of dire tension among the team and giving everyone in the large ensemble fine moments, particularly Thor, who feels responsible for letting a vastly powerful weapon fall into enemy hands, and Wolverine, plagued with guilt over the death of his son. Acuna takes over the art chores impressively, giving the space gods and superhumans a luster and wonder that even movies still can’t quite match. --Jesse Karp

About the Author

Beginning his career in animation working on such films as The Iron Giant, Anastasia and Titan A.E., Rick Remender has become a comic-book triple threat - writing, penciling and inking numerous fan-favorite series. Remender served as writer on hit video games Dead Space and Bulletstorm, while providing art for punk/metal bands like NOFX and 3 Inches of Blood. He's co-created many popular independent titles, including the critically acclaimed Fear Agent with longtime collaborators Tony Moore and Jerome Opeña. His time at Marvel started on Punisher and has since led to well-received runs on Uncanny X-Force and Venom.

Spanish illustrator Daniel Acuña began his professional career with the publication of the French series Claus and Simon, later reprinted by the popular American magazine Heavy Metal. Acuña then burst on to the American comics scene with DC's Green Lantern and Flash. For Marvel, he has illustrated such popular series as Young X-Men, Eternals, Black Widow, X-Men Legacy, Avengers, New Avengers and Wolverine.

Format: Hardcover
This volume collects issues Uncanny Avengers 6-11 and Uncanny Avengers 8AU.

Following the events of volume 1, this series kicks it up to apocalyptic levels. To recap, Captain America has made an Avenger Unity squad, made up of Avengers and mutants to combat threats that deal more with the mutant community. Cap feels like he has let them down in the wake of the Avengers vs. X-Men event. He puts mutant "revolutionary" Cyclopes' brother, Havok, in charge. The Red Skull managed to get ahold of the recently deceased Professor X's brain and with it his powers. The Skull tried to provoke a human mutant war in which he would lead the humans in exterminating the mutant threat. Also, picking up from Remender's incredible Uncanny X-Force run, the horseman of pestilence has given birth to the heirs of Apocalypse, The Apocalypse Twins. This faction wishes to lead mutants into the future by exterminating their weaker non-evolved cousin species, humans.

Ooookay, that takes us into this volume as the Red Skull has been defeated but still is out there. Remender really likes a massive story which can get to be dense. The Apocalypse Twins are kidnapped by Kang the Conquer, who for mysterious reasons, takes them into the future and trains them to live up to their birthright of bringing the genocide of humanity. This book gets pretty dark as those who have followed Remender's other works can recognize this trait immediately.

The story starts with issue 6 in an awesome battle between the actual Apocalypse and Thor in the early 1000's. The fight is all part of Kang's manipulation as are most of the events to come.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
In the wake of the supposedly apocalyptic (no relation) events chronicled in AVENGERS VS X-MEN, the Avengers and several mutant camps decided that there needed to be some visible sort of unity squad, composed of Avengers and X-Men-associated mutants. And thus was born the UNCANNY AVENGERS.

Far more interesting to me than the volcanic mix of personalities on the unity squad is the way the writer, Rick Remender, tries to balance out the bad guys so that some are from Avengers lore and some are associated with the X-Men. For instance, in the first compilation, the Red Skull stole the brain of the late Charles "Professor X" Xavier, implanted the telepathic bits in his own brain and then began broadcasting the Nazi hate for which he is so justly reviled. That was a nice job combining the two elements.

This time around it's a bit more. . . odd. See, before penning the UNCANNY AVENGERS, Remender was best known for a long, intricate and very involved X-Force story that introduced the world to the Apocalypse Twins, the spawn of Apocalypse. Well, surprise surprise but they're back. This time, though, they've been aged and put through some difficulties by none other than that Temporal Terror, Kang the Warlord. Thus we have the Apocalypse Twins (sort of) from the X-Men and Kang from the Avengers.

Remender seems to like nothing more than writing a huge, epic struggle in which worlds end, heroes die, and bad guys do those things that make them bad guys. Which is to say that there is a LOT of stuff happening here in this first volume of the Apocalypse Twins. Yes, the first volume. The story does not conclude with the end of this compilation.

I was skeptical about this series before I started reading it, as the "Apocalypse Twins" just sounded corny, and I'm not a fan of the way comics will have someone have children, then get in a rush to have them become adults so they whisk them off to another time/dimension or stick them in a convenient "rapid aging machine" until they grow up and then they come back. That's what happens here, and once you get past that, it's a pretty good story.

If you didn't read Age of Ultron or were not interested in it (like me) you can skip the issue #8AU, which is the second issue in this collection, since it's just an alternate universe story that didn't connect much with the main story.

Remender clearly has a thing for Apocalypse stories, as he spent a lot of time on it in his Uncanny X-Force run as well. We see here another incarnation of the four horsemen, all of whom are characters who have died. We also get to see the horsemen that were introduced in X-Force. The Apocalypse Twins are actually interesting characters with some fascinating ties to Kang.

I loved the character interactions in this book as much as anything. Remender has a way of allowing plenty of focus on the relationships between the heroes while still telling a very extreme adventure story. Both work well together in a way rarely seen in most comics. The art is great throughout as well. I enjoyed Daniel Acuna's art much better than the work in the previous volume.

One more thing I didn't like about this: There is an ancestor of one of the Uncanny Avengers featured in the first issue, which is a Thor vs. Apocalypse story that takes place in medieval times. This character looks EXACTLY like his descendant and has most of the same character traits, from what little we see of him.
