The Red Skull/Onslaught is so dangerous that even a cadre of villains shows up to help the heroes defeat him (because they’re not going to let him rule if they can’t!). A spell cast during that battle goes wrong, leaving everyone…confused. The change of alignment (heroes turning bad, and villains turning good) isn’t instantaneous and the initial build-up is very good. I loved how Tony Stark was handled, in particular. His actions are insidious, and somehow right in line with his character. But everyone else just suddenly became selfish to a murderous degree. There is little to differentiate each villainous hero from another - the way that the supervillains stand apart from one another in the normal continuity. Further, Axis only affects the heroes and villains involved in the battle. This was a bit of a letdown for me because it meant there were still “real heroes” left to fix the problem.
The best part of the story are the villains who are suddenly good. They were far more interesting than the heroes, but had very little screen time. The realization that they perhaps didn’t want to go back to being villains, but had to for the greater good, was a concept that deserved so much more!
Overall, this was a fun read but not sufficiently fleshed out. And this hardcover release is way overpriced for the amount of material collected within. Cautiously recommended.
