dramatic new vision of the Marvel Universe. Featuring Marvel's most
elite characters-including IronMan, Captain America, Thor, the Avengers
and more-as they embark on bold new adventures, this volume is the
perfect jumping-on point for the Heroic Age.
This was just little snippets of different story lines, with no real story arc to connect them all together. Some things I really liked a lot, and will look for more in those series, like Avengers Academy and The Incredible Hercules, The New Prince of Power. I also liked the Hawkeye and Mockingbird story, which I can't find a continuation of at my library.
On the other hand, there were some really bad ones. I was bored at times, which doesn't usually happen for me with Marvel comics. All in all, I don't think I'd necessarily recommend this, but there was definitely some good to be found here.
