Book description:
The Avengers are fragmented! While one group seeks out the Illuminati for a confrontation, another takes the fight to the new Cabal! What has become of Tony Stark... to say nothing of Doctor Strange...!

COLLECTING: Avengers 38-39, New Avengers 26-28


The second volume in Jonathan Hickman's big lead up to Secret Wars left me wanting a little. The entire volume leads up to one big battle between the three groups all trying to figure out how to stop the Final Incursion: the Illuminati, the Cabal, and SHIELD. I didn't really feel like a whole lot was going on in this volume leading up to the battle (or maybe it's just that I'm a little burnt out on this story at this point, as it really has been going on for years now), but when each of the groups kept throwing a larger, more surprising and shocking group at each other, I really began to roll my eyes. It's getting old, and I'm not really sure that I care about what happens at this point getting to Secret Wars. There's just been way too much lead up; get to the point already, Marvel!
