The Illuminati must reassemble to prevent the collision of our universe with another! It's the Marvel Universe's most powerful and brilliant team - Black Panther, Iron Man, Dr. Strange, Black Bolt, Mr. Fantastic, Sub-Mariner and the Beast - armed with the six Infinity Gems against an infinite legion of parallel realities. But their task is complicated by old wounds, lies and secret agendas. When the Illuminati experiences its first dimensional incursion, can the members of this loose brotherhood trust each other enough to use the Infinity Gems in unison? And when they learn Earth is the center point for the death of the universe, doesn't that mean destroying it might save everything else? Enter the world-eater, Galactus, as the Illuminati does the unthinkable! Jonathan Hickman and Steve Epting revamp New Avengers in a multi verse-spanning saga!

This is the beginning of the massive Incursion story arc that runs in parallel with Hickman's New Avengers series all the way through Infinity and Secret Wars, with tie-ins with most of the contemporary Marvel series.

The characters, art, and pacing are well done, but the central plot point leaves something to be desired. The "incursions" exist to provide a rather contrived moral dilemma: a thought experiment with cosmic stakes. They are designed to move our heroes to the regrettable but edgy and popular conclusion that the ends justify the means, all while conveniently collapsing the over-extended Marvel multiverse.

Nevertheless, if you can get past (or enjoy?) that conceit, this volume is key to understanding the rest of the arc that follows. And the incursions certainly provide a vehicle for great character development, major consequences for the Marvel universe, and good art along the way.

Hickman is one of the best writers currently in the Marvel bullpen, and I greatly enjoyed his take on some of the smartest superheroes on the planet banding together to face an enormous threat...that being said, New Avengers is maybe a bit of a misleading title for the series as the only traditional core Avengers team-member who features throughout is Iron Man, with a brief appearance by Captain America. Illuminati would have been a better title, but of course they would have lost a lot of the red-hot name recognition.

The other of the two Avengers books that Jonathan Hickman took over after endless years of having the core of the titles hijacked by a horrible writer. Hickman takes a concept that Bendis came up with- a secret association of heroes from various groups that make decisions for the world- and actually makes it work. Where Bendis steamrolled his way through continuity, Hickman does not. He takes the original group, tweaks things a bit, but gives us a story of people faced with unimaginable catastrophe and the ethical compromises they must make to prevent it. The characterization is done very well for each member of this group, and Hickman is backed up with ideal art by Steve Epting, who has a brooding quality to his work.
