Odin proposes a toast before they all face their doom together but Lady Phoenix proposes to kill whatever it is.

Apparently, these Stone Age Avengers have already put one of them down and now there is a group of Celestials upon them. As the female living weapon asks if there is any hope for survival, Agamotto remains clueless while the others all charge into battle.

Today, Odinson, Steve Rogers and Tony Stark reunite after a long time to celebrate and Steve couldn't help but hinting at reassembling The Avengers, which Tony is against of completely. Thor however agrees to Steve saying, they are destined to do this and then suddenly Tony's new A.I. assistant alerts him of a massive energy fluctuations.

In South Africa, Black Panther is aided by Doctor Strange in a cave investigating the remains of two dead archaeologists. T'Challa believes that these men died of cosmic radiation and he wants Strange's power to identify it, leading the latter to discover the magic of Agamotto himself and following the probes deep beneath the Earth.

Avengers – The Final Host | Comics

Robbie Reyes is home with his brother Gabe and hasn't been feeling good lately as he is still trying to figure out his Ghost Rider persona. After her last encounter with The Leader, Jennifer Walters is trying her best not to turn into She-Hulk again when a pervert kept annoying her when she was walking alone on the Upper West Side of Manhattan.

A huge warp-hole appears near the low-orbit space station of Alpha Flight and Captain Marvel sees a Celestial hand coming out that causes her to sound every global alarm. Steve, Thor and Tony head towards the site and see something huge fall off the sky.

A journey to the center of the Earth takes Black Panther and Doctor Strange to a place full of egg-like object lying dormant. Meanwhile, Robbie was recalling his encounter with Starbrand when suddenly; he sees a swarm of bug-like creatures coming out of ground and turns into Ghost Rider. Strange and T'Challa faces the same horde at the same time.

What came out of the warp-hole and dropped into Hudson River is a fallen Celestial and The Avengers sees Col. Carol Danvers standing beside it. Tony asks her if she had killed it but she says it was already dead when it came and there are at least hundreds more coming. Cap shouts their iconic battle-cry seeing another group of Celestials coming.

Captain America, Iron Man and Thor charges at this group of The Final Host with everything they have. Jen Walters finds herself near the dead Space God but is immediately attacked by a swarm that caused her to turn into She-Hulk and squish the bugs. She and Robbie Reyes bumped into each other and invoke a fight before getting busy with the bugs.

Captain Marvel plans to hurl The Final Host into sun using her omega-level warp grenades and Cap even pulls off a desperate stunt to eradicate this threat but them all are suddenly restrained by the God of Mischief, Loki. He has allied himself with the dark Celestials and after kidnapping Cap, he left The Avengers dealing with the locust horde.

Avengers – The Final Host

To begin with a freah-start, Marvel Comics hired comic-book writer Jason Aaron (Original Sin, Thanos Rising) in 2018 to set a grand plot which will expand to the past, present and future of The Avengers, which takes place on the eighth ongoing volume of the series from issues #01-06. The arc goes back and forth to connect lose knots to bigger secrets.

He was assisted by artists Ed McGuinness (Avengers – X-Sanction, Superman – Emperor Joker), Paco Medina (New X-Men – Mercury Falling, New X-Men – Nimrod) and Sara Pichelli (Spider-Men, Spider-Men II). McGuinness also provided cover arts for issues involved and David Marquez (Defenders – Kingpins of New York, Defenders – Diamonds Are Forever) worked on a few variants.

Still After Avengers

Although the Dark Celestials were never a Thanos-level threat to begin with, the heroes were still challenged like never before and the next arc promises to be more action-packed. Odin and his Stone Age Avengers have much starting secrets for the heroes to know. Despite The Eternals all perishing during the story, Marvel will probably revive them in future.

Tony slipping into coma after fighting with Carol Danvers during Civil War II, Cap turning into an agent of Hydra from Secret Empire and events of The Unworthy Thor were all referenced as a callback to all three of them to come together once again. "Jen Walters Must Die" storyline from She-Hulk monthly series hinted to her issues as well.

Champions – Change The World | Comics

In New Jersey, at Khan Family residence, Kamala Khan was having breakfast with her family and was thinking about prior events that took place three days ago while her father Yusuf Khan asks her why is she not out much lately. She recalls her last mission with The Avengers at Queens, when she was busy balancing a derailed train as Giant Girl in the middle of a fight against Wrecking Crew. She managed to save hundreds of passengers of that train while Sam Wilson and Jane Foster smites Thunderball and Piledriver of the gang down as Captain America and Thor.

As her teammates wrapped things up after taking down the bad guys, she asks them about their agenda on battle damage nearby and how their fight is constantly disrupting civilian lives. Vision agrees with her and points out how people are angry at them because of their recent internal skirmish. They needs to earn that trust back. Her argument on the topic with Captain America has proved his points invalid to her as Ms. Marvel leaves the team while Jane Foster's Thor shockingly watched an Avenger quit again. Being bored sitting in home, she called her friends Miles Morales and Sam Alexander to meet her.

Champions – Change The World | Comics

At George Washington Bridge, when Miles and Sam showed up as Spider-Man and Nova, they thought Ms. Marvel was about to request them to re-join The Avengers but she reveals that she already quit. Kamala explains to them that they should be forming a team who actually cares about super-heroics and can make an actual difference. Miles suggests enlisting extraordinary young hero Amadeus Cho AKA Totally Awesome Hulk to their team. Cho was inside a Kentucky hills coal mine at that time for a rescue mission, where Ms. Marvel, Nova and Spidey showed up to lend their hands.

With some coordinated plan, there four successfully rescued the miners trapped inside and Cho then vouched for his gaming partner Viv Vision to be included as well. Riding in Cho's Meat Wagon, they all reached at Vision's house and Amadeus explains to the three ex-Avengers how they need to tap into worldwide events to get involved. He suggested making Viv as their personal trouble-alert because of her built in Wi-Fi multiprocessors. To demonstrate her ability of filtering urgent problems from web, Viv picked up footage of captive girls in a cargo seeking help.

They all quickly rushed to the source of that video transmission to confront a demented clown called Pagliacci with his crews to stop them from deporting those captive girls. After they successfully foiled his attempt of human trafficking, Kamala announces themselves on behalf of her friends as The Champions by handing Pagliacci over to authorities. However, while they celebrate their first victory and there is more to come, there is one more member to add to their ranks who is none other than a time displaced young X-Men leader Cyclops.

Civil War II | Comics

Because of Black Bolt detonating a Terrigen Bomb during the time Thanos came to invade New Attilan looking for his son (Infinity), a new generation of Inhumans called NuHumans is introduced to the world. Among them was Ulysses Cain, a NuHuman with near-accurate precognitive abilities, who prophesied of an upcoming dystopian future. This came in handy when The Avengers successfully stopped an invasion of a Celestial Destructor in Earth, with help from A-Force, Inhumans, The Ultimates and X-Men.

Doctor Strange and the combined effort of the magic wielders were able to send the Celestial back to its own dimension. As the heroes learned about Ulysses at the celebratory party of their victory, Captain Marvel wanted to recruit him to The Ultimates, whereas Iron Man argues over the logic of trying to stop something before it even takes place. However, in an attempt to apprehend Thanos according to Ulysses' visions, Carol Danvers and her team ambushed The Mad Titan, resulting in the death of War Machine and She-Hulk ended up in coma.

Civil War II | Comics

An infuriated Tony Stark then kidnaps Ulysses from New Attilan to further study the true nature of his powers, leading Tony into conflict with Medusa, Crystal and Karnak of The Inhumans. When Black Panther deduced that Karnak is about to destroy the Stark Tower in retaliation, the combined force of The Avengers, S.H.I.E.L.D. and The Ultimates rushed to the spot to stop him. As Tony runs tests on him, Ulysses projected another vision regarding The Hulk, as he will go into a rampage and kill The Avengers.

Carol approaches a de-powered Bruce Banner in his secret base to come out and cooperate but Hawkeye shoots him dead with an arrow after Beast confirms of Banner is experimenting to regain his powers. Tony show to Captain America, Captain Marvel and Medusa that Ulysses' visions are actually probabilities of possible future, not absolute truth and he revealed it to the world. Carol still refuses to stop using Ulysses' visions to stop possible world-ending threats.

However, things got a bit escalated when she arrested a citizen named Alison Green, believed to be an agent of Hydra based on a prediction Ulysses made but was unable to prove her of any guilt. When Tony got her out of custody, Carol attempts to arrest Tony Stark and he brought over the team of All-New X-Men and The Avengers to confront her. Then Alpha Flight and Guardians of the Galaxy joins Carol against Tony and then Ulysses has a vision of Miles Morales killing Steve Rogers.

After causing genocide to millions of souls among the stars, long-lost team member of The Avengers; Hank Pym finally returns to Earth. Rogue was the one who stumbled onto him first while she was headed towards saving Soyuz Capsule from crushing. Hank's body was merged with Ultron during their previous battle and was lost to all. Hank believed that he was forgotten but he was actually thought dead by his friends because of what happened to him. Rogers was busy taking down some extremists in wildlife reserve of La Reserva with Deadpool and she took Hank right there.

Hank Pym claims that he has finally taken complete control over his creation when rests of their teammates are gathered at Cap's location. Cable asks Pym to submit his suit for peer review but Hank reveals that there is not much organic part left and he is now a singular being with Ultron. He then flies off to Avengers Mansion and Cap tells Rogue to keep an eye on him. Cable, Deadpool, Doctor Voodoo, Human Torch, Quicksilver and Synapse were already skeptical about him from beginning though. Acting weirdly out of his character, Hank blows up his memorial claiming it's a lie since he is alive.

His ex-wife Janet van Dyne was informed about his return by Steve earlier for a second opinion on Hank. During a mission in subway, Wasp casually joined to welcome Hank back, who is overjoyed to see her and she called him away to have a talk with him. When he walks into the theater, Cable starts pushing Hank with some facts that finally made Ultron reveal his true nature. A blast takes down their entire headquarter along with Cable and Human Torch in it. Janet took him down with an EMP burst to slow him down for a moment when Vision enters the scene to confront his father.
