When the First Celestial Host stepped onto Earth, it was opposed by The Avengers of 1,000,000 BC consisting of Agamotto, All-Father Odin, Black Panther, Ghost Rider, Iron Fist, Lady Phoenix and a Hulk-like creature powered by Starbrand. 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.

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.

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.

AXIS | Comics

Following Avengers/X-Men War, Captain America decided to form a team of The Avengers with human and mutant superheroes from X-Men. They were almost immediately troubled by Nazi super-villain Red Skull has stepped into war-torn island nation of Genosha to claim the powerful mind of Professor Charles Xavier from his corpse and to create an army to rule world in his vision. With his new-found psychic powers, Skull decides to re-ignite the age-old war between humans and mutants to eradicate the latter race from Earth forever but Avengers Unity Division came in his way.

Red Skull then escaped to Genosha, turning it into a secret mutant concentration camp where his army of S-Men tortures and ran experiments on mutants. Upon hearing about Skull’s activities, mutant terrorist Magneto arrives at Genoshan island nation to confront him only to be captured and tortured by Red Skull. Help came in form of Havok, Rogue and Scarlet Witch, who broke in to help him back to his feet again. In a blind fury, Magneto slays the entire fleet of S-Men assembled there as well as Skull himself with his enhanced power boosts from Mutant Growth Hormone.

Everyone present there thought his menace was end for good, only for the villain to re-appear as the terrifying Red Onslaught. As Red Onslaught, Red Skull spreads his message of hatred worldwide to wage a new "World War Hate". Overwhelmed by Onslaught's power, Wanda Maximoff briefly gave in to him and Magneto were tossed around to one of the camps where he finds Cyclops, Genesis and Kid Omega all captured. Genesis got stabbed by Ahab while Cyclops and Havok were fighting but then Colossus, Nightcrawler and Storm brings the cavalry of other heroes in.

In Los Angeles, The Avengers came across Plantman and are exposed to some sort of rage pheromone emitted by him. This caused Sam Wilson to insult Thor to get hit by Jarnbjorn, then Vision crashing Odinson through Quinjet and Doc Green getting angry. Sunfire suddenly attacks Wasp for no reason at all and then Iron Man finally put a stop to this madness by taking down Plantman. With other fractured teams of The Avengers, Inhumans and X-Men, Iron Man arrives to face Red Skull in his newest form but then the latter unleashes two Adamantium Stark Sentinels on them.

Skull had Tony secretly build those killing machines during Civil War under his evil influence to fight all heroes against his reign. When seriously outmatched by Stark Sentinels, Rogue suggested Doctor Strange and Scarlet Witch to cast a spell that would invert Skull's moral axis and let Charles Xavier take over to stop Onslaught but didn't work at first for Nova's lack of experience. They reassembled once again only to fall, when Magneto arrives with an army of super-villains to buy Strange and Wanda time to complete their inversion spell but Stephen is taken out and Doctor Doom stepped in to help complete the spell.

Now their moral axis reversed, major super-villains like Absorbing Man, Carnage, Deadpool, Enchantress, HobgoblinJack O'LanternLoki, Mystique and Sabretooth turned into heroes and Doom was gone. Skull's body was left behind and a stir caused among the heroes regarding whether to wake him up to free Xavier or let The Avengers take custody of him. Meanwhile, X-Men members of Jean Grey School For Higher Learning have gathered from Genosha by Evan Sabah Nur turned a new Apocalypse to rule entire mankind by releasing a gene bomb to wipe out existence of all humans from New York City.

Amazing Spider-Man – The Parker Luck | Comics

When Spider-Man was gone, the world has changed and Peter Parker returns only to discover someone amazing like him out there.

After one of his greatest enemies, Doctor Octopus living in his shell as Superior Spider-Man for months, Peter Parker is back again as the Amazing Spider-Man. Coming back, he responds to an alarm for robbery by The Menagerie; a gang of animal-themed criminal members led by White Rabbit.

They came here to loot an auction house with her accomplice Hippo, Panda-Mania and Skein. As he tries to confront them, Skein shreds up his whole costume using her power and he ends up stopping them buck-naked in public.

A few hours back, the first thing he does upon regaining his body is to attend a small press to explain how he is alive after a "Goblin Attack" on Parker Industries. Thanks to Doc Ock, his PhD is complete; he now owns the company and apparently is in a relationship with Anna Maria Marconi.

When he gets back to his apartment, Anna was already there and she figured out that he is Spider-Man by seeing footage of his bare body. He explains everything that happened and she is still baffled to know that she was dating a criminal.

Meanwhile, his buddies at Avengers Tower watched him back in action and even though Spider-Woman confirmed it really is indeed their old teammate judging by his goofiness but Captain America calls him to meet anyway. While they were running dozens of tests on him to determine if he really is the real-deal, they were catching up on how Doctor Octopus had mind-swapped with him.

Steve Rogers still remains a bit skeptical because he previously blamed being possessed by the alien symbiote for his behavior. Spidey hit him hard and lashed out at him when he learned that Steve was aware of Flash Thompson being active as Venom.

Amazing Spider-Man – The Parker Luck | Comics

Some of Otto's experiments on super-villain Electro have his powers malfunctioning and he decided to make a comeback. When he entered Conway Penitentiary to re-create his notorious "Breakout in Raft" act, he accidentally blew it up the whole joint.

With his powers gone haywire, Electro desperately seeks for a shelter and finds it on Francine Frye's apartment. Despite his warnings, she tried to kiss him and an uncontrolled power surge fried her. Driven mad by her death, Max Dillon goes after Spider-Man whom he believes responsible for all.

Also, Octavius had an encounter with costumed burglar Black Cat during his stint as a hero and he gave her a severe beating before leaving her wrapped in webs. She escaped captivity as a result of Electro's rampage and wanted to get back at Spidey for ruining her life by throwing her in jail.

She goes to see a confrontation between Spider-Man and Electro to help the latter using her luck power. Later she faced web-head when Max accidentally caused fire to a building full of homeless people and then offered Electro for a team-up.

Shortly, he joined assembled members of Avengers and X-Men to fight protect the city from Mindless Ones. They took down Exterminatrix and The Orb unleashes one of the eyes of the recently deceased Uatu the Watcher.

It shows him that, the radioactive spider that bit him thirteen years ago also bit a girl after him. The girl, Cindy Moon is later taken in by Ezekiel Sims and she is locked away to hide from Morlun. He breaks her out of a secret bunker and instead of being happy for freedom, she is angry on Peter for exposing her Morlun.

Although, the wall-crawler assures her that he took care of the totemic predator away for good, she insists that, he can come back again. Elsewhere, the villain senses her presence and declares of "The Greatest Hunt".

Cindy webbed up a costume for her and Peter learns that she is faster, has better reflexes if not stronger, improved spider-sense and they cannot get their hands off each other when in close proximity. She quickly catches on to the super-hero deal by adopting an identity of Silk and would probably save Spider-Man from getting his secret identity busted and his ass kicked.

Now that Spidey is back in business, "Spider-Verse" crossover event is waiting on the horizon that will let all hell break loose.
