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.

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.

Odinson and the Mighty Thor witness the rise of War Thor as he unleashes his fury of vengeance against Queen of Cinders.

Representing the Congress of Worlds; Senator Milkmane, Senator Roz Solomon and Volstagg travels to the land of Dwarves, Nidavellir to check on Light Elf refugees left behind. Volstagg was slightly disappointed seeing no welcoming feast for him.

He quickly realizes how the refugee kids have been starving for a while and invites them to share his food with. As they were all discussing about what should be done in the aftermath of war, suddenly they are hit with a fiery blast with the sound of the infernal horn and then some more.

Meanwhile, Jane Foster pays Odinson a visit on old Asgard to finally talk about issues of her secretly being The Mighty Thor and now wielding his Mjolnir for all this time. All of these bother him because they used to be lovers once and Odinson suspects she did it to get back at him.

She wanted to tell him about how the cancer in her body is slowly killing her all along but couldn't have sum it up. As they speak about themselves, mighty Mjolnir falls from the sky and Jane immediately senses that there is trouble in Nidavellir.

Senator Milkmane instantly perished on hit of the first blast but Roz Solomon survived and somehow Volstagg finds himself unscathed among a few surviving refugee Light Elf kids, whom he took under his protection.

The entire land of Dwarves gets on fire and Stonefoot informs Solomon that this fire of Muspelheim will consume all it touches before they could even find a shelter. Warrior Volstagg was guarding the kids to safety, when suddenly a Muspelheim Firefly rider lands in front of him with its Maggot Bombs.

Before it could hear Volstagg pleading to spare the kids, the rider exploded the bombs in the name of their queen. Solomon and the Dwarves came looking for them but only found a traumatized Volstagg, because he was saved from the fire of Muspelheim as the Fire Goblin blood covered him at the time of the blast.

In shock and awe, he wanders to the old Asgard as f something was calling him. There, he found the Mjolnir from Ultimate Universe, which transformed him into The War Thor upon lifting it up.

He charged into the waves of Fire Goblins on the burning mountains of Nidavellir and vanquished them all with his thunder. Amora, The Enchantress and King Ulik of the Dark Council attacks The War Thor only to quickly realize their mistakes before escaping.

Back in Asgardia, Jane transformed into The Mighty Thor against the wishes of Odinson, suspecting urgency of the matter. As Sindr, Queen of Cinders stirs her sinister plan with Loki and Malekith the Accursed, War Thor and The Mighty Thor goes on a brawl that will shake all ten realms.

The Mighty Thor – The Galactus Seed | Comics

The "Siege of Asgard" led by Norman Osborn led The Sentry turning into his other persona, The Void, an Angel of Death who left Asgard in ruins like never before. In post-war, Odin All-Father sends Thor and Lady Sif in the furthest depths of Asgard to retrieve an ancient artifact called Worldheart; which is an immensely powerful cosmic heart giving birth to the world tree Yggdrasill, that later spawned the nine realms.

While retrieving it, Thor sustained injuries from the worm-like creatures defending it. His brother Loki came to his aid and they successfully retrieve the heart. The all-seeing Heimdall confronts Odin about the artifact and its origin. Odin discloses to him about an apocalyptic prophecy and then places the heart inside the Destroyer Armor for safekeeping. While the whole Asgard gathers to celebrate this feat, Thor remains mildly distracted with his gut-wound that glows instead of bleeding.

Silver Surfer has been a herald of Galactus for a long-time and his true intention of serving the destroyer of worlds is to let him feed onto barren planets that are dead for millennia, thus sparing the ones with sentient life forms in it. Now, he heads towards Asgard sensing the power of the Cosmic Seed and demands it from Odin.

This sparks a sudden heated confrontation between him and the thunder god until he explains his intention of using it to sate the hunger of Galactus forever. Warning the Asgardians that his master will come for the seed, Surfer leaves. For the final showdown, an elderly god must face the great devourer. It's Odin Vs. Galactus.
