The Earth has been stolen by two Elders, who have chosen it as a battlefield for a contest between the mysterious Challenger’s resurrected Black Order and the Grandmaster’s Lethal Legion. Being moved from its orbit has thrown the planet into chaos and the various teams are called upon for near-constant search and rescue, but they are seriously undermanned when many of their number are somehow frozen in stasis. The heroes are “obstacles” on the playing field for the two competing teams who are trying, naturally, to capture four MacGuffins.
Funny enough, No Surrender was more like the original Secret Wars than the 2015 Secret Wars, and it was far more entertaining. The three teams are not used to working together, there was a lot of clashing personalities, and then there’s the question of who should lead. And, who is this new “founding” member of the Avengers, Voyager? The reveal of who she really is was predictable right from the start, but how she was woven into the story was still clever. The teams do finally figure out what is happening and begin working together against ALL the villains. And this is why I thought the story was so good – seeing our heroes do what they do best. Plus, I have always liked the character of Quicksilver, but he so rarely gets a good story to work in. Here, he's not only important to the story, there is still more to come for him in the forthcoming "Quicksilver: No Surrender".
Overall, I thought this was a fantastic read. I loved the character interactions, the fights were inventive and had good use of character abilities, and the story was solid without the doom & gloom/end of the universe pall hanging over everything like so much of the last few years of Marvel. I want to escape, see the heroes save the day – and they did.

Neben den eigentlichen "Spielfiguren" sind die Avengers als Hindernisse (man denke an Malefiz) gedacht, die das Einsammeln der Trophäen erschweren sollen. Allerdings lässt der Grandmaster nur eine beschränkte Anzahl unserer Helden zu, die anderen Fallen in Stasis.
Mit von der Partie ist Voyager, die zu den Gründungsmitgliedern der Ur-Avengers zählte. Da reibt sich der Leser erst einmal die Augen und ruft: Was, das stimmt doch nicht!
In Zeiten eines Präsidenten, der von Fake News und alternativen Fakten spricht, ist das Remake des Covers des ersten Avengers-Hefts mit Voyager, der Heldin, die in Vergessenheit geriet, eine witzige Idee. Aber insgesamt tritt die Handlung in diesem Epos doch ziemlich auf der Stelle und ist eine stete Aneinanderreihung von Kämpfen mit wenig Abwechslung. Die Spannung resultiert weniger aus der Story (dabei ist Mark Waid einer meiner Lieblingsautoren), sondern mehr aus den Zeichnungen und dem Design der Seiten. Sie tragen dann auch im wesentlichen dazu bei, dass es den dritte Stern gibt.
A história pega todos os grupos de Vingadores e os coloca para juntos no meio de mais um jogo do Grandmaster, daí para frente é muita ação com algumas boas reviravoltas.
O material extra com a equipe criativa falando quais são suas histórias favoritas dos Vingadores é bem legal.
