We get an issue about one of the prehistoric Avengers starring Starbrand a cro magnon who found love and paradise with a homosapien, which is one of those typical tragic superhero origin stories of course it makes our prehistoric "Hulk" look a little more human than shown before. There's an "even an android can cry" moment at the end.
Aaron seems to have gone the Bendis route of lets do surprising random things to sell books. Its not really spoilers as the promo images showed Brood Thor, Captain Corsair, War Widow, Binary and Man Thing Blade. It's all things done for shock value that don't add anything to the characters. The first issue (second in book) sets it up as an adventure, skips ahead in time to when it's all gone wrong, and then gets random until it's back on track as a race to the original destination.
This whole Starbrand story could have been done in two issues and without the random flashback plot devices which are also kind of lazy writing to do a "let's return to the story from last issue by framing it as a flashback first."
Also, Silver Surfer is here with whatever his new status quo is. Its not great and he is written terribly out of character. He and Terrax and Firelord are acting like some sort of Heralds team and it's off putting and unnecessary. That only makes sense when Galactus is involved, too.
I expected the standalone issue to have a different artist, but nearly each issue is done by a different artist. They all seem to draw similar to McGuinness which I assume was the idea.
The rights of "Illegal immigrants" and associated topics is the allegory for the main arc so if you read fantasy to get away from the real world, be prepared for that as well. If you're
I wish they spent more time on that part of the story.
