Avengers Forever 8

What is Avengers Forever about anyway?

At last! Things are explained, in what is perhaps the most important issue of Avengers Forever.

First, the Vision and the Human Torch. Back in the golden age, Marvel was called Timely and the big three heroes were the heart of the Invaders: Captain America, Namor and the Human Torch. For a long time it was the Torch and Namor, fire and water, who fought it out. Cap and the Submariner remain pillars of the Marvel Universe. And the Torch? He's been remade into the Vision. Right? Yes. The Vision was the original Human Torch. Mystery resolved.

Next, its revealed that Immortus is an agent of still more powerful time beings known as the Time Keepers, whose agenda Immortus serves.

Then we have the Scarlet Witch. Revealed as some sort of nexus being who is fated to have children so powerful that they'll be on the level with the Cosmic-class beings of the 616 universe. For some reason this is unacceptable to the Time Keepers and Immortus has been working to prevent such offspring from happening. In fact, Immortus has been messing with Avengers history for a long time.

For someone unfamiliar with the Avengers this is still an enjoyable issue. Heck, it's an enjoyable issue even if you don't read it thanks to the Pacheco art. But Avengers aficionados will truly enjoy this one as it will leverage there existing familiarity with the history of Earth's Mightiest Heroes.
