To battle the Brethren! Thane Ector and his allies devastated the Collector – and now they’ve come for Earth. And to stop them, the Avengers must call in reserves, returnees – and a new recruit! But will the humbled Elder of the Universe aid Earth’s Mightiest, or renew his collection obsession? Hate may conquer all when the Sons of the Serpent strike – unless the Avengers and New Warriors can do something about it! But how will our heroes react when a fallen comrade seemingly returns? Plus, the Subterranean Wars rage, and the Vault prison becomes a deathtrap filled with deadly menaces – including Venom!
