Avengers/FF: Empyre #1 Plants the Seeds for a huge event

Originally, Avengers/FF: Empyre, which kicked off this week with problem #1, was going to be a much bigger event. however since of the Coronavirus pandemic as well as the quarantines, marvel Comics had to reschedule as well as rethink their entire line. As a result, a number of tie-ins are just gone. While it did make collecting the event a bit easier, the cancelations may suggest that Empyre was bigger than it needed to be. After reading the very first issue, however, it’s a pity that we won’t see the full-scale legendary that marvel meant to provide us. as well as Avengers/FF: Empyre #1 is just that: epic.

Avengers/FF: Empyre #1 focuses on huge Team-Ups, as well as bigger Threats

Back in Incoming, we saw Hulkling, the young Avenger, took up a sword that united the Kree as well as Skrull empires. as well as their target? Earth. Teddy Altman, that wonderful youngster Wiccan’s boyfriend, is now Emperor Hulkling. however it’s not just the Kree as well as Skrulls teaming up here. When the unified empires show up at the moon, the Avengers are there with the Cotati, a tranquil plant race. The Cotati are rebuilding their society, after a few thousand years, in the blue area of the moon. They are mainly defenseless against the coming invasion, aside from a resurrected plant-version of Swordsman (if you believe Hawkeye is lame, you haven’t satisfied Swordsman). The Avengers agree to assist them stand against the Kree/Skrull empire.

And then we have the great Four, heading house after rescuing two children, one Skrull, one Kree, who were required to fight over as well as over as well as over once again in a Casino. The great four is the most pacifist team in comics, so, of course, they instantly try to reason with Emperor Hulkling as well as the two empires. They’re type of on everyone’s side. It’s …cute. So, as the Avengers as well as FF look for fierce as well as non-violent methods to stop the Kree/Skrull invasion, we’re all looking at Emperor Hulking, wondering what’s going on in this kid’s head as well as if he’ll cave under pressure from four different factions.

If only the heroes had all the information.

Everything We understood about Empyre So far Was Misdirection

Some spoilers ahead. As specified above, all eyes are on Emperor Hulkling. Both the FF as well as Avengers believe that the Kree as well as Skrull leaders manipulated into playing his new role. perhaps he was, however part of his reasoning is sound. As he states in the picture above, he ended two wars as well as saved billions of lives by lifting up a sword. even if the two empires were exploiting his empathy, he’s still not wrong. But, then, why is he leading an invasion towards Earth? What does he have against the Avengers as well as the superheroes of a “backwater” planet?

Nothing. Teddy isn’t worried about Earth. It’s the Cotati. Yeah, those friendly sentient plant people. It turns out, after a few million years, the Cotati are type of pissed off at the genocide of their people. The Kree/Skrull empire was never coming for Earth—they were coming to stop the Cotati. But, since Tony Stark as well as the Avengers defended them, the Cotati were able to introduce their preliminary attack—and they plan to invade Earth, killing all non-plant life as well as making the world their new homeworld. great job, Tony!

The Avengers Vs. Kree/Skrull Forces battle is one of the Coolest area battles in Comics. Ever.

Let’s begin keeping that picture above. Ghost Rider turns the Quinjet into the Ghost Quinjet. He weaponizes penance gaze in a method that can only be professionally referred to as “f****** awesome.” Meanwhile, She-Hulk takes up a new weapon that assists channel her rage. Black Panther shows off his new spacesuit. Super-Skrull does some crazy combination of great four moves.

But it’s Hulkling who gets one of the most amazing moment:

Avengers/FF: Empyre #1 Is just the opening Salvo—There are Still five more problems as well as a great deal of Tie-Ins

The hardest part about starting huge is keeping up the momentum. For example, what if the MCU began with Infinity War. One, we would have no emotional investment, however two …it’s difficult to follow. between all the huge moments, it feels like Dan Slott, Al Ewing, as well as Valerio Schiti took all their toys out as well soon. The Ghost Quinjet feels like a final problem reveal, not the very first issue, particularly since the Kree take it down so early. Where will this story go over the next two months? And, again, marvel meant this to make this bigger.

Wherever it goes, I’ll go along for the ride.
