Previously in Heroes Reborn: The Avengers never formed, Phil Coulson is the President of the United States, and Mephisto is worshiped as a god. Something is very wrong here and only Blade remembers the world as it supposed to be. Blade has gathered a team of former Avengers which has attracted the attention of the Squadron Supreme of America!
A DARING FIGHT
Power Princess has gathered the Squadron Supreme together to talk about a new problem. She is aware of these “Avengers” and that their team must put away past differences in order to get to the bottom of the new threat. With Nighthawk at the helm directing the team, Hyperion heads to space to look for the missing Starbrand while Blur and Doctor Spectrum look at the iceberg where Blade found Captain America. After that, Power Princess and Blur meet with the Green Goblin and Doctor Spectrum scours Africa following the energy source of the Phoenix. This leads them to Wakanda for the very first time. Hacking into the defenses that protected Wakanda, they prepare for battle against the newly formed Avengers!
Heroes Reborn #7 also another story in which President Coulson talks to his Vice President Thunderbolt Ross and his Press Secretary J. Jonah Jameson. Coulson’s advisors think that the Squadron Supreme going against the Avengers will be bad and prepare to give them backup. However, Coulson pulls out a pistol and shoots both dead and prepares to tell the press that Wakanda sent assassins after him. He then talks to Mephisto himself, who promises him that Mephisto makes dreams come through. Coulson then pulls out a red Tesseract called the Hellahedron!
Heroes Reborn #7 did an amazing job of shining the light on each character and showing their personality. In previous issues, often they appeared to just be caricatures of the heroes they are trying to represent. Here we get the chance to really explore their personalities and get a better feel of who they are. In fact, in this issue they do not make them appear to be the monsters that they were made out to be. Certainly there is still an excess of violence, but it wasn’t honored or glorified. I also enjoyed these little flashbacks that showed a little bit of their history and gave a depth to the character. Things like Hyperion and Nighthawk fighting in a Civil War-esque event provides context for the nature of their relationship. Very cool ideas here.
Heroes Reborn #7 made it so the Squadron Supreme became relatable right before the big fight against this newly assembled Avengers. Which makes it feel like they are victims to Coulson and Mephisto’s scheme. Is this arc going to end with these two teams working together? I guess we will find out in the one-shot conclusion next week!
