Power-mad Norman Osborn thought he was a match for the might of Earthbound Asgard. He was half-right: The reassembled Avengers drove him back, but the Realm Eternal lies in ruins. In the wreckage, former Captain America Steve Rogers, Iron Man and Thor find themselves squabbling over old wounds. As they quarrel, unstable magics cast the heroes-at-odds into the scattered Nine Realms. Separated, and with no clear path home, they quickly realize the world in which they're trapped is not how it should be. Have their actions somehow caused a rift in the natural order? Can they come together and put it right? Their bittersweet reunion may be short-lived, with Hela - Norse Goddess of Death - waiting in the wings!

Better than I would expect, given my general disdain for the writer, but it's the artist who elevates this. In the aftermath of Siege, the big three of the Avengers are pulled into a nightmare world where they have to set aside their differences and work together. Bendis lessens his tendencies to write endless dialogue with characters parroting his own voice- a huge problem for him- though it does turn up from time to time. And there are the odd moments that play into his usual ignoring continuity fallback, such as characters having to clarify terms or people they've certainly known before. Those tend to be the exception, rather than the rule as is so common with most of Bendis' writing, where continuity is thrown right out the window, even his own. Alan Davis makes this worthwhile. His artistic style is dynamic and bold, perfectly suited for the three Avengers and the mystical world they find themselves in. If a mediocre artist had been involved, it would have been a far less involving miniseries.
