The Marvels 007
> The final member of the assault team is in place – or are they? – and the assault on Siancong begins. Witness all-out action against the forces of Lady Lotus, plus a look at what the citizens of Siancong (and Melinda May) have been through under the dome. And a shocking revelation from the all-new Warbird! And things get stranger...

Wow. SO MUCH MORE engaging than last issue's origin dump! This was a fun Event-like multi-franchise team-up against the revamped country-buster Lady Lotus. Mr.Busiek brings in representation from The Avengers, The FF, The X-men, The new Agents of Atlas, Spider-man's Black Cat and Tinkerer, a mysterious/maybe new Warbird, SHIELD-TV's inspired Melinda May, and last but certainly not least updating MU's original Golden Age Vision! So much to consider (and/or catch up on). It was so good to see potential-positive Aarkus again after, like, over 10 years and intriguing to see his legacy heirs introduced. All the heroes came across as in-character and saw satisfactory share of facetime. Only got into this mini last issue, so still unclear on Johnny Storm being cured of perma-flame but it didn't impact the enjoyment at all. Nor the anticipation for next ish.

Can anyone do quick recap of the highlights to behold from #1-#5?

I didn't know this existed, but your comments induced me to buy the TPB collecting issues 1-5.

The upcoming multiverse story line in the MCU makes me think that at least some of what Busiek does in this maxi-series will have staying power.
