Uriel and Eimin’s master plan is almost completed, as there’s another Celestial on its way to destroy mankind, for the actions of the Apocalypse twin. Even though mankind is not at fault, the Celestial is still intent on destroying our world, as murder of his kin occurred somewhere nearby. Nonetheless, the Avengers  and many of Earth’s heroic figures are fighting to keep the planet safe, but it’s only a matter of time before they find out if they can actually take on one of these all-powerful beings.

Once more we find ourselves in a spot that makes it hard for us not to spoil too much of what this issue has to tell. Nonetheless, the battle with Uriel and Eimin rages on, and now Thor is involved, things are taking on ‘godly’ proportions. Thor is intent on retrieving his weapon, Jarnbjorn, which ended up being powerful enough to slay a Celestial. He hopes to retrieve the weapon in time, while parlaying with the immortal being, hoping to clear things up, sparing our luscious blue planet. If his plan doesn’t work, he’ll have to use brute force, and hopefully see the sun rise once more.

All while Thor battles in space, the Avengers, and other heroes are working together to contain the chaos that Earth is currently experiencing, all in combination with getting up a force field, which should be able to protect the planet from its impending doom.

The flow is quite rapid, as Earth’s superheroes are entangled in probably the biggest battle the planet has ever seen, and hopefully the aftermath ensures there is still an Earth to defend from future attacks. Overall things are clear enough for you to enjoy the intergalactic quarrel properly. Rick Remender and Gerry Dugan properly complete each other’s sentences and come up with an exciting tale.

Visually not that much has changed as the series does its best to paint a fairly realistic picture, in an unrealistic setting. Nonetheless, this bundle feels a bit more rugged and raw compared to the previous ones, as there are more sketch lines visible and facial features feel more weary than they usually are. The latter makes sure the horrible situation Earth finds itself in is properly emphasized. Colors have a dark tone, which again sets the proper atmosphere.


Uncanny Avengers #006 shows the outcome of a fierce battle for our Earth, which pretty much has you at the edge of your seat, hoping to learn more about the situation. Be prepared for a heap of action sequences in the foreground, and a new storyline slowly unfolding, which will hopefully connect the dots in the next omnibus.
