Who is Bob Reynolds? Who is the Sentry? And does he really have the power of a million exploding suns? Tony Stark needs answers to these questions if he hopes to recruit the man who might potentially be the most powerful hero on the planet into the Avengers. Meanwhile in Long Island, Dirk Garthwait finds his costume and crowbar and after a quick wardrobe change the mild-mannered meathead transforms into the evil Agardian-empowered villain The Wrecker, who once fought Thor to a standstill.

Looking for a comic with tons of action, cute babies, pretty ladies and a super hero wedding? Look no further folks!

Before Luke can kiss the bride and tie the knot, he and his teammates need to take her down!

Maya Lopez, known in certain circles as Echo, has been dispatched on a mission from Captain America himself to scour the seedy underbelly of Japan’s underworld, gathering information for the Avengers as the masked vigilante Ronin.
