Avengers World #1, a flagship for the whole All-New Marvel NOW launch and a collaboration between Jonathan Hickman and Nick Spencer, wastes no time in getting right to the action. First off, the tepid relationship between the Avengers and SHIELD is straining under the gleam of the public eye. Captain America and his team are not used to shilling for the press, but SHIELD is demanding it. To make matters worse, new SHIELD director Maria Hill exists to make sure everyone knows who is in charge.
The Earth has fallen under attack. Not from the Terrigen Mists being dealt with in Avengers, New Avengers and Inhumanity. No, this is something much different. Meteorological and seismic disturbances, driven by an unknown source, are causing mass destruction across the planet. The city of Mardipoor is burning under riots from its own people. In a small town in Italy, the entire population has vanished, and whatever took them leaves the Avengers a bizarre calling card. As if that wasn’t enough, the new leader of The Hand is stirring up trouble. Multiple problems, on multiple fronts, stand before the Avengers.
