The last Squadron Supreme series was atrocious. They really screwed up the Supreme Power universe, there. One day, they should make amends for this, by getting JMS and Gary Frank back and finish the series properly.
I can't see Hyperion working as well, n 616. He's kinda overshadowed by every other Superman analogy.

Hyperion sucks.

Hyperion suit looks stupid
126thst - 1/24/2013, 10:03 AM
This art sucks compared to the first 3 books.
BigDamnHero - 1/24/2013, 10:09 AM
Not really liking the art... But then again, in comparison to Opena almost all artists come off looking bad.

They can't make up their minds. They could have used Sentry, but they chose to use Hyperion (both of them Superman knock-offs). Which one will it be next?
DukeAcureds - 1/24/2013, 10:11 AM
It's Metal-diaper-man!
DukeAcureds - 1/24/2013, 10:12 AM
Loving the line "Surtur's sweaty orbs"!
NightForce - 1/24/2013, 10:24 AM
This art doesn't people are [frick]ing weird.
NightForce - 1/24/2013, 10:26 AM
"Almost all artists"? Are you high?
DrDoom - 1/24/2013, 10:42 AM
I actually like the art a lot, just not Hyperion.
marcvader1 - 1/24/2013, 10:58 AM
This art sucks? Really?

It's Adam "Effing" Kubert, how could his art ever suck?!
SuperSomething616 - 1/24/2013, 11:16 AM
@ DukeAcureds - i found that line brilliant as well lol
Equivocal - 1/24/2013, 11:22 AM
after finished reading Jonhatan Hickman's run on the Fantastic Four, (which is AMAZING!!!!)
I can't wait to see what's in store for The Avengers !!!

Not that I dislike the Kuberts, but I prefer Andy over Adam. And I prefer Jerome Opena over both of them, but given how dertailed his art is, I'm sure he can only get out a few issues at a time. I'd put him on an OGN if Marvel did such things.
Grimdeath - 1/24/2013, 12:00 PM
If they're going to use a superman knock-off, bring back the Blue Marvel.
plasticman - 1/24/2013, 12:05 PM
Why can't we see the return of Sentry?
fortycals - 1/24/2013, 12:12 PM
surtur sweaty orbs- best line ive read in a long time. Might get this just for that.
jimoakley666 - 1/24/2013, 12:16 PM
Adam Kubert is the man! I don't like Thor's new costume though. Just looks like he's wearing a t-shirt with a cape and some stuff. I'd like to see them go down the cool armour route like they have in the film. Something bulky and chunky. Not this cos-play silliness.
SpideyQuad - 1/24/2013, 12:32 PM
Hyperion is an awesome and underutilized character. The evil one is a jerk, but I like the good one.
thebearjew - 1/24/2013, 12:42 PM
last issue was a tad bit of a let down, i guess exnhilo wasnt so bad after all
thebearjew - 1/24/2013, 12:46 PM
also i have no idea who hyperion is i assume hes that guy with the atomic symbol on his chastitiy belt
marvel72 - 1/24/2013, 1:28 PM
definitely the best avengers book out at the moment,loved hyperion vs the hulk in issue 3.
DTor91 - 1/24/2013, 2:14 PM
Art looks great. People that are saying it sucks, get your heads checked. Seriously.

As for the Opena comparisons, it's two different styles. Opena's work is gorgeous, but Adam is a better storyteller, no question.
LordHuck - 1/24/2013, 7:10 PM

This is yet another new Hyperion from yet another alternate earth. Not any Hyperion we have seen before.

Art looks great.
RexDartEskimoSpy - 1/25/2013, 9:39 AM
I wish marvel would just quit it with the Superman Lites. Hyperion, Sentry, that guy who didn't know he was a Skrull. I'm sure there have been others. Mar-Vehl I guess, since he was a riff on the Shazam Captain Marvel who was a Superman knock-off too. And Marvel has the rights to Marvelman now, too... I get that it's fun to play with iconic mythology, but Thor is Marvel's Superman. The other guys lessen him.

AIM, on the other hand, I want to see used more. I hope they make an impression in the MCU. The Scientist Supreme has a stutter. Why? Is that important?
