In the years since the dawn of the dead, civilization has disintigrated and life has become all but extinct, leaving a hollowed-out shell of a world to be claimed by the shambling horde.

Mighty Avengers #5

They are the Mighty Avengers, the newest incarnation of the World's Mightiest Heroes... and while some aspects of this new team are coming together nicely, other areas could use a little work. For instance, the team is out of cash, their best prospect for a new HQ is an old movie theatre and the personal dynamics between the Superior Spider-Man and - uh, well, everyone else in the group - leave a lot to be desired. Fortunately for the rest of the team, Luke Cage can address one of those problems straight away!
