First Look: AVENGERS #34.1

Hyperion takes the center stage.

This September, the supremely powerful Hyperion takes center stage in the oversized AVENGERS #34.1 – an exciting new solo story from critically acclaimed creators Al Ewing and Dale Keown! Last son of a dead utopia and sole survivor of a world decimated by Incursions. Father figure to a new species of life thriving in the Savage Land. He is an Avenger, and so much more. Now, the Man From Nowhere seeks justice upon an unhinged cop killer, the safe return of a kidnapped child – and perhaps answers to the questions that haunt him deep inside. Why was he brought here? What purpose does he serve in our universe? The answers can be found this September in the Hyperion-centric AVENGERS #34.1!

AVENGERS #34.1 (JUL140624)

Written by AL EWING

Art & Cover by DALE KEOWN

Variant Cover by CHRIS BACHALO (JUL140625)

I know he has his own backstory and such, but everytime I see Hyperion I can't help but think "Auburn Superman".

Dale's art always impresses

I just love how marvel fans always love clones of Superman in marvel but hate Superman.

Edited by Dedpool

I'm just happy Blue Marvel is getting some stuff too. They have these all powerful characters and are scared to do anything with them. Hyperion and Adam should team up lol.

Agreed.

I was gonna say inb4 "Superman clone" comments,but I'm too late.

I was also going to say inb4 DC fans,but I'm still too late.

@lensnart: look at that T-Rex arm he is reaching out to that kid with.LOL

How many fake supermans does marvel have? hyperion, blue marvel, gladiator, sentry, sungod...they all suck ! marvel has so many cool heroes it's pathetic to keep creating fake supermen. none of these fakes could sustain a regular series

Looks good I like Hyperion can't wait.

Posted by cameron83

Ah,they have arrived.

Prepare for Hyperion bashing from DC/Superman fans.

Posted by Overlander

Did somebody say Dale Keown interiors? You had my attention. Now you have my interest.

Posted by Thor_Parker82

The art looks great

Posted by LenSnart

@rainja: yeah, hyperion looks kinda weird, but I just like the composition and energy of it honestly

Posted by MaccyD

If any of these "haters" actually read anything with Hyperion in it, they'd know he's a far different character from Superman.

Posted by ShadowSwordmaster

I know that the art is going to be good.

That's unfair guys. Just because Superman exists it doesn't mean Marvel or any other company can't have another superpowerful, capewearing, strong image character. That's very short sided guys.

@micah: The difference is, Hyperion literally is inspired by Superman. The entire Squadron Supreme are copies of the JL, he's one step away from parody.

I'm late to the party with Hickman's avengers but i'm really enjoying the stuff now. Can't wait to learn more about Hyperion, he seems an awesome hero.

Posted by neiliusprime

Hyperion's gold underwear kinda creeps me out lol.

Aside from the Superman jokes, I actually like this version of Hyperion. I don't think the character is that bad.

Posted by medulaoblaganda

i like this Hyperion, i don't care if he is a rip off. there are also rip off in dc. doomsday is hulk rip off.

Posted by tensor

@medulaoblaganda: Doomsday and Hulk is not the same.Hyperion even have some of superman feats.Hulk and Doomsday are no way the same.Two different character.Namor would have been a better choice for aquaman.

I can understand that, but I think he's become his own character at this point. I don't agree with Blue Marvel, Sentry, and Gladiator being ripoffs. They may be made in his mold but their no copies.

Nah, I got no problem with the others, I actually like Sentry and Gladiator, as for Blue Marvel, I don't know enough about him. But I can't help but see Superman everytime I see Hyperion, lol.

LOL, yeah I can see that.

Posted by Darkseid_Prime

Awesome can't wait for him to be a bigger, cooler, and more popular hero ONLY to have Marvel say "NOPE! Better have Hulk and Thor whip his ass so our main properties are secure." Makes me miss Sentry when he was rockin it only to have him swept under the rug for being too awesome...

i think i've read everything ever with hyperion in it......he's no superman that's for sure lol

I can't understand how people dont see hyperion especially as a rip off...look at the inspiration of the squadron supreme expained on this very site http://www.comicvine.com/squadron-supreme/4060-40479/ it says this exactly -

Squadron Supreme is Marvel's version of DC Comics' Justice League of America." lol

@dedpool: Dear God they would be unstoppable. You could imagine Galactus getting out of that void he's in, returning to Earth 616, seeing those two, and calmly just floating away like "Yeah you know what I'm good"

Have you read Supreme Power?

Posted by Boynerdgeek

I don't know why but seems like Avengers comics written by Hickmann is not my cup of tea. I love The Avengers movie but for some reason I can't get into Avengers comics. I prefer X-men and Spidey comics better. It is weird that despite Avengers have great live action movie but they never in top 10 comics sales every month. Meanwhile Justice League never have live action movie but every month is consistent among top 10 most comics sales

@micah: yes i have read it

of course i've read it ...its like superman but his parents are actors hired by the gov't to raise him in controlled enviorment because the "ma and pa kent" of that story were killed by black ops shortly after they discovered him the crystal that gives dr spectrum (marvel's fake GL) his powers came from hyperions ship ..ect yeah i know there are differences but its still a twisted superman origin

That's why I love it. I like this version of Hyperion but wish the Supreme Power version came to the 616 Universe.

You ever hear of Earth 8?

I never heard of Earth 8, but that's shocking. I didn't know DC basically copied the Marvel Comics Universe.

Posted by DrThanos91

I look forward to this,also How is Blue Marvel a rip off of Superman???,why is everyone making superman ripoff jokes,its redundant,I personally don't like superman,but I respect his heroic feats and at first Hyperion back in the day was just like superman,but this Hyperion is what I feel marvels attempt at changing him,I think its working in a good way

and some one said a Hyperion/Blue marvel team up,I would love to see that!

Posted by OmgOmgWtfWtf

Hyperion is too cool for school.

Is everybody forgetting about champions of angor

I just learned about that LOL.

Posted by Silver Zeal

So just whn Ewing was doing sooo well devlping BM in MightyAvngrs, Marvel nw grabs him & has him write Hyperion, dis xcter dat is featuring in 2 ongoing avengers titles written by 2 diffrnt writers & now 3 with Ewing.

Yes, we/SZ know dat Ewing is still on MA BUT...

Is Marvel slowly trying 2 bury BM in favor of dis nu Hyperion? R dey sooo desper8 4 anothr whyt supaman? Anothr Sentry?

Will Hickman or Spencer also write a MA #.1 focusing on BM in return? Of course not. We/SZ highly doubt it.

B4 u knw it Hyperion will b getting a solo series b4 BM...U JUST WAIT.

Posted by mosesmoses

@maccyd: read his bio. They admit he is Marvels superman...j.s

Posted by medulaoblaganda

@tensor: the point is i don't give a flip if he is a rip off or not, as long as he has a good comic run. wait and see writers start giving him much credit like hulk , Thor, and wolverine.

Posted by Tfs229

I really want a buddy comic with Hyperion and Thor

Posted by JamDamage

Best thing about Hyperion is his name.

Posted by savagepizza

@micah: its funny cuz I just learned about them like a week ago
