The post war Marvel Universe begins here! The war is over!! Let the healing begin!! This all-new special written by Brian Bendis, especially for modern legend Marc Silvestri, debuts the all new IRON MAN, OMEGA FLIGHT, MIGHTY AVENGERS, NEW AVENGERS and with a special chapter written by Warren Ellis...THUNDERBOLTS! Each chapter is an important all-new prologue for each of these huge new series and sets up the radically altered landscape that makes up the post-Civil War Marvel Universe!
Reed Richards does a preliminary interview with Michael Pointer, aka The Collective. He is soon questioned by another man who asks if Xorn is in his body. He shows him the footage from when the Collective destroyed Alpha Flight. Pointer pleads to stop seeing the footage. He says that because he is a mutant that can absorb others' powers, he couldn't help absorbing Xorn and all the powers. He says he would do anything to make things right. That is just what the man wanted to hear. He then reveals himself to be Walter Langkowski, Sasquatch, the only survivor of Alpha Flight. Reed Richards designed a suit to control his powers. After he does some training, he will honor the memories of those he killed by becoming a member of Canada's new super hero team, Omega Flight.
Iron Man switches his cameras to watch the Thunderbolts take brutally bring in an unregistered hero named Hurricane. He never stands a chance.
Iron Man arrives at Stark Tower. He finds Ms. Marvel. She tells Stark about a run in she had with Spider-Woman. Ms. Marvel gave an assist when Spider-Woman was fighting the Grey Gargoyle. She tried talking Jessica into joining their side. Jessica asked how she could be with Stark since Captain America is dead because of her. Ms. Marvel tells her that he is not dead. She says that he is tucked away on the raft and that they are trying to save him as they speak. She also tells Jessica that Nick Fury could come work with them too. Jessica doesn't buy it. She knows Stark hates her. Carol allows her to leave. Stark is not happy with that decision. He says he'll have her arrested for treason if she shows up again.
Stark then talks to Jarvis. Jarvis tells him that both he and the world need the Avengers. With all the super heroes at his disposal, he has the opportunity to hand pick his team. Stark looks over his files to see who would be best suited.
