"Pain and heartache. This is the part of the story where the wheel of fortune turns and dumps the protagonist right in it. Things have been getting increasingly worse for Loki ever since he came back from the Tenth Realm, and now we're getting to the point of no return. Things are getting dark and unpleasant and shot through with horror in pretty much everything I'm writing at the moment - you'll see it coming up in Captain America & The Mighty Avengers, in Doctor Who, in Judge Dredd, like I'm flushing something out of my system - but arguably Loki has it worst of all. So that's something to look forward to!" -- Al Ewing

PART 1 OF 3 – THE START OF A THREE-PART AVENGERS EVENT!

Story by Al Ewing / Art by Alan Davis, Mark Farmer

500 years into the future, Ultron has won. Humanity is all but extinct - dead or enslaved by the Ultron Singularity.

Now, seven Avengers are brought through time by Doctor Doom to battle the machine god for the fate of the cosmos… or die trying!

Last issue, Loki was bound and gagged by his older self... are we sure this isn't the slash fic he admitted to writing back in issue 1?

Anyway, King Loki is explaining his plan, and he has some unusual names for some of the most recent adventures. Plus there's a marvelous call-back to Simonson's final issue.

Three panels from from this week's "Loki: Agent of Asgard" #12.

Context is... For Asgard! For Midgard! For Myself! )

'When "AXIS" and the relaunch came along, and Captain America turned evil, that seemed like a way to start down that road -- use the existential horror of that to set the tone for what was coming, and the month's break between "seasons" to establish a moment in time when everything might have gone horribly wrong behind the scenes.' - Al Ewing

'See, this is the thing about the whole Sam-as-Cap business - I'm about to do my "when I was a kid, Wally West was the Flash" speech here, but it's so important. There are going to be kids picking up their first Marvel comics over the next few months and Sam Wilson will be Captain America and they will think "wow, that's so cool". And they will never forget. I know I never forgot.' - Al Ewing

In the aftermath of AXIS, Loki is the Hero Of Asgard no more. But one change remains: The God of Lies can only ever tell the truth. Now, Loki’s brother, the Odinson, visits his apartment, to talk of cabbages, kings... and Kid Loki. This is it.

"The Inverted Avengers are almost the shells of super heroes -- stripped of everything that makes them what they are, all personalities reversed, only the powers remaining. Battle-board super heroes, existing only as sets of powers to play against one another. They're heroes of the abyss, hollowed out. And if that sounds like a horror story -- well, in practice, there might be a little more BIFF, BAM and POW, but if there's one overarching theme to the year ahead, it's horror." - Al Ewing

'I decided to lean heavily on the "Captain America" side of the title for #1, mostly for the simmering sense of dread as it becomes increasingly obvious that something's gone horribly wrong. But from here on, the whole team is involved -- in fact, next issue, we get a nice breath of fresh air as the non-inverted team members swing into action against a wild, outrageous and decidedly day-glo threat in the Mighty Avengers manner -- before we're back to the creeping awfulness of some terrifying opposite of your friend staring out at you through their eyes.' - Al Ewing

"I think it's good for Captain America, the concept, too -- much as I love Steve Rogers, the idea of Cap has to be bigger than just one person. If Captain America is the representative of the American Dream, there have to be different people in that uniform. Otherwise what's the point?" - Al Ewing

"To Doctor Doom, gods are to be overcome. I see Doom as someone who skim-read Nietzsche in college and decided that he is the Overman, that he's crossed the bridge that is humanity and overcome it. In his own eyes, he is, to all intents and purposes, a God - and we'll see that some of subjects feel the same way. So when he looks at Loki, who was born into godhood, there's the contempt the self-made man feels for the man who inherited his power." -- Al Ewing
