When Jonathan Hickman took over the Avengers he added to the team, among other people, Hyperion of Earth 13034. The only survivor of an incursion, Hyperion was brought to Earth 616 by AIM scientists. He became a father figure to the Zebra kids of the savage land and bearded drinking buddies with Thor. The two of them died at the edge of the universe before Secret Wars.This is yet another parallel universe Hyperion. This is not King Hyperion, or Supreme Power Hyperion, this is not Gruenwald's Hyperion. This is Hyperion without all that baggage. This is Hyperion with a fresh slate, for a very specific purpose. He comes out of what the big story is behind the whole Avengers three-year plan that I have. He's very important, very pivotal, and I think people are really going to dig where we go with that. He's not going to be our poor analogue for Superman.
Post secret-Wars, Hyperion is travelling across America as a truck driver. He's used his artic as a baseball bat to beat up some super-powered carnival freaks, rescued an alien held captive and picked up Doll, a runaway teen.( Meet Marc Milton )( But Hyperion #5 sees him leave the carnival freaks behind and embark upon a very different sort of adventure )
