After Thundra's Guide to Picking up Men and Hyperion's Guide to Speed Dating, I give you Hyperion's Guide to Flirting with a waitress.
The first two extracts come from the excellent Hyperion: Daddy Issues mini series (which features exactly none of Hyperion's own children from Hickvengers) by Chuck Wendig, Ario Anindito and Nik Virella, while this is from the post-Secret Wars Squadron Supreme series by James Robinson and Leonard Kirk. Four pages from Squadron Supreme (2015-2017) #7

If you're tight on time and need to find love in a hurry, just remember Hyperion's Three Rules for Finding Love

  • Truth without compromise

  • Thought without error

  • All things for the betterment of the whole



This is from the time that Hyperion is discovering America by driving a truck across the country, with hilarious results, rather than co-parenting a bunch of genetically superior zebra children with Thor in the Savage Land.

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.

But Hyperion #5 sees him leave the carnival freaks behind and embark upon a very different sort of adventure )

If you want to find love the Hyperion way, remember these three basic rules
Truth without compromise
Thought without error
All things for the betterment of the whole

Let's hear it for them, the Squadron Supreme! The mightiest champions of humanity on now-extant Earth-712, a world blessed and cursed with but a fraction of the superbeings that roil the omniverse!

Twelve of the most spectacular beings in creation, who battle fiends and forces before which an ordinary person would be so much vapour! Though they come to the brink again and again, still they never break the trust their charges have in them!


Well, there was that ONE time... )

The talk about IDENTITY CRISIS led to talk about SQUADRON SUPREME. A backup story in WEST COAST AVENGERS ANNUAL #4, the "Saga of the Serpent Crown," gives a recap of an Avengers/Squadron Supreme team-up that ends with an ominous look at the future.
