Avengers by Jonathan Hickman: The Complete Collection Volume 3 collects “The Infinity Event” and all of its tie ins with the main Avengers titles so there are two distinctly separate but connected wars. Captain America leads most of the Avengers into space alongside a coalition of Alien races to confront the Builders. The Builders are a hostile race of Aliens who are killing everyone on entire worlds as they rampage on a bloody path to Earth. With most heroes off Earth, Thanos and his Black Order goons attack. It is up to Iron Man and the Illumanti to stop him.
While most characters get the spotlight at least once, I think the best moments in this volume are by Thor, Black Bolt, and Black Panther. Each character has intense and epic moments. Since this is a book consisting of mostly wars, there are large scale battles which result in a lot of action and are very colorful.
I still think someone should have put in editor’s note to explain things for folks not up to speed. For example, why does Iron Man have a new armor in this volume? Readers who have not read the previous books are going to be confused as that is never addressed. There are other situations like this as there were in the preceding book. Despite the minor nitpicks, Avengers by Jonathan Hickman: The Complete Collection Volume 3 is awesome and I highly recommend it.
