7.5

I dunno, I like this comic, but the reusing of the same plot feels kinda cheap. Like apparently anyone can beat Avengers and wield Mjollnir nowadays.
Also most antagonists of this book are heroes/anti-heroes like: Loki (well, not a complete good guy, but anti-hero/anti-villain who was on the side of angels during the time of first story arc), Namor, Phil Coulson, Squadron Supreme, The Winter more
