All-New All-Different Avengers #10 Review by (June 9, 2016)
Kamala was secretive about her civilian id, but now the whole team seems to know it.

Thor's hammer was used to power a warp drive in the same way in Avengers #96 during the Kree/Skrull War. Howver in that case the machinery seemed to be holding the hammer in place, but the male Thor seemed to have to keep his hand on it to keep the power flowing. Anyway I don't think either Thor would get tired holding the hammer up for a long time.

So, contrary to what I said in Uncanny Avengers #9 (over in the Cap Library), Jan isn't completely retired from superheroing.

Annihilus was last seen killed in Thanos: The Infinity Finale GN. However it isn't clear when that was set, or even if it can be made to fit into the timeline of the base Marvel Universe. But he has made post-Secret Wars appearances in #1,5 of Guardians Of The Galaxy.


Synopsis / Summary / Plot

All-New All-Different Avengers #10 Synopsis by Rob Johnson
The Avengers are travelling in a spaceship whose warp engine is powered by Thor's hammer, which she has to keep held in place because no-one (and no thing?) else could. (Tony Stark got it cheap from a sale of Mr Fantastic's old stuff - cheap because it had no power source.) Ms Marvel and Spider-Man are awestruck to be in space, but equally-young Nova is of course blasé about it. (Tony told Kamala Khan's parents that she was going on a science field trip.)

They are on a mission to find Sam Alexander's father Jesse, who was also a member of the Nova Corps. They are using a system to detect energies similar to those of Sam's helmet. Since they appear to be searching the whole galaxy, Vision's statement that their chances are slim is an understatement. But they do get multiple hits in multiple distress calls in multiple alien languages from the same planet.

When they attempt to land at the source of the messages their craft is shot down by a beam from a tower. Captain America (Sam Wilson) takes charge and sends Iron Man and Thor to investigate the tower. He and the rest land among many aliens. Vision can communicate with 1 of them and learns that they were all shot down. And no-one who enters the tower ever comes back.

The tower shoots at the 2 approaching superheroes. Thor (Jane Foster) offers to draw its fire (using Mjolinr to deflect the beams) while the Golden Avenger continues in stealth mode. When he gets close he detects that the weapon is powered by a metal bracelet that looks familiar. But then he gets shot.

On the ground Nova hasn't found his father. But Vision has learned that once a day an energy being appears and abducts victims. And the time is now. Nova and Vision attack the being with no effect. Spider-Man and Ms Marvel grab abductees with web-line and extended arm, and Cap flies them to safety. But suddenly Kamala herself is pulled towards the being's mouth-hole. Thor sees this and throws her hammer to pull the teen out of danger. And Iron Man joins in the general rescuing.

We take a break with Jarvis in his sports car in New Jersey. He's taking Nadia Pym, the new Wasp, to meet her stepmother Janet Van Dyne, the original Wasp. On the way they have a breakdown but Wasp shrinks into the engine to fix things, including supercharging it. But when they get there Jan is heading out by helicopter to defuse a bomb that "threatens to swallow the East Coast into the Microverse". She takes Nadia along - they can chat on the way.

Iron Man detects that the mouth is actually a portal to elsewhere. Vision has learned that the beast has a fixed number of victims per day. So Cap proposes the team go through to save others from suffering the fate. Nova agrees because his dad might be in there. They pass through a region of distortion and all pass out.

When MsM revives she sees Nova and Spider-Man (Miles Morales) with glowing handcuffs walking in a line of other prisoners. She looks down and sees cuffs on her own wrists, but she shrinks out of them. The others try to warn her what will happen, and she's grabbed by a giant (but only relative to her shrunken size?) hand belonging to Annihilus.
