Captain America is the moral heart of the Avengers in particular and the Marvel universe in general. In this story Cap is faced with the hard choice of saving our universe at the expense of other universes .In this choice Cap is opposed by Tony Stark AKA Ironman and the Illuminati Marvel universes cabal of the best and the brightest of which Cap was a member. This unnecessarily complex plot has the Illuminati having erased Captain America's memory of the creation of and membership in the group. On this weak foundation the whole story hinges. That would be almost ok but the readers are subjected to a series of tangentially related that subplots that obfuscate the main story.What saves the book from being totally worthless are the scenes where Cap debates with the Illuminati over the morality of their proposed actions. This redeems the story by encouraging the reader to think about morality of the use of weapons capable of annihilating. worlds and the complex choice of saving your own world at the cost of others. Caps journeys to the future also are compelling. They show the consequences of the Illuminati's actions and ask the question can beings from the future influence events of their own past? The story does not come to a conclusive decision on these questions, and sets the reader up for a probable Cap and Avengers battle with the manipulations of the Illuminati. Your classic brains versus brawn fight. ( )
