The Illuminati, a secret cabal of the Marvel Universe's greatest minds, was brought together to protect the world from the threat of multiversal armageddon. But to save our universe, Iron Man, Dr. Strange, Mr. Fantastic, Namor, The Black Panther, The Beast and Black Bolt would have to do the unthinkable. No secret stays buried forever and Steve Rogers discovers the shocking secrets Stark and his secret inner circle been keeping.
Although he is not on the cover Thor has a substantial role in this issue with an equal amount of well-written dialogue and well-drawn brawling.
