Noh-Var Is the Star - Nawfalq
Noh-Var is a Kree - therefore he utilizes technology beyond the capability currently possessed on Earth. This is how this fellow, known in the Avengers as the Protector, locates AIM scientists. The Avengers act upon this intelligence and attack the AIM base. This part of the issue is good setup and background so that the last half of the issue does not seem to come out of nowhere. The last half, of course, depicts the threat of the Phoenix Force headed toward Earth. The issue is well-written from a storyline standpoint and any reader should be able to jump right in and have good understanding of the situation. Because of this, the issue also has a hint of that vintage comic book feel to it.
