WRITER: Brian Michael Bendis
ARTIST: Alan Davis

They were friends, brothers and teammates through all of Marvel's greatest adventures, but recent events turned them into the bitterest of enemies. In the wake of the Siege of Asgard Thor, Iron Man and Steve Rogers are brought together on the same side once more, but it's going to take more than a handshake and a smile to get these great heroes to truly trust each other again. This all-new, grand and dangerous adventure will catapult our heroes into the explosive Heroic Age and will unite comics legend Alan Davis with Avengers scribe Brian Bendis for the very first time.

As much as Marvel fans want to see Iron Man, Thor and Steve Rogers happily working together on the Avengers again, the characters have a lot of recent history that can't be ignored.
Avengers Prime: Siege Aftermath, a five-issue, bi-monthly mini-series by Brian Michael Bendis and Alan Davis, deals with the three "prime" Avengers and how they resolve their many differences. While the series will begin at the same time as other Avengers titles in June, the entire five issues take place before the first issue of The Avengers and the launch of the "Heroic Age," but after the events of Siege.
The story begins at the end of Siege as Iron Man, Thor and Steve Rogers find themselves in a different place in time, stuck there until they work together to get home. As they experience this displacement over the series' five issues, the three end up dealing with their rocky past in a way that avoids lots of talking heads, instead forcing them into an action-filled dangerous adventure while they also work through their differences.
Vice President, Executive Editor Executive Tom Brevoort, who guides the Avengers titles, told Newsarama that the "Siege Aftermath" part of the mini's title may actually be temporary, dropping down to just Avengers Prime later this summer, since it's only there to explain when and where the story takes place. As Newsarama readers know, there are four Avengers titles launching this spring, so the "Siege Aftermath" label is meant to differentiate Avengers Prime as its own, separate mini-series.
Newsarama talked with Brevoort about what motivated this five-issue series, why Alan Davis was brought on board, and whether this "place in time" is a familiar one

After the events of the “Siege”, which showcased the attack of the madman Norman Osborn with his force of “Dark Avengers” and H.A.M.M.E.R. upon Asgard, home of the Norse gods which resulted with its destruction; writer Brian Michael Bendis and illustrators Alan Davis and Mark Farmer (JLA The Nail) introduces the next era called the Heroic Age where instead of reforming “Shield”, Steve Rogers (the original Captain America) now the supreme commander of law …
Quick Tip by . June 12, 2011
Takes place after "Siege" and is closely linked to the Ragnarok storyline that happened in the final issues of Thor during "Disassembled". I've had some issues with Bendis' writing the Avengers in the past; not that they weren't good, but I felt that at times he lacked a little focus.      "Prime" is a buddy adventure at its core and can be predictable. However, the art by Davis and Farmer is more than enough to do the heavy lifting. …
