This issue is very much an "old school" Marvel comic, as it sets up a war between - of all things - the alien Shi'ar and Asgard.
There's just enough story and subplots to set the stage for a major throw down between the gods of Asgard and the Imperial Guard (which is Marvel's version / copy / homage to the Legion of Super-heroes).
So why are they at war? Ah, that would be telling - but at least we get a revelation thanks to that last page surprise!
Kudos to writer Jason Aaron and artist Russell Dauterman on crafting a terrific all-out action issue that gives the cast room to spread their wings and fight!
Lots of fun!
