I don't understand the complaints about Hyperion being too powerful and the Sentry comparisons. He hasn't done anything yet that's "too powerful", nor is he a lunatic, yet. He seems basically around the same power level as Gladiator, Blue Marvel, Thor, Hulk, etc.

Also, I agree with your assertion: this is the best Avengers in years!
My Pick of the Week:
This Week (02/06/2013): New Avengers #3
Last Week (01/30/2013): Mara #2
Unnecessarily strong...he's not a god & not even a cosmic being but he cud do such a feat?I'm fine with Hyperion and how strong he is, but he is ridiculously strong.
We all already know dat dis Hyperion is d resident deux-ex-machina 4 Hickman & expect hyper-PIS reasons explaining Hyperions absence when he is needed by d team..
Now yes, holding apart two wolds even for a short time is very impressive and you could argue too powerful, but I doubt he will ever be doing things like that regularly in the book. It just seems like a very dramatic and vague origin story. There's no reason to assume Hulk or Thor or Surfer couldn't do the same when they're at their maximum.
That said, there's nothing so far that suggests the Illuminati will accomplish anything. I'm not sure how these new characters or the destruction they've caused would be related to the incursion(s).

"Extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice!"
Fiction is a fickle thing. It all depends on the next word that is written.
"There is a very short period of harmonic alignment, which is what allows the two Earths to exist in the same space"
This lasts for eight hour, then both Earths smash together and both universes are wiped out, unless one Earth is destroyed which spares both universes.
And Hyperion can hold them apart because comicbook science. It's just like how having a gamma bomb exploding in close proximity to you makes you turn into a giant green monster with infinity strength, or being bitten by a radioactive spider gives you superpowers etc.
