There is a bit of nice background information given on each of the members of the Warbound in some new flashback scenes that take place on Sakaar mostly before the events of Planet Hulk. Those scenes don't really tie into the main story, but they do give some new insight to the characters' personalities and histories.
Overall, the book was pretty average, and should be fairly enjoyable for anyone who likes the characters from Planet Hulk and wants to read more of them.

So apparently the Warbound are all hiding under the streets of NYC as SHIELD is hunting them. Later they are teleported from NYC to Gamma World in New Mexico where they fight The Leader and his minions.
They of course win but some of the humans can only see them for the "monsters" that they appear to be and not the saviors and heroes that they truly are. It's a little old and tired, but I guess if creatures like this showed up in the real world this is how we would view them, no matter how much good they did.
In the end the main SHIELD agent that was pursuing them turns into a super being of her own and is able to channel the "Old Power," like one of the Warbound can. which is pretty cool.
Another interesting part was that all through this, SHIELD has people interrogating Miek trying to get him to give them to get dirt on the Warbound to find their weaknesses. It's really good cuz this gives us more info on their back stories and we find out what drives these characters other than their undying loyalty to the Hulk.

This was pretty good and I'm glad I picked it up. The only thing that keeps it from being 5 stars is the fact that the Hulk is only on a few pages and in there he just shows up in the background and doesn't say anything.
Check it out!
advice: if its on sale for under $10 go for it. (I spent more money on a lot worse!)
