    Nah, I don’t think anyone thinks Wiccan’s going to be the new Sorceror Supreme. I imagine this arc is going to include a lot of Marvel’s magic based characters.

    I almost swore off reading new avengers after issue 50. On top of it costing so much, the cover blatantly lied to the readers, as did the description. It was one big slap in the face to the readers regardless of how good the issue was…but at least its not mighty avengers, which is a big ole steaming pile of crap

    Judging by that cover, Dr. Strange should appear in issue #56.
