  1. Jeez, are there like 40 members of Secret Avengers? I’m starting to think there will be one of these every day until May. I’m eager for the Howard the Duck silhouette.

  2. Notice this is the first poster that adds the iamanavenger.com web address… I guess they are happy with the awareness this guessing game is creating and are going to make a whole site…

    Link automatically forwards to marvel.com right now though :(

    • No shield. No headwings. Seems to have strappy-wristed short gloves, some kind of vest or harness, combat boots, and that pouch on the right thigh which doesn’t look like a holster. Plus the ultra-confident stance and the quote. There’s no sign of hair, meaning he’s got some kind of Cap-like cowl, but I’m thinking you’re right. Not Captain Bucky, but Steve.

      • I like this idea… He’s not “Captain America” since he gave Buck the shield, but some sorta derived new i.d. would be slightly neat. “The Patriot”, or maybe just “The Captain”? (No, not the guy from NextWAVE, but I would squee like a schoolgirl if it was him.) I’d suggest Nomad, but that Rikki Barnes girl has that one at the moment, and I kinda dig her groove.

      • I don’t think it’s a pouch, I think he has an enormously huge right thigh. Maybe it’s Batrok the Leaper, shouldn’t he have huge leg muscles?

    I’m surprised at all th people guessing Luke Cage, since Marvel already said he’s heading up the new Thunderbolts.

  4. No question, it’s the original captain america, look at the “i am an avenger” picture, and that cap is holding a gun and so proves that version is the “bucky cap”, so this leaves way for this to be the “steve rogers Cap” as only one person can hold the shield at a time lol.
