    that would be cool if that was a revamp of the characters seen in the movie with Ben Stiller.

        No, that was IN a theater…not in a movie. Thanks for bringing up a mental image that I had purged from my brain years before. Of course, the skit with Jim Carey and the “Pee Wee Herman Doll” with the special action grip was priceless.

    The Spleen.

    Maybe they’ve got a story about vigilantes in a real world setting where society is at it’s tipping point.

      And they’re all successful business people in LA trying to balance their regular life with their fight against crime. Yeah, that’s the ticket.

    Matthew would know for sure but I think this is a revamp of some Golden Age characters.

    The one in the back definitely resembles The Fin… Otherwise, I got pretty much nothin’.

    If it is a revival of 1940’s characters, they’d better follow through this time. I can’t be the only one pissed that “The Twelve” hang-fired 3/4 of the way through a murder mystery. Ain’t been that ticked about an unfinished story since Alan Moore’s “1963”.

    Isn’t the second one left to right Dr. Nemesis, who has been feature in some obscure X-Men related group? And the third _must_ be The Fin.

    i agree with R.J.O. we were left hanging with the twelve, then they even promised to finish after the one shot: the twelve: spearhead. boo marvel. for shame. they should finish it and sell for a discounted price for all their bull.

      For the record that had nothing to do with Marvel, it was JMS not fulfilling the last bits of his time at Marvel before leaving.

    I think the one on the far left might be the Thunderer. That would line up with the Fin. I gotta say I like the art. As teasers go this one has teased me!
