    Yeah they kinda look like the Tron-version that were pubblished sometimes ago… I noticed it just now…
    So fear itself is Marvel-Tron with asgardian hammers?!? I won’t be surprised if the Serpent is a “Clu” version of Odin..

    The Worthy: I recognize most of the people in the pic, but I can’t seem to place the 2 women. Anyone know?

    The Mighty: So far, I can make out Ms. Marvel, Dr. Strange, Iron Fist, Iron Man, Wolverine, Hawkeye and Spider-Man. Don’t know who the girl with the huge sword (My guess: She-Hulk) or the person behind Hawkeye (can’t tell if it’s a girl or a boy) is. Any guesses?

      Red She-Hulk with the huge sword (to have the husband/wife beatdown all “good” dramas need), Black Widow/Mocking Bird/Shanon as the featureless last girl. For some reason I really want the last girl to be Maria Hill.

        i think girl with what looks like a “S” on her chest is probably Ms. Marvel. The other girl that appears to be behind what looks like wolverine I think is Kitty Pride. Due in part to Colossus becoming the new Juggernaut.

    My guess on the last figure is Black Panther. No idea why, just a guess.

      But it’s probably Spiderman. You can’t have Wolverine without Spiderman except in the X-men

            You can discern Black Panther from Spiderman by looking on his feet? Why, is he wearing special NikeAir or what?^^

    I’m annoyed at the implication that all this build-up of stuff is just going to lead to another “they power up and then THEY FIGHT!”

    Hopefully it plays out less cut and dried than that…

      Kinda doubtful, Michael.

      Quite frankly I have no idea how I’ll like the DC “relaunch” books but several of the “Flashpoint” mini-series have been a much better read than “Fear Itself”. Which is a bit dissapointing as I was hoping for something more from Marvel than what we’re seeing in their “three ‘events'”: Fear Itself, Spider Island (ugh!) and Schism. I will, however, return to full fledged Marvel fanboy mode while watching “Captain America: The First Avenger”.

      Yes, and hopefully as they start putting the beat down on the baddies, Rita Repulsa will yell out, “Make my monster GROW!” and throw her staff and then all the “Mighty” will have to get their Dinozords and it’ll just be a big ol’ smackdown.

    Fear Itself just seems to be a very, very, very simple story. It’s like Marvel is doing an old “Someone tries to take over the world!” story and is spreading it across as many titles as possible. They story itself seems like it could fit snugly into a four-part Justice League arc.
