No fan can miss the blockbuster debut of an all-new Avengers team featuring members from all across the Marvel Universe…a team uniting Avenger and X-Man alike! But following the devastating events of Avengers VS X-Men, can Captain America pull together a team that can get along for its first mission? Plus, Uncanny Avengers #1 is the first title to sport the all-new Marvel NOW! cover design!

“We’re no longer going to be locked into where our logos are placed, which has traditionally been the top third of our covers, and we’re going to start to look at our covers with an eye towards strong design and commerciality above all else, explained Marvel Chief Creative Officer, Joe Quesada.  “What’s going to attract the reader’s eye, what’s going to make them want to buy that particular title? That’s the first question our artists and editors are going to ask themselves.”

Also! Every new issue with the Marvel NOW! branding comes packaged with a code for a FREE digital copy on the Marvel Comics app.

And that’s not all because readers will be able to take the Marvel NOW! experience even further by unlocking access to exclusive behind the scenes extras utilizing special augmented reality technology with the Marvel AR app powered by Aurasma. This is exciting bonus content that you cannot access anywhere else!

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but according to my dictionary, “Canny” means clever or shrewd. In other words, smart. So, I don’t care if you’re X-men or Avengers, being “Uncanny” means that you’re an idiot. I suspect this is yet another case where Stan Lee once named a comic book with an adjective that sounded like it might sell, but makes no sense if you actually consider the meaning of the word. Though the Idiotic Avengers sounds just as cool as the “Uncanny Avengers”. And what’s the augmented reality stuff? I thought those were what those “sandwiches” Matthew used to eat in college were for.

    • You are, in fact, incorrect.

      un·can·ny – adjective
      1. Having or seeming to have a supernatural or inexplicable basis; beyond the ordinary or normal; extraordinary: uncanny accuracy; an uncanny knack of foreseeing trouble.
      2. Mysterious; arousing superstitious fear or dread; uncomfortably strange: ‘Uncanny sounds filled the house.’

  2. Looks to me like Cassaday totally phoned it in on this one. The anatomy is waaay off and the foreshortening on everyone except Cap is just terrible. Not sure if there were deadline issues or what because he’s usually MUCH better than this.
