  1. Starks Scraps on

    Say what you want about this team but it has Medusa, Dr Strange, and Deathlok. That’s pretty amazing.

  2. JasonLeclair on

    should be interesting. I actually will pick it up for the team interactions, there are some pretty big personalities in there that might clash. Like Angela and Medusa i can see some friction there.

  3. Whoever wrote that press release needs a refresher. Sam Wilson has been active as a superhero, often against many of the main Captain America foes, since the late 1960s. Calling him “untested” at this late date is a head-scratcher, and hints that the current editorial is not very familiar or appreciative of their own characters. Which is probably the truth.

    That said, this can be an interesting team to follow, I suppose. I wonder why they call them “Avengers”, though. I know I do not.

  4. Oh, and that bit about Tony “releasing his dark side” better be meant as irony. Some of us remember Civil War still.

    Granted, it has been seven years already, but come on. Our current plotlines are still very direct descendants of those that led to Civil War.

    • Frank Castle on

      Frankly, I hated how both sides were displayed in Civil War, enough that I haven’t really followed the Avengers or much of Marvel’s heavy hitters since. I dipped my toes back recently….but I guess that will be enough for a few more years (seeing how long stories build these days).

  5. “ALL NEW” as in two retreads and a lot of old members mixed together? We must be using different dictionaries. You know that any superficial changes will only be temporary because otherwise they’d either have to field a different set of Avengers for the movies or waste a movie explaining all the changes. Not that incongruities have ever stopped Marvel from fielding three or four different sets of Avengers at any one time in the comics.
