The Pet Avengers must be a popular subject as Marvel has another series featuring the animal heroes in the works. Marvel sent Major Spoilers a sneak peek of Avengers vs. Pet Avengers #1, that you can check out after the jump.
AVENGERS VS. PET AVENGERS #1 (of 4) (AUG100574)
Written by CHRIS ELIOPOULOS
Pencils and Cover by IG GUARA
Earth’s Mightiest Heroes are downsizing. Literally. With Thor, Iron Man and Captain America mysteriously transformed into amphibians, can they possibly defeat a legion of dragons led by none other than Fing Fang Foom? Not without the help of Earth’s Mightiest Pets, Lockjaw and the Pet Avengers!
The $3.99 issue arrives October 20, 2010.
You are kidding me right?
This looks so cheesy it’s giving me gas.
I might check it out, though, because I do get a laugh out of seeing the “lighter” and humorous sides of the Marvel Universe.
Meh, the Pet Avengers was a cute idea that didn’t quite work out. I’d rather see the adventures of Lockjaw all by himself.
I think the art looks great and while I’m sure the story is stupid, I don’t know why but I like the idea behind it. Take those silly sidekick animals and make a team out of them. It’s simple and silly, but kinda funny if handled right. I’ve always wanted to see a cartoon that had a team-up of Snarf, Orko, Cringer, Needler (from Pirates of Dark Water), Blip, Gleek, and really insert your own favorite animal pal. Gloop and Gleep if you want, Avenger, Dyno-Mutt. I’d just like to at least see a poster of all these characters together but made to look all feral and vicious. But I’m partial to characters like that, I’m one of the few it seems who actually liked Scrappy Doo.
