      You dont judge on what you dont think you can do better and so should we? Do you use that same idiot logic when you are buying a car or even a pizza? That is the dumbest comment I have ever heard.

      I cant stand this artwork!! Isnt knowing how to draw a human face sort of important? Make mine DC till Marvel gets Bendis' head out of its butt.

      I don't know what you guy's are talking about, i kinda dig his artwork. I don't judge on what i don't think i can do better, and you probably should do the same.

      Steve Rogers running SHIELD? Sounds interesting. But who would be on his team?

      I think Bucky will be Captain America until a story when he'll die or will almost die. Then, Steve'll take Cap Again.Mmm, this will happen close Cap America Movie Release.

      When writers create a new team, they sometimes put a couple of duds on the team. I expect the avengers will have the upmost characters we'd expect to see, but I expect to see those duds there too.

      I pray that Steve remains Captain America. Buckey can be a teacher at Avengers Academy or Cap's sidekick again.

You're right. Rereading the New Avengers, Buckey sure does make a good Captain America, but I figure they'll give back over to Steve.

      [quote@CapLivesOn BAAAH! Just found it....Oh well...so much for changes. Sorry to have doubted you, CloakedDagger. Well, at least this team gets to flex it's "Heroic" muscle in the open.This is from Boscoe in the Secret Avengers thread:http://comicartcommunity.com/gallery Click on "See all new images" then locate Avengers #1.OrClick on "John Romita Sr and Jr" in the artist index.[/quote] Sorry to burst bubbles, but that is a 'Heroic Age ' variant that just happens to represent the 5 most popular Avengers, right about now. The 'The Avengers' line up was announced sans Wolvie and Spidey but they may appear in the book. Those two will be 'New Avengers' (if anyone is still following this thread. That artwork was not an announcement.

      I think the last Hulk book(where Banner helps save the Avengers from Red She Hulk) possibly shows you who the Avengers team is. It looks like Steve Rogers in Caps uniform, so if you haven't read that book yet, you might want to take a peek at it.

      Just saw a sneak peek of Avengers #1 cover, showing Spider-Man and Wolverine, can't believe these two are going to be on the sanctioned public Avengers team. Just hope Ms. Marvel gets to stay too, then this will be thee most badass Avengers team ever created.

Are you maybe convoluting the article about the new Astonishing line expansion? If what you're saying is true.. *Groan*.. I like Spidey, but could use less Wolvie. Was hoping a few more of the old guard would make it on the team.

      I don't really mind Bendis, I like most of his stuff, it's JRJR that I do not like... it's almost painful sometimes for me to look at them :/ but regardless I will be getting this book and despite my dislike of JRJR's art, I am excited. I'm happy to see Bucky and Spider-woman. Thor and Iron Man weren't really surprises, but I'm glad they're there too. And of course, seeing Hawkeye brings a smile to my face.However, I do hope there are more on the roster, particularly Pym, Mockingbird, Ms. Marvel and I hope Spidey and Wolverine make it to either this team or the Secret Avengers or something

      Why is Cap. holding a WWII German side arm as a gun???? Looks like he is wielding a Luger 9mm which was made as an officers side arm for the Germans in WWII.

      I was never a really big fan of Romita JR's. I think his art worked okay for WW Hulk. But mostly because his chunky, kind of old-looking style worked with the Hulk's character. But if you really investigate his art it's obvious that he doesn't compose the page very well. Everything's just kind of stuck in there. Check out Alex Maleev's great compositions in comparison. Maleev uses convincing perspective and everything isn't just centered on the frame. JRJR's anatomy works okay with big muscly male characters but the female figure just looks unappealing. The girls don't look feminine and lack the subtlety required to make the figure look convincing. He needs to take some basic composition and figure drawing classes. One might think that its just his illustrative style, but composition and figure drawing are the most basic aspects of comicbook illustration. If this really is a brand new Marvel Age and if Marvel is looking into the future and if this is going to be the only Avengers title, then I feel JRJR isn't the best choice out there. For the forward thinking and progressive attitude Marvel is trying to present I feel like Adi Granov's super sleek and modern style would be far more appropriate. Or Steve McNiven's detailed and smooth pencils would have been great. Djurjivik's grandiose and monumental forms would have been awesome too. All in all, I am pretty disappointed with John doing the art for one of my favorite comic title.

      Wow...I guess I overestimated JRJR's appeal to the comics-loving world. I don't get it. JRJR has been one of the most consistenly great artists in comics. I remember his great run on Amazing Spidey back in the 80's. His work is as vibrant and appealing now as it was back then. Just be glad that the clouds are parting finally and we're getting the old gang back together again. AVENGERS ASSEMBLE!

      Both Bendis and JR Jr earned thier stripes . I think this is gonna be a great comic. Bendis is one of the best writers ever. Can't wait to see who on the Avengers. :cap: :dead:

      [quote@ebellavita77 Not surprised with Thor, I don't know how anybody could down Bendis....he just killed off one of his best characters for the past 2 years, and didn't kill, but I'd say destroyed another one, 2 of the most powerful characters in the MU are pretty much done for. Now Siege has caught my eye. That scene will not be removed from my head for years to come.....great writing and artwork guys. Just need to see Ms. Marvel and Pym, would love one other surprise character hopefully She-Hulk.[/quote] That fight was awesome tho, wasnt it!!I agree that the dead character was one of Bendis' best of the past few years, and Im gutted that theyre gone, but what a way to go!!Fantastic issue!!

      It may be nit-picky but if that Captain America is Bucky, they got the eyes wrong. Bucky has brown eyes. Those eyes are very much blue. Now Steve Rogers on the other hand...he has blue eyes.

      I really liked Ronin, he was so much more of a badass character then an archer in purple. Would have rather seen an ongoing continuation of the Reunion story with Ronin/Hawkeye and Mockingbird doing the whole espionage game. Would rather have made more room on the Avengers roster for other big hitters, but we shall see whoelse they have cooked up. My fingers are crossed for Ms. Marvel, Hank Pym and wait for it.....She-Hulk.

      [quote@CaptainFuryAgent Folks, I just looked at some of the promotional art again....There is no mistaking that in this iteration, BUCKY is the new Cap. His solo page does not look like Rogers, and reads, "I will forge my own legacy." Uh, that is clearly Bucky.Also, the arms on Hawkeye's onesheet are BOTH with the purple mesh. That makes the Bucky as Haweye theory go away but fast.I don't know about all of this....Steve should be the only Captain America. Period.[/quote] Dude, what the hell are u talkin about??Who was questioning whether that was meant to be Bucky?? Of course it is!I think Bucky should be Cap. He's prob the character whos developed the most in the whole MU over the past few years.@ Solstice: Dude, Fraction CANNOTT write a team book!!!! (See Uncanny X-Men!!) And Hickmans Secret Warriors was such a huge dissappointment! There was zero character development in the whole first arc!

      I like Bendis as a writer as well, I never read Avengers until he started writing and only then after the fact did I go back and get the older trades. I still prefer the events that have happened post Dissassembled than anything that happened prior to that.

      What is with the JR JR hate?Alright...he's not the BEST artist MARVEL have...but he's still a good artist.Maybe him and Bendis wanted to try and work together for a while?And just look at how many artists New Avengers has had in the 61 issues its been running for...quite about 5 or so? (I havn't actually counted - thats just an estimated guess) So chances are JR JR will only draw the first few story arcs and then some other artist will come onto the book.Also, I love Bendis haha.And characters probably don't get that much deveoplment in the Avengers because they get it in there solo books (like a couple of people have already said in this discussion)It's about the team working together to overcome the villain.Not about things like...if Tony Stark is gunna be an alcoholic this week or...if spidey is gunna get married again.I can't wait for the book and I look forward to seeing the final roster for it.

      I think Abnett and Lanning could definitely pick up another title :grin: . I'm actually starting to warm up to JRJR's art a bit, I know I'm going to be picking up this title in trades as they come out. I'm hoping for at least two other avengers titles. Mighty is an amazing comic and I'm very fond of Initiative.
