It should be noted that the Uncanny teaser shown at the end of issue one showed Emma and Namor embracing each other and about to kiss.

I read Avenging Spiderman #2 last night along with Moon Knight #8.
Both were good reads.
Best line out of AS#2 was Spidey telling Red Hulk, "Lets see if you can be a hero without being ordered to do so." I did roll my eyes at the end when Spidey let the word Rulk out of his mouth. Overall though a nice first arc

Moon Knight #8 continues with the Kingpin of LA storyline. This is part 2 it seems after the opening arc. They keep referring to Count Nefaria as a Thor level baddie and I'm just not that familiar with him. Must have missed him in my Thor reading. My only gripe is that I'm over the head games of Marc envisioning what Cap/Wolv/Spidey might do AND using some of their gimmicks. He even comments he "needs a webshooter".
"Thor level" means he is in Thor's power class. In an Avengers story line back in the 80s (?) Nefaria gained super-strength, speed and optic laser blasts, prior to that he was just a regular human. As you might guess from that power combo he was a pastiche of Superman.
Thanks for the tidbits on Nefaria guys. I went and did a read on his wiki page and the powers you mention Santa Kang are an amalgamation of Living Laser, PowerMan and Whirlwind. Zemo did an experiment and used Nefaria as his lab rat. It also says he took Thor to a standstill which I guess is where Spector/MK goes with the verbiage "Thor level".

Here is the page and panel for reference in Moon Knight #8


In keeping with the Nefaria theme I've gotten the cartoon Iron Man: Armored Adventures and Nefaria pops up as working with Maggia in a story. Interesting timing I thought.

Re: Heroic Age/Avengers Ongoing Discussion Thread (Spoilers)

We now know Slott's next major Spidey epic...I haven't been this excited about the direction of Spider-Man in a very long time.

Here's CBR's coverage.

I posted this in the Avengers movie thread, but seemed appropriate to post here as well.

Marvel will be producing a movie-canon 4-issue "Avengers Prelude" mini-series setting up The Avengers.

Personally, I would buy a regular monthly on-going set in the movie-verse in a heartbeat.

I think this was mentioned before...unless this is different from the thing that Bendis is supposed to be writing which it looks like.

The Bendis project is in the 616 continuity.

Re: Heroic Age/Avengers Ongoing Discussion Thread (Spoilers)

Yep, sorry about that. I was thinking about Bendis and Bagley's "Avengers Assemble" project. I will probably ignore the Avengers Prelude. Comic film canon projects don't really interest me.


Here's another preview of next year's Spider-Man Season One Graphic Novel.

http://www.newsarama.com/php/multime....php?aid=45144

Looks pretty good. There are four of them I believe all coming out next year. FF. X-Men. Spider-Man and Daredevil. They're Marvel's response I think to DC's Earth One Graphic Novels.

Re: Heroic Age/Avengers Ongoing Discussion Thread (Spoilers)

I guess after reading last month of Ghost Rider being cancelled I just anticipated not seeing an issue after #6, even if they were done.

So I was glad to see issue #7 and sad as well cause it's just much more to miss. It looks like the Hawkeye guest spot will be about two issues so maybe #8 will be the final issue.

Would be nice to explore how Adam ties in with being able to rid Johnny of the GR, direct it to Alejandra and still have Zarathos and Mephisto as part of the narrative.
With the movie hitting in February and Johnny a co-star in the book it just seems stupid to not have a book on the shelf as a means of cross promotion. Low selling or not another month or two wouldn't hurt, could marginally boost things if something was timed right. Bring Danny into the book, he's also in the movie(as a tween but still). This just adds the vibe of mismanagement I've felt by Marvel suits of late.

Nice homage variant cover for FF 601

Surprised it took this long really. Incredible Hulk 377 from 1991.

Re: Heroic Age/Avengers Ongoing Discussion Thread (Spoilers)

Also have now read Punisher #6 - really digging how the "Bride" storyline is going. How she is now hunting the mob killers responsible for ruining her 'big day' using her police ties. She however runs into Frank during her hunt and the issue ends with them gun-to-gun. I also liked Franks all white winter look with the black skull painted on. Greg Rucka is doing an awesome run 616Punisher, you should check it out.

Now it's where it should be.

I dropped Ruka's "Punisher" because it was dragging out the story. I understand why he was pacing the arc the way he was but meh. Maybe I'll check it out again.

I liked Punisher when it was Dark Reign and he was using superhuman weaponry, but everything after the "death" has been very boring. And the Frankenstein thing was so... silly...

Rucka's run isn't feeling drawn out to me but these things are personal taste. We did both feel a similar thing on nuJLA though @Admiral.
The Frankenstein story should've at most been a 4 issue(at most) story. Instead it was drawn out over 12 or so issues. Frank is going to be encountering more 616 heroes soon so who knows, some superhuman weaponry might resurface.
