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

FF 19 featured the kids on a field trip to Wakanda, taking place during the current Fantastic Four arc. A fun story about the kids without an adult in sight. The Future Foundation finds a new member, a Wakandan girl who helped the team with a group of local scavengers. With this story, I could definitely see the FF kids supporting their own book without the constant ties to the main book, which make it hard for FF to stand on its own at times.

Avenging Spider-Man 8 is an epilogue to then "Ends of the Earth" storyline that just wrapped over in Amazing. I actually haven't read "Ends" yet, but a few weeks back a glitch at Amazon had the HC listed for $10, so I took the plunge and decided to buy the epilogue issue as well. As an epilogue, it obviously spoils the main story, but still stood alone as fun read.

Hit-Girl 1-- Taking place inbetween Kick-Ass 1 & 2, and shows Mindy trying to adjust to a "normal" life. Mindy recruits Dave to be her sidekick and promises to train him if he teaches her how to be a "normal" little girl. Of course, nothing about Mindy's life can be considered "normal", but its fun to see her try. She laments that she can take on any thug that the world throws at her, but doesn't know how to handle the mean girls at school.

I was planning on buying X-Men: Legacy and Wolverine and the X-Men through the AvX crossover, but finances have become an issue and I've had to cut back. Just as well. According to the solicits, Aaron will be bringing in his "Hellfire Tots" villains into the WatXM AvX crossovers, whom I consider to the the Jar-Jar Binks of X-Men canon, so I can't really complain about dropping it.

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

Avenging Spider-Man #8 is from last week...and yeah Ends of the Earth has been on discount on and off at Amazon so I don't think that was a glitch. The lowest I've seen it for on Amazon Canada was about 15 bucks . The FF kids could support the book as long Jonathan Hickman writes them, he is the key to this entire thing. I personally don't think FF will be continuing when Hickman leaves in October. I need to read my pulls.

@Turtletrekker...you don't like the Hellfire kids? I love them!! They're nothing like Jar Jar at all IMO. They're like the anti-FF kids...they're whiny spoiled brats who have incredible power and influence, and have been a nuisance to Logan and the school since their first appearance. Since Schism basically has been all about kids, it only made sense that Aaron created kid antagonists.

I absolutely loathed them during "Schism".

Spider-Man teaser...that is not one of Doc Ock's arms either...I'm now fully thinking that this indeed is the Age of Ultron that these are all teasing.

It's a rifle pointing at Spidey, isn't it?

I don't know. I just assumed it was some kind of mechanical protrusion...but I guess it could be a rifle or some kind of gun as well.

No, it's definitely a rifle of some sort, which makes all sorts of sense considering the bullet holes in the Iron Man image.

The article even refers to it as "heavy artillery," so I don't know where you'd get the idea that it was a "mechanical protrusion."

Well, here's the answer to what the "War" teasers actually represent. Kind of disappointing, actually...

That looks ... a little on the dumb side. I could see Castle taking out Captain America or Spider-man, maybe Iron Man, but not the Black Widow and not Thor.

It's also not remotely surprising that the Punisher is involved. When the Iron Man image with the bullet holes was released, Castle was my very first thought.

The idea of Punisher taking on the Avengers is kind of boring (and how many times has it been done in the past?), but I do wonder if these promo images have anything to do with AVX fallout.

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

Now it makes sense why the announcement would be made during the Spider-Man panel since Punisher is now part of the Spider-Man book group. I thought it was a mechanical protrusion that belonged to Ultron...I didn't see the nozzle of the rifle. This is rather disappointing, but I suppose exciting for those who've been reading Greg Ruka's Punisher.

I doubt it'll happen, but wouldn't it be interesting if the Punisher basically came out for mutant rights and the defense of national borders? And voted Obama?

Bleeding Cool has put together a check list of all the rumors that they've compiled over the last few weeks regarding Marvel's musical creative chairs.

I'm more curious about Marvels next musical.

Has anyone seen Spider-Man on Broadway?
