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

The only thing I find interesting about Secret Avengers so far is the Nick Fury involvement, but I'm sure he's a) a LMD or b) undercover.

I forgot about the LMD but for some case where Brubaker is concerned I lean towards option number two...that he's undercover.

Read issue three of Secret Avengers and it's back on track. This new Shadow Council is interesting as is Nick Fury being a part of it. Reading him call someone else Director and 'sir' was weird though. I'm convinced that he has some sort of plan regarding this organization. Possessed Nova was kind of fun though. The next issue teaser shows Steve about to put on the Nova helmet!!
My thoughts exactly. The Shadow Council/Nick Fury thing is interesting. Took me a while to get into the whole Mars storyline but I liked how it went.

Avengers #3 definitely reeked of filler so that Marvel could charge more of the trade paperback. Now what you want from a comic that is supposed to be Marvel's flagship.

The Avengers franchise grows larger still. A new monthly to be written by Fred Van Lente, as reported by Newsrama and Comic Book Resources.

Perhaps some sort of "cosmic" Avengers, with Hercules perhaps (as Van Lente is co-writer of Hercules)? Maybe spinning out of the upcoming Chaos War event (also co-written by Van Lente)?
Looks like this will be a mini rather than a monthly but it will be crossing into the Chaos War event. I give you... The Dead Avengers!

Apparently, it will all make sense within the context of the Chaos War event.

Dead Avengers? Seems Marvel is now into JLAntarctica territory. Franchise overkill.
And really Vision, don't you have to be alive before you can be dead?

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

Finished reading "Secret Avengers" and this book just doesn't disappoint. It's probably my favorite Marvel book at the moment and I wasn't sure what to expect from it before hand. Rogers does indeed host the Nova Force while rescuing Richard from the Serpent Crown while Ant-Man blows up the Shadow Council's Vanishing Point!!! I'm also becoming a fan of Valkyrie thanks to this book. The Secret Avengers are now aware of Fury and next issue looks like we're going to get some answers...maybe. Awesome stuff.

I'm having the opposite reaction. I just don't care about anything in Secret Avengers. I much prefer New and O.G. Avengers.

Haven't checked out the New Avengers restart yet and thought "Avengers" started off good but has tailed off. But now maybe that Maestro has showed up.

I digged SECRET the most this week. Feels like good, old school Avengering.

While I like the plot in NEW, I can see my end in sight. Bendis' dialog is really starting to grate on my nerves.

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

Well I just finished reading Avengers#4 and again weird stuff is afoot...the Avengers team in the future indeed encounters their children who are following orders from Maestro who's revealed to be...good? In a humorous panel Maestro greets the Avengers and bear hugs Logan and acknowledges his name. In fact Maestro planned the entire thing to bring them to the future to help them...but then the cliffhanger (I'll admit the cliffhangers in this first arc have been pretty great) has old Tony Stark and Maestro holding Iron Man as it appears that Old Tony is about to tear into his younger self for some reason. Crazy stuff happens in the present too.

I bet you it's a non-cliffhanger where all he does is take a skin sample or something.

Interesting...

In this interview at CBR with Marvel Executive Editors Tom Brevoort and Axel Alonso they preview this image from Avengers #5, which they call "the most important panel in a Marvel comic this year" and supposedly contains clues and minor spoilers for the next two years of Marvel stories.

There are references to recent events such as the begining of the Heroic Age, the return of Hope and the Five Lights, and "Shadowland", stuff coming up soon such as the "Chaos War" and "Three", but what is the "Ultron War" , "Yesterday's X-Men", "Galactus Seed" and "Scorched Earth"? (Actually, the flow chart indicates that that "Ultron War" might relate to the vision of the future Steve Rogers had in Reborn #6.)

Interesting...

So Marvel has decided to copy Rip Hunter's chalkboard from 52...except in the form of a timeline, interesting.
