    Excited Gillen is on "Iron Man" Land...eh. Looks like Rich continues to be correct about his check list. I think we still have Thor, Captain America, and Fantastic Four to be confirmed still.

    Land is actually good when he isn't doing porn faces or tracing and reusing artwork.

    curious as to who will get Captain America. Brubaker is gonna be a tough act to follow.

    Land can't do the monthly grind though can he? Doesn't he alternate arcs on X-Men?

    I wonder who he'll be paired with?

    I think Rich had "Captain America" by Rick Remender and John Romita Jr. as mentioned before.

    It would seem that Aaron and Ribic on The Mighty Thor may as well be considered confirmed now.

    For anyone who might be interested Marvel is doing another print run of the Grant Morrsion New X-Men omnibus. It's been out of print for nearly a year.

    CheapGraphicNovels.com has it up for order and Amazon should tomorrow as well if they don't already.

    So whats with the Captain Marvel covers using WWII iconography????? I know they're trying to push the military connection, but it strikes me as odd.

    The inside of issue one was a good read, I don't have to be acidic about the crass sucker bait if the product has quality.

    I think i found a loophole around that whole "worthy" clause with Mjolnir.

    Odin might think that warriors are worthy because they are honorable and accomplished warriors, but what about woman? If he want's a hummer from some barwench in the local tavern when the wife isn't looking, doesn't that make HER worthy in the eyes of Odin?

    It is by Odins estimate and not abstract right?

    Becuase why would Thor be able to lift the hammer when in the beginning he had been exiled for being a dick?

    They're being retro?

    Really excited about "The Mighty Thor" creative team. I'll pretty much read anything Marvel wise from Jason Aaron now.

    Hawkeye #1 by Fraction and Aja was fantastic! A done in one focusing on who Clint Barton is when he is not wearing the costume and his life outside the Avengers. We see where he lives, who his neighbors are and how he relates to them. In the end, whether wearing a costume or not, Clint can't help but be a hero. No Kate Bishop yet-- hopefully next issue, which one can assume will be more of a super-hero style tale.

    Defenders #9-- Wow, I'm actually buying two Matt Fraction books a month. Up until Defenders, I wasn't really a fan of, well, much of anything he had written (disclaimer-- Never read his and Brubaker's Iron Fist. His characterization of Danny here makes me want to hunt down the trade). In this issue, the Concordance Engine sends the team to a just-slightly alternate Earth in the 1960's where they try to gain the help of that timeline's Nick Fury. At he end, they escape that timeline, but don't find home, as they nfind their way to yet another alternate time-line (anyone else reminded of "The Cross-Time Caper"?). It would seem that 60's Nick is the Fury reported to be joining the team, as they accidently bring 60s Nick with them.

    Daredevil 16 was mostly about the efforts of Hank Pym, Tony Stark and Dr. Strange to free Matt from the senses-deadening nano-bots that he was injected with in Latveria and was almost as much about Hank Pym as it was about Matt Murdock.

    The ending was disturbing. Foggy confronts Matt about what he found in Matt's desk drawer, and it is revealed to be...

    ... Matt's fathers remains, along with the boxing gloves he buried him in.

    Foggy, of course, takes this as proof positive that Matt has gone nuts. Matt claims to not remember doing this, but Foggy doesn't buy it, and kicks Matt out of the firm until he gets help.

    Avengers Academy 34-- the first issue of the long-awaited "Final Exam" arc. Without their teachers to guide them, Mettle and Hazmat take up Jeremy Briggs offer of a cure to their powers. Former team-mate Veil tells them that he is on the up and up, as he has already cured her. Mettle and Hazmat take Jeremy up on the offer-- and it works. Hazmat can finally remove her suit and Mettle is restored to human form. Then Jeremy drops the other shoe-- he plans on using this "cure" on every super-powered human on the planet, thus ending the super-hero/villain paradigm that he believes is the cause of so many problems. Mettle, Hazmat, Stryker and Veil all seem to side with Jeremy, leaving Reptil, Finesse, Lightspeed and White Tiger on the run.

    With this issue, Christos Gage ups the ante for out cast as he brings the 2nd act of Avengers Academy to its conclusion. A lot of old subplots move forward in this issue and a lot of things happen. Can't wait for the next issue.

    Rich reported this back in June, but I believe he is wrong about The Hulk and the Agents of Smash...unless that is something entirely separate coming still. Mark Waid and Lenil Yu on Hulk though. I'm excited.

    Really interesting choices here. I can't tell if it's so awesome it has no choice to be good or if it's a case of so awesome, it can only be bad.

    Just finished reading Avenging Spider-Man #10, the conclusion to the Peter/Carol team up and man was it good and we managed to get a heart-warming story out of too. I don't know if there are any other Peter/Carol shippers out there but Marvel has my blessing if they ever get the guts to get these two together. Their dynamic is just awesome together and really why I've become such a huge Captain Marvel fan over the last two or three years. The art was fantastic as well.

    Incredible Hulk #11: This was kind of a meh story with the exception of the way Jason Aaron wrote Kraven which I thought was exceptional. I'm starting to agree with those who have stated this is fizzling out a bit, so perhaps it's a good thing Aaron's run is coming to an end in a couple of months. It started out great, but now it's becoming a little pointless.
