    Default Looking At The Future Of The Marvel Universe

    From Avengers #1, we get a rather entertaining comic book that posits seperate philosophies against each other. And then uses fists to decide the debate.

    But we also get a history lesson of what is to come. Sqaudron Supreme, Imperial Guard, Ex nihilo and his crew. And then the light... is this the New Universe connection, the White Event? The War may be the Ultron War. And The Fall?



    But there's one other scene that really sticks out. something that comes to mind as Captain America is being woken by Iron Man. He mentions bad dreams and flashes to...

    The members of the Illuminati? Looking down on Captain America? What have they done? And will we discover it in New Avengers #1?

    Time to hit the Marvel AR for this comic... an intro by Tom Brevoort, pencils and inks, and a motion comic version of the last scene. Wake The World.

    If it wasn't a $3.99 biweekly, I'd probably be picking this up.

    Ditto. I would be all over this if it wasn't going to cost $8 a month, but it looks like I'll be trade waiting it. And by trade waiting it, I mean waiting even longer for the paperback version...

    (and presumably doing the same with New Avengers which actually interests me more).

    Really looking forward to this book as Hickman is a great writer and the art looks fantastic. However, the only reason I am buying it is because I am getting the digital code for cheap. Around $3-$4 a month for 40 pages of comic is not bad. $8.00 a month for 40 pages is not something I am doing.

    Thank you for reminding me exactly why I initially didn't want to buy the book, even though today I was close to buying it digitally. Trade-waiting here I come!

    You mean you don't want the "great" marvel ar bonus features? It "totally" justifies the 3.99 price point

    Yeah, I could sort of understand it when it was 'I'll make use of bad writing to serve a plot point' and they used it to shoehorn the Planet Hulk plot. But for another writer to still be persisting with this moronic idea - baffling

    It isn't the 3.99 keeping me buying it. It is the bad mix match of dumb out of place characters with real avengers. Chance to bring some real avengers bad to team with expand roster and instead with random characters that don't belong. Cause we all know that is what fans are screaming to see avengers. More X-Men or wait New Mutants members as avengers. Artwork is bland and not looking good. If that is future marvel I don't want anything to do with it.
