Take a look at the interlocking covers for what looks like the first two issue’s of the Marvel NOW reboot/re-whatever of The Avengers by Jonathan Hickman and Jerome Opena. So who answers this call this go ’round? From what I can tell, it’s Captain (formerly Ms.) Marvel, maybe Cannonball, some mystery dude to the bottom right of Captain America, The Hulk, Wolverine, The Falcon (he sucks, right) The Black Widow, Thor, The Human Torch (?), Iron Man (with some badass new armor) Spider-Man, Hawkeye and Spider-Woman. Time will tell about the series overall but this cover is still cool as hell.
SIMPSONS DID IT. Years after The Simpsons made the joke about the comics industry’s increasing need for one-off gimmicks to continue to sell books, Marvel comes bumbling along with Marvel Babies. Luckily, these are just variant covers for the upcoming Marvel NOW books, though there will be an A-Babies vs. X-Babies book. Can’t wait to pick that up! Plus, seeing as how they’ve already visited zombies, apes, noir, the dystopian future, and the Renaissance, I guess babies were due.

The final issue of AvX is slated to hit in September leading into the launch of Marvel NOW in October, which isn’t a re-boot or a re-imagining or a re-launch or re-levant (ha). Marvel Heroes: Never Stop Punching Faces.

Not to be super negative here but when I’d first heard about this project I was really excited about it. After seeing this cover, I’m…less so. What about you? (Via)
