The New New Avengers…possibly

Posted by LiveFor on January 28, 2010

The Marvel Universe has been through a lot over the past few years – Civil Wars, Villains taking over, Avengers disassembled, Spider-Man have his marriage wiped out of living memory by Mephisto, Skrulls secretly invaded, Nick Fury found out SHIELD was actually controlled by HYDRA, Hawkeye died, Hawkeye came back, Daredevil became leade of the Hand, Wolverine found out he had a son who was tougher than him, Captain America died, Bucky came back from the dead, Bucky became Captain America, the real Captain America came back, Iron Man was a bit nasty then wiped his memory to save the world, Wolverine was in everything, Mutants were almost wished into extinction and Wolverine was in everything. Plus lots more.

Currently Marvel is going through Siege where Norman Osbourne is at war with Thor and the Asgardians. Once that is all resolved things are going to get brighter.

“Heroes will be heroes again,” Marvel Editor-in-Chief Joe Quesada told USA Today. “They’ve gone through hell and they’re back to being good guys — a throwback to the early days of the Marvel Universe, with more of a swashbuckling feel.”

“The ‘brand new day’ of the Heroic Age presents a tonal shift to optimism, a world filled with hope but quite hellish villains,” writer Brian Michael Bendis said. “The heroes realize it’s a blue-sky world worth protecting.”

Bendis says the story line was approved long before the sale to Disney. “This was always the plan, and I have the memos to prove it,” he says with a laugh.

“This was always the whole point — the reunion, the Avengers getting back together, because this is what the world needs right now,” Bendis says. “Now we get to the good stuff.”

Robot 6 think the above lineup of heroes will also be the new team for The Avengers and I have to agree with them. Looks like Bucky aka Winter Soldier aka Captain America will become Hawkeye (check out the cybernetic arm) so that could well be Steve Rogers in the new Captain America outfit.

Also great to Gorilla-Man from Agents of Atlas on the team. Is it just me or has Beast almost got back to his previous form – check out his George Perez classic hair.

Personally I think it is a cracking line-up (which will probably last for about 4 or 5 issues) and really do hope we can get back to some classic Avengers story telling.

What do you think of the line-up? What bad guys do you want to see them go up against?
