When he dies, I hope they write "Worst Affirmative Action Hire, EVER" on his grave. His corpse should be trolled.

    Okay, Deadpool Team Up has potential for huge win, so long as the writer uses the Nextwave version of Machine Man.

    Ha, the American Son solit spoils the identity of American Son. Luckily, nobody will care.
    Spoiler:

    Also, a bit about the Avengers Academy is spoiled.
    Spoiler:

    This was actually alluded to back in Initiative.

    Also, when the hell is Fraction starting on Thor? Gillen is still writing as of #614.

    the only thing i might get is that Resurrection of Galactus FF hardcover if it has sufficient cosmic elements (looks like it probably does)

    I don't think he is. Another writer has been announced for it I think, I forget who though.

    I wish they'd just leave Gillen on the book. He clearly knows what the fuck he's doing.

    The Spitfire one-shot by Paul Cornell should be fun. I really like that Marvel's been chucking out all these one-shots and short mini-series for characters that couldn't support ongoings.

    Deadpool #1,000 has a great list of talent attached, so that should be awesome, and Hit-Monkey vs Bullseye ought to be fun.

    Was Prince of Power always a mini, or was its run shortened? And it looks like Dark Wolverine's ending, which is a minor bummer.

    I think Prince of Power was always a mini, with the intention of having another miniseries (or ongoing relaunch) once the 4 issue story was over.

    Daken is getting his own relaunched book as well (if I'm remembering correctly).

    The fate of one hero and the birth of another will be decided here, as the Secret Avengers true enemy is finally exposed! It's an all-new kind of Avengers by award-winning writer Ed Brubaker and acclaiming artist Mike Deodato, Jr.

    Brubaker don't you freaking dare.

    Some good looking stuff there, New Avengers in particular looks lots of fun.

    EDIT: Oh shit Brubaker if you kill Nova I will mess you up so bad.

    The beauty of a 'team' book is that a writer can't really kill off another editorial office's character - there's no chance Nova dies in SECRET AVENGERS.

    I know, it was just a reflex response. I just lost the Sentry, no way they're taking Nova away as well.

    Steve just got pissy because Nova is a better character than he is and kicked him off the team while nationalizing the nova force. What a loser.

    Young Allies #3 makes Gravity sound like he's become some dark guy, which I find sad.

    And all the X-titles look so bleh, especially spinning out one-shots for the third title on a weak premise (except for Legacy, Clay Mann whooo)

    And Cap #609 still has that stupid Zemo character destruction story going on, so lame.

    Read the Avenger's Prime solicit. It sounds like Fraction's previously solicited Thor issue is pretty dependent on a status quo change that happens in Prime, so I imagine the Fraction run will finally start either in September or once Avengers Prime ends.

    Edit: Gillen's blog suggests this is his last Thor arc, as well.

    The Secret Avengers are getting their asses kicked, so Nova makes them all into Nova Centurions to save the day. War Machine gets a Cosmic Gatling Gun and Steve gets a Gravimetric Shield Shield. Everybody wins.

    That's a pretty Daredevil cover...

    What's the deal with the Women of Marvel omnibus? Did they just cram every single-issue featuring a female into one giant book and call it day? That very sloppy of Marvel.

    Have you read Born Again? If not, start there. It's relatively self contained, amazing (like, DKR amazing) and serves as the blue print for pretty much all of Smith's, Bendis', and Brubaker's runs

    I seriously doubt they'll kill Nova. As it's been said, he belongs to another editor's office, plus it's STEVE ROGERS! The same Steve Rogers who just got a new outfit! They won't change it that soon. Plus The Thanos Imperative, and Steve Rogers: Super Soldier, are both running at the same time. This'll be a one issue thing at best.

    Avengers Prime won't be ending till February since it's a bi-monthly title so I doubt any true changes will happen in the title.

    If a book written by Bendis of all people has to be bi-monthly then you know Davis will be taking his sweet time to say the least.

    Pretty sure hensler's called secret avengers. And fucking hell marvel, got enough shadowland tie ins? I mean, yes, i'll probably be bying the heroes for hire "blood on the streets" seeing as i was ranting the othe day about how we havent seen them since WWH and possibly the power-man one. But sweet jesus, every event has like eighty fucking minis & one shots along with it.

    Are you trying to send me bankrupt?!

    Only getting two trades in August, the first Diggle Daredevil book and Dark X-men. Might get the Secret Invasion hardcover if I can somehow trade in the single issues for it.

    The entire first NA arc is about magic. He'll do something.

    Actually come to think of it

    First NA arc is magic
    First Avengers arc is time travel
    First Secret Avengers arc is space

    Considering The Thanos Imperative 3 is out in August and explicitly mentions Nova assembling a team, Its safe to say he isn't getting killed off.

    I for one, am interested in hearing the Steve Rogers/Worldmind banter.
