Avengers: AvX CHAMPIONS. "wedabes" declares Captain America.

And there came a day, a day unlike any other, when Earth's mightiest heroes and heroines found themselves united against a common threat. On that day, the Avengers were born—to fight the foes no single super hero could withstand!

So yeah, The Avengers. Maybe you have heard of them. Once an important, yet not as successful as its' peers, part of Marvel's line, it has since evolved into the publisher's flagship franchise capable of sustaining 5 books at a time.

THE BOOKS:
avnv4019_cov.jpg
AVENGERS
Writer: Brian Michael Bendis
Artist: Daniel Acuna, with Walt Simonson on deck.

The main team led by Steve Rogers, the Avengers are designed to tackle the most immediate and dangerous threats against the Earth. The current roster includes: Captain America, Iron Man, Hawkeye, Maria Hill, Protector, Quake, Red Hulk, Spider-Woman, Storm and The Vision. Currently tied up in a crossover with New Avengers called HAMMER War, Avengers will be one of the major tie-ins to Avengers vs. X-Men as well as Bendis' long-brewing Ultron War plans.

NEW AVENGERS
Writer: Brian Michael Bendis
Artist: Mike Deodato

Hand-picked by Luke Cage, the New Avengers are more of a family or brotherhood than a team. They take on whatever threats they deem necessary, particularly dismantling what is left of Norman Osborn's HAMMER. Current roster includes: Luke Cage, Spider-Man, Wolverine, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, Dr. Strange, Daredevil, Victoria Hand, Ms. Marvel, Mockingbird and The Thing. Just like Avengers, it is currently half of the HAMMER War crossover. During AvX it seems to become THE ADVENTURES OF IRON FIST. This is awesome.

SecretAvengers_22_Cover3.jpg
SECRET AVENGERS
Writer: Rick Remender
Artist: Gabriel Hardman

A team designed to complete one simple mission statement: Run the Mission. Don't Get Seen. Save the World. The Secret Avengers are a black ops team tasked with eliminating the more extraordinary and unknown threats of the world, ideally before they rise to public attention. A new direction took place in this month's issue 22, placing Hawkeye as team leader and a group of evolved synthezoids known as the Descendants as the new team's first foe. The team is: Hawkeye, Black Widow, Valkyrie, Captain Britain, Beast, Venom, Ant-Man, Giant Man and the Golden Age Human Torch.

17_AVENGERS_ACADEMY_1.jpg
AVENGERS ACADEMY
Writer: Christos Gage
Artist: Tom Grummett

A group of superpowered teenagers that were experimented on by Norman Osborn, the Avengers Academy started as a program to prevent these teens from becoming the next generation of super villains. Since then it has expanded greatly, moving to the former West Coast Avengers headquarters and opening its doors to any teen hero seeking guidance. Faculty includes: Giant Man, Tigra, Quicksilver and Hawkeye. The primary student cast are Striker, Mettle, Reptil, Finesse, Hazmat, Veil, White Tiger, Julie Power and X-23 although many other heroes make cameos and supporting appearances.

AVNASS2012001_cov_col.jpg
AVENGERS ASSEMBLE
Writer: Brian Michael Bendis
Artist: Mark Bagley

Intended to be a "greatest hits" title, Avengers Assemble features an iconic roster of Avengers(that just HAPPEN to be the same as the movie) tackling new versions of classic Avengers threats. Not immediately tying into any other storylines, the series looks to be a stand alone book in the vein of classic Avengers stories. Launches in March.

NOT OFFICIALLY AVENGERS SERIES BUT KIND OF CLOSE SO WHATEVER:
detail.jpg
AVENGERS VS. X-MEN
Writers: Brian Michael Bendis, Jason Aaron, Matt Fraction, Ed Brubaker and Jonathan Hickman
Artists: John Romita Jr., Oliver Coipel and Adam Kubert.

The big summer event this year, AvX has the Avengers and the X-Men butting heads over the Phoenix Force's imminent arrival on Earth. Cyclops thinks the X-Men should use Hope in an attempt to control the Phoenix Force and Captain America thinks that is a really dumb idea. The 5 man writing team seems to be switching off every issue, while following the main plot that was hashed out by Aaron and Bendis. Also Iron Fist may or may not become the Phoenix. Just sayin.

defenders-1.jpg
DEFENDERS
Writer: Matt Fraction
Artist: Terry Dodson

Brought together by the Hulk, the Defenders are a team of mismatched heroes that have to save the world from threats to outright weird or insane for anyone else to tackle. The book just wrapped up its' first arc, and is starting a series of character focused issues(one each for Doctor Strange, Namor and Iron Fist specifically) before moving on to its' next main plot. The team is Dr. Strange, Namor, Iron Fist, Red She-Hulk, Silver Surfer along with future members Nick Fury and Ant-Man.

    They are separated and Hawkeye and Spider-Woman are pursuing a thing

    also Mockingbird has super strength and such comparable to Captain America's now, if not a little bit more

    I we got the coolest Avenger from each book it would be like

    Protector
    Iron Fist
    Venom
    Hawkeye (he teaches at the Academy!)
    Thor
    Namor

    Team leader is Hawkeye, who is coincidentally the least powerful guy there. Basically he has to keep a punch of hardcore power-houses including a few very diverse personalities in line. This team is also known as the "kick the shit out of things" team.

    Iron Fist is connected to Phoenix somehow, which is a bird and death. USAgent flips death the bird:

    I'm honestly surprised this doesn't already exist.

    Anyway, I'm hoping that that Remender keeps Protector and the other Marvels around after SA #27 because that would be The Best.

    sigh. He made me drop uncanny written by some combination of brubaker/fraction a few years ago when I got tired of recognizing all the traced celebrities or the pasted on porn moan faces. I just can't believe he's on big/flagship books still.

    Since I'm the new guy around here can I ask why there's a new thread whenever one hits 100 pages?

    steam_sig-400.png
  • AriviaArivia Registered User
    It used to be because the old forums threw up all over themselves when a thread went beyond 100 pages. Now it's largely tradition.

    huntresssig.jpg
  • initiatefailureinitiatefailure Registered User regular
    also 1000 page threads tend to make people not want to jump into the middle of it.
