    Short hair suits her!

    And I like that costume, though I'm not entirely sold on the art yet

    Not completely wowed by the clunky photoshop art (or the short hair), but looking good anyway.

    And there's something about a Sentinel doing some real protecting that warms the cockles of me heart. Time to finally check out AA, I think.

    It's not exactly a short haircut. Notice the party in the back.

    BTW, Jamie McKelvie designed the new look. I'm not going to say that having him draw this for me in October influenced him, but he hadn't drawn her before and I was very specific about her wearing pants.

    That is a goofy costume. I liked her Ms. Marvel one more. Still, I'm on board.

    I like the costume alright, but I am not digging the haircut much

    and yes, there are shades of Marvelman in the design

    I wrote this a while ago about her costume. I don't even remember what I wrote, but if you're so inclined.

    I thought I did. Eh. Well, now you know.

    Man, this is so much more satisfying in light of being visually assaulted by an image of Witchblade last night. Actually, it just makes that drawing SOOOO much more offensive now.

    Oh!
    "Why did I assume that I could breathe in space?
    Because she can? Or she could until now, anyway.

    I'm interested to see how she goes from Ms Marvel to Captain Marvel. The suit looks really good, the hair I can get used to.

    I like that new look so much that I will probably pick up the book.

    Any time before now, I would not have ever read a Ms. Marvel book, unless she was Binary again.

    I saw that first image cropped like this on Newsarama:

    Untitledmarv.jpg

    And "Marvelwoman?" was the first thing that went through my head.

    For those who don't know, this is what Marvelwoman/Miraclewoman looked like:

    Maybe Marvelman is the new Captain Marvel.

    Somehow.

    Because, yeah, that is clearly trying to evoke Marvelwoman.

    Re: Carol's hair: “@McKelvie: Basically it's shoulder length, but sides slicked back for when her helmet forms. It's not short at the sides.”

    Fair enough

    I like unusual hairstyles on superheroes so I think that is pretty cool

    Dark Avengers

    Luke Cage is still leading the team and there will probably be Thunderbolts carry overs as well both Walker and Shavley are on art, probably rotating arcs.

    that hulk is Skaar

    BlankZoeBlankZoe Registered User regular
    That is Skaar, Son of Hulk, Ai Apec from the Osborn mini that is basically a freaky South American demigod that is stuck in Spider-Man shape and Ragnarok the Thor clone

    I am not really excited for that

    but whatever

    does seem like I would prefer Ragnarok as a villain, though

  • Options
    BlankZoeBlankZoe Registered User regular
    I am really excited to see Parker write Skaar. Dude is Hulk+Conan, which is right up Parker's alley.

    Ai Apec I could take or leave and I have no god damn idea what he is going to do with Ragnarok

    but I'm happy Cage is still leader and Ghost and others will probably stick around

    They look far too close like Thor, Spider-man and Hulk IMO.

    Really it just seems like it is Thunderbolts with some new members and a different name on the cover to give it a much needed sales boost

    Spider-Man doesn't wear the black suit nor have multiple arms, Skaar doesn't wear pants has a big goddamn sword and has flowing hair and tattoos

    Ragnarok, yeah, but he is wearing the old goofy costume that Thor will never wear again

    plus I mean

    the whole point of the Dark Avengers was that they could pass as normal Avengers

    that's the point, i think

    they're violent counterparts

    Yeah, the whole concept of Dark Avengers was Norman Osborn finding dudes that were similar enough to the normal Avengers that the public would accept them
