    Meet Molly and Wally, two charming children who go around the country singing cheerful songs that incite people to violence against mutants.

    Oh, come on...


    Probably based on the real life white supremist olsen twin wanabes. Googling...

    Who the fuck spilled their tentacle rape hentai into my superhero comics?

    Anyways, these solicitations all look pretty awesome.

    Terror Inc. as a MAX series written by David Lapham? Thor, with a cover by Gabriel Dell'Otto and written by JMS? Shanna the She-Devil by the dudes that write Jonah Hex? The Initiative, with a guest appearance by Constrictor? A Front Line cover that doesn't suck? It's like Marvel sat down and made a big list of shit that I think is awesome, and then did it.

    However, some of the solicits fill me with that "Oh man that C-lister is so fucked" dread. I mean, Constrictor fighting the Hulk along with a bunch of brand new characters? Of course, Slott did use Constrictor in The Thing series, so hopefully he'll be good to him. But look at that Front Line cover with the Hulk's hit list. You've got Iron Man, Black Bolt, Wolverine, Ms. Marvel, Spider-Man, Cyclops, Thing, and Tigra. And I'll be straight with you doggs, I like Tigra. Ever since I read those old West Coast Avengers comics I dug out of the quarter bins.

    Wait I'm confused.

    Why does Hulk have beef with Spidey, Cyclops, Wolverine, Thing, Tigra, and Ms. Marvel?
    Is this one of those cases where the Hulks just gonna punch people who were somewhat kinda involved with someone and everyone will claim he's right?
    Because seriously.
    I'm waiting for the Hulk to start beating the shit out of himself for having at one time been an Avenger with Tony Stark, and thus working with him.

    Remeber those FF ads a few months back that had the "possible members" for the new team, yet it included the likes of The Punisher and Doctor Doom?

    I think it's not meant to be taken literally.

    I would read a Fantastic Four series with the Punisher as a member.

    The New New Fantastic Four.

    Punisher, Wolverine, Victor, and Molly.

    People Molly has punched (and Victor because I couldn't think of anyone else to add, and she seems to like him).

    So, the cover of New Avengers #33: who do we think that is? The Fixer, the Hood (guy at the front, but maybe not because I have no idea what the Hood looks like, and am basing it on the fact that the guy at the front has, uh, a hood), Madame Masque (maybe), the Owl (based on the fact that the guy on the far left has an almost-strange haircut) and some guy with goggles and gloves.

    Some people over at Newsarama have cast their votes towards Sebastian Shaw, Electro, and The Wizard.

    I remember hearing something about it, but I never read it.

    Other than that, though, he hasn't really been seen since his comic got cancelled in like, '96 or something.

    [FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]SERIES TITLE TO BE ANNOUNCED
    [/FONT][FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]
    A team of long-dormant Soviet super-weapons is awake, angry and heading straight at the heart of Los Angeles ready to finish World War III! The front line of defense is a team that’s been together since just before nine this morning! The queen of PR starts her spin! A dead body hides more than just a murder mystery! AND AND AND -- a super-sex tape! What on earth could justify the use of that many exclamation points? Surely, it could only be the second sensational issue of the yet to be named new ongoing series written by Matt Fraction (IMMORTAL IRON FIST and PUNISHER WAR JOURNAL) and with art by the amazing [/FONT][FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Barry Kitson.

    And the preview picture?

    CHAMP002.jpg

    "WHAT IS THIS MYSTERY SERIES- fuck it, it's the champions."

    That just made me chuckle.

    The reason why they arent solliciting the title is because the name "The Champions" is owned by someone not Marvel, so they have to rename it.

    Also, they have Marko Djurdjevic doing eight covers. He is a painting machine. Unfortunately, some of them suffer as a result.

    Man, fuck that, Blade is an awesome mine. It's the writer's that can't seem to extract enough awesome to keep it going. The shitty thing is that this Blade series improved dramatically as each issue came out. It's actually getting cancelled at the highest point, story-wise.
