  1. Cap's photon shield probably came along at about issue #4 of this series, right after the events in his own book.
  2. No complaints from me. I've been wanting a comic-accurate Commander Rogers, and this is it. I've also been waiting since...1998 for a Heroes Reborn Iron Man, and this one looks incredible. Karnak and Marvel Boy I can take or leave, and I don't buy MCU figures, so I don't need the Marvels ladies.
  3. ...I've been waiting for this version of Iron Man since the days when I was still collecting the 90's 5" ToyBiz figures. I am SO excited to finally get him, and the pictures do not disappoint! Instant buy as soon as I see one. Steve Rogers looks amazing, too. Much needed update, as the previous one from a decade ago didn't quite look comic accurate. Something was just off about it, and the ugly Steve Rogers head sculpt that got passed around and reused several times over didn't do it any favors. Marvel Boy...not a character I care much about, BUT I need to him for my Dark Avengers team, so I'll probably get him. Karnak...I'm not a big Inhumans fan, (I used to simply be indifferent towards them until they crammed the Inhumans down our throats in an attempt to replace Mutants, a few years back, now I downright despise them) so he's 50/50 for me. Maybe if I find him on clearance. I'd much rather see a Crystal figure. I need her for my Avengers team. The MCU Marvels ladies are a pass for me. I don't do MCU figures. As for Cho-Hulk, depending on which figures comes with the head, maybe an older Hulk's head can be swapped out for this one, and I'd probably be okay with that. I'm not a big fan of that Hulk era. But Heroes Reborn Iron Man? I'm in.
  4. Okay, after doing some research, it seems like BOTH current Captain America titles are coming to an end with the conclusion of Cold War. The upcoming Captain America #750 seems to be serving as a bookend finale to Sam Wilson's Symbol of Truth title. Which means that the brand new Captain America #1 (out in September) is going to be the ONLY Captain America book, and will hopefully carry Legacy Numbering #751 on the cover, restoring order to the universe as I know it.
  5. Because comic book continuity is a giant house of cards. If you acknowledge how long Steve has really been out of the ice (around 55 years, in our time) it begs the question why nobody else really seems to age. Same reason why Superman and Batman still appear to be in their mid-30's, when they should in reality each be closer to 110(ish) years old. They've always tried to stay away from referencing things that can pin-point specific dates, although it's sometimes unavoidable. Steve Rogers will always be treated as if he's only been out of the ice for a decade.
  6. Yeah, but isn't he also the same writer responsible for "Spider-Man: One More Day"? That scares the hell out of me for Captain America.
  7. Okay...I'm thrilled that they aren't going to be killing off Steve Rogers, because I truly thought that's how Cold War was going to end. So, I'm happy that Steve's getting a new title. My concerns are: 1) Where does that leave the Legacy Numbering? Because "Symbol of Truth" (Sam Wilson's title) is carrying the Legacy Numbering...where does that leave the new book that's simply going to be titled "Captain America"? And, 2) from this description, it seems like this series is going to be very WWII flashback oriented, which I'm really not a huge fan of, because it's kinda boring to me, and also, how many retconned flashbacks can you keep cramming into Captain America's history? It seems like they just keep coming up with more and more every single year, when he wasn't active for all that long before he went under the ice.
  8. I hate being teased with nice things that we aren't allowed to have anymore.
  9. This looks REALLY cool. The West Coast Avengers never get any love, so it's pretty exciting to see something like this come out. Classic Mockingbird has been on my want list for a VERY long time. Here's hoping she comes with an alternate ponytail head. Hank looks awesome. Julia Carpenter is one of my all time favorite characters, whom always gets largely ignored, and this one is actually nicer than the figure that came out three or four years ago. Tigra has a nicer paint job than the previous one, but other than that, she and Iron Man don't bring much to the table here. Still, very cool set. Maybe as a bookend, we can get a Force Works set, with Century???
  10. Just saw the cover to Avenger #4. Thor is back to his original outfit, so it looks like it's actually happening!
  11. Does this mean Thor is actually getting his original costume back in mainstream continuity? Not a flashback story, or alt-universe kind of deal?
  12. "The Marvels" comes out this November. It's fairly obvious that they're going to have her resurrection coincide with the movie release. She's also very likely going to be resurrected with the Mutant gene. Probably a new costume, too. Always gotta have that MCU synergy to water down the comics. It's too bad, I would've actually been excited if I thought her death was actually going to stick. I can't stand her character, and with her around, Carol will never take up the old costume/identity ever again, which angers me.
  13. They're gonna kill off Steve Rogers. Mark my words. I've been saying it since they announced "Cold War". I even said that Steve's book would probably end, which is now confirmed. And I've known this was coming since they put Sam Wilson back in his Cap costume. They're gonna do the MCU synergy thing. Steve Rogers will be benched, and Sam Wilson will be the only Captain America. Plan on this status quo lasting for at least the next two or three years.
  14. I get that they're oversized...but $8.99? I can't justify paying $9 for a comic book, even if it's something that looks as good as this does. Marvel HAS to realize that sales are going to suffer with this book because of the price tag. The regular $4 price point was already beyond pushing it, and I'm fairly certain that $4.99 will become the new standard in the next year or two.
  15. Somebody mentioned elsewhere that this series is going to be $8 per issue?? Can anybody confirm that?
  16. And this is exactly what I'm talking about. The whole trying to replace Mutants with Inhumans thing was complete crap. And they tried to do it because of the Disney/Fox feud. Same reason why the Fantastic Four was banished from the comic books for three years. When you try to turn the comic books into the movies, all you're succeeding in is ruining the comic books. The movies are fun to watch, but then then they're forgotten about. They should NEVER dictate what happens in a comic book, especially books like Avengers, X-Men and Fantastic Four, which each carry 60+ years of continuity under their belts. Wanna make MCU-based comics? Great. Start an imprint, like Ultimate Comics. Let it have its own separate universe. You can water down the characters as much as you want, and have all the bland adventures and terrible retcons your eyes can handle. Just leave the mainstream comics alone. They were fine for 50+ years before the MCU came along, and they'll be around long after the movies are no longer being made. They (and the true fans) don't deserve to have decades of continuity tossed out the window, just because they want to synergize with an upcoming movie that no one will care about in six months.
  17. I don't think their parentage and their status as mutants were specifically tied into each other, but, I absolutely hate the fact that they undid it. Having Magneto be their father was a fun way to tie the X-Men and Avengers universes to each other. The editorial reason for taking away their mutant status was due to Disney/Fox hating each other, and dropping their mutant origin was the only way they could appear in the MCU. Naturally, as always, the comics have to suffer because of it.
  18. Oh, it was completely stupid. And don't get me started on the whole Wanda and Pietro no longer being mutants thing. Yeah, let's just erase 50+ years of established continuity, just so we can have the comics synergize with a movie that nobody is gonna care about in six months... Superior Iron Man was interesting, but would've gotten old real quick. That's probably why they planned to have it come out just before Secret Wars (2015), because they knew they were hitting the reset button with the event, so they could really just do whatever they wanted beforehand. Probably the same reason that final issue of Hickman's Avengers book looks like it ended with Captain America and Iron Man dying while fighting each other.
  19. Savage Avengers was basically a vehicle to integrate Conan into the modern day Marvel Universe. After the opening story arc, there wasn't even really a team. It mostly featured Conan, and Dr. Doom. I never cared for Conan. The guy wears a loincloth and knows how to wield a sword...got it. Still, the writing was on point, at least with the stories that didn't tie into larger event books. And, Deodato's artwork is always a visual treat. So, it was a decent book. It just shouldn't have held the Avengers title on the cover. This would've worked much better as a Defenders book. But, well, as I stated before, the Avengers brand sells, even when it's not really an Avengers book.
  20. Kinda, it put Sabretooth on the road to redemption, and had him replace Wolverine (after Logan's death) in the Uncanny Avengers. That's the only real carry over, from what I remember. It was still one of the better event books in the last decade or so. Fun story, with decent artwork.
