    I know this is another start to another era of the Avengers but I'd love Hasbro to knock out some of these costumes. In truth, we have or will be getting a lot of these with the bearded head on the Masterson Thor, the upcoming Hawkeye, I swear Cap had his Photon shield here but he will be using it soon enough.. not a huge fan of this version of Wanda but she almost never gets anything but her classic suit, this Quicksilver would be amazing... I may be in the minority but it would be nice to get alternate classic suits every now and again.

    Cap's photon shield probably came along at about issue #4 of this series, right after the events in his own book.

    Funny how Iron Man and Cap have been parts of other characters waves lately while getting us much requested versions. While both IM and Cap certainly fit in the Puff Adder wave the versions we got in there were very well done and  updated. 

    The same for this Marvel's wave. I know, "another Cap and Iron Man" but again, a much requested suit and an much needed updated figure.

    Both Cap and Iron Man could headline waves but it has been nice to fill out important suits in other characters waves

    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.

    Still why are they still see to be treating Steve as a Man out of time when he's been in the present day for rough 15 Marvel Years

    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.

    Ha, ha! Right? It's like that Beatles conspiracy where they released 3 albums and a Christmas Album and toured America all within the length of a year and many years later when analysists took apart the schedule they figured they would have had to work like 358 days of the year on an average of 2 hours of sleep a night to have accomplished it. By todays standards of course. Still it was this crazy Herculean feat.

    Completely off subject but it's one of those things that comes to mind every time a writer comes along and tries to shoehorn a bunch of other stuff in an already full history. Still I'm a fan of Straczynski and he is one of those writers that can create sensational stories without killing off or reinventing a character over and over.

    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. 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???

  9. "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.

  10. 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.

    The solicitations include price tags.

    First issue sits at $8.99 with 56 pages. Second issue is $5.99 with 40 pages. If the second issue is also oversized, maybe the third and fourth will be too.

    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.

    Similarly, that was the same childish, petty, immature BS that made them try, and miserably fail, to kill off the Mutants and replace them with the oh so booooring, step-sister, perpetual extras the Inhumans. Now where are they? No one knows. I mean Black Bolt, errrrrrrr.......I mean Blackagar Boltagon made an appearance, and met a very satisfying end, in Multiverse of Madness, so we can assume they exist in the MCU, but now one of the most notable Inhumans in recent Marvel, Ms. Marvel herself, has been turned, or very strongly insinuated to be a mutant. That's what makes me angry that she's suddenly the first Mutant in the MCU. Of course, people hit me with the go-to rhetoric that I was full of hate and all the other locked and loaded cheap shots that are the norm for this time in history, but it had nothing whatsoever to do with that. These idiots, overly confident by the success given them by the MCU, put all their power and push behind the Inhumans to get rid of the Mutants and in the end they ended up having to back up a money truck to Fox to get those characters back. Now Mutants are the big game in town, and all is supposed to be forgiven, and suddenly there's a ton more characters that turn out to be Mutants after all. It's all so ridiculous, but hey, they gave Marvel a ton or "Return Of" stories to milk for many years to come.

    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.

    While I was never a fan of Magneto being Wanda and Pietro's dad, I still didn't like the Axis retconning them not being mutants for the lamest of reasons. Oh Magento isn't their dad so they must not be mutants either. What logic is that?

    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.

    I hated that story.  The only thing good about it was that it was short.  That’s also where we got the Wanda and Quicksilver are not mutants in the dumbest explanation possible.  It did lead to Superior Iron Man as well which was ok but short lived and not something anyone wanted.  Plus I’m real tired of Sabretooth redemptions.  Keep X-Villains as villains, especially him who is arguably the worst

    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.

    I did not know they weren't an official team. I read the first run and ot was okay but it didn't feel like an Avengers book. I actually wondered why it had ties to the Avengers at all as not once did anyone on the team say the word "Avengers". Guess that should have tipped me off 

    I get what you're saying about watering down a franchise. Being a huge horror movie fan I often see films take the name of an established franchise and basically bastardize it into something unrecognizable.  Too bad I this case

    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.

    But where did Axis lead? Haha 

    Were any plot.points or threads continued from there?

    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.
