Another New New Avenger, I Thought He Was A Regular Avenger

What's going on here?

Recently we saw the new line-up of the Avengers. Yesterday we saw Luke Cage proclaiming to be a "New" Avenger when we all thought he was going to be leading the Thunderbolts (perhaps he'll do both). Today, Marvel has revealed another "New" Avenger. This guy was already slated to be on the regular Avengers along Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and the others. 


He's taking "responsibility for his actions"? Does this include being on the regular Avengers as well as this New Avengers team? The New Avengers book will be out in June by Brian Michael Bendis and Stuart Immonen.
 
We'll have to wait to see what this means. When you think about it, we didn't see these kind of promos for Spider-Man or Wolverine, who are supposed to be on the regular Avengers, based on a cover image released. Perhaps we all jumped the gun in assuming they'd be on the regular Avengers. If we're going with the thinking that the "New" Avengers will be less in the spotlight than the regular Avengers (but not as covert as the Secret Avengers), it makes sense that Spidey and Wolverine wouldn't be on the premiere team, given their reputations.

I HAVE LOST MY MIND CAUSE OF THIS!

maybe the avengers will be the consisting Thunderbolt-Avengers and the new Avengers the original Line-up, seeing Luke cage in it makes sense to me since he is the leader of the new thunderbolts.

will this madness ever end?

This gives me a headache.   
I actually love Bendis, for the most part, but why end the title just to bring it back a few months later? Are they starting the numbering over too? Agh.  
Hopefully whatever explanation they give for it will be satisfactory... I guess we'll see...

okay this is confusing :S lol

I think each individual Avenger, will be part of another Avenger team.

Posted by PrinceIMC

I'm thinking the 'Avengers' are the full time Avenger types like Cap and Hawkeye while the New Avengers are the ones who are more part time. People who have other jobs or responsibilities so they don't live in a mansion together or anything but gather to help each other out.

lol, so who's next Wolverine maybe? perhaps Ronin or Mockingbird 

Posted by warlock360

Thor i suppose

Posted by sora_thekey

Maybe the lineup is not based soley on who's on the cover... 
 
I think the Avengers lineup is: 
Captain America (Bucky) 
Iron Man 
Thor 
Spider-Woman 
Hawkeye
 
 
and the New Avenger lineup so far is: 
Luke Cage and Spider-Man 
 
for all we know Spider-Man and Wolverine are guest appearing on Avengers #1 and that's it!

The tagline should be 
 
"Love me again!"

This is what I was thinking.

huh...?  So he's an EVERYWHERE-Avenger? 
 
Oh, please take him out of the regular Avengers, Marvel! plz, plz, plz!!! I can't stand him with the avengers... he's such a forced-on comic relief for the team!

Posted by Nev-man

So we're all sure Wolverine is next, then perhaps Ms.Marvel? Sentry? Dr. Strange?

Ugh, you got to be kidding me.  What happened to having just one Avenger's book like Marvel promised?  I've despised Dark Reign, Siege has been a pile of garbage, but I was actually getting excited for Heroic Age.  A big part of that was having 5 of Marvel's biggest characters all on the same team.  Having Captain America, Thor, Iron Man, Wolverine, and Spider-Man all on the same team sounded amazing.  But it's looking more and more like the same bullshit Marvel's been feeding us with all these teams.  

Posted by lostlantern13

Well, maybe we'll see Ms. Marvel and Wolverine here. Wonder who that leaves for the 5th spot...

Posted by Omega Ray Jay

After Siege I'm droping Avengers books.

Marvel never promised 1 Avengers book
Posted by TazTheStampede

so basically they're just canceling Mighty Avengers and restarting New Avengers...along with Avengers and Secret Avengers.  That's so lame.  Mighty Avengers was the best Avenger title.  Here's hoping for an "I am a Mighty Avenger" teaser with USAgent.

They never promised one avenger book and it wouldn't make any sense for them to do so.

so they are gonna put spidey on the B-team avengers? YEAH that makes a lot of sense................and he will keep taking orders for MR. C-LEVEL "leader" luke cage? man this is dumb Why cant spidey have his own team of avengers if thats the case? i mean hes freaking SPIDERMAN!!!!!!!!!! man the least they could do is have cyclops on an avengers team and have Him Bucky and Barton each commanding thier own teams so we know we will have solid avenger leadership. Oh yeah an steve would be running the whole planet.

It doesn't say Luke will be leading, in fact with him running the Thunderbolts program I can see that being the reason he's not the New Avengers leader. As for Spider-Man he's not a leader type, been a loner too long. Can work with a team but not lead one effectively. 
 
Is there anyone else hoping that if Clint has any say he'll make Songbird and Mach-4 (though I think its 5 now) Avengers?

this is just stupid now.

true true.  i dont think there's a character from that book that i dislike...except for maybe stature...it was definitely better than the Whiney New Avengers
Posted by joshmightbe

i thought the whole point of the heroic age was to take the avengers down to one team but since then 4 teams of avengers have been announced, the avengers, the secret avengers, avengers academy and now new avengers, so basically theyre gonna just keep doing the same thing and im willing to bet the next "new" avenger will be wolverine

Posted by Jeez

I like marvel but heroic age seems boring and come on, Spider-Man in another team? I'm dropping all avengers books. Will only check out Secret Avengers.

Posted by They Killed Cap!

This is confusing. I don't like how they are just powering up the avengers books with the who's who in the marvel universe (well everybody outside of the x-men that is).
Posted by PrinceIMC

Yeah not the biggest fan of Stature in a grown up team but other Young Avengers stuck in obscurity. I guess she was just there to give Vision a reason to be on the team.
Posted by defaultdefaultdefault

why did they release this now as a " reveal " after theyve already shown him on
both covers of Avengers #1, and he was named in the team roster in several
interviews. i'm not for or against Herioc Age, in fact for the most part there doesnt 
seem to be much change, just the next linear part of progression, ill have to see when 
i get to that road, but this whole advertising campaign Marvel is doing with the " Guess if 
you can?" thing, where the reveal end up not being a big deal anyways is lame.

Posted by the_orange_crush
@sora_thekey: your speculation makes the most logical sense......i mean when that image came out with the trio, spider-man, and wolverine, it was said that they were part of the Avengers team, but didn't say which Avengers team, primary or new.
Posted by InnerVenom123

THIS IS F*CKING STUPID!  
 
GO BACK TO ONE AVENGERS TEAM ALREADY!!!
Posted by The Sharp Dressed Lady

This reminds me of when DC rebooted JLA in the eighties. Who would be in it, and who wouldn't be... Eventually they got Captain Marvel, Batman, Black Canary, Wonder Woman, Martian Manhunter, Elongated Man, Booster Gold, Blue Beetle and the bunch...

Posted by Yung ANcient One

so Lukes a T-Bolt and a New Avenger... now Spideys a... A Avenger and a NEW Avenger... plus he has to do his solo thang WTF MArvel... RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR... Wolvies a A Avenger... X-Man... X-Forcer... and he does his solo thang... WHats NExt DP joins X-Force... Secret Avengers... and does his SOlo Thang... RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR

Posted by crazed_h3ro

YAY!! Spidey ^_^. I knew he was still a "New" Avenger.Glad to see him back on the team.Really looking forward to reading the "New" avengers books and rooster

Posted by War Killer

Okay, I'm really not so worried, I love the current New Avengers book (just wish they would be fighting people other then The Hood every arc...) but like I said about the Luke Cage promo, I want to hear Bendis' reason for having this Avengers team along side the other two, maybe this is like West Coast Avengers?

Posted by Nyogtha

I want them to throw me something from left field and have Punisher, Juggernaut and Sabretooth become Avengers.

 @Spider-Man
            "I take responsibility for my actions" 
More like, I make deals with the devil..... so, how's he responsible anymore?  
 
"Direct me to DC!"

Posted by Primmaster64

I love spidey

Posted by cmaprice

Hmmm. Wolverine will be next, I think. I hope Hank Pym's on this team. Some sort of curveball would also be nice. Like Taskmaster or Cloak and Dagger.

Posted by growup

groan
Why can't they just have a single avengers team with all the heavy hitters?

Posted by Web_Spinner


Too many avengers teams! What is the point of Avengers: Earth's mightiest heroes........and another team of heroes, slightly less mighty.....and er, another team of avengers that are a secret.....and er...uh...ummm......another team of avengers who are young and learning to be mighty??!?!?  
 
One avengers team is enough. Think of another name for these teams/books. Avengers: Auxilary, Avengers: International, The Cosmic Avengers, etc...

 
A little creativity goes a long way. I hate that they are ending New Avengers...just to restart New Avengers?  Just keep the series going OR find a new name for the team!  Gah!!

Posted by Scoobypuff

GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR. Just saw the Wolverine "I am a New Avenger" Why does Marvel hate us so much. You know what Wolverine your not an X man anymore take that x off your chest.

Posted by d0npierre
@Web_Spinner: 
One team... Avengers. No more, no less, I agree..Why bring all them popular characters in one team, half of them usually are solo players. It's ridiculous to think that'll actually work.
