@jonny_anonymous: looks like Pym is burping

I thought Wolverine killed Pym in Age of Apocalypse?

Zemo is such an underrated character.

That is such a weird mouth. I can't stop looking at it.

Is Hank trying to eat Zemo, or what?

@omgomgwtfwtf:

Oh yeah, I completely agree with you on that one.

Jeez that's a quick turn around! Anyone else feel this is being rushed?

I mean, let's do a tally -- Arcade's dead by 3. They join up with Zemo by 5. The heroes crash the island by 9. In between that we get some specific temptation issues for the characters (IE: 6 for Deathlocket, 7 for Nico, etc.). Given the sales so far and level of drop, it could very well wrap itself up by 12 -- 18 is pushing it with its low starting position.

This . . . does not bode well even without that.

The cover implies heroes coming to the rescue, and calls out to those who don't want the kids to go evil and gives them false hope that the Avengers and Hank in particular will help sort things out for them and bring back the characters people with pre-existing emotional attachment out of this series and back to the good guys. But it will more than likely be a fake out and further cement them as "Evil" rendering them even more easily disposable and less cared for by editorial than they were before.

Loving the characters but hating what's being done with them is a painful place to find yourself. Having been there for over a year now thanks to Dennis Hopeless, I can say that with impunity.

You meen Age of Ultron?) Yes, he killed, returns to "his" time, facepalmed, returns in past, stops himself from killing Pym, kills his other self (or was killed?) and after that time itself facepalmed and sent shockwaves in past, present and future and even other univeses.

Hoping to see Songbird make an appearance if anyone knows about Zemo's manipulations its her. Probably won't appear though since she's persona non grata to Marvel at the moment.

@rubear: Yes I meant Age of Ultron

That is one seriously gross picture of Giant-Man. Zemo looks cool, though.

Posted by ShadowSwordmaster

That is a pretty good looking cover.
