First Look: AVENGERS #1 from Hickman & Opena

Check out what you have to look forward to next month.

The Marvel NOW! titles are slowly rolling in. We'll be seeing a lot of creator changes along with new jumping on points for readers. One of the shifts is Jonathan Hickman on AVENGERS. Hickman will be joined by Jerome Opena on art and Dean White handling the colors.

Back in September we got an early first look at Opena's pencils. Today Marvel has sent us a full colored look at some of the first issue. Things are looking a little dreary for the team.

Marvel is pleased to present your first look at Avengers #1, kicking off the all-new ongoing series from the blockbuster creative team of writer Jonathan Hickman, artist Jerome Opena and colorist Dean White! The greatest heroes in comics together on one unbeatable team! Now shipping twice a month, the Avengers “go large,” expanding their roster and their sphere of influence to a global and even interplanetary level. When Captain America puts out his call - who will answer? Big threats, big ideas, big idealism - these are the Avengers NOW!

As part of Marvel NOW!, Avengers joins a number of titles that will take the Marvel Universe in an exciting all-new direction, as the industry’s top creators join the top Super Heroes to deliver all-new ongoing series, great for new and lapsed readers alike!

Each issue of Avengers includes a code for a free digital copy on the Marvel Comics app (for iPhone®, iPad®, iPad Touch® & Android devices). Additionally, each issue of Avengers features special augmented reality content available exclusive through the Marvel AR app – including cover recaps, behind the scenes features and more that add value to your reading experience at no additional cost.

An all-new direction! All-new threats! This is Avengers NOW!
This December, Jonathan Hickman and Jerome Opena redefine what it means to be Earth’s Mightiest in Avengers #1!

It looks good. I'll still need some text and a review tho before I decide to commit to this, especially considering that it's an expensive biweekly

Very nice, detailed artwork. 'Tis how it should be. Also they've finally put Captain Marvel (Danvers) in her new costume. About time they caught up with her book.

I don't read them for the pictures but that stood out since my shirts shrink and end up looking like that too.

Probably. And an ironic beard. And the next Iron Man suit will be an antique bicycle.

the artwork looks amazing can't wait to read this.

My gods! I love that art!

Holy damn that looks sexy. Not a big Avengers guy, but I'm a Hickman guy, so I'll be reading.

Posted by Sleepbutnodream15

Beauuuutiful! Opena, Deodato Jr, and Coipel are Marvel's best artists hands down.

@Grey56: Dear Grey56,

Thats DC who reboots their universe at a drop of the hat. Outside of mutant population boom everyone still has their origins, friendship, & nothing previous has been erased. please READ the book before you go angry fanboy.

Sincerely,

The comic community.

Posted by Grey56

@DJ1107: Are you serious ? It sure seems as if you are in fact. Try not to proselytize about something over which you clearly have no point of reference ranging any further than the last time you visited the outhouse and divined what was scrawled onto the walls by candlelight. Outside of the New 52 - I challenge you to find a sequence of events within the cannon of DC's storytelling or for that matter how many individual titles you can summon which have been restarted at issue number 1. I already know the answer to that riddle however it is obvious that you do not. Have you been reading Marvel for the last 25 years ? How about the last 10 ? I'll settle even since Avengers: Disassembled. I doubt it, highly. Try getting back to me once you are past your late teens or early twenties and/or have accrued a wealth of knowledge/experience to draw upon within the 'Comic Community' before you attempt to put someone on blast whom is far beyond any petty label so readily applied to simpering idiots whom busy themselves with margins of pop culture and nothing else.

Sincerely, Those of us with more than a day or a dollar invested in the Damn Industry

@DJ1107: PS - while you're re-reading the outhouse graffiti, know that not all of us have to read it to know that it's not Kant's last moral treatise.

I might pick this up just for the art... IT LOOKS AMAZING!!

Finally an Avengers artist that doesn't suck ostrich sized eggs. Although I am curious... Is Hulk taking over for Rulk now or something? I thought he was now with SHIELD, not Earth's Mightiest Heroes.

probably both, i mean banner is only on shield because he has some master plan, and he is probably on avengers to help people, rulk is the leader of thunderbolts :)

@TheAcidSkull:

And knowing tall, red and nasty, he'll drop his membership the moment Hulk starts quoting his catchphrase "Strongest one there is." He still has issues over the near-death beating Big Green gave him at the end of Fall of the Hulks.

aha ! but the" strongest there is is hulks catchphrase", red hulks is "there's no fair and unfair. there is only the mission" :DDD

@xAnimosity:

Dean white and Jerome Opena were amazing in Uncanny X-force so fingers crossed

I just wish Opena was staying on for the whole series :(

the more Opena the better :P

That line was Ross beefing up his "troops", much like he would have done his years prior to becoming a general. Although, to be frank, he does tend to steal Hulk's catchphrase when he's not around.

Sort of like in this moment:

I kind of wish Rulk would have a fire-pun catchphrase. Something cool, a teeny bit cheesy, but pretty bloodthirsty if he starts going into full Hulk rage mode.

Posted by TheAcidSkull

@Necrotic_Lycanthrope:

me too, The strongest there is quote stays with the original , rulk needs something to go with his army life

@TheAcidSkull:

Maybe 'InHoc, Signo Vincius'?

Or Veni, Vedi, Vici (although that one is a bit less dramatic, IMO.)

i kind of liked what he said to captain america, i want some variation of this quote

"there's no fair and unfair. there is only the mission"

@Grey56: You honestly seem silly complaining about them rebooting their continuity in the past when it has nothing to do with the now. It would be like me complaining about Vietnam when someone mentions guns.

Posted by Grey56

@SuperStarKirby: Who the hell asked you? My god, do you folks just crawl out from the nether regions of a dusty bed shawl to simply make farce on a message board ? First, I don't know how I'm being 'silly' by complaining about this newest reboot. To date, it is the 3rd time with most titles within 5 years. I'd be willing to wager a part of my month's wages you aren't past your mid 20's and haven't the faintest idea as to the marketing strategies of Marvel during the last twenty years. That said - your comment about complaining about

[ rebooting their continuity in the past when it has nothing to do with the now ]

doesn't make any linear sense if discussing how this timeline is being presented as a new story within cannon. Your second analogy is just as absurd and ill placed. Lastly though - I'll come back to what I stated first; who the hell asked you ? It's my damn dollar and I would be willing to bet I have more than a few more invested in this industry than yourself and didn't come to your front door to tell you how you were wrong to support such a ridiculous marketing ploy even though in fact you are a dolt for doing so. In short - I'll complain about what I damn well please and if you can't seem to see the sense in it try not to start a word war with someone whom is obviously more prepared to argue about the inefficacies of this than yourself.

@TheAcidSkull:

But as a battle cry?

Hmm, or else have him transform into a cyborg battle beast if he ever fights his future self (or visa versa, and have it like Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla.)
