Old school vs new school

Hmm.but wouldnt the past avengers have the same attitude/personality as the current avengers?

Posted by Teerack

@keroga: Considering the current Avengers have been through a lot and don't act anything like they did back in the 60's, no.

It says in the article they aren't who they seem so luckily it doesn't look like these are the avengers of the past. Thank good Hickman isn't as out of ideas as he seemed coping Bendis.

The self-proclaimed House of Ideas is definitely out of ideas. Image deserves to be called the House of Ideas.

They gave Smasher a big butt on the cover. :3

Uh... what? Does this mean they're reprinting a whole other comic in this issue? I suppose it may get a few Avengers readers to read Invaders, but would it really be enough to justify something like this?

OH COME ON!!!!

Shouldn't present day ironman easily take on past ironman!!!

Posted by lmothander

This is ridiculous! There are no more battles to fight so they are sending people from different time periods back/forward to fight avengers/x-men. How about half as many titles and stories with impact and quality?

groan... this looks bad, glad I dropped this after Infinity (which was awesome)

Posted by ptigrusmagus

I love Smasher's big butt especially in Infinity, yum

Edited by CrashBang

Why is everyone saying these are past Avengers? They're not. They're evil Avengers from another dimension.

Although this arc is waaay to similar to Forever Evil, I'm actually really enjoying it so far.

@teerack: I'd smash her! huehueheueheue

salvador larroca sucks SOOOO bad right now

Posted by Mix_Masta_Micah

@crashbang: thank god someone understands. Hey people! Don't knock something that you haven't read! You're complaints are completely invalid and unfounded.

Posted by Perfect 10

@keroga: they are from an alternate universe where they are evil

Posted by PeppeyHare

Do any of the people complaining even know what they're complaining about?

Posted by WaveMotionCannon

@peppeyhare: no. I really don't think they do at all and that's the sad part. This story is really good and I'm looking forward to watching it unfold. The new Super Adaptoids are awesome.

Posted by Novemberx2

@keroga: these are evil avengers from another universe, not the avengers from the past

Posted by MaccyD

Would the evil Avengers not be outnumbered by the 616 ones?

Posted by Oscars94

@maccyd: They are evil Avengers, they don't hold back!

Edited by Maddpanda531

This arc has nothing to do with time travel, people. And Hickman most certainly hasn't run out of ideas. This is just the repercussions from the events in New Avengers spilling into The Avengers.

Posted by ptigrusmagus

Some people dislike Avengers and New Avengers because it goes over their heads. Compare those two with Justice League and JLA, no contest on which are the better series

Posted by MaccyD

@maddpanda531: It's actually a very smart way of revealing to the Avengers the consequences of New Avengers. Should be fun to see Cap's reaction eventually.

@wavemotioncannon: @peppeyhare: THANK YOU. After reading most of these comments, I Thought that I was the only one that read the book instead of blindly criticizing it.

This looks pretty cool actually, nice art too.

@maccyd: Oh, thank god SOMEBODY gets it! :P

Yeah shouldn't it be the equivalent of Windows 98 fighting Windows 7?

Oh cool reverse Superman!

Really like what Hickman is doing these days. Everything slowly tying together and coming to light is good stuff.

As she should!!!! >:]

Posted by DatHomieSilverSurfer

fo'real, Smasher's booty has been one of the main draws to hickmans avengers run (he must have given his artists some sort of mandate)
