First Look: NEW AVENGERS #16.NOW

In March, Everything Dies. Uh oh.

This March, the past comes back to haunt even the most powerful heroes in NEW AVENGERS #16.NOW, from New York Times Bestselling writer Jonathan Hickman and chart-topping artist Rags Morales! No more bloodshed. The proud Black Panther and the arrogant Namor have sued for peace. To save their nations of Wakanda and Atlantis they must set aside their differences. As members of the Illuminati, a secret collective of the Marvel Universe’s most powerful heroes, they must work together in secret to stop the extinction of their entire universe! But their amends may be too little too late. Their universe is unravelling – and everyone pays the price for their sins. There’s no turning back for the Illuminati after this issue! No fan can afford to miss NEW AVENGERS #16.NOW!

I love all three of these guys... New ideas aren't hard to find, I wish someone would tell that to the guys butchering Wolverine.

What makes you say that, I don't see anything similar? (sarcasm)

I learned about SS but here even the designs look like the originals.

So maybe some closure to the Volume 1 story? I've been waiting for an ending after the six issues didn't give it!

I'm I missing something, why are people calling this Justice League?

And Flash a woman. But more importantly, did Dr. Fate and Batman have a magic baby? Cause that's what glowstick man looks like to me.

The character design makes them look eerily similar to the JL members (while being distinct enough to save them from copyright laws). Take a look as the red and yellow speedster and tell me that you don't see gender-bent Flash.

I thought Black Panther was Batman for a minute on that cover!

I doubt people would have even noticed the JL similarities without the Speedster woman.

Jonathan hickman is spectacular in this book, i hope he does this for a long while, and i also hope this series goes on for a longtime, one of my favorites at Marvel hands down.
