First Look: SECRET AVENGERS #1

The Secret Avengers battle against M.O.D.O.K.

This March, run the mission, don’t get seen, save the world. The covert branch of Earth’s Mightiest is back with a new mission, new enemies, and even deadlier threats. Today, Marvel is pleased to present your first look at SECRET AVENGERS #1 from the critically acclaimed creative team of Ales Kot and Michael Walsh!

The Earth is in danger. And only the world’s most effective secret squad can save it. Too bad that’s NOT the Secret Avengers! Three missions kick off at the same time: one in the air, one on the ground, and one in…space?! And no one is ready for what comes next – except the attackers! Now, Fury, Coulson, Hawkeye, Black Widow, Spider-Woman, Maria Hill, and even the villainous M.O.D.O.K. must work together if they hope to achieve the impossible. But first, they’ll have to survive!

“A possible strength – and also a possible weak spot – lies in the group’s capacity to work together,” says writer Ales Kot in an interview with Marvel.com. “Unless they learn how to do that, they will be picked off one by one. Because something is coming for them. And not just from one direction.”

Personalities clash as the bullets (and arrows) fly this March when the high-stakes, action-packed espionage comes to All-New Marvel NOW! with a bang in SECRET AVENGERS #!

The cover isn't bad but it's not great. The interior art is on the other hand amazing.

I think it's JR. You can usually tell because he's wearing the Super Soldier suit.

Not thrilled about a relaunch but this book's been great. I love Brubaker, but this is what it should have been from the start. Those Avengers never seemed all that secret.

I love that every time Hawkeye is nude, the use his head as censorship.

It's one of my favorite things

Even though he wasn't in SA, I'm glad he's not on Avengers anymore. Keep him as a solo act (or in Bendis' New Avengers :P)

It's JR. If it were Ultimate Nick then this book would be in the UU.

HAWKBLOCK!

Is that the Fury fighting Coulson? When did they bring that magnificently murderous machine back?

Edited by TheManInTheShoe

I didn't notice at first, I wonder what MODOK's part will be and I'm glad Spider-Woman is in this. She's my favorite female superhero.

Edit: Just noticed

This looks really awesome. That art is great and the tone looks fun.

@themanintheshoe: Well in the current Secret Avengers run M.O.D.K. sold out A.I.M. to Hill so he and few of his scientists could get a blab to work in and something else I forgot

Edited by TheManInTheShoe

@frozenedge: I have read the current Secret Avengers but I sometimes find it hard to keep up between the issues.

Posted by The Mighty Monarch

Looks like this book suddenly wants to be Hawkeye.

I liked him better when he was no where near the Avengers. Felt like his storylines were better when the Avengers didn't meddle once in a while.

No. He has to be dead dude. He is more interesting this way.

I guess you're one of the people who "Read Spider-Man but dropped it 15 yrs ago,and picked Superior up,and it seemed interesting,thus Parker is nothing" right?

You mean the Howard Mackie run,the Michelinie run,the 90s.....and all these flowers.......

If you're saying the Lee/David/Defalco/Stern stuff,you're going way back,and it's not comparable.....then Spidey could beat up Firelord.

No, i am one of people who hate One More Day. Parker is toothless. That caused death of hundreds innocents and put whole Earth in danger. And after that because of this "No one dieeees!!!" Parker lost all. He has learned nothing from his mistakes.

I know that SpOck is blinded by arrogance. But when he is't, for example in "Inhumanity - Superior Spider-Man", he is really good.

@rubear: He is.But Peter has morals.He's the one eho carries all this weight on his shoulders.....he is allowed to make some mistakes...

And everyone hated how Pete and MJ were treated in OMD.....don't use it as a valid example,will ya....

@the_stegman: nothing beats his moment when he was nude against the track suits bros.

Edited by HumanRocket

A new jumping on point. Clint in the same team with Black Widow and Spider Woman... You had me at the nude Clint. I'm getting this as my new Avengers book to replace Avengers.

Edited by TheBlackHood

I liked Secret Avengers in the past, but I am getting a little tired of the constant relaucnhes. The previous book had some interesting members with Captain Britain on the team, a little bummed to see this is just a standard Avengers book now.

He is. But to make some mistakes is one thing. Another is to never learn from them... well, he learned something back in black, but all it was erased. Yes, Peter has morals and usually it is good, but sometimes there are Massacres, Jokers and other madmans or crasy revengers. No hero who want to protect people can always keep hands clean. Peter pretends that he can and because of this people dies. That is the problem with Parker.

That pesky floating Hawkeye head...

They are rebooting this as well? Hm, I liked the other Secret Avengers series so far... It's nice they add Spider-Woman to the line-up and I also like the art.

Posted by The_Tree

I'm pretty excited to have Kot and Walsh together again.

Can't wait to see Kot's Iron Patriot as well.
