Critically acclaimed writer Rick Remender kicks his explosive run on Secret Avengers in style in Secret Avengers #21.1! Joined by superstar artist Patrick Zircher, Remender sends Captain America’s covert strike force into the belly of the beast as he and Hawkeye uncover a huge threat to the Marvel Universe. The two must break into Red Light Nation, a country run by criminals FOR criminals, to stop an evil plot from breaching the border…headed up by an all-new Masters of Evil?! No fan can miss this perfect jumping on point as Remender and Zircher take the Secret Avengers on action packed thrill ride uncovering the dark underbelly of the Marvel Universe. It all begins next month in Secret Avengers #21.1!

Just jumped onto the Rick Remender bandwagon because of the news that he was taking over Secret Avengers. Love his Uncanny X-force and Venom comics. Look forward to seeing him tie them all together for an arc.

Yay for Remender, Boo for Hawkeye's costume.

I really, really hope that we get a humorous Natasha/Clint dynamic throughout this series. It was amusing during Widowmaker, especially with Mockingbird around.

@Roldan: They probably wanted it to look more like the costume in the upcoming movie. Maybe it goes back to normal after the summer is over.

I really, really agree about that. I love Black Widow and Clint, not that I'd want them together anymore because Bucky > Clint, but I think that they have awesome interactions with each other.

I wanna see how Venom is introduced into the secret avengers.

See, I'm a bastard who just wants Natasha to mess around with Clint like in the old days. xD
 
*The old days* 

"Clint, you're sexy."
"Damn straight."
"Actually, Tony Stark is more sexy."
"I'm gonna go kick the crap out of him!"
 
Ahhh creativity at it's finest.

@RainEffect: LOL. I'm reading Avengers Essential and that's pretty much how it goes. Clint can't even tie his goddam shoelaces or socialize like a normal person when Natasha 'betrayed' the USA. LMAO.

I'm glad Clints suit is slightly more purple than Caps otherwise there is no way I could of told them apart.

It looks like this is going to be a decent run, but what's up with Remender putting Giant-Man on the Secret Avengers? He doesn't seem the best for black ops, and they already had O'Grady for shrinking and stuff.

Posted by BritishMonkey

this looks pretty good

Posted by yumyumbubblegum

Remender, I love you, but this is cutting it too close to Ultimate Comics: Avengers. Steer clear of the Steve and Clint dynamic. Plus I thought the whole point of Secret Avengers was to be covert; the only thing that remotely hides Barton's identity are his see acrylic shades.

Not bad!

Reading the Secret Avengers profiles on marvel.com for each character in the line up and why Rick chose them and where he's taking them has really stoked me up for this series. Bring on the secret squad! (especially since he hints that they and X-Force will have a clash)

It looks like Ultimate Hawkeye has just crossed over Marvel 616. :P

Posted by Radread

This also marks the return of the Masters of Evil. Can't wait!

Posted by lemontron

I can not wait for this.

Posted by fivestarga

Well, these panels actually catch my attention. Could be interesting.

One of the reason's why Marvel is still afloating. "Mr. Rick Remender"

Posted by Eyz

Awww...Hawkeye reverted to this Ultimate-ysh costume? "Movie tie-in" anyone? XD

Posted by mikeclark1982

why are there so many .1 issues? it is beginning to irk me. .1 is the new 1/2 issues.

Posted by DATNIGGA

Nothing is better for black ops & secrecy than a guy wearing bright blue & red with a star on his chest SMH lol

Posted by Or35ti

This is gonna get good.

Posted by daredeville

Woohoo! And then Gabriel Hardman for the rest of the comics! Woohoo! Psyched!

These were the exact words I was about to use.

Why did this f*cker take moon knight off the team?

Posted by jaredbright

Zircher is a good artist. I'm not digging the background colors. Maybe not the forground colors either. People here are right about Ronin's mask... er, Hawkeye's mask. Wait, why was Ronin.

###&(#(*&&(! The New Avengers better not be going to Japan to find someone named Ronin again. I reread some of that the other night and I realized why I quit reading New Avengers back then. :)

"WOOO! We're fighting Ninjas!":)
