If you've read the first issue of UNCANNY AVENGERS, you know we already have quite the roster. The roster currently consists of Havok, Captain America, Wolverine, Rogue, Thor and Scarlet Witch. It was a little odd that Cap asked Havok to lead this squad despite other leaders such as himself, Wolverine and Rogue being on the team. We also saw some conflict between Rogue and Scarlet Witch.

To make things more complicated, it's been announced that in issue #5, Rick Remender will be adding three more characters to the roster.

Wasp, Wonder Man and Sunfire are coming to the team. We've already seen that apparently Wonder Man has been forgiven for his action against the team in the pages of THE AVENGERS.

It was mentioned that Wolverine and Sunfire have some "business" to resolve. Wonder Man will be a pacifist and P.R. guy for the team. Perhaps we'll see the return of his feelings for Scarlet Witch? Wasp will provide funding for the team so they don't have to rely on "government mandates."

It was also announced that Olivier Coipel will be filling in for John Cassaday on the issue. This all sounds pretty interesting.

What happened? When did Sunfire stop looking like his AoA self and being a bad guy?

#2 Posted by G-Man (18895 posts) - - Show Bio

@Dernman: Guess we'll find out.

Thats a decent cover but i don't understand why its taking so long for cassidy to draw these issues. This isn't a complex cover at all. Will issue 5 come out on time?

Nice, its the Avengers plus 3 X-men lol

Not exactly the mix I had hoped, however I do like Havok, Wonder Man and Sunfire being in the mix

Oh god Sunfires costume is just has bad as Havok

#11 Posted by MadeinBangladesh (8048 posts) - - Show Bio

Wasp!!!! but I don't like this book that much. Too overrated. I can't believe this sold more than 300k.

#12 Posted by Sleepbutnodream15 (570 posts) - - Show Bio

This makes me less excited for things to come. I hate Wonder Man! Seriously? His powers are so lame and generic. And I really like Sunfire, but this costume sucks. His AoA costume was awesome. The team was perfect before...sigh. But, Rick always knowns what he's doing.

#13 Posted by Nova`Prime` (4165 posts) - - Show Bio

The addition of Sunfire is cool, but I would have liked it more if they brought Firestar back into the Avengers fold.

#14 Posted by DJ1107 (244 posts) - - Show Bio

Sunfire's back. FINALLY!!

#15 Posted by Sleepbutnodream15 (570 posts) - - Show Bio

Also, I have a feeling that artists are slowly and subtly gonna stop using the new Captain America design and go back to that out-dated chain mail looking thing. C'mon Cassady!

#16 Posted by HexThis (924 posts) - - Show Bio

I'm excited that Cap, Wanda, and Wasp are back together again! It's like it's the 60's again!

#17 Posted by RalfvdH (651 posts) - - Show Bio

Coipel on this issue and in combination with Rick Remender ...:) SOLD!! At least for this issue.... Just kinda hope they will change the costume design of Sunfire a bit....

#18 Edited by SolthesunGod (278 posts) - - Show Bio

Shouldn't Marvel have held off releasing this info since the second issue still hasn't come out? It basically spoilers for issue 5 too early.

#19 Posted by SmashBrawler (5978 posts) - - Show Bio

Ah, yes. It's been a while since I last saw Sunfire... and he's still wearing the head of a roadkilled cat fish as a mask. Some things never change.

#22 Posted by LordRequiem (1323 posts) - - Show Bio

not digging sunfire look i already miss the aoa look but i will gave it a read

#27 Posted by chalkshark (1195 posts) - - Show Bio

I support any decision that puts Sunfire into a regular monthly title. That cat's been around since the 70's & is still one of the most underutilized of all Marvel's characters. Wonderman is redundant in the same team with Thor. He's clearly only on hand to serve as a romantic foil for the Scarlet Witch, a relationship I never much cared for. Happy to see the Wasp find purchase with this team. I'd like to see Quicksilver & Banshee on this roster.

Yeah... I know Banshee's dead. It's comics. One line of type brings him back.

She is a famous clothes designer and Fashion guru. There must be some money in that...

Have you given a try. Aside from some problems I have with the art the book is great. The story is really compelling and the inclusion of some "secondary" mutants like Havok and Sunfire writes as something really interesting.

This makes me want to keep reading even more... but I do agree with you. Some of those costume designs NEED to change. Like Rogue's, Havok's and now Sunfire's. (I do like Wanda's though.)

I hate this book so much. The story feels so generic and obvious. Too bad I'm too much of a Rogue fan so I can't drop this book. To make things worst, Wasp is in the team, I can't miss it, even though I wanted to.

#30 Posted by velvetmeds (83 posts) - - Show Bio

I don't understand. Two mentions of "i hate this book" but there's only been one issue. How can anyone hate it so soon?

#31 Posted by Danial79 (2325 posts) - - Show Bio

I've never even heard of Sunfire, so I guess I'll give it a go to see what he's all about... though I found #1 to be pretty average.

#32 Posted by Gambit1024 (9843 posts) - - Show Bio

Cool characters, but I won't be picking this series up. I just wasn't into that first issue.

#33 Posted by Solarflare32 (393 posts) - - Show Bio

I thought sunfire was sinisters bitch now

#34 Posted by matt_cable (43 posts) - - Show Bio

SO many winged/flared helmets and masks!

Im so glad the Wasp will be in a title! Now if there could only be a permanent title for Hank....

What the f%&k.

Wonder Man's been pardoned? Wanda's been pardoned? Yet Cyclops is the most wanted man on the planet? BULLSH!T.

Also, Sunfire tried to kill the X-Men last time we saw him. Ridiculous.

@chalkshark: See the above post regarding Wasp. Spoilers abound.

So does this mean wonderman's not crazy anymore?

#43 Posted by Cap10nate (2732 posts) - - Show Bio

So Cap is back in his old uniform again. I guess they aren't going for consistency in Marvel Now since this has to be his 6th uniform in the Now teasers, issues, and covers.

#44 Posted by HushoftheWind (1113 posts) - - Show Bio

So far, Cap's best costume is the one in his own book in the marvel now. this look like a poor man version of that

#45 Posted by dreamfall31 (579 posts) - - Show Bio

Bummed it got delayed two weeks, but I am lookin forward to seeing what happens!

#46 Posted by RedheadedAtrocitus (6836 posts) - - Show Bio

Makes me immensely more interested in the series now...

#47 Posted by Vincie_Pooh (109 posts) - - Show Bio

yeah!? So Wasp never did die they say. Sweet they got some power house players on the team. I love that there bringing in Wonder Man. I hope Simon won't go crazy. He's a good character. And for Sunfire, great choice! Wish he can look like his Age of Apocalypse outfit... but then he did look like that in the main stream when he was a horse men. Hey Rick Remender who else you gonna put on the team? I wanna see She-Hulk or Kitty pride on this team. Love this news.

#48 Posted by Matchstick (565 posts) - - Show Bio

...you had me at Sunfire.

#49 Posted by zackattack529 (1404 posts) - - Show Bio

Sorry i am not a fan of that art.

I think Id much rather go with Hickman's writing and Openas Art style.

Why is the leader of the team so far back in the artwork?
