It all starts this October when Jason Aaron and Russell Dauterman bring the thunder in Thor #1. Bereft of his mighty magic hammer Mjölnir, Thor must contend with a new God of Thunder in the Marvel Universe – and she’s unlike anything you’ve ever seen before! Who is this new mysterious leading lady? Not even Odin knows! Prepare for a senses-shattering new beginning as the all-new Thor thunders her way through the Marvel Universe!

Then, Avengers NOW! soars to new heights in All-New Captain America #1! From superstar creators Rick Remender and Stuart Immonen comes the next evolution of the Captain America mythos. Drained of the Super-Soldier Serum, the frail Steve Rogers has handpicked his shield-wielding successor – Sam Wilson, the Falcon! But as the winged warrior assumes his new heroic mantle, he’ll have to contend with a gauntlet of Captain America’s most terrifying foes! Can the new, untested Captain America stand up to his predecessor’s most vile villains? Find out this November in All-New Captain America #1!

It only gets bolder from there as the billionaire playboy unleashes his dark side in Superior Iron Man #1! Rising comic stars Tom Taylor and Yildray Cinar craft an all-new tale of a Tony Stark you’ve never seen before! Releasing the dangerous Extremis technology to the citizens of San Francisco, he’ll transform the City by the Bay into the City of Tomorrow! But at what price? And what does a world look like when it’s consumed by technology? Find out this November in Superior Iron Man #1!

Not a fan of any of the Big Three in terms of their comics, probably won't read any of them.

I voted Thor based on the strength of Jason Aaron's Thor run so far. I like some of Remender's stuff but his Cap run didn't really grab me and I don't have much of an opinion yet on Tom Taylor since I haven't read any of his work.

All-New Captain America-Remender has been great with Falcon and Ian Zola will be returning as well.

The only thing that looks cool out of this mess is--Thor the Unworthy.

Tom Taylor is writing Iron Man. He has my trust. The others do not.

Thor is the only boom here I'm interested in reading. Remender's cap has been god awful and I zero faith that he will turn it around. Iron Man on the other hand is just kind of bland to me. The morally abgiuous hero concept has just wrapped so what possibly could they bring to the table?

Voted for "I don't like any of them". Not because of the changes though. I think the changes could be fun. I just don't care for those characters in general.

#13 Edited by RiscazZ (10 posts) - - Show Bio

General opinion is still: This is the most retarded thing anyone has ever seen.

Ok, Capt America losing his place, totally with it, then they decided to shove into anyone and everyone's face "oh, look at us, we're so in touch with modern society and so fair with minorities/sex quota" - by piling on top of the fairness and equality bandwagon so blatantly like this.

Realistically? You're all full of crap.

This isn't what comics are about. People may have a favorite writer, artist, people may like a comic for the concept, but in the end of the day, they are brought in because of an icon, an hero, or a villain, a small character that they identify themselves with.

With all the need for comics to change and adapt to the new era, I personally miss the days when I had pleasure reading comics because it made sense, the surprises were legitimate and were not there to shock or to please the corporate vultures, or to be accessible to minorities.

But alas, that is my piece, and I just had it.

#14 Posted by ShadowX (1207 posts) - - Show Bio

I picked Thor just cause I like mythological stuff more but 'm equally excited for thor and captain america.

What I'm most excited about is seeing Scarlet witch on that cover.

#15 Posted by Twentyfive (2845 posts) - - Show Bio

Cap and Thor excite me the most. HYPE!!

#16 Posted by Spidey_Jackson (2777 posts) - - Show Bio

Not interested in any of these. Marvel's constant renumbering is very annoying.

Bucky Barnes the winter soldier.

@phaedrusgr: lol, the new Thor shall now be referred to as Princess Thor.

#19 Posted by CaseyJustice (20 posts) - - Show Bio

Very excited about Captain Falcon. Never been a huge Remender fan, but the combo of character, artist and concept have got me hyped.

Also, hilarious to see some people so mad about Marvel trying to be "accessable to minorities." God forbid.

#20 Posted by War Killer (20292 posts) - - Show Bio

Out of the three listed, I'm excited to see what comes out of the Superior Iron Man series, and despite being probably the minority, I'm interested in where the go with this female Thor.

But out of all of the characters shown on the Avengers Now! promo, Winter Soldier is the one I'm truly excited for the most and can't wait to read his new series!!! ^__^

#21 Posted by Captain13 (3564 posts) - - Show Bio

No, I don't care because it's a short term gimmick option, lol?

#22 Edited by micah (2634 posts) - - Show Bio

I voted for Superior Iron Man, glad Marvel is trying something new and mixing it up. Unfortunately now they have to deal with the "I don't like change" crowd.

I'm most exited for Iron Man, hopefully that'll get me into Iron Man books.

#24 Posted by The_Tree (7946 posts) - - Show Bio

None, really. Thor and Iron Man are both Marvel characters that I don't really care for. I might check out Cap since I like Remender, but I don't feel too strongly on it (and that's not because Falcon's Cap, either).

Thor, maybe the rest too.

#27 Posted by Ongzhikai (3 posts) - - Show Bio

I really like the "Big three" but lately I just haven't had any enthusiasm for anything that has been done with them. I feel like rather than trying to find new and compelling ways to make the characters and their stories interesting they simply recycle the same old sensationalistic crap like replacing them with a B-lister or making male characters female/replacing them with a female character. We just got Cap back after he was replaced by Bucky of all people (granted this worked out well and made Bucky legitimately cool), and now he is being replaced again?!?! Thor is no longer worthy to be... Thor?!?! That's like saying Bob in accounting let his license go so now he can no longer use his stapler and is no longer Bob because now Jill has his stapler and will now be called Bob. Jill will not be allowed to build her own reputation because she needs to be Bob to help the companies bottom line and bring in more female interest in accounting. Ironman I feel is also not the right way to go. I feel like each time a new story arc comes up for Tony they just give him a new upgrade to his tech and a subsequent upgrade to his arrogance. Why do the other Avengers even work with him anymore? He is likely to attempt to force you into giving up your identity, forcing you to "upgrade" by using his tech against your will, or incarcerate you based on his track record in the last few years. He seems to be evolving into a technologically transendant being or a cosmic level D-bag or both. Please Marvel, stop making our heroes into D-Bags and villains and stop switching their genders. You want to appeal to minorities and women/girls? Pay them the respect they are due and create compelling minority and female characters that stand on their own and speak to what these demographics value instead of dumping them into another characters legacy.

I'm excited for all of them because I trust in Marvel.

People take this stuff way too seriously. No one is dying. No one is forcing you to read these comics.You have 50 years of back issues to catch up on if you don't like the new direction. Wait a year or two and everything will be status quo-ed.

Revel in the new direction before it goes away.

I am excited for all three.

But probably Falcon Cap the most...

#32 Edited by AmazingWebHead (4364 posts) - - Show Bio

I miss the days of consistency

#33 Edited by ScrappyDont27 (171 posts) - - Show Bio

Falcon cap looks cool and so does the unworthy Thor design, I only read Captain America out of these books so he is the only one I have a real opinion on. Just hope we get some good stories out of Sam Wilson as Cap and not worrying to Much as pretty sure Steve will be back in a year or less.

Character designs and creative teams aren't enough. I need to see more first

But I'm interested in Cap the most.

Dr Strange, hope his series gets a top notch creative team.

The only character I'm anywhere near caring about on that team is Dr. Strange.

But seriously, Medusa? Really?

It's not a team. It's promo for Marvel Now characters who are going to be getting attention.

It's more like, Thor in first place, then Captain America, followed by Iron Man. I'm excited for all of them, but substantially more for Thor.

Still better then what there doing to batgirl over at DC.

I will likely not read any of them, but it's nice to see Tom Taylor working on something this big.

#45 Posted by leokearon (1785 posts) - - Show Bio

These changes aren't permanent. Change the characters for a while, drum up controversy and sells and then bring back the original when the movie comes out to entice the old and new readers.

wow, the dc fanboys are in full effect for this vote

I will read none but Bucky Barnes: The Winter Soldier, from what's coming in Marvel. Oh well, shame shame shame. *hides money*

What's happening with Dr Strange? Is he getting a series!?!

Also, is that Mike Peterson Deathlok?
