Thats true, but they better throw up a reminder closer to the date, cause I will forget about this

#6 Posted by G-Man (18876 posts) - - Show Bio

Oh you can be sure of it.  If anything, I should have some info in the news as it approaches.  I'm sure Marvel will send me reminders as well.

Cool, I have yet to make it to a comic store  on free comic book day  :(

If you get chummy with a store, they might save stuff for you.  My local store usually does for me.

I'm reserving my judgment. I hope it's not Ultra Girl, because, well, who cares? She shouldn't be in any incarnation of Avengers.

I agree that Moonstone would be more interesting.

Moonstone has become one of my favorite characters in the strangest way, because I wish she was dead. No other comic book villain has inspired so much hatred from me than her. She is such a rotten to the core person.

Why would you say that.As long as Ultra Girl is alive she has a chance to be an Avenger one day.She is Carol and Tony's prodigy..the Initiative Girl scout.She will be an Avenger one day.

I think she's boring. I was hoping she was the skrull out of her and Thor Girl.

Who is the Spider clone? It don't look like venom in any of the pictures.

Probably one of the Scarlet Spiders

I think one of the best options right now are one of the Scarlet Spiders, Kaine, or Gabriel Stacy
#26 Posted by Slinger (7640 posts) - - Show Bio

Gabe or Kaine would be sweet! Scarlet Spiders would be LAME!

I wonder the significance of Thor.

Thor is not an Avenger so people like Tony will try to convince him to join.  Loki is part of the Evil Illuminati so Thor will play a part.  This is my opinion

Soooo, I guess I'll be the one who asks it. Why does Dark Avenger Wolverine have 2 claws? Does this means it's Daken?

Pretty certain. It confuses me a little though, because I was under the impression that the teams were at odds. Original Sin ended with the Howletts standing side by side.
#30 Posted by Ferro Vida (34678 posts) - - Show Bio

Thats what I heard.

Question

I've been out of the current news for a while. What happened to Clint and Iron Fist?

#31 Posted by Slinger (7640 posts) - - Show Bio

Last I saw of Clint he was SPOILER reunited with Mockingbird, she was confused by the Ronin costume. Danny still has his ongoing, which may explain why he might not be with the Avengers. He's just discovered the eighth capital city of Heaven and may be taking time off for that expedition. Both are mysteries as to whether or not they will be Avengers, or which Avengers team they will be on.

Okay, thanks.

I was thinking that maybe Danny is the new black Spider-man, since he has passed as Peter before.

It is Daken. There is another image with him and he has a third claw coming out from the bottom of his forearm.

Aw man, don't even get my hopes like that again.  I've mentioned this a couple times.  I say BEN REILLY IS STILL ALIVE!!!  Let's go back.  Norman had returned.  Ben and Peter were really close.  Like long lost brothers.  Norman captured Ben and had him beat to a pulp.  Peter came after Norman.  Ben sacrificed himself, fell on a car, and dissolved (to put the clone controversy to rest and stating that Ben was the clone after all).  I call bull$#!*.  Ben was the perfect clone.  He didn't have that lame defect that caused them to decompose/dissolve.  If he didn't have that problem, why would dying make it happen.  Just a bunch of bull.

So why do I say he's alive?  Norman, being the sick and twisted m.f. he is, had another clone made.  He wanted to mess with Peter and make it look like his 'brother' had died for him.  More guilt on Peter (even though he apparently got over it quickly).  All this time, Ben's been kept locked up waiting for the next step in Norman's plan.  That's why he started sweating bullets when he first was with the Thunderbolts and heard mention of the Scarlet Spider.  He's was probably flipping out wondering how he could've escaped from where ever he's being kept.

In my dreams, right?

That wouldn't be too farfetched seeing how OMD &  NWTD has been going.

That sounds like a reasonable explanation to me, i never bought how easily he was killed either.
