Marvel NOW! Teaser: Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie are "AMATEURS"

Posted by G-Man (29418 posts) - - Show Bio

Marvel has just released another teaser for an upcoming Marvel NOW! title. Yesterday we saw a teaser for Frank Cho with the word "Savage." Today's teaser involves Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie.

This clearly is dealing with some inexperienced heroes. I'm going to take a guess that we might see some sort of NEW MUTANTS relaunch or something similar. Any ideas?

maybe, that seems to be the most obvious thing.

I'm really, really, REALLY hopeful for this book.

I hope the team is awesome. (Please have Transonic.)

I think these teasers were put together by Amateurs. Is Marvel just now discovering the art of changing font styles?

i wish they would just bring back the young avengers or even the young x-men team (hellion, surge and all the ones who aren't dead) into a new monthly.

if anything maybe this deals with the brand new mutants being born now?

Is Wolverine and the X-Men being cancelled ? Could this be relater to the Jean Grey School ?

This is the first Marvel Now book I'm 100% on from jump street.

Seriously? We already know that this is in reference to the new title with Wiccan, Kid Loki, and Miss America. C'mon, G-Man.

#11 Posted by fullmetalquach (94 posts) - - Show Bio

the Young Avengers hopefully!

#12 Posted by GR2Blackout (2564 posts) - - Show Bio

Power Pack, Young Avengers, MC2...

#13 Posted by The_Grey_Queen (62 posts) - - Show Bio

i think this is the comic that features Loki, Miss America, and Wiccan, from the point one teasers.

Well I know Gillen has been doing a great job writing Loki in Journey into Mystery, and from some of the other promotional items I've seen Loki has been teamed up with what looks like Wiccan and another young hero, so I'm leaning towards a Young Avengers type. And if Gillen is writing a series like that with Loki I will definitely pick it up.

I'd really like to see another title like the old New X-Men series. Really would like to see more character development on the students.

#22 Posted by sweetesttoaster (144 posts) - - Show Bio

Well that's another Marvel Now title I'm picking up...

@theTimeStreamer: the only one I liked was zero

#24 Posted by neiliusprime (242 posts) - - Show Bio

Young Avengers with Kid Loki, Miss America, and Wiccan, but I hope they expand the team

#25 Posted by JoseDRiveraTCR7 (1005 posts) - - Show Bio

As long as Gillen is writing it I'm buying it.

#26 Posted by RedheadedAtrocitus (6885 posts) - - Show Bio

Sure don't know what this will be, but still I'm intrigued.

Its not a big deal Tony, You have your own life as well as try to manage this site which there is a shopping list of things to do as well as try to score interviews with writers and come up with stuff on podcasts. *Thumbs Up*

But yeah the title looks interesting, Ill definitely read it off of a friend when it comes out or read it off the shelf when im at work.

@G-Man: No apologies necessary! I didn't mean to come off rude. Honestly, I could probably stand to be a little less obsessive about anything at all involving Wiccan / Young Avengers. <3

Kieron Giellen is writting so its going to be on my pull list, ive been reading everything he has put put, he is one of my favorite Marvel writers putting books out right now next to Remender and Hickman.

Top 5 marvel writers:

1. Rick Remender

2. Johnathan Hickman

3. Ed brubaker

4. Greg Ruca

5. Mark Waid.

^^^ if any of these guys are writing books in the MarvelNow im picking them up :)

New Mutants are far from amateurs

#34 Posted by GothamRed (2561 posts) - - Show Bio

@Vermoot: no wolverine and the x-men should still be going, it's a new enough series that it doesn't have to be restarted for new readers in Marvel NOW

#35 Posted by lorex (928 posts) - - Show Bio

I would not mind a book focused on the younger X-Men or on the Young Avengers. One other thought that comes to mind is 'Amatures' might refer to a group of unknown people with superpowers. This could be a reference to a group of newly repowered mutants in the aftermath of AvX.

What about the Runaways?

#37 Posted by nappystr8 (927 posts) - - Show Bio

Clearly this is for the new Young Avengers book, or whatever they are going to call it. Which is awesome because with Avengers Academy replaced by Avengers Arena, I needed a new Marvel teen series fix. Also happy that Gillen is onboard because I haven't had a chance to read any of his work yet, and I hear he's good.

#38 Posted by JoseDRiveraTCR7 (1005 posts) - - Show Bio

@Wolverine0628: I don't think the Runaways are coming back any time soon.

Transonic, Helion, Mercury, Rockslide, Anole... they all deserve a chance... and most of them have been sidelined for waaaaay too long...

If there's one thing I hate about Marvel, its that they make too many great characters but never find the right balance to use them all!

Mercury is fantastic.

Highly doubting that.

But it'll include Miss America, so i'm good.

About Time. Wiccan, Kid Loki, Miss America and who else I wonder

@zackattack529: Waid id staying on Daredevil and is also writing Indestructable Hulk. And I know that Hickman is moving over to Avengers. Not sure about the others though.
