The comic industry has undergone a renaissance this past year, starting with the launch of the new Thor #1 last fall.

I think you're giving yourselves a little too much credit.

Yeah, it's a stretch. "We've been trying a lot of new things since Thor #1 and we're excited about them" I'd buy (and I do like the general direction Marvel is going). But instigating a renaissance? Slow yourself, Marvel.

EXO armor by 3Dmodel company Xurge (and clumsily posed by me):

Not clones obviously, but there are certainly some design similarities (with chunkier Iron Man parts put on top).

Not great, sloppy, lacking anything iconic.Glasses are just silly.

But then like all the post-Convergence stuff, it's not going to last long, so why worry about it?

They should have had one token guy to reflect the absurdity of outdated books like the original Avengers, original X-Men, and the New 52 Justice League...

Story looks cool, Superman needs things shaken up every once in a while to keep him interesting. I like the art.

Apparently good hair is one of the powers he's lost, though.

As with anything, it depends on the writing (I'm optimistic in this case). Art looks great.

And disco Dazzler is so much better than the Bendis emo Dazzler.

It may be a spinoff in the way Law and Order had spinoffs: new characters, only tangentially related.

I'm also suspicious that "the real SHIELD" will turn out to be "the SHIELD controlled by whatever that mysterious cargo in the carrier was that they were supposed to blow up," fwiw.

Be curious to see what other Avengers books come out: there are 5 at the moment, so this is certainly not going to be the only one, and these are certainly not going to be the only Avengers.

Mark Waid's in the competent-but-meh category for me, not hugely excited for this.

So, no mutants in this or the new Avengers book, right?

Hope the rest of the FF find books, too.

Could be great, could be awful, depends on the writer. Any word?
