There is seriously nothing here that even looks remotely interesting to me. This looks like the same mediocre stuff that Marvel has been putting out for the past few years, and honestly I'm quite tired of it...

If they want a team of young heroes, that's what the Young Avengers are for. Leave THE Avengers to the grown ups.

I feel like Whiplash was underused. Despite the flaws in Iron Man 2, I feel that if they had kept him alive he could have developed into a more dangerous villain.

So Bucky's here just because? Seems odd that everyone else has done something against Doom, yet Bucky seems to just be thrown in randomly.

I'm curious as to how this will be done though. Like with Doctor Who, will we be getting separate books focusing on different Assassin's like Ezio, Connor, Arno, etc. or will it be one main book that will jump around and focus on various Assassins?

I hope it's the one main book.

Personally I'd just love to have a book that focuses on Arno Dorian (my favorite Assassin) that is set after the events of Unity.

Also why Arno ? He's like a poor man's Ezio.

I don't because I don't believe one book would give any of the characters enough spotlight. Having multiple books focusing on the various Assassins throughout history would give each character space to breath and flesh out their stories, allowing fans to following their favorite Assassins and not having to read about characters they may or may not care about.

Because he's my favorite Assassin. His story in Unity was actually pretty good and seeing him fight to win France back from the chaos caused by the Templars following the events of Unity, maybe even exploring possibly adventures Arno could have had outside of Paris could make for for some interacting stories.

I'm not saying I wouldn't want an Ezio story or a story focusing on Connor, whom many fans actually want know more about as his life is pretty much left in the dark following the events of AC3. But personally, if they are going to focus on the various Assassins, I would like to see one focusing on Arno's story.

Titan Comics is already doing this with Doctor Who, having multiple titles following the adventures of the Tenth, Eleventh, and Twelfth Doctors. So I could see them doing something similar with Assassin's Creed.

@war_killer: Why would it be confusing lol. They could easily refer to her as Carol, just like they refer to Iron Man as Tony or Hawkeye as Clint/Barton.

Because they would still have TWO Captains on the team, and at some point they would refer to them by their codename which would just be weird. Not to mention marketing for the team would even be weirder.

In all honesty, there was nothing wrong with the name "Ms. Marvel" and why Marvel decided to change her name to "Captain Marvel" has always seemed odd to me and is something I've personally have never been a fan of.

I honestly find the idea of The Avengers taking in teenage kids in as members of the team to be out-of-character for them. One thing Marvel has never been big on is teenage sidekicks, which is one of the reasons Stan Lee chose to kill Bucky off when he brought Cap back in Avengers #4 (Vol.1).

And while these younger heroes aren't sidekicks like Robin or Kid Flash, they are still kids and the idea of The Avengers allowing them to fight big-time villains seems very reckless on their part and very out of character.

I feel like if Marvel wanted to give these characters some more spotlight, they could instead bring back the Young Avengers with characters like Miles and Nova being a part of the new line-up, leaving the main Avengers team for the big boys (and girls).

I have zero issues with this. Unlike some, when things in the movies/TV shows work I have no issues with Marvel incorporating them into the comics. Personally I like the idea of Daisy being an Inhuman.

i have to admit, they really had me fooled when they announced a Red Hood DLC

Same, it just seemed way to obvious that it would be Jason. Honestly, I'm not that disappointed. Fans were upset that Jason was left out of previous Arkham games, so not only having him appear in a DLC but also having him play a major role in the game is pretty nice of them towards the fans.
