From Marvel: “The Avengers have assembled and the villainous Kang has revealed that they must travel to the future to save their own children from destroying the universe! Yes, the entire universe. But it will take one more Avenger to make the trip complete. Who is the newest hero to join the ranks of the Avengers true? And why is the once-great hero Wonder Man hell-bent on stopping the Avengers at every turn? Backup feature: Another brand new oral history of the Avengers chapter by Bendis!”

Inkers: Pallot & Hennessy

From Marvel: “Spidey & Wolverine. Perfect match & a simple job, right? All Spider-Man has to do is follow Wolverine for one day and report what he does. What could go wrong with that? How about the fact that Wolverine is not fond of being followed, or that he draws Spider-Man into a chaotic battle with a crime family, a battle that could cost Spider-Man his life? And will Spider-Man’s salvation be Wolverine, or the Blonde Phantom, or Bullseye… the man who never misses?”

As much as I like Bendis and his handling of the Avengers, I see no reason why Wolverine needs to be on TWO Avenger teams.

New Avengers makes sense — that’s where he been for five years, but a second Avengers lineup with Wolverine just seems a bit much. It’s not like Marvel has a paucity of heroes!

i agree with you on this one, i also think that spidey shouldn’t be with the avengers.

new avengers seem to deal with the street type conflicts and that’s where the two of them fit.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
