70's Avengers prequel

Definitely not the best I've seen, but not horrible either.
And I don't like how Spider-Man looks freaking HUGE in the new TV series. Remember that concept artwork last year that showed him being really muscular and 6 feet tall? That's not Spidey. Hope they changed it.

90's Avengers
90's Avengers, If Marvel had to make the Avengers from just their movie and T.V. properties in the 90's it would have been......odd.

Ron Lim's artwork was at its best when he drew the Infinity War limited series. The Infinity Crusade series was not as well drawn though.

Ironman53- which one? East side or west side?

LOL there is no ground...they're just walking or jumping in the clouds...
supernaturalfreak - 2/18/2012, 9:03 AM
okay I've seen like 4 different iron man armors for this movie, which one is going to be in it!?
skidz - 2/18/2012, 9:44 AM
Why do the movie tie-ins always look this awful?
CaptainRon - 2/18/2012, 10:11 AM
Great stuff, Bodwulf!
TheGambitFreak - 2/18/2012, 10:47 AM
Man, I'm just hoping this doesn't turn into a "Fear itself" crapfest.

Anyway, I recentely found out about a certain character 's fate in "The Avengers!"

The Avengers (Black Widow)

Aunt May and the Mole Man?...
Bodwulf - 2/18/2012, 12:31 PM
Not a bad idea tea!

@teabag Fully Assembled
Avengers Assembled 1990, What if the Avengers movie had been made in the 90's
SageMode - 2/18/2012, 2:48 PM
I really wish they would use this as Cap's updated costume in the 616 universe. He seriously needs an upgraded look
Bodwulf - 2/18/2012, 3:43 PM
@teabag decided to keep the FF in their own group. :)
Fantastic Four 90's, Marvel comics movie make for cheap in the 90's
mgeoff88 - 2/18/2012, 3:48 PM
I like that Marvel is making tie-in comics for the movie.

I'm not sure about the cover though. Thor looks much older than Chris Hemsworth and Hawkeye looks weird.

@Bodwulf Those are pretty cool, man. The 90's one would be really interesting.

marvelguy - 2/18/2012, 9:57 PM
Why does everyone use @ when this isn't Twitter?!
Cartoon22 - 2/18/2012, 10:25 PM
@marvelguy because this site doesnt have a reply button like youtube does so u have to put @ to who ever ur replying to
luckylu - 2/19/2012, 2:18 AM
hawkeye looks stupid
Boyle360 - 2/19/2012, 3:37 PM
This site really needs a proper reply system. I hate having to constantly check if anyone has replied to my comments or left comments on my articles. It's very annoying.
marvelguy - 2/19/2012, 7:15 PM

I just address people similarly to letter writing. See?
