Here is our very first glimpse inside Nick Spencer's new Avengers comic, which features Nick Fury leading a covert strike team including Hawkeye, Black Widow, The Hulk, The Winter Soldier, Maria Hill and Phil Coulson. Check out some pencils and variant covers..

“The Most Dangerous Secrets We Have... Are The Ones We Keep From Ourselves.” The new Nick Fury leads a covert Avengers strike team including but not limited to Hawkeye, Black Widow, The Hulk, The Winter Soldier, Maria Hill and Phil Coulson on missions so dangerous, even the team members themselves can’t know about them!

So THAT'S what was going on in Budapest! Pick up Secret Avengers #1 in February, and to hear more about it from Nick Spender, click the link back to Newsarama below.

dubWookWook, Google "Adblock", 2 second download, abracadabra. Or, continue whining about it...your choice.

Surely that's not Normie?
BigDamnHero - 12/12/2012, 1:54 PM
I may pick this up, mainly because Taskmaster is such an insanely cool character.
TheManWithoutFear - 12/12/2012, 2:02 PM
That is not Nick Fury
dellamorte1872 - 12/12/2012, 2:04 PM
interesting roster...HULK,IRON PATRIOT (who i assume is Rhodey), HAWKEYE, SAMUEL L. FURY, BLACK WIDOW, MARIA HILL, AND...IS THAT "AGENT COULSEN"?!? thats kinda humorous if this title is that pop culturally influenced it changes on a whim lol
dellamorte1872 - 12/12/2012, 2:10 PM
Im sorry but DAREDEVIL is a prime candidate for this team. he is THE anti-hero with lil respect. MK even hangs with the AVENGERS y'know? but DAREDEVIL never gets involved. which is a shame is SPIDEY is brandied about as a key player. But definitely Daredevil over HAWKEYE (whose around enough in numerous titles), and DR STRANGE insteada the COULSON GUY in the middle. then that would be secret YET avengerish
TheManWithoutFear - 12/12/2012, 2:11 PM
Seriously, does anybody know where actual Nick Fury is these days? Is there a book with him in or what?
scapegoatjones - 12/12/2012, 2:15 PM
[frick]ing Iron Patriot.
it's like Cap America screwed a Yaris.

dellamorte1872 - 12/12/2012, 2:17 PM
BUT thats def one corny team. wheres the drama? i bet there a love triangle between WIDOW, HAWKEYE + WINTER SOLDIER. will any happen to ANY character? only ancillary ones...MARIA HILL, COULSON and SAMMY L. FURY. they'll tease drama with the other characters but theyre involved elsewhere. so....those are the 3 characters who will really develop the tone for the book
dellamorte1872 - 12/12/2012, 2:19 PM
this IS the "film" AVENGERS inspired roster
scapegoatjones - 12/12/2012, 3:13 PM
maybe more of a consideration for the TV Shield series, with cameos.

oh yeah and,

Where's Taskmaster? I thought he was part of the roster.
marvel72 - 12/12/2012, 5:35 PM
might be worth a look,i'm a big fan of both the hulk & the iron patriot.

@ darkangel90

i read the same thing on this very site that taskmaster was on the team.
unknownfacts - 12/12/2012, 6:13 PM
Covert ops with the Hulk now that an oxymoron. Though when things goes south it's good to have him in a fire fight.
Bandido - 12/12/2012, 7:13 PM
Hmm idk i think ill rather get my hawkeye fix thru fractions hawkeye

@Marvel72: hey man hows it going? Did u get batman 15 by any chance?
GLprime2814 - 12/12/2012, 10:26 PM
Budapest so their tying in the movies more and more, specially with black fury, and yes I know he's his "son"
mgeoff88 - 12/13/2012, 12:00 AM
That's bad ass the characters look like their movie counterparts.

I'm picking this up! What happens in Budapest, doesn't stay in Budapest. :P
dellamorte1872 - 12/13/2012, 5:02 AM
that would be a decent addition too. then this team would be secretive yet second tiered characters.


then that team is original. it can pull off more suspense b/c more of the characters are ancillary this way
dellamorte1872 - 12/13/2012, 6:55 AM
played right that could be the AVENGERS C list. AVENGERS (BEING THE BEST) and NEW AVENGERS (being the B-list Avengers like LUKE CAGE + IRON FIST)

I´m with you, my toothles, lolypop loving old bat.
IronHood - 12/13/2012, 4:51 PM
Hey look it's Marcus Johnson! Nick Fury's son! Oh what's that marvel? He's Just Nick Fury Jr.? And your never going to use the Jr. when someone brings up his name? Figures...

Sorry, we'll always know who it is. & I will gladly tell younger people that's Nick Fury's son. So sorry you can't keep Original Nick Fury locked in the closet like you intended Marvel! :D:D

Samuel L. Fury, nice.

As people have been saying, this is basically the movie influenced Avengers team. And if you switch out Hulk for Sharon Carter, Iron Patriot for Falcon and Coulson for Captain America, you have the cast of the Captain America sequel in that second last picture. Its a smaller SHIELD controlled Avengers spin-off from the main team

And of course, that new Iron Patriot is probably Rhodey, to match it up with the MCU.

And from the previous Secret Avengers series, why didnt they bring back Moon Knight, Sharon Carter, Captain Britain, Human Torch, Henry Pym and Venom (sure I know Venom is going to be in Thunderbolts but if Iron Man, Wolverine and Spider-Man can be on a handful of different teams, so can he!) to join the team
