That helmet looked better in the films
HeadPool420 - 11/29/2012, 11:40 AM
The art looks good but I'm just not digging the coloring it seems dull to me. Still gonna pick it up!!!;)

"Honey, I Blew Up the Avengers"
JimmyPesto - 11/29/2012, 11:43 AM
Thats a weird muzzle flash...

Okay, I'm done
RexMason - 11/29/2012, 11:44 AM
Only 4 pages, and it's already better than the complete Bendis's run.
capMO - 11/29/2012, 11:48 AM
dont even care 'bout a preview, Hickman is top writer in everything I've read by him, this is gonna be brilliant as well
luckylu - 11/29/2012, 11:51 AM
i get the feeling that this is just ultimate marvel 2
Stumblin - 11/29/2012, 11:56 AM
That cover on the top third right, I can't stand that artist. Why does everyone have pouty lips?!
jimpinto24 - 11/29/2012, 11:57 AM
Sick artwork!
siggisuperman - 11/29/2012, 12:02 PM
It says Jonathan Hickman on the cover... so I am reading it. Loving Caps new costume. Who the fudge is this Nihilo guy ?
marvel72 - 11/29/2012, 12:02 PM
at the moment all new x-men is my favorite team book but this is definitely a contender for the title.
DioFoRio - 11/29/2012, 12:16 PM
greg land sucks
ATrueHero1987 - 11/29/2012, 12:17 PM
Another must have title
ATrueHero1987 - 11/29/2012, 12:19 PM
Has anyone read FF yet? It got a 9 out of 10 on IGN.
neopunch - 11/29/2012, 12:25 PM
Why is the Hulk acting like King Kong in that second cover?

jimoakley666 - 11/29/2012, 12:31 PM
Now that is a very interesting opening.
CaptainObvious - 11/29/2012, 12:36 PM
This is one title I will be picking up once it comes out.
AlcoholicA - 11/29/2012, 12:40 PM
@Marvel87.

It was meh, if you're talking about "FF" and not Fantastic Four.


Someone clarify: The original Hyperion is from a different universe right? I've read the MAX series and everything related to it which is yet another universe, but the original, different universe?
marvel72 - 11/29/2012, 12:47 PM
@ Marvel87

ff 1 is alright/good.its well written but i have mixed feelings about the artwork,its a required taste.

its gonna get worse i think down the line when we see ms.thing in all her get up.

best marvel now team titles.

1st all new x-men 1 & 2 (4/5 very good)
2nd uncanny avengers 1 & 2 (4/5 very good)
3rd fantastic four 1 (4/5 very good)
4th ff 1 (3/5 alright/good)
KrazyForKomix - 11/29/2012, 12:48 PM
I'm just happy that Cap has FINALLY gotten the amor he has so desperately needed over the years. Now he doesn't need that antiquated shield-thing he carries needlessly around with him - what's THAT all about anyway. Can't Tony just come up with a protective force field for him. That would be MUCH more realistic!
Love the special-needs chin strap, by the way.

On the flip-side: Hickman will take this book to places its never been before. The guy is on a serious roll. FF/Fantastic Four has been amazing.
I will miss his writing on it, EVEN if Fraction's is good (as I'm sure it will be). Hickman set the bar for FF the highest it's been since Stan stopped writing it.
Temple - 11/29/2012, 1:04 PM
@marvel87 Ive read FF, some parts were funny, overall it has potential, as you can tell by IGNS score, and we all know IGN scores hard.

@Alcoholic Yeah, the original hyperion is from earth 712.
niknik - 11/29/2012, 1:06 PM
......aaaaaaand Cap and Hulk still look rediculous in their "armor" uniforms.
Bandido - 11/29/2012, 1:07 PM
@Marvel72: haha i was bout to give u crap for not listiing Indestructible Hulk but i didnt notice u said best team books!

I agree with All new Xmen, i also really like uncanny but the art gets on my nerves sometimes

What do u think of the second issues for both?
Temple - 11/29/2012, 1:08 PM
Getting this title ASAP, when it drops.
ATrueHero1987 - 11/29/2012, 1:16 PM
@Temple Yes, they do score HARD! They gave Iron Man #1 a really bad review( I thought it was aight).

So far the only team books I've read were Uncanny Avengers & F4(both are really good so far).

SN: I'm going to need for Hickman or Fraction to do a Black Panther book with Oliver Coipel doing the art....oh yea!!
JDUKE25 - 11/29/2012, 1:33 PM
I'm liking Caps look.
GoILL - 11/29/2012, 1:35 PM
Finally pick up my books yeaterday so far I really enjoyed All New X-men, Thor, Indestructible Hulk and Captain America. Iron Man was ok, I look forward to reading Avengers.
GUNSMITH - 11/29/2012, 1:40 PM
HELMET=AWESOME ON CAP...THE REST, TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLE.


AlcoholicA - 11/29/2012, 1:42 PM
@Temple

TheBatman3000 - 11/29/2012, 1:49 PM

marvel72 - 11/29/2012, 1:51 PM

Bandido - 11/29/2012, 3:30 PM
@MrFreeze89: um well not really? Waid has said the armor is not for hulk but for banner other than that i guess we have to wait
Bandido - 11/29/2012, 3:32 PM
@Marvel72: why is Cap so far down ur list? :0
marvel72 - 11/29/2012, 3:49 PM
@ bandido

its good but the artwork mate,john romita jr was good in the 80s when he drew uncanny x-men & daredevil i really not a fan of his modern stuff.

i'd still score it 3.5/5 mainly for the writing.
pointman - 11/29/2012, 3:54 PM
Ok, everyone on here pretty much resembles their onscreen counterpart except..................screw you fox.....
Bandido - 11/29/2012, 4:01 PM
@Marvel72: ahh yeah that makes sense, is that list just for marvel now titles? Im surprised u dont have hawkeye or daredevil cuz i hear really good stuff about both
marvel72 - 11/29/2012, 5:12 PM
@ bandido

i read loads uncanny x-force,daredevil & venom are my three favorite titles,haven't read hawkeye,gambit or captain marvel yet.i borrow comics of a mate of mine & buy the trades later on.

all new x-men trade paperback comes out april 2013 i can't wait that long to read it. :D
ATrueHero1987 - 11/29/2012, 5:37 PM
@marvel72 you haven't read Captain Marvel yet?! Yo, I only got 3 of the first issues released, and let me tell you-it is GOOD. You should definitely check it out quick.
marvel72 - 11/29/2012, 6:10 PM
@ marvel87

i see what my mate has got,that reminds me you should checkout journey into mystery 646(sif) another very good marvel now title.
