LOVE Kubert's artwork. And I love the way he draws Wolverine. His run on Wolverine's book in the mid 90's was one of the best in my eyes. Him and Silvestri did some fantastic work on that book. I loved the work he did on Hulk around the same time too. Never read that book but seem to remember it taking place in the Savage Land.

Looks great, but if they were on Mars wouldn't they need space suits? Not just those things in their mouth? Oh well...

I'm digging Hickman's Avengers. I'm not a fan of the "all roads lead to earth" policy Marvel has for all of its cosmic characters these days, but as long as the stories are good I won't complain. And Hickman knows his business.

I'm confused shouldn't her name be Smashim?
SpideyQuad - 1/13/2013, 6:48 AM

Finally a new character. and a female to boot. Really hoping they give her a good development and make her interesting. Both Marvel and DC need a few more stand outish female characters.

Thank god they finally fixed Cap's uniform. Got rid of the pirate boots and floppy gloves.

Good to see some new characters introduced too.

More like a super SOLDIER now.

Amazingjr87 -

Why would you wear an entire space suit if a tiny re-breather would do the job?

Watch as the Avengers travel across the galaxy to fight off an invading force


ITS NOT MARS. THIS IS AFTER MARS.

From what I understand the character is a ripoff from the legionnaires "ultra-lad"with the exception I should say some of the powers are downloaded through the lenses.

Without the lenses the character has super strength which is also augmented with the lenses.

Sounds a little bit like the Super Skrull, in that the powers are artificially transmitted to the recipient.

I hope the character is successful but that has to be the worst name for a character since The Protector.
LordHuck - 1/13/2013, 12:40 PM
How is Smasher or Protector any worse than Punisher?
ATrueHero1987 - 1/13/2013, 3:35 PM
Chill, there's nothing wrong the name The Punisher
