I feel that that the avengers cover is racist. They are wearing Japanese clothing Captain Marvel: samurai, Spider-Woman :Sailor Moon and rest are ninjas. They are in Hong Kong (Part of China). All asians aren't the same like all caucasian aren't the same.

Sailor Mars / Spider woman ?

@MARVELPSYCHO79 I love New Avengers so far! I put this series after All New X-Men as the best Marvel Now title. #3 should've came in the mail today but I got All New X-Men #7 & Iron Man #6.

So guess Superior Spider-man does not get fired in April then?

Remember the fired teaser for April...well...well if this is for may...guess this debunks the fired theory...

Young Avengers is pretty awesome.
Introspection - 2/11/2013, 1:03 PM
@speedstermike Those aren't Japanese in style they are Chinese. Yes the armor looks similar too samurai but the med-evil armors were very similar.
jimoakley666 - 2/11/2013, 1:14 PM
Some ace covers there. But what the hell is Cannonball wearing? Ha ha ha. Love that dinosaur cover.
speedstermike - 2/11/2013, 1:45 PM
@Introspection those are high shoulder pads, Samurai padding on the shoulders are up http://www.google.com/url?sa=i&source=images&cd=&docid=ioimIMksk2d34M&tbnid=4cuqRonRVnWVKM:&ved=0CAgQjRwwAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fen.wikipedia.org%2Fwiki%2FSamurai&ei=x2UZUdr_NoHwiwKR-ICADQ&psig=AFQjCNFnn9Dw9D5Nxvzpz1IWWmlAwkszRQ&ust=1360705351957353

There's nothing racist going on there. It's just an homage to certain popular forms of entertainment.

speedstermike - 2/14/2013, 3:25 PM
Just read it please, I just want people to know because I am Chinese and I find it offensive.
