WHEN TEEN HEROES INFILTRATE THE MASTERS OF EVIL, WHO WILL BREAK BAD? The longer the teens spend undercover, the more they descend into darkness, and as they start to build relationships with these multi-layered criminals, the line between good and evil blurs. What will happen first…joining the Masters for real, or getting exposed and killed? If you thought Murder World was dangerous, just wait until “Most Promising New Talent” Harvey award-winner Dennis Hopeless and acclaimed artist Kev Walker surround you with Evil!

Definitely picking this up
dcnoob122 - 3/7/2014, 8:19 AM
Show them, hazmat
jlabatman - 3/7/2014, 8:20 AM
So Arcade had a Hunger Games in comics? How compelling!
TheRealistStarLord - 3/7/2014, 8:21 AM
Since Cap TWS has received some great buzz, I hope Baron Zemo will be the main villain in threequel, and also bring Modok into the storyline!
KrazyForKomix - 3/7/2014, 8:26 AM
Are any of these guys actually an Avenger? Don't we have enough Avenger-RELATED titles?
Pheezmatic - 3/7/2014, 8:28 AM
@drrockit LMAO i was thinking the same thing.
CorndogBurglar - 3/7/2014, 8:39 AM
@ KrazyForKomix

They are basically the New Young Avengers...if you want to think of them like that. Avengers in Training?

Like the Avenger's version of the New Mutants.
airbeyonder18 - 3/7/2014, 8:39 AM
hey if I was her, after what she's been through, I'd turn into a villain as well.
CorndogBurglar - 3/7/2014, 8:40 AM
@ The RealistStarLord

And yes, I want to see Zemo on screen so bad. He's easily one of my favorite Marvel Villans.
Comedian03 - 3/7/2014, 8:43 AM
@KrazyForKomix

There are more than enough Avenger related titles, but everyone knows if you put "Avengers" in the title of something, it equals one thing, $$$$$$$$$ lol
jimoakley666 - 3/7/2014, 8:45 AM
I... err... I don't know who the majority of these characters are.

Arcade. Check. Obviously.
X23. Check.
Deathlocket - heard of
Hazmat - kinda heard of...

Ends there.

Also, wasn't Arcade hideously scarred all up one side of his face? Why does he now look all shiny and new?
KrazyForKomix - 3/7/2014, 8:46 AM
The next Marvel imprint will be All NEW NOW: Avengers.
Thevenominside - 3/7/2014, 8:58 AM
im open to this one, at least the art looks half way decent.
soberchimera - 3/7/2014, 9:01 AM
I like Shoulder Guy.
KindredMac - 3/7/2014, 9:05 AM
boring....
TelaVizion - 3/7/2014, 9:24 AM
This series should be really good.
Lostcause - 3/7/2014, 9:29 AM
Loved AA! I pick this up for sure. I love Hazmat. Namora is in The New Warriors. #1 and #2 good read.
RetroFit - 3/7/2014, 9:29 AM
What is this crap? I only recognize Zemo. And I HATE this style of art.
Interestein - 3/7/2014, 9:32 AM
Is this a spin off of AVENGRS ARENA or something? Loved what I read of that series.
nibs - 3/7/2014, 9:38 AM
So... this is just Runaways 2?
CorndogBurglar - 3/7/2014, 10:07 AM
@ Interestein

Yes, basically

@ nibs

No, not really
nibs - 3/7/2014, 10:20 AM
Oh so it's not a story about teen heroes that are close to a villain? and one of them is a traitor?
BaronZemo - 3/7/2014, 11:08 AM
BARON ZEMO! FFFFUUUCK YEEAAH!!! :D
novaprime - 3/7/2014, 12:44 PM
The covers look amazing! But the Comicbook art looks trash and kiddy!
Shroombeast - 3/7/2014, 12:51 PM
Hey Marvel, not everything you put out has to have "Avengers" in the title to make a profit, you know? Man, if Thunderbolts came out today instead of the '90s it would have probably had "Avengers" in the title too...
dethpillow - 3/7/2014, 1:16 PM
oh wow, i thought that guy was Fabio.
gold balls poink poink poink.

i hate that guy. glad Cyclops kicked his dumb ass out.

i guess it's not tho. good.

This doesn't seem much like Young Avengers tho, Runaways either...
it's pretty much just a direct continuation of Avengers Arena it seems like.

i never read that at all much, i guess a lot of people liked it tho. Battle Royale kicks Hunger Games ass anyways.
that's the real deal version of that story. so Hunger Games only deserves to get ripped on and ripped off.

dethpillow - 3/7/2014, 1:17 PM
@Shroombeast - yeah, i think they're shooting themselves in the foot with all these Avengers and X-Men titles.
dethpillow - 3/7/2014, 1:32 PM
@KrazyforKomix - no! we can never have enough Avengers comics, are u really crazy???

this fills the gap that Avengers Arena, Avengers AI and Young Avengers have left us.
whew....

i was scared, myself, almost thinking of dusting off the old suicide note, but i guess satisfied to see that won't be necessary this time.

in fact, just in case, i think they should do fund my new Avengers books...

Avengers:ER Ward
Platonic Avengers
Extreme Avengers
AILF:Avengers I'd Like to [frick]
Avengers:Whose Name Starts With A Vowel.

these books are all necessary.


cuz goddamit, we can't risk any shortage of Avengers books.
the world economy, itself, would collapse to it's very knees.
we cannot risk that. cannot harbor that possibility.
Optimus83 - 3/7/2014, 4:27 PM
Wolverine. ...Is That You???
ScionStorm - 3/7/2014, 4:59 PM
This art is actually enjoyable for me. Unlike the She-Hulk comic. Hopeless did say after Avengers Arena the next book they'd be doing was going to be a "Where do they go from there" kind of thing. So it makes sense to start the book out with fallout from Avengers Arena.

And yes, Hazmat attended Avengers Academy so technically-Avengers affiliated. Though I think most of the characters on the cover come from the Braddock Academy in England. Sort of the British version of Avengers Academy run by Captain Britain.

Still loving Avengers, New Avengers, and now Avengers World all written by Hickman. He's got such a scope for where Avengers is headed. The Builder of the Infinity series were nothing. Greater threats are just taking their sweet time getting here as the multiverse continues to collapse in on itself.
marvel72 - 3/7/2014, 6:01 PM
i think i'll just stick with the avengers titles i'm currently reading.

-avengers
-new avengers
-mighty avengers
-uncanny avengers
-thor god of thunder
-hawkeye
-black widow
-indestructible hulk
MightyZeus - 3/7/2014, 10:07 PM
I miss reading The Runaways.

Also i'm wondering if it's plausible to introduce Arcade in the MCU?
Jimmyquickfingers - 3/8/2014, 8:34 AM
Arcade sounds like a pedofile collecting little kids.
