Awesome cover! Too bad interiors aren't by Silvestri

Are they all chasing after Cap's shield?
DarkWebs - 2/9/2012, 11:47 AM
Must have!!
headlopper - 2/9/2012, 11:50 AM
Silvestri better get his a** back to 'The Incredible Hulk'or I'm dropping this book.

Got that Marvel.

BTW, great poster...

I wish Silvestri was doing this art instead of Bagley
Dedpool - 2/9/2012, 11:51 AM
That is a sick cover and would make a great poster.

suh-weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet!

Silvestri needs to helm NOVA when they bring him back this year.
TheGreenRanger - 2/9/2012, 12:00 PM
The art in this is all wrong. Cap and Thor have helmets on. We all know according to the movie, that they actually dont wear such things.
HellsHammer - 2/9/2012, 12:04 PM
didnt he do some DC work too?
Amazing artist
thunderforce - 2/9/2012, 12:04 PM
Why don't they just drop Thor's helm all together so it will be the same as the movie ?
superotherside - 2/9/2012, 12:04 PM
Now there is a good cover. I like it. The art is good, not perfect but good.
thunderforce - 2/9/2012, 12:05 PM
Thing would fall off every battle anyways .
TheGreenRanger - 2/9/2012, 12:09 PM
When is Man-Thing going to join The Avengers?
headlopper - 2/9/2012, 12:11 PM
@Nomis - True.

@vtopa- Marvel's bringing Richie back? Seriously?!
JackBauer - 2/9/2012, 12:16 PM
Both Sivestri and Bagley are great artists.

Silvestri's best - Uncanny X-Men

Bagley's best - Thunderbolts

Silvestri sure did give the Widow a great rack ;)

that looks alot like michael turner.. i like it
headlopper - 2/9/2012, 12:27 PM
@Nomis - Thank you Jesus! SOMEBODY finally acknowledges this cross-over one shot masterpiece!!! Even if that wasn't your intention...I'll take it!

I've NEVER seen Batman/Bruce Wayne represented better..in anything!
My most prized comic in my collection.

JackBauer - 2/9/2012, 12:48 PM
Sorry about the link guys, but I'm all boobs when it comes to posting stuff:

JackBauer - 2/9/2012, 12:51 PM
@HelaGood - The story's lame? I agree about that and what you said about work for hire but I know some people on here like that kind of thing.
TheGreenRanger - 2/9/2012, 12:52 PM

@Redbackspider - No problem. I didn't recognize her but I hear she's got a Hardee's commercial :)
HelaGood - 2/9/2012, 1:03 PM
@JackBauer sorry about that... i meant the fact he was boycotting the movie was lame. i too appreciate stories like that. thanks for pointing it out.
TheGreenRanger - 2/9/2012, 1:33 PM
^^^^^ HAHAHAHAHAHAHA fantastic. Is Batman wearing a Bronze Ring we cant see?
jimoakley666 - 2/9/2012, 1:36 PM
I'm not keen on Silvestri's scratch arse artwork. It's not a patch on his stuff back in the early 90's when he was the regular on Wolverine. That was some gorgeous work. The story with Wolverine in the Spanish civil war with Puck and Ernest Hemingway. And the one with Albert and Elsie Dee. Brilliant.
mgeoff88 - 2/9/2012, 2:04 PM
Cool cover. I like how the Avengers movie is having an impact on the Avengers line-up in the comics.

I think that's very cool and smart marketing.

@JackBauer Wow... now that is a woman. I wish she was at the VS Fashion Show this year. Dude, no apologies necessary. :)

@teabag and @GreenRanger

MikeHawk - 2/9/2012, 3:28 PM

SotNatt - 2/9/2012, 7:05 PM
Soooooo many people taking the piss in the comments.

Great cover art. Can't wait to see how the issue ties in to the films.
