I'm really hoping Cap's new getup' in CA:TWS favors the images depicted here. Perhaps the full on "scales" would look a bit silly, but some kind of texture to favor the original would be ALL WIN!

Looks Good!!

DivinePeaceTime - 11/2/2012, 8:13 AM
Is that the Oscorp Tower from TASM in the final panel of the last pic? xD

CB deserved to be an AVENGER A LONG TIME AGO! so happy he's FINALLY recognized shit i like BARTON but he could never go toe to toe against GLADIATOR himself. GUTHRIE totally can and did!

Well,well,well...I spy the smoking remains of Arno Stark,a.k.a. Iron Man 2020 in one of those pics....

And is that AIM putting Hyperion through tests?

Interesting....

Who's the guy on the left behind Cpt Marvel & Cannonball, is it Slingshot from Secret Warriors?
HavocPrime - 11/2/2012, 8:56 AM
I love that cover, and the art is sexy as hell, hope the story matches.
BruceLeroy - 11/2/2012, 9:30 AM
@leethario

It's Eden Fesi from Secret Warriors. He's going by the name of Manifold now.
superotherside - 11/2/2012, 10:32 AM
Woah. That's all I have to say.
pintoman - 11/2/2012, 11:18 AM
I may be in the minority but not a fan of this art.
StephenStrange - 11/2/2012, 12:08 PM
The chin strap sucks. But Ms. Marvel rules.
Dunejedi - 11/2/2012, 12:25 PM
Opena is a madman. Can't wait for the return of Cap's uniform. They need to give Wolvie the same treatment they gave the Hulk and send him to a planet in another galaxy.
luckylu - 11/2/2012, 12:57 PM
art is great but i hate that effin chin strap cap has. just let him keep his cowl.
Temple - 11/2/2012, 1:05 PM
Love jonathan hickmans work. He digs deep in the marvel universe and uses the best of the best characters, with epic stories. Opena makes this even better. Also, hyperion, the eternals, Eden Fesi, oracle, and the shiar empire!
superpooper - 11/2/2012, 1:11 PM
Wolverine doesn't belong in the Avengers.
IncredibleKulk - 11/2/2012, 1:28 PM
The art looks great, But I have to say my favorite artist right now by far is Charlie Adlard..

aquaman52 - 11/2/2012, 3:23 PM
I can't wait to pick this up. :)
Hellsboy - 11/2/2012, 3:34 PM
sorry cant get over hulks armored crotch
OtakuPapi - 11/2/2012, 4:04 PM
Caps Ultimate design looks so much better than all of his most current costumes especially the uncanny one.Love the art,this looks to be epic
manofmidgard - 11/2/2012, 4:08 PM
cap needs to lose the chin strap and the knee pads. don't even want to know why he would need knee pads... and as hellsboy just pointed out, now hulk has an armored crotch... also don't like that thor is skinnier than hawkeye... but otherwise the art is awesome!
RexDartEskimoSpy - 11/2/2012, 4:28 PM
Beautiful interior art, fugly cover. Weird. Did Falcon borrow the Iron Spider costume? I'm guessing there's another cover that fits together.
EarOne - 11/3/2012, 5:06 AM
WOW..! who's this opena dude..?? M likin his artwork. marvel wins all da time.
XavierLehnsherr - 11/3/2012, 12:10 PM
