Marvel NOW! Teases ‘Amateurs’ From Kieron Gillen And Jamie McKelvie

Clearly, the Marvel NOW! teasers are just getting unfairly abusive with the latest release. After all, Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie have been making comics together (The wonderful Phonogram) and separately (Gillen’s Uncanny X-Men and Journey Into Mystery, McKelvie’s Defenders and Suburban Glamour, amongst others) for years. But despite that, now they’re being described as “Amateurs“? I mean, that’s just cruel.More seriously, the teaming of Gillen and McKelvie on the latest tease is undoubtedly a good thing — The two work very well together — and the use of “Amateurs” as the code word, when combined with a recent blog post at the Phonogram blog, the Marvel NOW! Point One teaser art by McKelvie showing Miss America hitting Loki just adds fuel to the rumor that the team is heading up a Young Avengers reboot that will feature a teenaged Loki, Miss America and Wiccan from the original incarnation of the team (For those paying attention at home, that would bring the number of ongoing series with “Avengers” in the title to six: Young, Dark, Arena, Secret, New and the twice-monthly Avengers).

More will presumably be revealed soon, either via Marvel directly, in the Marvel NOW! Point One one-shot due this month, or at the upcoming New York Comic-Con. Or, of course, Gillen and McKelvie might give the game away themselves even sooner than that…
