All New, All Different Marvel: Your Guide to the Avengers Solo Books

anad-avengersolo

We've covered the X-Men, and the Avengers teams. Now we're into potentially the biggest group, the Avengers solo titles, which includes some heroes getting their own ongoing books for the first time. In fact, this group is so sprawling, we've held a couple of characters who are technically Avengers for a later post. Everyone is an Avenger now. Jonathan Hickman made it unwieldy. So here are just eight of the infinite solo Avengers titles.

avengers-feat

Who is the greatest Avenger of all time? You probably have your personal favorites. You probably also have a pretty good idea who the popular favorites might be. We wanted to know for sure, so to mark the release of Avengers: Age of Ultron we conducted a giant-size poll to give you the chance to choose between more than 100 Avengers members, and rank them from least to best. Now the results are in. And we think there are a few surprises.

Greatest Best Favorite Avenger Ever: Group I

avengers-group-i

With Avengers: Age of Ultron just around the corner, interest in these heroes has never been greater, so we’ve decided to pit all the official comic book Avengers against each other in a battle for your affections. Who is the greatest, best, favorite Avenger of all time? Only you can decide.

We’ve created voting groups that mix up different eras of Avengers membership. Group I features the third and final of our Captains America, Sam Wilson, and the last of the true 'first generation' Avengers, Scarlet Witch, but with two or three Avengers going through from each round, you may want to vote tactically for one of the other contenders, like Venom, Blue Marvel, or Other Ant-Man.

Putting The Sidekick In The Suit: Black Captain America, Female Thor, And The Illusion Of Progress

cap-handover

I'm not excited for Sam Wilson as Captain America, and I'm not excited for a female Thor.

Now, I don't think these are totally wrongheaded things to do. I admire the impulse behind these changes, and I believe they come from a good place. In the abstract sense, I love the idea of Marvel featuring, in big, bold style, the adventures of a black man and a woman against the hordes of iniquity. I believe at least part of the motivation behind these changes is genuine in its altruism, and that it is not entirely invalidated by profit-seeking impulses. I want to believe in this initiative. I want to be excited. I do not want to be the curmudgeon in the corner, needlessly nitpicking everyone else's good time to pieces.

But it feels like a gimmick, and functions like a gimmick, and that’s because it is a gimmick. I give it perhaps two years — two years that only the most hard-core aficionados will end up able to recall, alongside their recollections of the foil covers era and that one time Doc Ock was Spider-Man.

Stuart Immonen’s ‘All-New Captain America’ Pages Look Amazing As Expected [Preview]

All-New Captain America #1

I think we can all agree that Nextwave was the pinnacle of superhero comic books as an art form. Of course, while I'm not sure the world could have handled more than 12 issues of beautiful perfection, I will say that if Marvel isn't going to have more comics about Elsa Bloodstone beating broccoli monsters to death with a shovel and declaring herself to be President Frankenstein, the least they can do is give us more comics featuring the incredible art of Nextwave's Stuart Immonen.

Al Ewing Talks Sam Wilson And “Season 2″ With ‘Captain America & The Mighty Avengers’

mightyavengers-hed

Mighty Avengers is getting a new #1 and a new title this November. At the Avengers NOW panel at San Diego Comic-Con on Friday, Marvel announced that the series will relaunch as Captain America & The Mighty Avengers -- with former Falcon Sam Wilson taking point as the new Captain America. That means a second title series for Wilson's Cap, and a second chance for readers to discover the book.

Al Ewing continues as writer, with former Captain America artist Luke Ross taking over as regular series artist. ComicsAlliance spoke to Ewing to find out why the book is relaunching, how he plans to handle Sam's promotion, and what it means to write the only Avengers book with a predominantly non-white team.

New Captain America’s First Adventure Will Drop As Digital Comic, ‘Captain America: Fear Him’

infinitecomicscap

Sam Wilson makes his first appearance as the new Captain America at the end of Rick Remender's current run on the book, Captain America #25, in October. Sam gets his own book in All-New Captain America #1 in November, by Remender and Stuart Immonen. But another story will bridge the gap between those two titles, and it will be released as a digital mini series.

Avengers NOW: A Black Captain America, A Female Thor, A Superior Iron Man, And What It Means For Marvel And Diversity

Untitled-1

On Tuesday morning Whoopi Goldberg and the hosts of The View announced that Marvel will relaunch Thor this October with a 'worthy' woman brandishing the hammer. Marvel followed that announcement with two more high profile switcheroos on Wednesday night as Entertainment Weekly revealed a new-ish and possibly superior Iron Man, and Marvel Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada joined comedian Stephen Colbert on The Colbert Report to announce that a new guy will take up Captain America's shield.

That in itself isn't much of a surprise -- original Cap Steve Rogers has passed on his mantle a few times, before eventually yanking it back. After spending some time in Dimension Z and fighting the Iron Nail and whatnot, he's now too old to Avenge from the front lines. The big reveal is that the new Captain America will be Sam Wilson, the African-American superhero currently known as Falcon.
