Promotional items always add a little something extra to the experience when you head over to the comic book store on Wednesdays. They're just fun, whether it's as simple as a bookmark or something on the level of those Green Lantern rings that DC gave out a few years ago. Or, you know, the Watcher's eyeball, ripped out of his head and missing since his bloody murder. That's pretty fun, too.

Notably, the team is comprised mostly of heroes who are people of color and/or women.
Mighty Avengers has been championed by Executive Editor Tom Brevoort, who in the past has gone on record as describing the idea of an Avengers team comprised of all or mostly black characters as being "contrived," but now says, "people who are interested in these characters and want to see heroes that reflect them have a genuine point."
Uncanny Avengers #5 was mostly a strong issue, the best of the series so far, in part because it gave readers the clearest sense of the team's dynamic and purpose, and in part because the guest art from Olivier Coipel was exceptional. Yet there was one part o
