"Lots of mysteries, lots of emotional beats. We've kidnapped a few luckless characters to be permanent additions to the cast -- the idea is that the game-players and their "Summoners" have a number of permanent pawns. They can be assisted by the Marvel Universe's best and brightest -- "ringers" who are stolen for a fight or two, mindwiped and sent back none the wiser -- but essentially, they're there to fight until they die.

Imagine that for a second. Fighting an endless gladiatorial combat in a broken section of spacetime, utterly alone. Nobody's rushing to bring you back, nobody's coming to get you. Iron Man says he'll bring in the Avengers -- but then he's sent home in a flash of light and you know he's not even going to remember your name. And then people start dying, and you know it's just a matter of time before it's your turn...

So, yeah, emotional beats won't be a problem. The big mystery is, how the Hell does anyone get out of this?

'Comicbook Resources' had this in their list of 'Scariest Comic Books of All Time". NSFW for nudity and gore. It was written by Grant Morrison.

CBR, io9 and other sites are noting how certain sections of the more... conservative end of the US media are finding the new title featuring Sam Wilson as Captain America problematic.

But it's not the hero, so much as the villains... I guess )

"When I created the Banshees in the first go round, I did something really dumb. I considered having a black woman be part of the team, and then didn't because in the real-life air service pilots in World War II, the two black women that applied were turned down because of racism. And I thought, well then, I can't have black women here either. Even though at the same time I was breaking all sorts of other rules. For some reason I thought it was okay for them to fight giant robots, but having a black woman was too much of a stretch. It's embarrassing, so when we were talking about bringing these characters back, I had a chance to correct that." - Kelly Sue DeConnick
