CBR: Is the conflict between Sam and Steve almost like "Civil War?" Will they have two different ideological points of view? And will the public and the rest of the Marvel Universe be divided on where they stand?

Nick Spencer: Yeah, the public will be very divided. I'm a huge "Civil War" fan. I'm a great admirer of that story. I think it's still kind of top of the mountain in terms of event stories. This is a very different kind of conflict though.

Making sure that it's very easy for readers to see both sides of this argument was a major priority for me. The one thing I would say to all the Steve fans out there, of which I am one, is that I was not about to put him in a position where I found his viewpoint unsympathetic just because the star of the book is Sam. I think that Steve has a really strong argument here as does Sam.

When I was rereading and skimming through Hickman's Avengers & New Avengers to do the post on Smasher (and eventual posts on Pod & Validator), I took more notice of the art in these two runs. In particular, I took a closer look at Mike Deodato Jr.'s artwork that he provided for many of the issues. When the guy was good, he pretty dang good and drew some very nice pieces.

However, he was off his game, he drew some of the more impressive looking Escher girls and barbie dolls in comics that I've seen in this modern age. As such, let's take a trip down memory lane and highlight some of his more... sillier and questionable depictions of the female characters.

"I spoke earlier about how you need characters to sympathize with in a book like this. When Teen Abomination came along, and was fully realized by Yildiray Cinar's art, our editor, Mark Paniccia, immediately felt sorry for him and asked me to look after him. This is what you want as a writer. You want readers rooting for characters, and Tony needed someone, too." -Tom Taylor

Evidently, Fury taught Hill well on how to screw others over to get a job done.

Honestly, while it has some faults, this is probably the most consistently good Avengers book to come out of Marvel NOW, and its not even really an Avengers title. Its got a sense of humor and features some awesome characters, and Spencer’s really proving himself a decent writer.

So yeah, read it.

Long story short for those not in the know, Secret Avengers was rebooted, and part of that is reinventing the team for New!SHIELD, where they'll be doing secret Missions, just like before, but this time they'll be mind-wiped after every mission, so they won't tell the other Avengers.
