Jamie McKelvie posted some preview pages of Young Avengers #1 showing Kate and Noh-Varr (I shall dub them "Kano." And yes, I know that is the name of a villain in Mortal Kombat. That you could make that a portmanteau couple name is amusing to me.)

In AVENGERS #27, the Protector (Noh-Varr) takes a piece of the Phoenix Force to Hala. Which he got by betraying the group of Avengers that went to "confront" the Phoenix Force.

Comixology's Marvel Half off Monday sale this week includes Illuminati. Yes, the entire Bendis/Cheung series is available for the princely sum of $4.95 (or £3something).

I know that I've already posted 4 pages from this issue already, and it's 4 very funny pages. It's the time that Bendis's Bendisisms actually worked and is some of the funnest and funniest Marvel stuff that I've read.

However, there's still a fair bit of gravitas and serious stuff in the series. To be honest, I can't think of any of Bendis' Avengers stuff that's come close to this quality in recent years, except for the Sentry/Norman Osborn chat that ended with them going to Five Guys Burgers

Each issue of the series tied in to an event or character in Marvel history.
#1 was the Illuminati sorting out the Skrulls, thus guaranteeing a Secret Invasion
#2 was the Illuminati collecting the Infinity Gems (how did that recent Avengers storyline finish?
#3 was the Illuminati versus the Beyonder
#4 was the Illuminati doing their Sex and the City chat and then trying to put Marvel Boy on the straight and narrow by smashing his head into a stone wall
and #5 was the reveal that one of the Illuminati was a Skrull.

This comes from #4, where Reed Richards is giving Marvel Boy a pep-talk. )

And Mods, are we having another 30 days theme this winter?

Geez!

I particularly like how Marvel Boy's reaction and the 'narrator' of the caption boxes all fit so well into the lack of context.

So last time we left the two groups of young people about to do battle with Marvel Boy and Xavin with a snapped neck which was stupid. I’m surprised it wasn’t pointed out last time but they expected us to feel any kind of surprise or tension when Marvel Boy snapped Xavin’s neck. He’s a Skrull, you know a shape shifter. A Snapped neck is like an inconvenience to them and they expect us to buy this was legitimate danger, and that Marvel Boy a war hardened Kree who has spent his life before coming to our universe fighting Skrull would be dumb enough to do that to one and stop thinking of it as a threat. My brain hurts.

More disjointed ranting below. )

Edit: I reuploaded the pictures to my rarey used imageshack account. If this doesn't work I'll delete this page and wait a month for my photobucket bandwidth to come back.

Well last time I promised we’d get a look at the Young Avengers/Runaways Civil War mini and so shall I deliver but first let us see how the Runaways had an effect on Tony’s formation of the act itself.

He’s just mad that Molly kicked his, Cap’s and Wolverine’s asses all at once before )
