From MARVEL ADVENTURES SUPER HEROES: ANT-MAN #24, a reprint of MARVEL ADVENTURES: THE AVENGERS #20.



Irony *and* a 616-continuity reference. Neat!

Now I've tried to be open minded about the DCnU, I really have (to the point of REALLY annoying some people I didn't meant to in the process)

I've given the new Blue Beetle a chance, but it's taking an awfully long, and rather over-violent time to get anywhere as promising as Jaime's original run was.

I've accepted that we'll never see a decent handover from Dick's mentoring of Damian to Bruce taking him on, and that Dick Grayson has had his entire circus past basically turned from "Idyllic childhood" to "Narrowly escaped hell on Earth" and that he was apparently 16 when he first appeared as Robin (which defeats the whole bloody point of the character IMHO) Okay, maybe "accepted" is putting it a bit strongly for that one... but I'm working on it, honest)

I'm resigned to the fact that the unique Oracle has become a generic Batgirl.

I've accepted that the Teen Titans I knew and grew up with now never happened, or didn't happen in anything like the same way it did before. And that Wally West and Garth are unknown quantities now... along with a host of others.

And I'm also aware of how bizarre some of the "We have to make these the iconic versions of the characters" choices have been, when other media with vastly larger viewerships than any comic has had in decades are cheerfully misximg and matching the history to their hearts content, and making it WORK.

But there were some things I thought might be perhaps too low profile to be messed with THAT much,

BTW If you thought Harley's makeover was a bit much, just wait until you see this...

And a couple more pages.....

Three more pages from Teen Titans #8 )

So, if you checked out the CBR preview of this ish linked to awhile back, you know what the dragons are really up to: It's time for their eggs to hatch, and they need to swallow the eggs to carry them up into space so they can be properly born. If the Avengers get in the dragons' way, they fully intend to mow 'em down, so it's up to the Pet Avengers to hold their erstwhile comrades back.

This they do, and admirably, and once the dragons have flown unimpeded into orbit (for a beautiful wordless hatching scene, thank you Ig Guara!) Throg explains the situation. Thor is most understanding, and apologetic for his hotheadedness. He summons the Avengers off to help rebuild the world, and in another lovely power pose, Throg declares "Avengers stand together. We will help." So they board the quinjet, Mockingbird carrying Hairball most adorably, and we see a big green hand grip the rim of the volcano from within as it flies off.

The End...or is it? )

Something tells me we maybe haven't seen the last of that Foom character.

4 pages under the cut; warning! layout-breaky double page spread!

Yes, it's another Avengers Vs. Pet Avengers post, because this issue is just that awesome.

The Recap Page helpfully informs us: Cap, Thor and Iron Man are mystically frogified! The rest of the Avengers duel dragons in China! Lockheed's turned tail and joined Fin Fang Foom!

Verily, Pet Avengers, 'tis time once more to do battle! )

So. What happens now? I got no clue - the Next Issue page just has a standard Avenger/Pet Avenger Power Pose Cover, which tells us not very much. But I'll be there with bells on!

Oh, and I've hit my limit of 4 pages here, but if somebody could post at least the last panel of - ummm, page 20, I think, if I've counted right? - I'd love them forever. It's a Ms. Lion panel and, well, maybe somebody could use up our last page of the 1/3 rule with a post of Awesome Ms. Lion Panels? Because he gets some great ones that aren't germane to the plot. Early Christmas present maybe?

Do I really need to give you a reason to click behind the cut? The team behind the projects continues to deliver on all counts, is all I have to say. And they continue to make scenes that hold the company to their name.

for frogs are tasty and easily chargrilled. :D

When last we left our heroes: a wacky-acting Fin Fang Foom transformed Tony, Bucky and Thor into frogs. Thor used his psychic link to Throg to summon the Pet Avengers; F-cubed swallowed first the Frogvengers, then the Pet Avengers - and made Lockheed an offer he maybe, possibly, can't refuse?
I'm not telling. )
Next issue: The cover shows the Pets doing battle against a de-frogged Thor, IM and Cap. How? Why? Tune in next month, pet lovers!

It's Friday, and it's time for some love before the weekend. I present the Pet Avenger's #3 preview, courtesy of CosmicBookNews. Why do I have to say anything more? One funny page of the preview behind the cut.

Lockheed will take on any comers. )
