"This is the dawn of...Avenger Five! Wait, aren't we missing a number? Where's Avenger Two? What is Avenger Two? Why does nobody talk about it? Could it herald an even bigger battle than Standoff?" -- Al Ewing

"He's also used to a certain degree of soap-opera in his superheroics, so he's able to stay cool under emotional pressure, too. If you think about it, the X-Men have had it far, far worse than the Avengers for most of Marvel's timeline - (for more on this, listen to the fab Rachel & Miles X-Plain The X-Men podcast, which I heartily recommend you do) - so Roberto is used to operating under pressures someone like Steve Rogers can't really imagine. And he's learned to do it with flair." -- Al Ewing

"I'm actually really happy with the modular nature of the NEW AVENGERS/AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. crossover. You can buy one half - and get a full, three-dimensional story. Or -- buy BOTH... for FOUR-DIMENSIONAL VISION! And why stop there? Plug the whole thing into STANDOFF! It's ACTION ALL THE WAY DOWN, TRUE BELIEVER!" - Al Ewing

'People have been asking what became of Angela ever since "Shadowland" -- she's got a definite fan following. Whether her fans will be my fans after this story remains to be seen, but she's back from comic book limbo and she'll be playing a big part in the book moving forward.' -- Al Ewing

It was #16.1, from Bendis's second run.

It opened on Norman Osborn in prison.

He wasn't alone in his cell; the Goblin was with him.

The Goblin was in his head. )

"Probably the most visually fun is Iron Mariner -- why is he never in the same room as Jako Krangsen, Stark Enterprises' new Atlantean chief scientist? Then there's Collapsar, size-changing space cop, whose mastery of Pym Particles makes him a credit to the Nova Corps, and Marlene Brashear, aka Marvel Woman, and Ted Altman, aka King Hulk. (So he decided to double down on the 'Hulk' thing. So sue him.)

"Of course, it's not all fun and games -- we'll also be meeting Avengers 20XX's most diabolical enemy--a familiar face who might just end reality as we know it. Hope everyone has their crying towels ready -- this one's a tragedy XX years in the making, true believer!"

'The Avengers of 20XX are fantastic fun to write about, and I owe most of that to Alan Davis, who -- when asked to draw some future Avengers for the last page of the "Ultron Forever" mini -- did things like a half-fish Iron Man and a foot-high Nova. Obviously, I couldn't leave that be.' -- Al Ewing

"By the time we're done, we'll have gone through space and time, hopefully set up all our main concepts, and introduced not just a brand new villain to the Marvel Universe, but maybe even a brand new way of looking at that universe." -- Al Ewing

"My tendency with these books is to pick a niche nobody else is doing; and this time ‘round, that’s the kind of big, expensive, super-shenanigans the regular Avengers just can’t afford right now." -- Al Ewing

'For those who feel this team is too “C-list” – it’s fair to warn you going in that the entire concept of “lists” gives me the hives. There’s something slightly desperate and unhealthy about that whole weird superhero class system – it’s like, when did we all become the bullies at hero high school, hanging around the lockers to give D-Man an atomic wedgie? So… we won’t be doing that. Just like in Mighty Avengers, everyone’s an A-lister in this book. Everyone’s an Avenger.' -- Al Ewing

"As for A.I.M., when Jonathan Hickman put Sunspot in charge of them, it seemed like a brilliant bit of lateral thinking. I always hate it when someone does something brilliant and fun like that and then it gets swept under the rug for the sake of the status quo, so we’re keeping the change. A.I.M. is Avengers Idea Mechanics now. They’re devoted to the advancement of science and achieving massive societal change, but now they’re doing it through peaceful and positive means. Of course, not all the governments of the world are willing to take Roberto’s word for it." - Al Ewing

"My style; I am improving a lot with the interior pages, trying to get to the next level with my art. As always, I do my best, but now with some new crazy inks, I am having tons of fun with this series because all the characters are young, and I want to make the pages look that way, too."

"No more training, no more academies, no more waiting in the wings, 'knowing their place'—they’re full-on Avengers, next-level heroes in a global rescue organization taking on super-threats as big and bad as anything previous teams have ever had to handle." -- Al Ewing

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.

'Iron Man, as the "architect" of the Avengers Machine while the "New Avengers" stuff with the Illuminati was going on, has a lot to answer for. He's made a lot of terrible decisions. I don't think that means he's "bad" though. It's just that he was wrong. Flawed. Broken.' - Jonathan Hickman

"I have a fondness for Ultron. Because he's so changeable - he's a character who comes in iterations, each of which is slightly different to the last, ranging from cold and emotionless to a very human insanity - you can really do what you like with him without it being 'out of character'. There've been good Ultrons, mad Ultrons, sad Ultrons, and last time I wrote him I was essentially doing Daleks and Cybermen. This is actually my first time writing the actual Big Boss Ultron himself, and... hopefully my version fits in with the great tapestry of Ultrons through the years. I've not actually seen what Alan Davis's done with him yet, but I described Ultron in the plot as 'very glam', so we'll see." -- Al Ewing
