Two new covers for the upcoming relaunches of Avengers and New Avengers, revealing a few more potential team-members.

First, for New Avengers:

Four of the five were previously announced, but this clears up any lingering speculation that Ms. Marvel is going to be Siege cannon fodder.  I never thought that was likely, but nice to see it put to rest.

Over in Avengers:

Are Peter and Logan pulling double-duty, or are they just guesting?  I'm guessing the generic blond guy in the back there is Steve.

Hi Simon...oh dear.

Man, in that second one, I love how even the armour has the same expression. HEY EVERYONE CAN YOU MAKE YOUR MOUTH RECTAGULAR? SPIDEY, YOU'RE NOT A TEAM PLAYER. IRON MAN, YOU'RE CHEATING.

Also, I sort of want Steve to be heroing in a t-shirt and jeans. Eh, why bother with a costume.

And everyone's fingers are rolled flat. I see you, John Romita Jr. And I don't know what position Wonder Man's legs are meant to be in but I guess it might explain all the looks of shock.

I like the first one. Wolverine's jaw is a little alarming, but overall, I like it. That's an absolute tank of a team.

It's not as bad as this cover. Ugh. I do not like this artist's work. Not a bit.

Ah, good old Humberto Ramos.
I like him on his own creator owned projects. His art is very interesting, and he has a good eye for storytelling. But I really don't like his art on established Marvel characters.

His characters always have that wind-tunnel mouth thing going. Ack.

Yes, exactly. Weird anatomy, crazy expressions, stuff like that. His art is way too distracting to work on mainstream superhero comics--it should be more functional and to the point.

Dear God, it's like Liefeld took cartooning classes. That, or Cap's wearing a sumo suit under his armour.
