Solicits for several Marvel books: Exiles, Invincible Iron Man and X-Force. Edit: Now with added Secret Warriors/Dark Avengers. 

From Newsarama:



EXILES #6
Written by JEFF PARKER
Pencils & Cover by SALVADOR ESPIN
The Exiles are back to finish what they started in their first mission, and its Panther knows how to bring down the mutant alliance! (Hint: involves mutants getting nekkid)
Also, Morph returns to prep the team for a new mission to a world where "science" never caught on so much.

I was expecting they would go back to the Magneto/Genosha world eventually, but I was surprised it was this quickly.  Also, looks like a magic world with Dormammu is next on the agenda.



INVINCIBLE IRON MAN #17
Written by MATT FRACTION
Art & Cover by SALVADOR LARROCA
What happens when the world's smartest man starts making sloppy mistakes? With the finish line in sight, Tony blows it for everybody and now his whole insane scheme to destroy his own mind, evade Norman Osborn, and save the lives of all his friends who have tried so desperately to help him goes wildly off the rails. Nothing gold can stay, Pony-Boy.

INVINCIBLE IRON MAN #18
Written by MATT FRACTION
Art & Cover by SALVADOR LARROCA
Tony hides out where it all began as Madame Masque's moment of triumph rings out across all the corners of Norman Osborn's empire. Black Widow and Maria Hill are trapped in the belly of the beast. Pepper's suit is in the possession of H.A.M.M.E.R. And when Stark's one last sloppy mistake gives up his location, it's Osborn himself that suits up and gets in the game. It all ends next issue, kids.


This arc has been a bit slow for me, but I like the look of the final issues, particularly with Norman at last going into the field.  My guess is that it comes down to Iron Man and New Cap vs. Iron Patriot.



X-FORCE #19
Written by CRAIG KYLE & CHRISTOPHER YOST
Art & Cover by MIKE CHOI & SONIA OBACK
"NOT FORGOTTEN"
X-23's past catches up to her in the worst way possible, at the worst time possible...and X-Force can't find her. X-23's only hope is the one woman who's been working to take her down since issue TWO...Agent Morales. But can either of them survive against the one foe X-23 has never beaten? PLUS! The Leper Queen's secrets are revealed! And another member of Selene's 'Inner Circle' is revealed as her unspeakable plan gets one step closer to reality. Part 3 (of 4)

I love this book when Choi & Oback are drawing it; their art is just the best.  I'm assuming the solicitation refers to Kimura, last seen off on an Emma-motivated assassination quest.


DARK AVENGERS #9
Written by BRIAN MICHAEL BENDIS
Pencils & Cover by MIKE DEODATO
Poor Marvel Boy... he had no idea how sinister a gang the Dark Avengers actually is. And now he is running for his life. And poor Ares, he has no idea where his son goes while he is off being an Avenger. And now he is going to find out. And when he does... there will be hell to play.

Guest-starring Nick Fury and the Secret Warriors. Oh, you heard that right. Ares versus Nick Fury! You know when Stan used to say 'nuff said? This is the kind of thing he was 'nuff saiding about!


Parents are always annoyed when they find out about extracurricular activities their kids are participating in.

And is that a gratuitous male butt-shot from Deodato?

It's a trap for Norman, innit?

I was just thinking that. And by thinking it, I mean "Oh Christ, if this isn't some awesome long game Tony's been playing to kick Osborn's feet out from under him at the best possible moment I will be SO MAD." Seriously, it would be the only thing that could redeem this shitty plotline.

Yeah, sorry, Fraction. Interest has already been lost thanks to decompression from hell.

Gods, that Archangel is just gorgeous. Ares vs. Nick Fury? As much as I adore Fury this fight seems too skewed to be that fun.

I suspect Fury will have the writer on his side. Which will probably annoy me, since I've become allergic to the "always wins, because PREP TIME" type of character over the last few years.

What I noticed most about it is he has BOTH sets of wings. If the story can live up to the cover it will be worth the price increase.

Is Fraction's Iron Man ending, or is he just leaving the book to be replaced with a new writer?

I get that kind of vibe from the info.

Is it becoming a Dark Iron Man book starring Osborn?

Because there is a good and just god?

The X-Force cover is very striking. Though X-23 appears to have two right eyes.

Also, when the heck did Tony become "the world's smartest man"? I know Marvel has been pumping him up from "one of the MU's best engineers" to "top ten smart", but I'm pretty sure Reed and Doom would take turns kicking him around for that."

And the Thinker.

Just...let's not tell Pym, he'd whip out his cock and grab a ruler to show how smart he was.

If nothing else, the covers of X-Force have been wonderful.

The team's too evil for *Noh-Varr*? Bendis, did you even READ the Marvel Boy mini?

Alright Exiles. 6 issues and no Exile died.

Pony-Boy. Pony-Boy.

Get yourself to the library and read The Outsiders by S. E. Hinton.

Yes because getting a mental image of tony stark doing pony play means I'm a unread idiot.

That comment sounded bitchy. It wasn't meant to be. That's what the last line of the solicit is referencing, and it's a genuine recommendation. The book's a classic.
