    Same picture from yesterday....

    *edit*

    Now it's there.

    New character looks like a douche bag.

    Reposted here from the end of the last AA thread.

    Here's today's new character. The Striker! Meh. About as dull as The Veil.

    They should have hyped/teased up this book off with the teachers or something.

    Cause trying to hype/sell a new book with unknown characters. Especially unknown characters with these boring and uninteresting designs... yeah.
    Not really screaming a must read. Granted, if they would have tried to hype the originall A:TI on it's new students, it would have been meh also.

    A daily reveal of each teacher would have been better. Wasp, Jocasta, Tigra, etc.

    What a colorful lineup so far. Black is the new black.

    Is this actually a new character, or is it that kid introduced in the Maverick ongoing who joined the New Warriors or whatever?

    I think it's a mistake to put new characters out there in this way. Especially when Marvel has a HUGE roster of unused characters they could be using instead.

    Well I'm officially more interested in this book than any other one in the Avengers lineup. This is new and has potential to be exciting. I expect this thread to be as stupid (if not more so) than yesterday's.

    Hopefully not pointers from Scott and Emma.

    Considering how many students they've seen murdered from sheer incompetence.

    OMG! A comics with character who have not been created 45 years ago and who don't already appear in 1, 2 or 6 other titles! How dare you, Gage?

    I'm pleased that the teasers go with new characters instead of revealing the so called true Avengers from the cast (probably Tigra and Justice), who are already known anyway.
