    Bendis talked up "Avengers" first. "This is the gathering of the greatest heroes that ever lived and Spider-Woman," the writer said before praising John Romita, Jr.'s work on the book sayi

    So, if not all The New Avengers make it out of the first arc, who's gonna die?

    They're all pretty big names.

    For the love of Christ. Just let the goddamn character die. It was a neat idea, it failed. Leave it.

    What the hell is going on Marvel? This is actually a panel of monumental failure.

    Well if I read Bendis's comment correctly he said somebody in the arc wouldn't walk away and their are three people in the arc who aren't Avengers.

    Damian Hellstrom
    Dr./Brother Vodoo
    Dr. Strange.

    Based on how badly Jericho thinks he screwed up I'm guessing he'll make a heroic sacrifice to save the day by the end of the arc.

    Having never read Rulk's series, I don't much to say about his conclusion.

    But weren't the reviews for that title really bad? Is moving him to a flagship title a smart move?

    Again, I've never read it, so as far as I know it could be great.

    Who Rulk? Because I don't know how that character failed from Marvel's perspective.

    Yes this is great news!! I mean it's not like people need more reason to hate Bendis's Avengers stuff without throwing Rulk into the mix

    Reviews were terrible, sales were good....much like Avengers currently.......sooooooo combine high selling Avengers with high selling Rulk and you potentially have a hugggggggge selling terrible title.

    I don't understand how something can be so universally reviled and still sell so much.

    Yeah, I feel so much better jumping off of Avengers now. My life lacks Rulk, and I'd prefer to keep it that way.

    I'm curious if the new "Man Without Fear" teasers are an actual indication of who will be taking up that title or if all three are red herrings like most of Marvel's other teasers.

    I'm actually looking forward to this. Been waiting to see a Hulk back on The Avengers for a long time.

    Reviews may have been terrible, but was it actually that bad?

    This announcement kind of makes me want to learn more about Rulk...
