As a longtime Marvelite, I thoroughly enjoyed the issue and those last few Cap-centric pages had me shouting in glee. I love Cap SO much.
    Yeah, the last page with Captain America oozed Chris Evans' kind warmness with the smile, but still the argument is that the Moviengers are so noobish, we need these random new guys. It's a double-edged sword, witha 3.99$ price tag and double-shipping, i honestly don't expect this to be on the top sales that long, or well, that big to gain a whole new audience as wide and longerm as something like DC's top titles since their relaunch.
    And I disagree with the Uncanny Avengers critique. He's really building something special with the whole mutant public relations thing. The first half of issue #2 was particularly enthralling. I think, maybe, Marvel calling it the flagship book was a bit of a mistake. As it's own entity, though, it's amazingly well written.
    As it's own entity, it still suffers the same problems. Cyclops is marked as the world's biggest terrorist, while his brother himself has been a ruler too, Logan has done so many awful things and him missing Xavier so hard and bashing Cyclops is laughable. Thor joining the Mutant cause is forced a shell, having #2 open with only Avengers caring about Avalance's destruction is a bad move, where we're the X-Men? Like seriously.
    The solo books have been great though. I traditionally don't read the Thor solo but I decided to pick this one up and have really engrossed in the story. It's amazing. I would have picked up Cap anyway since he's my favorite character but I like Remender's new take on him a lot. I haven't read Hulk yet but I'm sure I'll get around to it.
    Hulk's only problem is some of the non-emotional faces Leinil draws, but the action is bueno.

Id post a picture but you know how much I love images but if you can find me on facebook I think there are a few of us on there.
    So she's a casual comic book fan, but isn't a geek? I didn't know those existed anymore. How'd you meet?

    Impressive. Most impressive.

    I have never really been in touch with the 616-verse at all, but I just read that Hickman's Avengers was finally released. I was just wondering, why did it take so long? He's left the Ultimates for...9 months now?

    But on a related note, given the extremely poor quality we're getting in Ultimates, I am thinking of dropping Ultimates and start following Avengers. Just cause it's Hickman. (Actually cause of the art too. The art from the preview is beautiful!! It reminds me of the Ultimate issues where Ribic and Dean White were still on the book. I don't think we've been giving Dean White enough credit; his colors are out of the world!)

    Can't believe I'm dropping an Ultimate book for a 616 book. Shame on me.

    PS: Isn't it irritating that 616 Cap now looks more ultimate than Ultimate Cap?!

    He implied he also left due to the editorial demanding an event to happen because of the New 52 DC relaunch eating Marvel, but he also had to finish his Fantastic Four run, he has his creator-owned projects he's interested about and Avengers will ship 24 issues a year, while New Avengers 12.

    Yeah i think plenty of people are going to do that, not to mention theres Nick Spencer's Secret Avengers which seems to cater around the Ultimates/Ultimate Avengers fan category:

    Eh, Ultimate Captain America looks like his original design, but i did like the military helmet Hitch gave him for Ultimates 2. Remember the awful idea of Captain America having ghetto armor for some reason? The ideas Humphries comes up with lol.

    He finished his FF run but left Ultimates to an incompetent rookie?!

    Looks interesting...might have to check it out too.

    That cover by Leinil though just reminded me again of how ugly his art has become.
    I still remember how beautiful his art was back when he did Superman Birthright.

    Yea, I was mainly referring to the military helmet introduced in Ultimates 2. It really sealed the deal for me as an "ultimate" design.

    Regarding the ghetto costume, according to one of Humphries tweets back then, "the country needs him, he has no time to pick up his laundry" (something alone these lines)
    Where'd he get that beautiful bucket helmet? Beats me. (that was sarcasm by the way)

    No shame whatsoever, sir. Read good comics, and forget the rest. I dropped The Ultimates with #18, so the only UC title I'm pulling now is Spider-Man.

    That doesn't bug me as much as the way the 616 stole our Nick Fury.

    Ouch, February? I think I will hop on board with this series. I have given up my Anti-616 and have been reading Amazing Spider-Man lately and god knows Ultimates is awful so I need some sort of Avengers to fill the void. Plus, I love Nick Spencer so I'm hoping that his LOST-esq storylines will work well with a covert block-ops team book.

    Just a scheduling conflict with some of the other team members.

    You're gonna put on a grass skirt and post pics/videos of yourself hula dancing, right?
