    It's all there. You won't need to have read anything else.

    1. There was some debate here over who was the 'love' Namor was doing it for in this scene. Some think Emma, some think Sue, and I tend to think Namor meant _both_ of them, because yes, his cojones are that big. Which WOMAN was he referring to?

    Interesting. I'd have reversed that order, based in part on Priest's Panther in Sturm and Drang, Namor's ability to repeatedly ally with Doom and break even, if not come out a little ahead, and being consistently able to move between the hero and villain camps, as we saw with the Cabal, but, of course, I'm biased.

    2. Which reminds me, are the Atlantean Fifth Columns Namor placed in various countries of the surface world, after Iron Man's invasion and the destruction of Atlantis, still in play?

    3. Did Namor move his Atlantean Army out of Latveria before Balder's Asgardians arrived?

    4. Is the oil rich Middle Eastern country of Mazikhandar, that Namor made an Atlantean protectorate in Austen's Once An Invader arc, still under Atlantean control?
    1. I'll leave it up to you guys. It's more fun that way.
    2. I would think so. Yes.
    3. Uhhhh, no idea. Ask Tom.
    4. No idea. Brevoort it on formspring.

    Hi Jonathon.

    If you wanted to, are you allowed to use any of the characters marvel acquired from Malibu comics?

What does your Avengers book have to offer to them? And what would you tell to those readers who are coming back? Those have abandoned their books for some time but are willing to get back to this "world" with your Avengers book.

    Thank you and good luck with this new book which I'm having all my hopes on it.
    What does the book have to offer? I dunno, it's ambitious. The art is pretty.

    I'm terrible at self-promotion.

    Buy it if you want to, don't if you don't.

    I want you to want me.

    Now, starting with the questions:

    1) Your Avengers and New Avengers have some relationship with Uncanny Avengers?

    2) New Avengers will be called the Illuminati?

    3) The members will continue with the possession of the gems of the infinite?

    4) Do you have any plans for the Original Human Torch?

    5) In New Avengers you want to work with the side which each character represents? Example: Atlantis with Namor, Black Bolt with the Inhumans, with Strange Magic, etc.
    1. Not really.
    2. The book is New Avengers starring the Illuminati. They don't call themselves anything.
    3. They have the gems.
    4. No.

    Nope.

    This reads like season 1 Seth from the OC.

    I don't know why that popped into my head.

    Sorry to be greedy but one last question.

    Any plans to work with Nick Dragotta again? I love his art.

Do you know what has caused the boom of practically all NOW! series' #1 to have a Skotty Young baby variant? And how do you feel about his Avengers cover showing the team going for a cookie jar?

    PS. I think his covers are absolutely hilarious.
    People love Skottie. Myself included.

    Nope.

    Hypothetically, if you were on Spider-Man, would you consider bringing Gwen back? I prefer her to Mary Jane as she is his intellectual equal. Unlike many of the Marvel higher-ups I see her death as unnecessary and not essential to the growth of Peter Parker's character. And personally, I think Marvel could make a lot of great stories with her.
    I've honestly never thought about it.

    Also I noticed Redwing seems to be missing in action, is Falcon so awsome now that he no longer needs the extra pair of eyes?
    On both, read and find out.

    Hello Mr. Hickman.

    1. Will Wakanda be fleshed out and play a major role in NA besides being the group's base?

    2. How much more formidable will King Of The Dead Tchalla be compared to pre KOTD Tchalla?

    Thank you for your time.

    I really didn't want to divert this thread anymore, but you brought up the Giffen Legion, so...

    I don't know what "season one seth from the OC" means, I'm going to assume it's a reference to the gnostic sect of Sethians centering around the 3rd son of Adam (OC stands for Original Creator, yes?).

    While I don't see the relevance and/or comparison, the fact remains; the 5 Years Later/Gap Legion was the most ambitious, savvy, challenging and conceptually dense Legion we've ever had. It is a flawed masterpiece thanks to all kinds of outside interference and behind the scenes tomfoolery (generally dictated by how much involvement Giffen had in any given issue), but it was one of the few post-Watchmen books that sought to apply the rigorous structural and intellectual principles upon which Watchmen was truly built.

    And the art, by god the art. This was technically from the run that just preceded it, but the general style remained unchanged, and it's brilliant: http://heshouldreallyknowbetter.blog...te-things.html

    AHHH.

    Cool. Whether it's the mainstream Marvel U or a parallel one, Franklin always seems to always end up with a spunky redhead.
