I'm confused as to why Sam Fury wants Taskmaster on his team. He kidnapped him in Battle Scars. And didn't he kill his mother too? (Or at least associated to whoever did)
Nightcrawler, Jean Grey, Gwen Stacy, Peter Parker, Professor X, Mar-Vell, Richard Rider- Bring Them Back!!!
I've been waiting for Nick Spencer to get a book like this. To this point he's only had second tier titles. This book definitely puts him in the big leagues! I love the line-up, drawing inspiration from the Avengers movie while bringing Nick Fury Jr. and Agent Coulson into the mix. It definitely sets a very different tone compared to the regular Avengers books. I think this has the potential to be even better! I hope Spencer is the writer long-term for this book. It sounds like he's got a great plan for it.

Perhaps Winter Soldier tries to help out on missions but refuses to actually join the team since he has mindwipe-related issues.
Mr. Spencer might want to rethink that Q & A thread idea. Looks like it would be at least 20 pages of whining about Nick Fury and telling everyone questioning the mindwipes to "wait and see".
Psyched for Taskmaster. And thankful Bucky isn't actually on the team (I don't care for him at all).
Nick Spencer, Marcus Johnson, Colson, Black Widow, black ops team and mind wiping
The lineup is close to my dream one for Secret Avengers. Just put Ghost, Spitfire, Paladin, and Blade in there instead of Fury, Coulson, Hulk, and Clint and you have the perfect team. :)
Mah Sheet: Moon Knight, Thor, Wolfsbane, Taskmaster, Doc Ock, Black Bolt, Cage, Hawkeye, Sunfire, Boomerang, Hellcat, Shang-Chi, Misty Knight, Bishop, Magik, Cypher
Rereading the interview, it says there will be some sci-fi included too, which will be nice to see since the series has dabbled into that area as well already (although that ghost truck story was a little odd).
I always wonder why with SHIELD's tech in addition to Tony's, the non-powered Avengers haven't ever had any upgrades. The Widow sting and fancy arrows don't really compare to armor. Plus we could see things like this instead of this
Its just cheesy fan art, but I'd love to see some tech advances if it really is at their disposal... They hand out armor to anyone these days ;)
Oh and Hock - whatever did happen to Paladin? I saw Spitfire became a vampire. Random.
Who has the pool on when this new, "shadier" SHIELD will become corrupt?
