    Exactly PupsOfWar's point. They don't explore the full scope of Super-parentage.
    Oh no, I'm all in favour of what PupsOfWar was saying. I think the role of parenthood should be explored more in the superhero universe. I just find it ironic that he mentioned Superman and the exact plot point popped up in Injustice, but went a totally different (and incredibly dark) way

    Avengers Arena looks and sounds great.

    It's More:

    Spider-Woman = Sailor Moon (Check the bow)/Magical Girl
    Cannonball= Sentai Hero (the design is similar to Redman or Mirrorman)
    Captain Marve = Samurai Hero (the garb is veryu formal)
    Sunspot= Ninja Hero (though Not Naruto, thankully)
    Black Widow = Metal Hero (though the arm weapons reminds me of Zone Fighter's Meteor Attack)

    I would have gone with:
    Black Widow = Ninja (Go full Naruto just because)
    Spider-Woman = Magical Girl (Nanhoa or Madoka style)
    Cannonball= Cyborg 009
    Captain Marvel= Ultraman
    Sunspot = Kamen Rider

    But I don't mind either way.

    Reviewing is a lot like paleontology: the evidence is there, but no one seems to agree on it.

    I wouldn't put a bet on that with the way New Avengers is going. Expect Wakanda/Atlantis war.

    Avengers Arena discussion goes here.

    Discussion on Avengers solicitations remain in this thread.

    Like Will.S said, this isn't actually getting us anywhere and people could continually going on barking at each other over the specifics of Arena for another twenty pages or whatever. How about we all step back, breathe and go back to talking about Spock riding a Therizinosaurus huh? Never thought I'd get to see Doc Ock secretly in Spidey's body riding such an obscure but awesome dinosaur!

    I think obscure but awesome prehistoric animals are getting more facetime in fiction as a whole. Primeval had dozens of them, and in Teen Titans, the first animal Beasts Boy turned into was a Gorgonopsid.

    It's a good time to be a paleo nerd.

    Spock and the Therizionsaur is just the icing on the cake . . .

    Oh God, now I'm picturing a gag series from that (though with Star Trek's Spock instead of Marvel's).

    Spider Woman's legs look too long.

    Stylistic, to further convey Sailor Scouty-ness?

    Hey, there's no Avengers Assemble. What happened to that?

    Can anyone tell if Kate has those ridiculous hip-holes on her uniform in that cover?

    Aw man, Primeval was so awesome (I wish they would make a new season already, though I heard there's like a Canadian version of it coming out). Yeah, I used to be a MASSIVE geek for dinosaurs, before I could even walk apparently, and I still love the critters. So yeah, Savage Land is cool with me! As long as Hyperion's a good dad and Spock is like the cranky old uncle, this looks like it will be great.

    Hmm, well it's not the entire Avengers solicitations so it's probably in the full list.

    I hope not. But as someone pointed out, Avengers Assemble is also missing.

I've always wanted to see Shang, surrounded by some fine Avengers women, walking down a casino in East Asia. Master of Lady Fu if you know what I mean

    Now, I do have some nitpicks. The people in Hong Kong don't go to Hong Kong casinos. They usually take the two hour ferry ride to Macau, which has a TON of opulent casinos and hotels. If you recall, Macau was featured in the latest James Bond movie, "Skyfall." It's basically the Las Vegas of East Asia.

    Moreover, the cover is definitely shooting for a Japanese/Anime look, probably to gain a greater mass appeal. Now, the characters look awesome, but I kinda wince at the cover. I think the illustrator could have pulled inspiration from wuxia films like "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" or hard boiled John Woo films. Perhaps Weaver could have used some of that 1930s Chinese style that's seen in "Avatar: Korra" or the Batman Shanghai short.

    Still, at the end of the day, there's a Shang-Chi story taking place in Hong Kong in the main Avengers book. That's something to be proud of. I hope my young students (many of whom are huge Avengers and Spider-Man fans) get a kick when I tell them about this.
    Good point on Macau, but again, I think that both Hickman and Weaver are aware of the difference between Japan and Hong Kong. I'm guessing there's a plot reason for the Japanese outfits.
