More Marvel NOW News and Teasers
Posted by Brant W. Fowler
This past week, Marvel has released some of the covers to upcoming Marvel NOW books as well as another crop of teasers, which I'm sure will be detailed starting tomorrow. You can check our Marvel NOW archive for all other related news, and as it really begins we'll be talking about it a lot more. So bookmark that spot and stay tuned! For now, here are the latest pieces of news and teasers I just mentioned.
First up are the covers for Avengers #1-3, which form a larger image comprising of the whole team when connected as seen below. This incarnation of the Avengers seems to include many heavy-hitters among others: Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, Spider-Man, Wolverine, Captain Marvel, Spider-Woman, Hawkeye, Black Widow, the Falcon, the Hulk, Cannonball, possibly Sunspot(?) and one other guy in the background I can't quite make out.

The Future of Marvel NOW! is Lightning
Daniel Way revealed to Newsarama in August that he would be writing a team book for Marvel NOW!, but couldn't go into any further detail. Given the wording and the crosshairs in the teaser above, my first thought is a new Thunderbolts book. Given that the original Thunderbolts title was changed to Dark Avengers not that long ago, it poses the question why? But the concept of Thunderbolts - having former villains on a superhero team - does seem to fit this teaser here. If it is indeed a team book, this is the safest bet. But then they could just be throwing us a curveball.
The Future of Marvel NOW! is Survive
This one is one of the more cryptic teasers as it really could be anyone at this point. There is speculation online that this could point to Cable, or have a connection with Nick Fury, etc., etc. The blood splatter provides some clues, but given the shake-ups in the current Marvel U. it's not quite clear what this teaser is pointing to. Interestingly, though, Dennis Hopeless is writing another title teased below...
The Future of Marvel NOW! is Wanted
The Future of Marvel NOW! is Killers
As teased at Baltimore Comic-Con and on other websites, these two teasers "Wanted" and "Killers" are connected. Some are speculating that these tie-in to X-Force, being one (Killers) could point to an X-Force title, and the other (Wanted) could point to a Cable title. With Cable's history with X-Force, that would connect the two. Or it could be that the "Killers" title are hunting whoever's in the "Wanted" title. As I said up top, all will surely be revealed this week concerning this crop of teasers.
