Thread: Avengers: The Initiative Preview (SPOILERS)

    Avengers: The Initiative Preview (SPOILERS)

    A preview of the first pages of Avengers: The Initiative is available at Pop Culture Shock. The web site incorrectly calls it Civil War: The Initiative and uses the wrong cover image, but the sample pages are definitely for the Slott/Caselli project.

    Wow, that's a great sequence...looking forward to it.

    Is War Machine definitely Jim Rhodes?

    These are scans from the latest MARVEL PREVIEWS. And on the page, this looks AWESOME!

    This is going to be great. I'm really excited.

    Is there going to be ANY Iron Man fans left after Civil War is over? This is not Dan's fault---Civil War established the "new" Tony Stark like this---but I find him completely unlikable now.

    Cool.

    This IS a good start.

    BTW, that is War Machine, not Iron Man.
    War Machine is Jim Rhodes.

    We are getting David Michelinie and Bob Layton Iron-Man: The End mini series, which I would imagine will run for 6 issues, so at least I'll be enjoying Iron-Man, as they'll do it right. Hopefully after that's over, Marvel will have pulled the plug on this new "version" of who Tony Stark is. They've turned him into a cold mannered person, not somebody with charm and warmth. This whole "extremis" thing needs to be done away with, too.

    Speaking of Dave and Bob's Iron-Man, I have a feeling John Romita Jr. is the artist Marvel is getting for it.

    I'm looking forward to Slott's new mini series. I try to support you where I can, Dan. I hope this goes over HUGE for you and the powers that be in a meeting one day have a light come on "Hey, let's put Dan Slott on a Spider-Man book."

    I don't quite like that art as much as the first images that we saw, though. I like it enough, don't get me wrong, it's just not my #1 favorite type of style, as I like styles that are more realistic and traditional like Steve Epting, Alan Davis, Marc Silvestri, Dale Keown, Mike Zeck, etc... It's still nice art.

    Can't wait for this!

    I just realised....

    I know that they only mentioned the FAA and needing a licence to fly, but doesn't this count as even more of a hint that the Pro-reg side won?

    Text on the first page says this scene takes place during Civil War.
