If I knew how to use photoshop, I'd make a picture of the Red Skull breastfeeding a baby. Somehow I think that would be worse.

I would photoshop my face onto the Red Skull's, and Benderbrau's onto the baby.

But I'm too lazy, and I don't know what BB looks like.

Avengers #1

It's soo good to be back.... First I love that spidey is just an avenger, he really is at this point. Anyways I loved the opening, seeing the Next Avengers made me mark out so much. This issue is my son's "issue" (When my kids are born I get a comic when they are born to be the first in their future collection, my daughters was the recent Wonder Woman #1) and I have no problem this being the comic that starts it all for him. The story had it all. The Next Avengers and their ominous future is interesting. I don't trust Kang at all, and know it will be your typical Avengers vs. Next Avengers before we get the Next Avengers teaming up with their parents, (Is Black Panther the missing avenger?)

The setting up of the team and the meet up at Avengers tower was a bit hockey and I enjoyed it, especially thor's I don't know who you are.

art wise I have always had a problem with JR. I liked WWH and grew to sorta enjoy it for that , but here I just plain don't like it and I am already hoping they change artists at 12 issues (if not sooner please) but he is still talented and i was able to enjoy the issue for whats it worth.

Story - 8
art - 5
+.5
overall - 7

THE AVENGERS #1
What a fun book. I loved the tone, the cast, and the art. I also really like what Marvel is doing with Steve Rogers, it seems like a natural progression for him to have this role especially with Bucky back (and being the new Cap). I see a lot of complaints about Spider-Man and Wolverine being on the roster but I understand why they are, how could Marvel not have their 2 most popular characters on their flagship book? I am fine with it, I have more of an issue with Spider-Woman being on the squad... I am not sure what she offers and I think Ms. Marvel would have been a better fit... minor quibbles aside, I really enjoyed this, from the Next Avengers being featured, all the Marvel characters reacting to Captain Rogers pitch, to the reveal at the end... I think Bendis knocked this one out of the park and I am really looking forward to issue 2.

STORY - 9.5

ART - 9

OVERALL - 9.25

It's weird, but...there's a lot of Red Skull-themed baby clothes on the internet...
