Noh-Varr, The Protector of the Lame

Noh-Varr Given Title Protector of Earth but also a Lame Costume

Noh-Varr, The Marvel Boy

Noh-Varr, The Marvel Boy

So recently in Dark Avengers Annual #1, the Kree super-boy known as Noh-Varr was on the run from his former teammates, the Dark Avengers. During this escape Noh-Varr was given new Nega-bands and appointed the new protector of Earth by Supreme Intelligence. However he was given a disgustingly design costume – it seems while the Supreme Intelligence is supremely smart, he’s a terrible designer. When I was reading this I assumed he would be called Captain Marvel because that was the codename given to him by Norman Osborn and it seemed that Bendis has been leading up to this in his Illuminati and Secret Invasion series. To bad Marvel changed their minds…

Fuck what the haters are saying about this Deadpool variant, it just proves to me how awesome he is and I actually want to buy this grossly over price variant now. Fuck you Marvel for doing something young, urban, and awesome.

Siege – New Avengers End, Dawn of Heroic Age

Witness the Marvel Universe triumph over its greatest challenges ever as the HEROIC AGE ignites! Still lurking in the shadows are forces of evil and cosmic-level threats, but a new spirit of hope, courage, and the selflessness at the heart of heroism will rise up. The most extraordinary tales ever will be told in this Heroic Age of the Marvel Universe. The Age of Heroes is upon us!

After five years, it seems the New Avengers is coming to a close. I’m actually happy that it is – I loved the comic the whole way through and nearly have every issue but since Civil War, it hasn’t felt like the Avengers. Much in the same sense that the Justice League doesn’t feel like the League without Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman. It just didn’t feel important or big enough. To me, the Avengers will always be Captain America, Iron Man, and Thor. Now that the Avengers books are being updated and streamlined (hopefully) I hope that the X-Universe gets the same make over. Utopia and all these mutant just hanging out on an island is dull and I miss having an actual cast of characters I see every month. Not random comments from everyone while Cyclops, Emma Frost, and Wolverine do all the work.

Marvel Comics February 2009 Solicits – Siege

Siege (Marvel Comics) February 2009 Solicits

Siege Event - Fall of Asgard

Siege Event - Fall of Asgard

I am so excited about Siege. It is the only event that will feature the Thor and ultimately the fall of Asgard. Add in the Dark Avengers (to be honest I’m only excited about more Thor and Ares interaction) and the New Avengers and you’ve got me hook, line, and sinker.

Besides Siege’s focus on Thor, the Cabal, and the Dark Avengers (I think the cover for Dark Avengers 14 confirmed Sentry’s death), I’m really looking forward to Secret Warriors and Guardian of the Galaxy (Yah for evil Adam Warlock).

Marvel Comics Event: The Siege

The Siege #1 Variant Cover

SIEGE #1 Variant Cover

The good folks over at Marvel.com has released the variant cover for their newest event, Siege.
From what I can tell it’s Captain American and Iron Man suiting up. I wonder why Thor didn’t make it into this beautiful rendered image by Simone Bianchi?
I’m really looking forward to this because it will not only shut up the classic Avenger fans it will also generate more interest around Thor and Asgard on Earth.
