Courtesy of bleeding cool, we have our first look at the first 3 covers for the upcoming Avengers comic; which form a connecting cover revealing the team's new members.
To make it clear, the team features Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, Hulk, Hawkeye, Black Widow, Captain Marvel, Spider-Man, Spider-Woman, Wolverine, Sunspot, Canonball, Falcon and a new mystery character in the back-round.
I'm counting fourteen members, so presumably there are still 4 members to be announced (seeing as it was announced there would be 18 members) so I'm hopeful to see characters like Vision and Black Panther added to this roster.
So what do you guys think? Are you pleased with the cast? Are you frustrated to see Wolverine still on the team? Are there any other characters you hope are added? Personally I am very pleased to see Captain Marvel on the team, as I've really been enjoying her own series and am glad she'll be getting more exposure. Also, it that the green hulk I see? What happened to big red? And what's with the addition of some X-men characters? Lots to discuss and ponder surely, so I'll leave that up to you guys!
