    I would use Warrior Woman /Hippolyta in the Squadron Supreme.

    Avengers 10? Already?

    Okay, if I must.

    I had no idea that the Crimson Dynamo used keys! If I didn't know better I would say that Aaron just butchered the tech for a cheap joke.

    Namor stuff works.

    Good to see Gorilla Man.

    Tony is drag racing Robbie? That is very cool and in character for each of them. Tony is offering a spiffy new wheelchair. That's...it? That would've been awesome if this book was being written in the 80s but now it kinda' makes Tony look cheap considering the stuff he has now.

    Remember Hercuthor? Well now Aaron has moved on to T.I.N.O. (Thor in name only) it's painful.

    The three way team brawl was fun and Thor had a memorable fight....just kidding Aaron made him job to the crab and then to the bear. He is the Worf of the Marvel universe now https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.p.../TheWorfEffect . She-Hulk pulled a Hulk.

    The Squadron Supreme is back? That looks promising.

    Love the issue. Breaking it down (spoilers abound obviously) with some highlights for me:

    •The use of The Winter Guard who I've always thought were awesome.
    •Enjoying the Defenders of the Deep and how vicious they are (also glad to hear Stingray is alive... I gravitate towards B/C/D listers so didn't want him to be dead).
    •Still loving the new HQ and am very interested in the Agents of Wakanda support staff coming up. Wasp is on it? It's gotta be good.
    •It's small moments that sometimes make an issue, and the convo between Captain Marvel and Thor was incredibly endearing and sweet and funny at the same time. Shows Thor may actually be developing some genuine feelings for Jen, which IMO is awesome. I don't know why these two weren't paired off together YEARS ago.
    •Jen's keeping a secret... that's not going to end well. Love the slow build of this. Love the power up. Love that she's working hard to control the power up. Love that she's loving the power up. Love that for once in an Avengers book there's some sort of She-Hulk development instead of her just being around because she's a good team player.
    •The government being angry because the leader of The Avengers is from Wakanda is something that NEVER occurred to me, but fits very well with today's political climate.
    •I do feel like Aaron needs to make Thor slightly more of a serious threat again during battles. It's Thor. He shouldn't be getting his butt handed to him at every opportunity.
    •VOSTOK and PERUN!!! I legit don't know if I remember reading anything with them in it since The Crossing Line story in The Avengers back in 1990. (I hardcore loved that storyline as a kid, and still do, so seeing these guys was possibly the highlight of the issue for me).
    •Small nitpick. Is it officially Vanguard or officially Red Guardian? Pak and Van Lente had him as Red Guardian like, two months ago in Weapon X, here, he's Vanguard.
    •Red Widow seems very intriguing.
    •She-Hulk kicked major @$$ against The Winter Guard's most powerful members... awesome!
    •The Squadron Supreme of America. I'm intrigued. Thank you for the folks who just in the last few replies remembered there already is a black Nighthawk in Joaquin Pennyworth who even led a team of Defenders (including She-Hulk) for a short run. Don't know whether or not it's him though obviously.
    •The Odin/Ghost Rider bits were the least of the issue, but maybe it's because I'm not a fan of the art? Still, wasn't bad.
    •The splash page with Punisher/Moon Knight/Iron Fist/The Hand etc. is intriguing.
    •WASP!!!!!
    •You know, I've NEVER even given a second thought to Blade as a member of The Avengers... but now that it's happening... gotta say, I'm really interested in it. More so for how he'll interact with the other team members (Blade/Thor, Blade/She-Hulk, Blade/Cap) than anything, but I definitely think he'll make for an interesting new addition.

    For THIS board I seem to be in the minority as I've been loving the series since issue one, but this one was definitely firing on all cylinders.

    Next issue is possibly the most excited I've been about an issue of The Avengers for a long time. Can't wait to see the She-Hulk/Thor date!

    Is this the first time we've seen Chernabog in the Marvel Universe?

    I've dug it since the start as well but it's been nice to see this book start winning over some of the initial doubters.

    This issue was just incredible as far as I'm concerned. I feel like if this one didn't do it for you, I don't know what would.

    The art is the only thing really keeping me around. If the writer manages to do something interesting it's a bonus.

    Yeah, who is this guy? I can't find much about him anywhere.

    This issue was basically amazing and great. I didn't much care for the beginning of this run and, frankly, I sort of felt like there wasn't much point to the Avengers. It just felt like they were going to go back to their normal stuff and there we go.

    But nope. Seeing all these other super teams pop up who have little to no relationship to the Avengers is fun and a well done commentary on current world events.
