    Unlettered, but you can get the gist. Oh, Teddy...
    It's really nice seeing Teddy on all those covers. I still can't believe he really is the protagonist of an entire event.

    Things being less than friendly between the Kree/Skrulls and the FF/Avengers is not exactly shocking. It's how I pretty much imagined the event would start. I'm sure by the end of it, they'll be on the same side, though. Anyway, CAN WE TALK ABOUT HOW TEDDY SINGLE-HANDEDLY STOPPED MJOLNIR USING EXCELSIOR???? That. was. so. badass. I really hope Ewing and Slott take Teddy to the next level as a cosmic hero, not only story-wise, but power-wise.

    Good timing. Hopefully the fact that they are reprinting this means something...

    ManaByte says on his site's report of the news that "I’ve been able to confirm that the casting information they are going off of is legitimate."
    I feel like while the casting for a hispanic actress is definitely true, the part about her being specifically America may be mostly speculation. Charles Murphy seems to think so, at least. Like, even the way the website words it; saying she ''may'' or ''might'' appear is different from the Hulkling reports, which were pretty straightforward about him being cast, so I'm gonna keep my hopes down for this one... Although it would make sense for MAC to debut here, considering her powers. And it would fit with previous rumors we got about her getting her own show. Let's hope for the best!

    Hopefully that TPB solicit means I was right before and YA will relaunch in May or June, either as part of Empyre or Outlawed. The announcement for Miles Morales's Outlawed tie-in did say that it was "one of the first", which means there WILL be more after April!

    I think this might count as another Hulkling in MCU related rumor.

    No, it doesn't. Secret Invasion involves Skrulls, but that means nothing, because the MCU already introduced them.

    Why do that storyline if you're not going to at least introduce other notable Skrulls, especially Princess Anele.

    She wasn't introduced in Secret Invasion in the comics, in fact she was dead before Teddy's debut - she appeared way back in the 60s in Fantastic Four. Hulkling's main role in SI was that he got to meet his Dad - who was a fake, because Mar-Vell turned out to be a Skrull, not a time traveller or resurrected as he believed. And we already know Hulkling's parentage will be changed in the MCU because Mar-Vell was gender swapped in Captain Marvel.

    Well, what story would they make out of an entire television show devoted to an event that mainly focused on the Avengers and Norman Osborn?

    Not sure how reliable Bleeding Cool is with Marvel Studios scoops. Honestly, I'm not even sure if they're reliable with comics rumors right now. They were definitely wrong about YA replacing Champions, after all...

    And the Champions team apparently remaining completely intact, so it's not even the case that a couple of members would move over to the YAs, which was part of that rumour. They could have been right, but plans changed due to Empyre and Outlawed. Apparently YA was supposed to relaunch... according to another BC article, their page in Marvel Comics #1000 was changed ahead of publication, having originally been meant to set up a reunion. Empyre obviously scotched that because of Hulkling's heavy involvement there, and then Outlawed was pitched, which saved the Champions from being disbanded and led to New Warriors being resurrected as well. Young Avengers might still be coming back, but it won't be what was being planned when BC posted that article about it.

    They really better not have Teddy go full villain. We don't need that kind of character assassination.

    And after his little exchange with Kl'rt in Incoming, I'm kind of hoping Teddy gets to call out Stark and Richards for what they did during Civil War...the whole 'getting him vivisected' thing as well as the torture for Billy, the drugging, and the whole illegal locking in the sanity-eating alternate dimension prison thing...

    Literally what I was thinking Billy and Teddy have only dealt with Reed during Civil War which was not his finest hour. Neither of them probably have anything pleasant to say about him.

    I don't want Teddy to be genocidal, but he's the leader of a major cosmic empire

    I want all of the politic intrigue that he's been avoiding for years. The uprisings on the outer rimworlds, the back stabbings in the noble court, the alliances with other empires

    Yeah, I can see it now.

    Klrt "We need a strong response, we can't look weak!"

    Teddy "Your philosophy is what brought both the Skrull and the Kree to the brink of ruin over the last centuries, and left you brought so low you looked to *me* for leadership. Sit down, shut up and let me lead."
