Marvel’s HEROIC AGE
We all know that after Norman Osborn’s Dark Reign, Marvel would enter a new HEROIC AGE. And based from the teasers released by Marvel the big 3 - Captain America, Iron Man and Thor - would reunite to reform the AVENGERS. The question is, which Captain America is it? And if this is the new Avenger’s line up, where’s Luke Cage?
Well Marvel just released some new teasers regarding the Avenger’s line-up. Aside from the big three the line up includes: Clint Barton as Hawkeye and the Jessica Drew Spider-Woman. Also it seems that the Captain America is indeed Bucky Barnes as the new teasers depict him carrying a gun.
So here’s my theory: Bucky Barnes would be wielding Captain America’s shield. But since Steve Rogers can’t be without one, he’d get a new SHIELD. One that stands for Strategic Hazard Intervention, Espionage Logistics Directorate. With Osborn out of the way and with the images of both Tony Stark and Nick Fury tainted, only Steve Rogers can fill that position.
But where’s Luke Cage? Well, there’s a new teaser making the rounds. One that depicts Luke Cage with three characters from the left side of the original teaser - Hawkeye, Black Widow, and Gorilla Man. The teaser also includes Hank Pym and Bobbi Morse. So if were going to assume that the right side of the teaser is the main AVENGERS team, then is this a second team? I’m half-expecting The Beast to re-join the Avengers since the latest X-Men storyline have him taking a leave of absence from the team.
But the biggest question of all still remains unanswered: Is this brighter and friendlier HEROIC AGE a mandate from Marvel’s new parent company Disney?
