All New All Different Marvel – Week 6

Week six of Marvel’s All-New All-Different relaunch puts that mouthful of a moniker right smack on the cover of at least one flagship title. Waid and Kubert’s Avengers title isn’t New or Uncanny, or even Ultimate (also debuting this week), but it does feel like the focal book of the Avengers line. We got out first tease of this series back in May with a Free Comic Book Day edition, and now, in its full-length glory, Earth’s Mightiest kick-off a galactic romp that hearkens back to the pre-Disassembled Kurt Busiek days.

The seven new series hitting shelves this week brings the total up to an even thirty. X-23 takes up the Wolverine mantle. Team Hawkeye picks up from Perez and Lemire’s 5-issue run earlier in the year. A psychopathic super-villain gets top-billing. A cluster of Spider-people are the new Exiles. Heroes for Hire gets worked. And more! Including The Mandarin in a sweet suit.

I had no idea this public relations thing was happening with Mutants and Inhumans, but I love the idea. I’m not a huge Deadpool fan, but with this unusual group of characters, I can see myself warming up to him. The opportunity for rogue Inhumans to pop up is a source for some fun arcs, but I think watching the team grow and react will be hella awesome. It’s really interesting to see a combination of mainstream titles utilize second-tier heroes. There’s a lot of this book that is new to me: old Steve Rogers, Quicksilver isn’t Magento’s son, there’s an Inhuman named Synapse… but all of this makes me want to read more. – RF
