random thoughts:

The Initiative: a new class. Kind of surprised that this isn't an Invasion crossover. This makes me happy. I recognize Annex and Prodigy, not sure about the rest. Butterball seems like one of those characters that will polarize fans quickly.

Classic Avengers: no surprise it is getting canned. I'm sorry, but most of those early tales are far from "Classic". They should have done a few then jumped ahead to Thomas/Buscema.

Iron Fist: It seems like I was in the minority of fans who really liked the last stand-alone issue spotlighting an Iron Fist of the past. I'm looking forward to the next.

Giant-Size Hulk: I've dropped Hulk, but at last Roger Stern is writing for Marvel again. I will pick this up for his tale.

Avengers/Invaders: Yay!
X-Factor special spotlighting Quicksilver: double yay!

It doesn't surprise me that there are tie-in mini's to Invasion. I might pick up the FF-the team of Sacasa and Kitson sounds promising.

Me too. Have zero interest in Secret Invasion, so the fewer crossovers intruding into the Marvel titles I do get, the better. The only SI tie-in that won't make me skip an issue is the Hercules one w/ the newly assembled God Squad(I haven't seen Demogorge pop up since Atlantis Attacks!) going up against the Skrull gods. That's about the only SI tie-in that actually sounds interesting to me.

Will be good to see Prodigy again at the very least.

Yeah, I think they should have done something similar. Start the reprints just hitting on the important ones(#1, #4, like that) before cutting into the really good stuff. Kind of a shame they couldn't find a way to make this reprint book work. It was stuff like Marvel Tales featuring Spider-Man and Classic X-Men that helped turn me on to those characters in the first place. Then again, w/ Masterworks and Essentials out there, is there even a need for this type of monthly reprint book anyway?

I also enjoyed the look back at other Iron Fists, and am also looking forward to the next.

Might be worth it for that alone. I certainly have no interest in King-Size Hulk.

> Avengers/Invaders: Yay!

Wow, just looking at the cover one can see Quicksilver's had better days.

My own random thoughts:

Marcos Martin doing an ASM stint? Really liked his work on Batgirl: Year One and The Oath. That title has certainly gotten artists who do excellent renditions of Spidey.

Amazing Spider-Girl - That's a Brand New May indeed.

American Dream - gotta find room in the budget for this.

Ghost Rider - I wonder if that solicit is implying that the Dan Ketch GR is returning? Makes no real difference to me I guess. Liked Ketch, but still preferred the Blaze GR/Zarathos. Would like to check out GR again. The Way version didn't do anything for me, but a preview of Aaron's Blaze didn't arouse my interest either. And the whole angel business is still off-putting.

Guardians of the Galaxy - It has Cosmo in it? As if I could be even more sold! \:D

Nova - Nova Vs. Surfer and Galactus. 'nuff said.

The new Captain Britain title looks interesting, especially since it looks like Black Knight will be there!

Thor - I'm really curious where the title plans on going after the Asgardians are restored.
