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.

Butterball - it just sounds Slott - though this is scripted at least by Gage.

Gone? Interesting.

Roger Stern. Holy cow! That's great to see.

> Avengers/Invaders: Yay!

I'll be in for it!
