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.

I could swear this isn't a new character...

> 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.

I agree... but it's a waste that we didn't even make it to #16.

> 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.

As am I. I'm adding this book to my regular pull list with the start of the next arc, and buying the trade of the current one.

> 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.

Yeah, I'll buy just about anything if Stern writes it. \:\)

> Avengers/Invaders: Yay!

Agreed.

> X-Factor special spotlighting Quicksilver: double yay!

Also agreed.

> 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.

True. I'm particularly thrilled, by the way, that the original War Machine arcs are being collected in trade in May. Yay!
