What's got us most excited about Marvel's new Heroic Age status quo? Ed Brubaker's Secret Avengers. With an oddball cast of espionage experts and military masterminds, this title looks to give Marvel's flagship superteam a pulpy twist.
We interviewed Brubaker this spring, and he promised an Avengers title with super-spy trappings and Lovecraftian themes. Add a curious cast of heroes that includes Beast, Moon Knight, and Nova, and you have the makings of a utilitarian superteam that won't get bogged down by its own pomp and circumstance.
