IMHO, it certainly lacks the entertainment and creativity of Uncanny Avengers, which has quite captivated me.

    Uncanny Avengers, you say? I've not been reading it. How good is it? What's it like?

    Well, Red Skull is back. Actually, this is the REAL Red Skull, whose brain was hidden away in the 40's and (in Marvel-land) just woke up last week in a cloned body. With his old-time thinking, Skullie decides to launch a war between humans and mutants, and starts his process by messing with the brain of Avalanche and having him attack and kill human people. Then Skullie creates his own army of evil super-powered freaks. And, last but certainly not least, he steals Xavier's body from his tomb, and puts a portion of Xavier's brain into his own head, thereby making Red Skull the most powerful (and most evil) telepath on Earth.

    Oh, and the Uncanny Avengers have lots of hatred and mistrust of each other.

    A creepy but fun good read!

    It's one of those books that people either really enjoy or hate; at least on the internet anyway.

    I enjoy it, and it definitely has an 80's Avengers & X-Men vibe to me.

    Omega Flight aren't in the next few issues.

    I've followed this series since #1 and I'm loving it, and I've never enjoyed Avengers titles as a whole.
    It's definitely got that big epic picture feel to it and I can see why it was confusing to people that hadn't read the previous issues.

    When they were re-evolving, and there was a male character with a 'T', and a female with the same symbol, then a horse-like thing with the same symbol again...
    Was that one character, two, or three?
    Who was it / who were they?

    Thx.

    That was three possible evolutions of the same character, as per the other panels.
    The character was the new Imperial Guard Smasher

    Smasher is a title that has been passed on to hundreds of different people. In the Imperial Guard if one dies, another takes his/her place

    Not all the other panels showed only one person, which confused me (eg: the Wolverine one had that character he called 'Eden' in it).

    I think I've seen Smasher in the Imperial Guard before.
