This was free in my local comics shop. As usual I figured hey, it's free, why not?
Highlights for me personally:
Infinity Countdown #1 has classic Wolverine in it, and also Super Skrull, along with other characters, including some guy with silvery hair and bluish skin. I'll probably be buying this.
Classic Hulk (the Bruce Banner version) will be appearing in Avengers #684 and will be on a rampage.
There will be some weird Iron Man: Hong Kong Heroes one-shot that will have Tony Stark in it but won't have Tony in the suit, apparently, as whoever will be in the suit is a mystery. It's based on some Disney World ride? Villains are Baron Mordo and Arnim Zola. Who wants to bet the mystery suit-wearer will be Chinese? As this will be a whole story told in one issue (gasp) I will probably buy it.
Incredible Hulk #714 will feature Amadeus Cho on a rampage and is billed as World War Hulk II Part 1. Since Cho will finally be rampaging, I will probably buy this.
WEAPON H #1!!!!
Oh yes. This is what I wanted. Written by Greg Pak too. Beautiful. Must-buy. I am actually considering a new collector-ish impulse. I currently own or have ordered every single appearance of Weapon H thus far. I may decide to purchase his every appearance in any book. He could become my signature character. Heck, I'd rename myself Weapon H if it wouldn't mess up my godlike Maintainer powers (which it would).
Johnny Blaze Ghost Rider is getting a one-shot where he fights Mephisto. Unsure about this one, as it isn't really a done-in-one. It's part of a Mephisto event. But maybe I'll get it. I've noticed my tastes run strongly to the 90s triumvirate: Wolverine, Punisher, and Ghost Rider. I'm pretty sure I'd buy a Johnny Blaze Ghost Rider series if Marvel offered one and it had a good creative team.
Chip Zdarsky is my new favorite writer after reading Marvel 2-in-1 number one, and he is also writing Peter Parker: the Spectacular Spider-Man! Who knew? Did you? (Issues 301 and 302 any way.) I think I'll buy this. Because of Chip Zdarsky.
Apparently we're getting a Lockjaw four-part mini-series with D-Man, Ka-Zar, and Zabu. Unsure about this one.
All-New Wolverine will still feature Laura, so I'll probably keep buying it.
Cable's book will be continuing past the current arc. Cool. I'll probably keep buying it.
The Jailer will be returning to the pages of Black Bolt. Unsure how I feel about that. It may indicate the writer has nothing more to say and is rehashing past ideas, which would be sad. But I've been liking this book so far so I'll buy this issue and then decide if I've lost interest or not.
The blue skin/silver hair person is the Magus, the alternate evil counter part to Adam Warlock......
....and another example of a over recycled and badly recycled plot device.
