This is a panel from the final page of today's New Avengers #3.
This was a panel from the first page of Avengers #1. It was referenced again in New Avengers #1.
This is where it all kicks in. This is where the Illuminati step up. This issue looks like it will be a major stepping stone in the future of the New Avengers, Captain America, Thanos and the upcoming Infinity crossover. Think World War Hulk as well… lines are crossed. Serious lines, the likes of which can't be uncrossed. It will also make you want to go back and read all the Marvel NOW Avengers again.
It's also a pretty good comic, which helps. I guess this is the most important comic book Marvel publish today…
I've tried not to spoil anything. Did I succeed? And where did Black Panther's cowl go?
