I do too.
One book. Its been too long.

Interesting choice of writer.
Ed McGuinness on artis a bonus. Not one of their stable of generic interchangeable artists. Yet.

At least he is a he...at least unless the rumours are true and Jane becomes Thor's Mortal Identity.

She-Hulk looks too muscular.

Thor’s golden arm looks a bit boring.

Captain Marvel is the kiss of death to any series. They really should shelve her for a while. She’s so damn boring.

Any Ghost Raider seems like a bad fit for an Avengers team unless they radically change the typical Ghost Rider personality.

Decent line-up but I’d rather have Wasp than Captain Marvel, and I’d rather have Kid or Teen Loki over Doctor Strange (though I don’t know what they’re doing with Loki nowadays.)

Seems they're abandoning the whole "Legacy" bit,& getting back to basics....thoughts?

Any sane person knew this was coming. The Alonso-SJW-era has been a sales DISASTER and led to dozens of stores closing. The Diversified Knock-offs pandered to a vocal minority who don't buy comics and Marvel comics and staff have openly shown hatred for their fans for a few years now.

This fresh start is the beginning of the healing process. Whether I return to Marvel will depend on the writers on the books I am interested in. I'm not going to support writers who have openly insulted the fans and I won't support Jason Aaron (on anything) simply for what he has pulled on Thor - which is a shame because I would have jumped on board the Avengers as I am a big McGuinness fan.

As regards the team itself it just looks like too many characters to me, not sure what the rest of you think on that point?

I mean, Big Three I understand - to get some stability and returning fans.

Doctor Strange and Black Panther are both riding high in movie popularity so fair enough - although BP (to me) always seemed like a cross between Tony & Cap and Doc Strange always seems a bit Deus Ex Machina in the comics.

Captain Marvel has a movie coming out soon, so that's understandable even though she's so bloody unlikable.

She-Hulk and Ghost Rider...I dunno. Might have been interesting having a completely new character in there.

I can sort of understand the line-up, but not sure I necessarily think its a good line-up.

What's the odds the first villain is Thanos...?  ::)

To me, six is good, eight is too much.
