Recapping Comic News

Fallen behind on comic news? Understandable, there is a ton of it out there right now. Here's a recap for ya!

Ed Brubaker and Mike Deodato are launching Secret Avengers. Marvel has released shadowed images of some of the team.

Brian Michael Bendis and John Romita Jr. are launching a new Avengers title. Marvel has released 5 team members, Winter Cap, Spider-Woman, Hawkeye, Thor, and Iron Man.

Jeff Parker is sticking with the Thunderbolts. Luke Cage is leading the new team consisting of Moonstone, Juggernaut, Ghost, and Crossbones. It sounds like the rest of the lineup will be filled by ex-Tbolts and random villains for specific arcs.

Baron Zemo is going back to his villainous ways in Ed Brubaker's Captain America, starring Winter Cap.

Amadeus Cho is becoming the Prince of Power in a new limited series by Greg Pak and Fred Van Lente.

Jeff Parker is getting another chance at an Agents of Atlas ongoing with the new title Atlas. I think 3-D Man is joining!

Marvel is putting out an Age of Heroes limited taking a peek at heroes in the brigher era (including Doctor Voodoo!)

Bruce Wayne/Batman is returning as a time-lost vigilante in Grant Morrison and Andy Kubert's Return of Bruce Wayne. Too bad, I rather like NightBats.

Peter Tomasi is launching a new Green Lantern: Warriors title, starring Guy Gardner (and sometimes Kilowog).

Tony Bedard is taking over as regular writer for Green Lantern Corps, starring Kyle Rayner, John Stewart, and GL Ganthet.

DC has confirmed that Aquaman will appear in the new Brightest Day series (by Geoff Johns and Peter Tomasi) along with other heroes getting "second chances. Johns promises that not every second chance will work out.

Have I forgotten any big ones?
