CAPTAIN AMERICA & THE MIGHTY AVENGERS #1 & 2

AL EWING (W), LUKE ROSS (A/C), Issue #1 - Variant cover by RYAN BENJAMIN, Issue #2 - Variant cover by SANFORD GREENE

Spinning directly out of AVENGERS & X-MEN: AXIS! Sam Wilson has become Captain America, and when he assembles the Mighty Avengers, he has a whole new mission statement in mind for Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. But how do the events of AXIS already spell doom for the team’s new direction? And what is Luke Cage doing meeting with the head of the notorious Cortex corporation? And why is Spider-Man trying to rejoin the team—doesn’t he know Luke and Jessica have been itching for payback ever since he tried to take their daughter to Child Services back when he was “Superior”?!

Issue #1 -

• They’re the Avengers for the people, of the people - helping whoever needs it, however they need it. And together with Sam Wilson - the all-new Captain America - they are Mighty. But in the wake of the earth-shattering events of AXIS, are they truly together? Or about to fall apart?

• Guest-starring the apologetic arachnid - Spider-Man!

Issue #2

• Once, Luke Cage was a man of the people… a champion of the community… a hero for everyone who needed help. But there’s a new Luke Cage in town… and the only one he’s helping is himself!

• Plus: Captain America declares war - on the Mighty Avengers!

AXIS TIE-IN!
• Marvel’s most honest and upright hero — now in his own magazine!
• With a quip on his lips and a song in his merry heart, Loki continues his dashing quest for truth, justice and the Asgardian Way!
• Guest-starring — the Enchantress! And some other people who think Loki’s “changed” somehow. BUT MOSTLY, THE ENCHANTRESS!

I’m at the #Ferguson apartments behind the QuikTrip. I do see orange flames, smoke but it’s unclear what is burning. About dozen young men holding signs W. Florissant/Northwinds Estates that say “Stop Killing Us” They’re shouting “F*** the police”. Protesters taunting police. Criticizing everything from #Ferguson police annual budget to calling them bitches to mocking curfew, tactics. Kid sat down “Hands up, dont shoot” Cops: “If youre sitting down it’ll make it easier for us to arrest you.” Police drove into group of protesters, firing tear gas I think. About 40 protesters gone. Shouted “F*** you” as they ran off. Wind shifted. Yep, tear gas. Police just shot at least three tear gas canisters at me. One hit my leg, one my backpack. They’re saying “Go home” I literally have nowhere to go. I’m hiding. A @bellevillenewsd photog, other journo with me. We held up media credentials. They drove into parking lot of private apartment complex and shot tear gas in circle, 10ft from us. They circled us, shot tear gas. We’re in bushes. Street we needed to get to car was blocked off by officers in armed vehicles. Our photographer @zianizami was hit by canister on arm.
