Before Captain America, before The Twelve, there was The Aviatrix, The Operative, Achilles, The Revenant and The Surgeon!

What drives these five heroes to pull on masks and take to the rooftops of Manhattan? What dark conspiracy not only brings them together, but threatens to tear the America apart? On the hunt to solve a brutal murder, our champions will smash their way from gleaming penthouses of privilege to squalid alleyways, as the full horror of their enemies’ schemes unfolds! Get ready for an action packed, edge-of-your-seat and in-continuity super hero adventure like no other when Marvel’s first champions take the case this June, only in Mystery Men #1 (of 5)!

  1. I know nothing about this or the creators but looks like it could be interesting; what’s the buzz?

  2. Here’s the preview pages iFanboy ran last month. It looks great.

  3. Thank you sir, I remember thinking that looked good now actually.  

  4. I feel like this title is either a hit or miss, no in between

  5. @RickyStardust  My pleasure!

  6. These period-piece kind of stories always get me excited and though they typically let me down, I always try them out at the beginning

  7. Super excited for this one!

  8. Anybody ever heard of the creative team before this? I picked it up cuz the art looked good and the first page with the playboy superhero intrigued me, looking forward to reading it

  9. This was really great.

  10. This was absolutely amazing. 

  11. This was great. i didn’t know anything about it but i flipped through it and saw two things, fedoras and a girl laying dead surrounded by arcane symbols. sold

  12. Picked it up on a whim and MAN was that a lot of fun!

  13. @wangman: I know Liss is currently writing Black Panther

    So for me this as a complete hit, actually potw hit. I loved the new characters introduced especially the revenant. I think much can be explored with the racial tensions in this time period and him. I can not wait to find out about the surgeon, he is the one I have been most interested in. Also did anyone else get a 60 -70s era Tony Stark from Piper in the beginning?


    If Echo hadn’t ended this week, this would’ve been my POW. Holy shit!

  15. I’m really tempted to go back to the shop and get this one. Will definitely get the HC if not.

  16. This is off to a great start. My POW.

  17. POW here for sure.  Nothing else I bought came close.

  18. Surprisingly great

  19. Picked it up this week after reading all the positive notes and reviews here. It was a truly great read. I cannot wait to read next week’s issue!
