Read the first ish. Spoilers:
Spoiler (Highlight to view) -
The artwork is alright, not great. The best looking pages are the pages that focus on Thing for some reason. The story is alright too, but it seems episodic, like you'll have to read all six chapters before you can fully rate it.
Didn't find out much about Ohm unless he's that scientist guy pulling the strings.
There's some funny moments here. A bunch of comic book geeks like yours truly rag on Thing getting his but kicked by everybody in Marvel. Elektra reminds Wolverine how she always schools him, which reminds me of the time she had to retrain Wolverine after he went savage after a failed attempt to get his Adamantium back.
At the end of the tale, Wolverine, Spider-Man, Elektra and Thing are brainwashed or whatever and they all look different. Elektra becomes green (will there be pallette swaps like the Capcom games? ). Thing gets some wierd green wiring over his rocks. Spider-Man has a strange spider on his chest. Wolvie looks the same(going by memory, the book's not in fromt of me now since I'm supposed to be working...). These versions seem like they might be alternate costumes in the game.
No sign of Iron Man.
Wolverine and Spider-Man don't say anything about being Avengers, so we don't know when the story takes place but it looks like it's roughly a story that can happen at anytime. Assuming the story will be considered canon later on.
The story feels like Contest of Champions II, Aliens kidnapping and brainwashing heroes so they can fight each other, well, for the most part in this story it seems like they are capturing to experiment and shtuff...
Anyway, bring on issue 2!
End of Spoiler
Ryu and Chun-Li forever!

From the Marvel Nemesis Comic, possible alternate outfits of Spider-Man, Thing, Wolverine and Elektra.
Those seem pretty . . . weak. The Wolverine one even more so. Its interesting that Marvel approved that design since they appear to have been using a rather universal short and stout Wolverine design in both New Avengers and Amazing X-Men. But I guess they are going for a more movie universe look since Nemesis Wolverine has a slight resemblence to it.
When I looked at the cover and saw the green Elektra I thought She-Hulk was going to be in it, but sadly she isn't. Well at least not yet.
At first I thought this game would focus more on the characters from movie properties, but with the addition of Iron Man there is hope for some more comic only guys like Captain America and Thor. But I would like to see Blade in this game, his movie image seems to fit right into the mood EA has created.
Back to the comic, I might pick up a TPB if one comes out, probably around the release of the game.
