The main thing to be gotten out of the teasers Marvel released a few weeks ago is that Fear Itself is going to have a lot of hammers, as every teaser has featured several characters, both good and bad, surrounding famous Marvel hammers. Now we have this cover with Juggernaut, Grey Gargoyle, and what appears to be the Hulk with a bionic arm, and each is wielding a hammer that they were shown by in the teasers. Then we have a chained up Thor on the top of it, and yeah. They had me with Fear Itself when they said Fraction was writing it. This is just building up the hype. Plus, Grey Gargoyle on an event cover, how awesome is that?
