    Not entirely. While what you said is true, the group (the U-Men) also would attempt to graft parts of Mutants into themselves in an attempt to gain their powers. Martha is a victim of them who left her a disembodied brain in a jar.

    So, it went unnoticed, but an AU Billy and Tommy have appeared on issue #3 of Marvel Knights some months ago! lol.


    It's co-written by Tini Howard, who's writing the new Death Hand's series. I think Wanda is a cult leader or maybe just a weirdo witch or something...

    ^spoilers:
    Billy was just a construct of the Vision, appearing alongside similar versions of Ms Marvel, Ironheart, and Winter Soldier. Hulkling and America were the real characters, with Blue Marvel's Avengers World team.

    Well, at least they're showing up in the background again that hasn't happened since Dennis Hopless' Spider-Woman ended.

    Were the boys in their MOST CURRENT attire?

    I noticed a preview image of Billy/Teddy on the twitterz for that weird book they're appearing in eventually and they're in their 2nd iteration costumes from the Heinberg era.

    I'm not sure if this was mentioned upthread, but apparently there will be a Billy and Teddy story in War of the Realms: War Scrolls #2, written by Anthony Oliveira.

    Good to see you can harass one of a publisher's top talents and they will later reward you with work.

    That is news to me... the solicit didn't mention the Wiccan and Hulkling story at all, we thought they were only due to appear in Unstoppable Wasp and Death's Head.

    spoilers:
    Oliveira was one of the most egregious of the social media buffoons over Hydra Cap, because he wasn't one of the acceptable "OMG what is marble dooiiiin types" who don't follow comics, or the intermediate and disrespectful hypocrite type who brought up Simon and Kirby because they had no argument, but the one who went as far as to accuse Spencer of promoting white supremacy because Hydra Cap lifted Mjolnir (completely ignoring the story being Marvel's most anti-facist ever because suddenly you can't do things that can be twisted out of context, which is not only moronic outside of a vaccuum, but two years later hasn't happened with that imagery), but he even associated Spencer with Charlottesville because a guy wore a generic Hydra t-shirt (as if he was inspired by a comic book and not Hydra's prominence in acclaimed blockbuster Winter Soldier, but of course Anthony didn't throw any shade at Marvel Studios), he also would tag Spencer so his followers could dogpile his Twitter with ease, and even took Nick's notes that resisting white supremacist public figures through violence isn't going to effectively stop them or help us (which was true but being anti-violence conflicted with the current Twitter meme) to spin into character assassination and how he shouldn't be writing Captain America, of course through screencaps to all his followers for thousands upon thousands to see. And all of this was directed towards the writer, not the company.

    Now there seems to be some kind of collective amnesia surrounding the lengths certain people went to during that time, so he can not only be a consultant on flagship Marvel books (he got a credit on the new Daredevil, so add that to the list of random things otherwise very solid talent Zdarsky does to bother me), but he can also now get actual work from the company because Wil Moss and some other Marvel creators follow him on Twitter for some reason. I mean, it's just an anthology story while Spencer's on the most popular character in comics, but it's the principal of the thing. There's definitely a typo somewhere in here.

    So, uh, Kate got a Marvel 101 vid! Very cool, huh?!

    So Secret Empire now sticks out the only event without an explanation for the absence of Billy Teddy. Which is ridiculous since it had Cassie kidnapped off screen and none of them did anything.
