    This honestly feels like an attempt to redeem that idea, considering the roster.

    Very disappointed Elektra didn't even show up. More like Sausage Avengers.

    The Red Hulk Thunderbolts went for 32 issues, 2.5yrs so it's not like it was a failed roster with that moniker.
    In the publishing cycle of today where 18-22 issues is considered a healthy run that makes this a great run.

    Same! And reading the solicits, I kind of wouldn't be surprised if she's not in the next issue (or barely in it), and won't show up until issue 3.

    This is the kind of book I'd at least try out regardless, but Elektra's obviously the biggest draw for me.

    It had a decent shelf-life, but I'm not sure many people would categorize the run overall (especially Way's initial arcs) as "good". It kind of skated by on the merits of the roster, not necessarily quality.

    Soule's contribution was the only run of that book worth reading in my opinion. Way's start was brutal.
    On your left, 'till the end of the line.
    Maximum effort.

    I am intrigued. The first issue had all sorts of problems structurally as a single issue, but the setup, the characters, the art, I am on board for the possibilities. Although, not much to really take away from this, a lot of setup seems to be needed getting the team together.

    Any signs in this that Aaron's CtB could potentially be derailed? I'd rather drop off now than have to sit through any Conan in the MCU nonsense. Hopefully it goes untouched?

    I've enjoyed the hell out of CtB so far, but I'm not down with Wolverine showing up.

    Hey Now!! He has his fans too. Heís the only reason Iím reading this, well, and Elektra!!!

    It was good to see him involved early, from the sound of things, Duggan really likes writing the character. So Iím expecting him front and center throughout this run.

    I mean, we're only one issue in, so it's hard to say. However, it feels like any potential crossover of the present day roster into the Hyborian age will be restricted to this book, similar to how Scarlet Witch's jaunt to that age was restricted to No Road Home.

    They could improve the roster and avoid Tokenism/Smurfette by swapping Venom for Blade (since he's leaving Avengers soon) and adding Widow (since she's homeless despite being a star in the hottest movie ever).

    Blade is such an obvious pick for this team that I'm surprised he isn't in it from the start.
    Widow actually has her own book and is starting in the Hotshots mini. She should be co-leading the Secret Avengers with Okoye thought.
    Aside crom Blade, I think Satana would have been a really solid choice and would make this team more balanced.

    Said it months ago but yes Blade would be a perfect fit for this team.
