    Definitely, I'm both intrigued by the current lineup, and interested in knowing what other Asian teams (like 'China Force,' the Triumph Division and Big Hero 6) are up to, and this group seems like the one that would touch on that area of the world, and heroes with ties to it (including Americans of Asian heritage, like Haechi, of the last 'new' New Warriors, or Loa, Indra or Omega Sentinel, of the X-crew). There's a lot of characters, both old and new, that tend to get overlooked with the focus on New York City and the (mostly American-centric, if not necessarily American by birth) Avengers/X-Men/Champions/etc.

    I would like to see Big Hero 6 make a reappearance, but given that Marvel seems to have ceded the characters over to Disney, I'm not sure how likely it is that they'll be coming back into the comics anytime soon. That said, I'm still on the hype train for New Agents of Atlas and have been enjoying the series thus far, though it would be cool to see Noriko Ashida/Surge and Hisako Ichiki/Armor from X-Men show up as well.

    True, particularly for the 'new' members, but it's not like Sunfire and the Silver Samurai don't way predate Big Hero Six (and still show up outside of them, for X-events, on occasion, IIRC). So they might be an option, if not Baymax or Honey Lemon or whomever.

    Yeah, tons of Asian X-peeps, as far back as Jubilee or as recent as Nature Girl or 'Hindsight Lad,' and even adjacent peeps like Yukio or Kwannon that could show up.

    I'd love to see more of the Collective Man, someday, perhaps in a sort of 'Captain America of China' sort of role, regarded as an elder statesman of his neck of the woods (and almost unknown to western culture, who are all about Spider-Man and Thor or whatever).

    It's been suggested that, just as the Titanium Man and Crimson Dynamo evolved into more complex 'national hero' roles than just 'Iron Man villains,' that the Radioactive Man is a hero (and scientist!) working for the Chinese government and no longer seen as just a 'super-villain.' That could be intriguing, since he's a hard, hard-hitter...

    I was wondering how far Marvel could get with using the Big Hero Six characters. Okay, maybe they couldn't use the whole team, but maybe an appearance from Hiro and Baymex?

    As for Sunfire and Silver Samurai, you guys know what my stance is on them appearing in Agents of Atlas .

    Said it before with Collective Man and Radioactive Man, I definitely feel they should be working heavily for the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). Radioactive Man especially would be with the CCP and indeed, be a hero for them. He definitely would still be for the ideals of the Communist Party, but, just like many members today, has had to readjust certain beliefs for the modern world. Yeah, worldwide socialism will come, but only when China first grows and positions itself as an economic superpower. He's probably plotting and scheming with different factions within the CCP to ensure that mainland China and its goals come out on top.

    Just like Sunfire is very nationalistic for Japan, Radioactive Man would be nationalistic for China. Certainly would like to see these two cross paths!

    We found out what happened to the Dynasty that caused the formation of the Ascendants but did we ever find out what happened to the People's Defense Force which had Collective Man & Radioactive man as 2 of it's members? Also the Eight Immortals should still be working for the Chinese government as well. China has a large amount of Heroes as well as villains to work with in Marvel Comics.

    Hopefully now that the Future Avengers appearing in comics maybe we will get The English dubbed version airing in the US. I really enjoyed the show especially the Winter Guard episodes. I want link to any sites but if you search the net you can find the first season of 26 episodes dubbed. I love how they bringing in Asian characters from other media into the mainstream marvel.

    With Avengers Assemble cancelled, there's no excuse. Disney XD has a gap in the schedule.

    I think sun wukong could be a good enemy for Shang chi. Is spam big in Asian countries? And i’d Like to see more of the Asian heroes, like red feather.

    Digging the preview art here. Ha, Wave's abs have me a little jealous!

    As for White Fox, she has also been appearing in the Hotshots miniseries with Domino and Black Widow. Issue #4 gives a little insight to her character. The threat of invasion from North Korea and her patriotism to South Korea are strong motivating factors for her.

    Some other thoughts:

    -

    I was skeptical of the Agents of Atlas' art post Gang. However, looking at this sample from Nico Leon, I'm impressed. Nice little character moment here.

    - After watching a little bit of "Wolf Warrior 2" today, I would really like to see an Agents of Atlas storyline that involved both China and Wakanda. I can envision a story where, just like in the real world, government sponsored Chinese companies are getting involved in African affairs. A Chinese company may be involved with a country like Niganda, which borders Wakanda. Eventually, the company is starting to edge into Wakanda, which doesn't sit too well with Black Panther. Pretty soon, the Ascendant may be called in, and perhaps the Agents of Atlas have to contend with both sides. Basically, it would just be a set up for a Shang-Chi/Black Panther fight .

    In any case, just a thought.

    That's an interesting thought there. Setup for a good old-fashioned superhero-on-superhero fight, but with actual geopolitical subtext and commentary. I could see that being worth the effort.

    White Fox really impressed me in the latest issue. Can’t wait to see what she’ll do in the future.
