I'm a huge Shang-Chi fan and respect everyone else (though I'm a little frustrated with what was done to Amadeus. He's either the 7th smartest guy in the MU or Totally Awesome Hulk. Not this half way, in between Brawn such and such). Still, are Silk, Jimmy Woo, these new characters, are they enough to get me to read? Part of me doesn't know.

    BUT.....y'know what, part of me is excited. I find it interesting that Marvel's Asian-American (and American created) Asian charaters will be teaming up with their more recent Asian created Asian characters. There's a lot of symbolism there. Asian-Americans meeting Asians or Asian-Americans visiting Asia, that makes for some interesting culture clashes. I wonder how the mainland Chinese characters would react to Shang-Chi. How would White Fox react to Amadeus and Cindy? I wonder what it would be like for Jimmy Woo, Silk, or Amadeus to revisit their ancestors' homelands. I wonder how these homelands would react to them. And truth be told, I really liked Greg Pak's first story featuring The Protectors. It felt good to see these characters front and center. It was awesome Pak reveal new layers to these characters (for instance, didn't know that Shang Chi loved karaoke or was such a terrific battle strategist).

    Yeah, so the more I talk about it, the more excited I am. Count me in, let's see what happens with these Agents of Atlas!
    During Monsters Unleashed, White Fox coopertaed with Amadeus Cho, so I think she would get along with them.

    I'm honestly excited for this mini series, will be one of the few book I'll pick up from the event (as I'll skip the main story), especially with Luna Snow and Crescent introduction to the mainstream.

    By the way, I would imagine that Domino: Hotshots is the reason White Fox isn't here.

    While I wish the group had a better name...I’m still very interested in this! It’s awesome that most of the members of the team are original characters who aren’t tokinedize/hand-me-downs from older characters. That alone has me interested.

    Its also cool to see some of the Future Flight characters make their way into the main MU. Fingers crossed that those characters in particular wont be hollow shells due to the original source and/or future MCU plans for expaning international markets.

    Can Marvel even use the name "The Protectors" on the cover? Another company was using it back in the 90's I believe.

    This looks interesting. I only know a few of the characters here but I do look forward to learning about the newer characters. I wonder if Cho will remain a member of the Champions while also being a member of this team.

    This is just a four issue mini, so there's no reason for Champions to be affected. And in fact, Kamala and Amadeus have been on both teams the whole time. The Protectors just aren't as active.

    Malibu. Which Marvel owns. So yes, they actually CAN use the name.

    Cool to see them incorporating the Future Fight originals even if we'll probably never see them again after this.

    They had me with this up until they said "Brawn" was leading them. Probably should've just called him Cho...

    Hey, somebody remembered Silk. That's more then any of the Spider-Man titles have.

    Would make a good kids cartoon...but not the kind of thing I think they're aiming at for the Hulu shows.
    Yeah, I think that's Super Radiant Friend who was introduced in the All New Invaders. She's the grand daughter of Golden Girl, one of the WW II Invaders. Her powers are light based and she's also one of Japan's top performers.

    That's not Radiance, it's Aero. A Chinese heroine introduced last year. This will be her first US appearance. There's nobody Japanese here, which makes sense, as Korea (both North and South) hates them, because Japan conquered them in 1910 and they only got freed in 1945. Half of this team is Korean.

    I like the idea of a higher profile Asian team, but Agents of the Atlas without many of the Atlas characters feels wrong. i think the two teams should have different names so they could coexist.

    I like the idea, but wish the first promo art was a little more stylish versus Hello Look At This Random Assortment of Characters.

    Jimmy Woo re-using the name is kind of cool though.
