    I was very excited when the book was announced, but with each announcement my excitement has dropped tenfold. I may pick it up in back issue bins...

    I really liked the version of the team made up of former mutants.

    I came here to get an idea if any of this was serious. Now that it's confirmed I honestly figure that Marvel is just culture trolling and that this new team is being written to be cannon fodder for later on in the plot. I refuse to believe that creatively a paid professional comic writer comes up with such flimsy, trash @$$ characters and wants us to take them serious.

    They were made the scapegoat for Civil War and never recovered.

    Hazmat's currently in Captain Marvel, Mettle has never been resurrected after his death in Avengers Arena, and Rayshaun SHOULD be with the Champions, though he did no-show the Outlawed one-shot.

    Heh, Gravity and Anya were on a team together before, the Young Allies, and Anya and Suzy are both former proteges of Carol Danvers, so those three should work well together.

    They’ve lost Firestar to Krakoa, Namorita’s MIA, Nova’s in space, and Speedball’s not ready to rejoin.

    The guys set out to build a new more powerful team and redeem the New Warriors name.

    They end up recruiting Gravity, Ahura Boltagon, Singularity, Victor Mancha, Hazmat, Delilah Dearborn, Alpha and Powerman III.
    I went into more detail on the whys and all that, but really, it still beats what i’m seeing coming up w. this new book.
    Power Man III? You mean Victor Alvarez - Atlas and Luke Cage being the other two? He's a Champion. Victor Mancha's with the Runaways, and Singularity just got used in Captain Marvel.

    Thunderstrike isn't forgotten - he was in Asgardians of the Galaxy last year.

    And then shuffled off right after.

    Pretty much this, and now they're helping CRADLE enforce the new law against superheroes under the age of 21, which is even worse, because that makes the New Warriors a bunch of turncoats, at least in my opinion.

    You know what? I want to see what Nova thinks. I can't imagine Rich being pleased about this, considering Sam's impacted by this.

    And he was pretty pissed off at everyone in the aftermath of the original Civil War, fighting over a stupid law on Earth while real life-and-death stakes were happening in outer space. I could see a callback to that should he get the chance to weigh in on what his old friends are doing.

    Trailblazer seems cool but reminds me of Jinny Hex w her Magic box.

    That's right, he missed Civil War because of Annihilation.

    Yeah, I meant Victor.
    And characters doing other things don’t preclude them from doing something new.
    Part of my build dealt w. Justice & Night Thrasher approaching these individuals and why they’d accept. I fully intended for feathers to be ruffled by this recruitment drive.
    One plot in particular would concern why Singularity would be on earth to begin with, and it’d lead to a space adventure within the first year of the (hypothetical) book for the fledgling team, where they would of course, meet up w. Nova.
    I thought this out pretty thoroughly, as this has always been one of my favorite teams.

    And it was for the better. I still remember his parting shot at Iron Man: "What have you done?"
