    I would say 'magical' origin...but not magic user like Dr Strange.

    Makes sense. Because the origin of the powers of characters like Thor and WW always seemed vague to me

    Yeah, it's a shame Zub's attempt to introduce them seems to have been backpedalled by the subsequent writers.

    Amka was, yeah - but that arrangement is likely no longer intact considering that Viv betrayed Amka by getting her sent to the re-education camp.

    Unfortunately for Sam he will be used here...and his father who is currently a Badoon prisoner will never be rescued. That is the story I want. Sam with the help of the GoTG and Bill rescuing his father. Old Man Alexander can use his gold helmet like the clone of him did.

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure Viv will have to reckon with that at some point in this run.

    That would be a cool arc to see.

    There was a plot that just got dropped in DnA Nova where Garthan Saal (in a black helm) was rescuing Malik Tarcel, maybe they along with Jesse and some others get a Supernova corps going, them being Black ops meant they were hidden.

    Locust(Fernanda) is Mexican so she can also add a non-US POV.

    I don't mind them keeping these five characters as the main focus because I can understand writers have problems handling such a large cast of characters.

    That said, I hope they remain recurring regulars.

    I still think that these five, plus Snowguard, Wasp and Brawn was the best version of this team.

    In other words, Zub's original roster, as Riri and Nadia joined in Waid's last arc and Amka was introduced in Zub's first issue.

    Locust isn't Mexican, she's from San Diego, California. However, Falcon (Joaquin Torres) IS Mexican.

    Correct. And due note that he's spent about half his life in the US, too.

    Yep, I think that roster was when the team was starting to work together nicely and interesting interpersonal relationships started.

    Although I like a lot of the extended cast I felt it affected the dynamic of the team too much and never really worked

    Yes, you are correct.
