    OMG! One of my all-time favorite members of the Avengers! Hopefully, Simon gets to strut his stuff in the new year!

    The majority won't agree, but I LOVE Simon's original costume (Avengers, Vol.1 #9):





    Busiek & Perez then updated Simon which was radically cool (Avengers, Vol.3 #3):





    And no matter what, I'll always treasure the friendship between Simon & Hank...

    He's one of my favourite Avengers as well! I'd love to see Wondy get a more active role this year. At least he's already getting his first cameo of 2021 this week--he's in the First Looks previews of MODOK: HEAD GAMES #2!

    I've never really been a fan of any of Simon's costumes that have had green in them.

    I think my favourite of his costumes was the black-and-red costume that George Perez designed for him in AVENGERS vol.3. It was a very nice update on his classic look from the WCA days and his solo series.

    Absolutely -- those two bring out the best in each other. Sadly, I'm not sure how well their friendship would endure at the moment, with the darker sides of Hank that have come to the forefront in recent years. On the other hand, maybe spending some time with his old friend would be just what Hank would need to get back in touch with the man he used to be.

    I love his original costume as well. Classic Kirby goodness! I'm in the minority here, but I also loved the Perez "Christmas tree" costume lol he was wearing in Avengers #161.

    Just saw the tread from Kurt Busiek, he seems that his favourite Avengers has also including Wonder Man on the list.

    Big fan, but I do prefer his first two outfits (the original and the one from 162 designed by Perez -- not the horrible version by Al Milgrom shown above). Red and green aren't traditional combos for superheroes, but Simon was never a conventional super-hero. I thought the later outfits just made him seem less special. A year or so aga, someone posted images of the first outfit with a black and red color scheme. I'd be okay with that. The safari jacket and the sleeveless body stocking were just so dull.

    Where is Simon these days? Is he appearing regularly anywhere? What does his current costume look like?

    His current outfit is the one in the original post's 2nd image. He hasn't appeared regularly anywhere since the UNCANNY AVENGERS series ended, but he has a cameo in this week's issue of MODOK: HEAD GAMES.

    Not yet but I’d love to see that conversation! Last they spoke on their friendship, Simon called Beast dangerous for his he’s been acting (Illuminati, Timeline/O5 problems, etc). They agreed to still care for each other but have different views
