    I kind of feel that the creative team had maybe hoped it would go beyond its 10 issue run, to me the final 2 or 3 issues seemed rushed and condensed, likely a result of being a tie in to War Of The Realms. Just felt like its own narrative arc broke down in order to provide quick resolution to a couple of threads developed in the main event titles.

I would go to the magazine rack and take it to the break room I know the character story line was pretty much a rip off of early Spiderman comics. Billy Yuma being bullied at school. But his bully loved his super hero alter ego.

    The cover for my favorite issue. It told the story of J2 one on one fight with The Hulk when The next Avengers fought the original Defenders.

    I think his name was Zane Yama, but it's been a long time.

    Make it a compliment to Champions.

    Sounds good as it would get a lot of kids out of limbo, but it's not the best time for that right now - it would look like a rip off of DC's Teen Titans Academy.

    Honestly, I love finding the hidden gems that Marvel has produced and forgotten over the years. Off the top of my head, here are some series I wish had lasted longer:

    Dr. Voodoo
    CB & MI:13
    Livewires
    Bishop: the Last X-Man
    Weirdworld
    Craptacular B-Sides
    Avengers: the Initiative
    Agents of Atlas (original team)
    Agents of Wakanda

    -Pav, who couldn't believe when AoW used the Livewires...
    Oh man Avengers: The Initiative was so great!

    I am truly shocked that no one has mentioned THE CREW!! That was such a good series with a fascinating cast, taken before its time (and never really given a chance)

    To clarify, that's the original 7 issues by Priest (featuring Rhodey, Junta, Josiah X and Kasper Cole) not the more recent second attempt by Coates that didn't really grasp the feel/flavour of Priest's series IMHO

    The original Nightmask, Keith Remsen.

    I'd like to see something all new.

    These 2 stories were strangely similar....but I liked them both.

    Your right. Went back to fix it. My bad.
    Favorite teams. Alpha Flight, Avengers, Fantastic Four, West Coast Avengers, Justice Society of America, Legion of Superheroes.

    This book was perfect, and renewed my faith in Robinson (although his Wonder Woman run quickly squashed that faith again). I don't recall if Scarlet Witch was canceled, or if it ended because Robinson was done, but either way I wanted more.

    This book should've lasted a lot longer. They'd only recently found a new direction that was full of potential for Simon, but no... he got shunted off to a gimmick driven title and was dead before we knew it.

    The entire MC2 line died way too soon. There were some great characters there and a lot of fun stories.

    Another book I enjoyed that died way too soon...



    Ghost Rider 2099. Even for 2099 books, the title never really felt like it got the respect it deserved.

    You're right. Mad at myself for forgetting it.

    Only seven issues, and pretty much all setup. I would've loved to have seen what Priest had in mind for further stories.

    Junta, Kasper Cole, and Josiah X are all characters I immediately found intriguing, and I hope future writers continue to use them. They all have such potential.
