    We have to remember not all these books are sold everywhere and some don't get coverage.

    Marvel wanting to invest in Reptil-well look at him from a merchandise stand point.

    We can start with toys alone-you can't go wrong with dinos.

    Marvel probably sees how well Beast Boy's book sold-it was among the highest pro-orders on Amazon and stays in the 100-pending what new movie or show comes out.
    Maybe, I suppose. Though I wonder how come I'm so in-tuned to many of these characters, then?

    So anyone think some Dinosaur themed villains like Stegron or the Saur Lords should be a part of Reptils rogues gallery? I thought they would work as villains for Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur but that ship has sailed.

    Stegron is my choice but I rather have more variety in who heroes fight.

    Possible. I'd also like one that's original to Reptil, though. Someone who'd be his contemporary in any other regards, so basically a dino-themed teen adversary.

Granted they are slowly bringing back that push, even rezzing Power Pack and Squirrel Girl but I have to as assume Bilas first book is something small scale, gotta work small to go big.
    Well, Blas said he loves Champions. Maybe when Danny Lore is done with the book (I don't know if he's just doing Killer App or is on it long term), he could take over, and add Reptil to the team? It would be interesting to see Humberto interact with Sam and Joaquin.

    That’s what I’m thinking he’d be a great fit for that team..

    I think someone who can turn their body parts into prehistoric plants would make for an interesting adversary.

    A plant or mineral based villain would be an amusing nod towards DCs Animal-Vegetable-Mineral Man.

    One villain could have the properties of many different types of plant life, and be able to generate plant growth out of themself, like grow a massive wooden carapace and assume redwood like heights, or shoot out entangling vines, or toxic thorns, or allergen-inducing pollen or whatever. Much like Reptil himself, the plant-person would have a lot of versatility, with all the different plant options out there.

    The other could just be a big rock monster. Something that Reptil couldn't just tank with dino-attacks, but have to outmaneuver with dino-wings and lure into danger, like how Spider-Man took out Juggernaut (by luring him into a situation where he could trip him into liquid cement or something).

    We could also have a villain that can summon meteors or comets. It would be funny since the hero can turn into dinosaurs.

    Going back to the Avengers Academy series, Reptil was hesitant to be looked at as a 'role model' superhero compared to White Tiger, who confronts him on this. For this upcoming mini series I wonder how his outlook has evolved. pun intended.

    I'm hoping Finesse pops up even if they are exes.

    Ooh! Good memory!

    That's actually a really good "small moment" that could be used to expand on Humberto's characterization. I hope that'll be directly addressed and incorporated into Reptil in this mini, especially since Blas seems to be lining him up to become a kind of Latine/Hispanic face among teen heroes.

    Would it be strange for me to say that I'd be perfectly fine with Reptil and Finesse are never referenced with each other as a couple (ex or otherwise) again?

    I liked Finesse well enough in general. I especially enjoyed her character arc. But I didn't really care that much for the whole romance and implied future parents of each other's child thing Avengers Academy were doing. I dunno. Part of me feels that it felt like they were trying to push a teen-romance angle with Humberto there that he didn't necessarily need to go through (especially a "by-the-numbers" straight teen-romance angle, what with Mettle and Hazmat already covering that angle superbly and with Striker not getting anything romance-wise beyond him coming out as gay in the first place).

    From what I remember of their relationship it felt pretty far from being by-the-numbers just because of how emotionally complex and difficult Finesse was.

    I thought he and Spider-Girl were cute though...

    She does, in a flashback to Avengers Academy. Can't see her getting more than that though, last we saw, she was working with Nadia Van Dyne. Which would mean she should be in New York. This story isn't set in the Big Apple.
