    Well, CW 2 and touching the complex still gets buzz after all. Who cares for a Dr Stranger book about some random AU's?

    It seemed they were gearing up to launch abook about the magicians featured in Civil War and in the first issue of Aaron's Doctor Strange.
    Give me a book about Strange, Scarlet Witch, Brother Voodoo, The Wu, Shaman, Magik and Wiccan and I'll be all over it, but so far the line-up of the new comic does nothing for me.
    This.
    Alternate Universe folks are entertaining enough for frequent pepperings but I want LEGIT WICCAN.
    I had high hopes for this Sorcerers title --built up by all the Strange shennanigans trying to save magic and that totally rad team up in Civil War II but... alas...this is so very not my jam.

    I'm worried that Wiccan and Hulkling will end up in that heavily politicized Occupy Avengers book, that's not what I want at all. I always liked those characters for being relatable and easy to connect to, turning them into radical political mouthpieces would ruin that for me.

    What would give you that impression?

    I think it's very unlikely that they'll join that team. The one thing we know about the team members is that none of them have powers. I really doubt they'll depower both of them so they can join a team like this.

    This days plenty of marvel comics have the political agendas of the writers taking priority over the plot or quality. Is there any indication that Wiccan or hulking will be there? And anyways how long have they been missing?

    Oh yeah? Maybe we'll get Prodigy in that one, then. I wouldn't mind seeing Walker have a chance at writing David.

    It's just a guess, since they don't seem to be in anything else. Except for future Wiccan in that Doctor Strange book. But present day Billy and Teddy are absent from all other books and OA only has one character announced (Hawkeye). So I think that unless there's a secret Young Avengers or Wiccan/Hulkling series in the works, OA is where they're likely to end up. Or they're being shelved temporarily. I don't know which is worse.

    They aren't missing.
    They just haven't shown up in any of the upcoming "all new yadda yadda" titles etc, post New Avengers.

    Oh really? I didn't know that about that series. I haven't been paying much attention to Marvel lately so I missed that.

    There's still the question of where Wiccan/Hulkling will show up next though. Even though I'm frustrated with Marvel at the moment, I'd still be the first person to read a new Young Avengers series. But I wouldn't mind if they added new members to the roster and left out characters like MAC and Kate Bishop who are doing just fine elsewhere.

    Save some worry for new Giant Man since Astonishing Ant-Man is ending in October.

    By simply being openly gay characters, and one of the very few gay couples in superhero comics, their mere presence in a book is already considered "political" to some. And let's be real; they're both young, proudly gay millennials in today's society, it's not very likely that they'd be conservative, so if they do show up in socially-liberal book I don't expect it to change much about them or their reputation anyway.

    I hope Ewing keep using him in his titles, even if it's as a supporting character, until someone put him in a official team, since he seems to like writing him. At least he's doing better than new Quasar or Red Widow, who have showed up just once.

    Well most of their stories so far have been focused on their personal lives and relationships, and on superhero stuff. You could say they are politicized characters just because of their existence, but not really beyond that.

    And I'm a young queer millennial as well and I'd rather read about Billy and Teddys crime fighting adventures and relationships than see them delivering radical political commentary. Modern politics are really ugly and cynical, it's not a situation I want to see those characters in.
