    She's finally on the Avengers after waiting almost a decade since Avengers Forever with the classic excuse: "We can't use her, there are plans." Plans that were scrapped right afterwards leading to: "I don't know how to use her." Now, she's back! Go Melissa!

    I love Melissa.

    It took a long time coming (since being foreshadowed in Avengers Forever in '98), but she's finally going to be an Avenger!

    Melissa has one of the best story arcs in the Marvel Universe, being rescued from being one of the jobbiest of jobber villains (Screaming Mimi!), to the most innately heroic of the original Thunderbolts (other than Jolt, obviously, who didn't start out as a super-villain!).

    "Screaming her way onto the scene"---how's that for a sub title?

    I absolutely love Melissa. She's easily in my top 5 favorite Marvel female characters. From her early days on the Thunderbolts to now, she has been awesome. I would support a solo book by her

    I am extremely excited that Mel has finally made it onto an Avengers team, hopefully this will lead to her being on THE Avenger team before too long! (I just wish her team had a different artist...not quite a fan...)

    Adore Songbird; one of my ten favourite Marvel characters (always has been). Soooooo EXCITED for her joining the Avengers; never thought that day would come I hope Ewing mentions her past mentoring by Hawkeye.

    TAG-LINE: nobody puts Mimi in the corner?
    "We are Shakespeare. We are Michelangelo. We are Tchaikovsky. We are Turing. We are Mercury. We are Wilde. We are Lincoln, Lorca, Leonardo da Vinci. We are Alexander the Great. We are Fredrick the Great. We are Rustin. We are Addams. We are Marsha! Marsha Marsha Marsha! We so generous, we DeGeneres. We are Ziggy Stardust hooked to the silver screen. Controversially we are Malcolm X. We are Plato. We are Aristotle. We are RuPaul, god dammit! And yes, we are Woolf."

    Random tagline options;

    Make some noise,

    Shout it out,

    Screaming for vengeance, (probably not as appropriate for Melissa, she's not a 'vengeance' sort of person)

    I wonder if she might help Abe/Mach-VII get involved with Sunspot's Avengers considering their history and that he's also one of the few Thunderbolts success stories?

    Be nice to see them together again .
