    I don't even understand how the hell did the avengers accepted 3 untrained kids into their main roster instead of... captain marvel, OG hulk, hawkguy and plenty of options with more experienced characters... I think people read avengers to read about earth mightiest heroes not more legacy characters than we already have.

    At least from before civil war 2 I can guess what's the whole idea of forming the champions, it's correct to say that all earth heroes acted like a bunch of idiots since CW 2 started and the teen heroes wanted to form a team to make things differently, that's where the whole idea of champions lie, idealistic team that tries to do the right thing (unless kang or red skull comes, down with those bastards). Also they've got a lot to live up to considering the past marvel now flagships, like that failure of uncanny avengers that derived into the trainwreck of axis or ANAD avengers that's selling the same as the lowest selling X book (ANXM, and hopeless isn't even trying)
    Carol Denvers was doing important stuff with Alpha Flight and the Ultimates, plus a third job as member of A-Force. She couldn't waste time with Iron Man's Garage Avengers.

    OG Hulk was depowered and not interested in joining any team.

    Most other Avengers would join Steve Rogers's team rather than Tony Stark's low budget team (Tony has been kinda assholic for a long time and has had clashes with most fellow Avengers... if he doesn't even have money anymore, why would anybody want to join him?).

    Tony Stark's team was made of Avengers who didn't get along with Steve Rogers (Tony and Sam Wilson) plus newbies (Jane Foster, Kamala, Miles and Kid Nova) plus Vision, who has been acting weird lately.

    Looks like Ghost Rider will be joining the team, Alonso mentioned big plans for Reyes when someone asked if a former champion would join.

    Well That would be good. Seems to me that the book needs just a little more tie in to the original. If it were me I'd add Young Bobby, Warren or Jean instead but you can't have everything.

    I don't know why they didn't make Robbie a member from the start. He's just an obvious fit as both a somewhat fan-favorite new teen character like the other and as an organic tie to the previous Champions.

    After that last TA Hulk issue, I'm kind of warming up to see Cho on this team.

    I think after the issue it makes more sense why Amadeus wants to keep distance from the avengers (apart from BP hulk buster)

    No. Tyke is partnering with Viv. That way he won't be involved in triangles or romance(I say while laughing evilly)

    But with the hopeful addition of Robbie Eyes, the Champions will have footholds in:

    -Inhumanity
    -Mutants
    -Robots
    -Mutates
    -Super Science
    -Space
    -Supernatural/Magic

    So...does the team need a badass normal?
    Le Suck it, Dolphin!

    He or someone else will probably join after 1st arc or 2nd arc to bring in New/more readers or boost sales.. I've noticed a few marvel books doing that recently..

Splitting them into two different books will benefit both greatly in my mind.
    it was weird because it seemed like mark waid had his hands tied with what he was allowed to do due to all the solo books involved with The ANAD Avengers cast and might have had to play it super safe as to not step on anyone's toes

    hopefully champions gives mark waid a little more freedom since he doesn't have iron-man captain america(Sam Wilson)And Thor(Jane Foster)to look after

    plus not being a mainline avengers book means he doesn't have to play it too safe and put it on auto-pilot like he did with ANAD Avengers

    Tyke is the closest you'll get to a badass normal, he has no super strength or superseed or super reflexes or regeneration or a mechanical body or a force field, he's the glass canon of the team

    That or add Red Widow, who wil have a back-up story in the post-CWII Ms Marvel book. She actually mesh's well with the team, since she's been working in protecting the homeless people and poor immigrants of NY, whom she's part of.
