Rick Remender Adds More Members to UNCANNY AVENGERS Roster

With so many Avengers and X-Men to choose from, it's no surprised there will now be nine members.

If you've read the first issue of UNCANNY AVENGERS, you know we already have quite the roster. The roster currently consists of Havok, Captain America, Wolverine, Rogue, Thor and Scarlet Witch. It was a little odd that Cap asked Havok to lead this squad despite other leaders such as himself, Wolverine and Rogue being on the team. We also saw some conflict between Rogue and Scarlet Witch.

To make things more complicated, it's been announced that in issue #5, Rick Remender will be adding three more characters to the roster.

Wasp, Wonder Man and Sunfire are coming to the team. We've already seen that apparently Wonder Man has been forgiven for his action against the team in the pages of THE AVENGERS.

It was mentioned that Wolverine and Sunfire have some "business" to resolve. Wonder Man will be a pacifist and P.R. guy for the team. Perhaps we'll see the return of his feelings for Scarlet Witch? Wasp will provide funding for the team so they don't have to rely on "government mandates."

It was also announced that Olivier Coipel will be filling in for John Cassaday on the issue. This all sounds pretty interesting.

Still don't have any characters I care for enough to pick this series up

Posted by JamDamage

I don't know to much about Wonder Man, but I really really liked the Revengers story, and I kind wish he stayed a baddy for a while. Oh well. I don't really like Wasp tho. Neve did. Sunfire being another mutant just makes this book more interesting. I have faith in Remender. Since when do we get Home Depot pop-ups on here as well.

What no Tron Costume for Havok? Denied! LOL!

Wasp!!!! but I don't like this book that much. Too overrated. I can't believe this sold more than 300k.

From what I read , and yes I was one of the 300k, it was purely on potential.

wow......comic book fans are so picky,that it's disgusting.

I mean really,just really.....not everything is going to please you.

Just accept things sometimes,maybe your "favorite character" is something other than you thought,the character wasn't changed,you just thought wrong...

anyway,looks great,who is the guy in fire colors..

Posted by windew

This is rather neat.

Posted by JoseDRiveraTCR7

I also thought Sunfire was underused. Good to see someone try something with him.

Also, I funny it sad and funny that Havok is supposed to be the leader, but every promotional image and cover of UA shows Cap in the middle/focal point while Havok is off to the side.

Posted by Tolliver_Trask

I'm stoked for this! Sunfire is a real wildcard, he could definitely spice things up a bit. I'm also sort of hoping Wonder Man will revert back to his Hollywood movie star personality, complete with red jacket and ionic jet pack!

Its about time Sunfire got used again though last I remember he was paralyzed from the waist down

@Jawshco: why is it that everytime a person has on a black outfit with lines,it's a tron outfit......

just saying,that's like saying every upset hero is batman,or whatevs.

I get that your joking,but others use it in a serious manner.

Posted by Jawshco
@cameron83 : Actually the Tron joke isn't even mine, it's from the X-Factor comic book. Check it out, it's hilarious. The panel where Havok admits his last costume looks like Tron is awesome - which is why he ditched it.

Nightwing in it cool lol

Posted by Veitha

So we have 5 Avengers and 3 X-Men... And this should have been an X/A team? Yeah... Sure

Posted by bunkerbuster05

God I was hoping Wonder-Man would show up soon! I loved the two annuals that focused on him and the Revengers. Glad he's back.

Edited by ArtisticNeedham

I think Cap asked Havoc because he not only wants the public to know that he trusts mutants (like Cyclops' brother) but to also let the Mutant Community know that Cyclops hasn't made it so that mutants are now ordered around by humans (Cap isn't ordering around the X-Men). I think that Cap isn't only a natural leader, but also knows when to stand aside and let others lead. He is a good soldier too, and can follow orders too.

WAIT, when did Wasp return? What? Just out of nowhere! I'm thinking cool Wonder Man is an Avenger again. Then I spot Wasp? Someone can you fill me in? Is there a series I need to pick up now?

And didn't Sunfire loose his legs?

Posted by cuddles666

Man, even the characters look bored! They should've given Remender Storm and Brother Voodoo like he wanted. Grr.

So iffy on this title...

wait, Wasp is back?! since when?!

Posted by Backflip

I don't get it. When Cassaday redesigned the X-Men for Astonishing X-Men, they were arguably some of the best and most iconic redesigns ever.

Now we have these......

Posted by Miss_Garrick

YAY WASP!!! I've missed her! One of my favs!

Having a mixture of Avengers and X-men on this team could be interesting, but I don't know about Wonder Man. He's always been a tiny bit of a crybaby.

Posted by ThanosIsMad

Olivier Coipel should just take over as the regular artist. Marvel should've learned from Astonishing X-Men that Cassaday can't keep up a monthly.

He wasn't paralyzed, Deathstrike hacked off all of his limbs.

Posted by astonishing_arome

Olivier Coipel, Thank God.

Posted by Ferro Vida

Yes, Sunfire is the ultimate example of the best that mutant kind has to offer. The fact that most of this line-up look down their noses at Cyclops is laughable.

Posted by The Mast

Wonder Man is one of my favourite characters and I was wondering what would be happening.

Now I know. Seriously hate these spoilers.

Posted by Perfect 10

last i saw of sunfire rogue took his powers permanently and also he lost his legs back in the rogue ongoing series a few years ago. how in the world is he all of sudden not only repowered but has new legs? they could say the phoenix came back his powers (i guess) but no other depowered mutant (moonstar, jubilee, etc) have regained their powers. that is something they need to clarify. are there just new mutants or did depowered mutants get their powers back? glad to see the wasp back i would have preferred here with the new avengers but yeah girl power! three of my fav characters on the same team (rogue, scarlet witch, and wasp). in the future i would love to see a fun girls night out issue once all the heaviness of "marvel now" has subsided

Oh god Sunfires costume is just has bad as Havok

Agreed. These guys have more or less the same costumes they had when they first appeared in late 60's / early 70's. Time for an update!

What money does Wasp have?

She is a famous clothes designer and Fashion guru. There must be some money in that...

She also inherited millions from her rich scientist dad when she turned 21. See plot summary for Avengers #43.

@Danial79 said:

I've never even heard of Sunfire, so I guess I'll give it a go to see what he's all about... though I found #1 to be pretty average.

You can read about Sunfire's first appearance in the plot summary for X-Men #64.

Wonder Man! looks like all that begging got him a second chance.

Yeah I know right? Wonder Man attacks the avengers directly and goes on Tv to denounce them and makes everyone question their purpose and as soon as he asks for forgiveness which was COMPLETELY out of character he gets back in. Still a hero though he escaped his prison

Cyclops who was working side by side with captain america sometimes gets the cold shoulder and high level of expectation all of a sudden goes dark phoenix and helps to restore the mutant population, But is branded a villain because he escaped his prison.

Nice consistency marvel.

Posted by They Killed Cap!

Caps new suit looks so lame...why does he have Knee pads...he must be getting old.

Posted by Xorion

They are 'Uncanny Avengers: Earth's Worst Costumed Heroes'

Posted by Barubal10

I'm glad that Simon is back! IMO the evil, angry, 'misguided' angle Marvel has been forcing on him was just too... forced.

Posted by SlamAdams

Man, I was really hoping they were going to keep the AoA Sunfire costume. It's a much better design

Posted by nappystr8

I found the initial roster to be very boring. But all three of the additions are great choices. Good to see Wonder Man back on the side of the angels, especially on a team with his old flame Scarlet Witch. Likewise good to see Wasp back in action. The most exciting addition is Sunfire though. He's one of the oldest X-Men, but for some reason he's always ignored. His addition might be enough to convince me to keep reading this book, even though I'm not loving it yet.

Posted by Green ankh

Does Marvel really need Wolverine in a book to sell it? Wilvie and Rogue wreck it foe. I like the addition of Wonder man and Sunfire.

Posted by aaunderoath

I'm happy with the choices to add to the team but I gotta say I was excited for a smaller team so that way none of these characters suffer background character syndrome .. If Remender handles this like he's handling Secret Avengers I'm sure it'll turn out fine, but still

Posted by sparty-dbq

Man, Sunfire came way out of left field. I can't even remember the last time I saw him in anything (Not counting his AoA self in UXF).

Posted by Namor1987

I'm going to enjoy these new additions. I'm glad to see Sunfire back. That costume is a classic. Wonder Man is cool as hell too. I'm still confused how Wasp came back to life

Posted by PrinceIMC

Wasp, Wonder Man, Captain America, Scarlet Witch, Thor....it's kinda like Avengers vol. 3 all over again. Instead of Justice and Firestar you've got Havok and Sunfire.

Posted by Pwok21

Um, so two heroes turned villain have become heroes again?

They could have made a better choices...

@Pwok21 said:

Three really. Wonder Man, Scarlet Witch and Sunfire.

Posted by Pwok21

@PrinceIMC:

Well in recent years at least; Wanda was never a villain, just mentally unstable.

Wonder Man created the Revengers and Sunfire was a marauder last we saw, so I'm curious about their choices.

Posted by Eclipse-32

Certain press releases say this Wasp funding them will cause problems for her, interesting to see how that'll turn out

Posted by Or35ti

Sounds awesome! I just wish they'd be more on top of things and get the books out on time. Maybe Cassidy is just generally slow, I hear Astonishing X-Men suffered massive delays.

Yeah Wonder Man has made a complete turn around again and is trying to do good again so he's going to be forgiven, Wanda was instantly forgiven because they needed her to fight the Phoenix Five....so my bet is within 2 years Cyclops is going to have his redemption and will be leading the Uncanny Avengers.

Posted by Pwok21

@PrinceIMC:

Sounds about right.

Posted by ogg927

I hope they bring back Monica Rambeau. They could use another woman and some diversity.

Posted by Spideycap

Did I miss Janet coming back to life at some point? I've kinda been out of the Marvel loop a bit. Cool new members regardless.

Posted by 80sBaby

For some reason, I really, really HATE this line-up! I think I'd be much happier if Cap, Logan and Thor were replaced. I like those characters but just not on this team.

I couldn't agree more.

It's kind of a shame because I find that while his art is nice, it's not necessarily good for all types of heroes or story lines. Some of the characters on the cover, for example, look really awkward.

Posted by PassionFlower

I still don't love that lineup but I'm happy to see Jan.
