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.

What happened? When did Sunfire stop looking like his AoA self and being a bad guy?

Posted by G-Man

@Dernman: Guess we'll find out.

Posted by Cavemold

Thats a decent cover but i don't understand why its taking so long for cassidy to draw these issues. This isn't a complex cover at all. Will issue 5 come out on time?

Posted by Mrfuzzynutz

Nice, its the Avengers plus 3 X-men lol

Not exactly the mix I had hoped, however I do like Havok, Wonder Man and Sunfire being in the mix

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

Posted by Sleepbutnodream15

This makes me less excited for things to come. I hate Wonder Man! Seriously? His powers are so lame and generic. And I really like Sunfire, but this costume sucks. His AoA costume was awesome. The team was perfect before...sigh. But, Rick always knowns what he's doing.

Posted by Nova`Prime`

The addition of Sunfire is cool, but I would have liked it more if they brought Firestar back into the Avengers fold.

Posted by DJ1107

Sunfire's back. FINALLY!!

Posted by Sleepbutnodream15

Also, I have a feeling that artists are slowly and subtly gonna stop using the new Captain America design and go back to that out-dated chain mail looking thing. C'mon Cassady!

Posted by HexThis

I'm excited that Cap, Wanda, and Wasp are back together again! It's like it's the 60's again!

Posted by RalfvdH

Coipel on this issue and in combination with Rick Remender ...:) SOLD!! At least for this issue.... Just kinda hope they will change the costume design of Sunfire a bit....

Edited by SolthesunGod

Shouldn't Marvel have held off releasing this info since the second issue still hasn't come out? It basically spoilers for issue 5 too early.

Posted by SmashBrawler

Ah, yes. It's been a while since I last saw Sunfire... and he's still wearing the head of a roadkilled cat fish as a mask. Some things never change.

Posted by Mr. Kamikaze

Posted by LordRequiem

Why have they changed Havok's costume to that stupid one? Wonder Man's back though!!!!!!!

Posted by StMichalofWilson

Wonder Man, Wasp, and Sunfire? Cool!

not digging sunfire look i already miss the aoa look but i will gave it a read

Posted by chalkshark

I support any decision that puts Sunfire into a regular monthly title. That cat's been around since the 70's & is still one of the most underutilized of all Marvel's characters. Wonderman is redundant in the same team with Thor. He's clearly only on hand to serve as a romantic foil for the Scarlet Witch, a relationship I never much cared for. Happy to see the Wasp find purchase with this team. I'd like to see Quicksilver & Banshee on this roster.

Yeah... I know Banshee's dead. It's comics. One line of type brings him back.

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

Have you given a try. Aside from some problems I have with the art the book is great. The story is really compelling and the inclusion of some "secondary" mutants like Havok and Sunfire writes as something really interesting.

This makes me want to keep reading even more... but I do agree with you. Some of those costume designs NEED to change. Like Rogue's, Havok's and now Sunfire's. (I do like Wanda's though.)

Posted by UltraBiel

I hate this book so much. The story feels so generic and obvious. Too bad I'm too much of a Rogue fan so I can't drop this book. To make things worst, Wasp is in the team, I can't miss it, even though I wanted to.

Posted by velvetmeds

I don't understand. Two mentions of "i hate this book" but there's only been one issue. How can anyone hate it so soon?

Posted by Danial79

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.

Posted by Gambit1024

Cool characters, but I won't be picking this series up. I just wasn't into that first issue.

Posted by Solarflare32

I thought sunfire was sinisters bitch now

Posted by matt_cable

SO many winged/flared helmets and masks!

Posted by butters911

Im so glad the Wasp will be in a title! Now if there could only be a permanent title for Hank....

But isn't her money gone because she technically died

Posted by John Valentine

What the f%&k.

Wonder Man's been pardoned? Wanda's been pardoned? Yet Cyclops is the most wanted man on the planet? BULLSH!T.

Also, Sunfire tried to kill the X-Men last time we saw him. Ridiculous.

Sweet.

Who says her clothing line stopped?

Posted by Sobe Cin

@chalkshark: See the above post regarding Wasp. Spoilers abound.

Posted by GothamRed

So does this mean wonderman's not crazy anymore?

Posted by Cap10nate

So Cap is back in his old uniform again. I guess they aren't going for consistency in Marvel Now since this has to be his 6th uniform in the Now teasers, issues, and covers.

Posted by HushoftheWind

So far, Cap's best costume is the one in his own book in the marvel now. this look like a poor man version of that

Posted by dreamfall31

Bummed it got delayed two weeks, but I am lookin forward to seeing what happens!

Posted by RedheadedAtrocitus

Makes me immensely more interested in the series now...

Posted by Vincie_Pooh

yeah!? So Wasp never did die they say. Sweet they got some power house players on the team. I love that there bringing in Wonder Man. I hope Simon won't go crazy. He's a good character. And for Sunfire, great choice! Wish he can look like his Age of Apocalypse outfit... but then he did look like that in the main stream when he was a horse men. Hey Rick Remender who else you gonna put on the team? I wanna see She-Hulk or Kitty pride on this team. Love this news.

Posted by Matchstick

...you had me at Sunfire.

Posted by zackattack529

Sorry i am not a fan of that art.

I think Id much rather go with Hickman's writing and Openas Art style.

Posted by VampireSelektor

Why is the leader of the team so far back in the artwork?
