Mighty White Tiger

#1 Edited by FuriousWeasel (94 posts) - - Show Bio

Does anyone know why the teenage White Tiger and has been included in the new Mighty Avengers team? Surely either of the two previous White Tiger's (Kevin 'Kasper ' Kole and Angela Del Toro) would make far more sense, not only are they IMHO more interesting characters they have actual experience both in law enforcement and costumed adventuring. (And don't even get me started on the inclusion of the teenage Power Man either)

@mdamasco: That's my point, so were the previous two White Tiger's.

I really miss Angela Del Toro as White Tiger. Her and Black Tarantula made for a great supporting cast during Brubaker's run on Daredevil.

ALL white tigers have been PoC if I'm not mistaken

She adds youth to the team. The new Powerman is there too. There are alot of kids/young characters in the Xmen mythos not as many in the Avengers side.

I agree. I liked her in Avengers Academy, for the little bit I got to see her.

THIS! I was wondering about why Spidey and a second Power Man are on this team as well. I didn't make sense to me until I watch a little Ultimate Spider-Man on Netflix this morning. So obviously Marvel is trying to reach younger demographic with the cartoon audience and also reach out to minority readers in general. I'm going to check it out, but I'm super skeptical of Land being the artist.

She was my favorite in that mantle too, but they prefer her as a teen hero I guess.
