Holy cow this thread got some serious bumps while notifications were broken! Glad to see so many people are pumped for the relaunched Mighty Avengers title.
I think the development and personality of the character is more important than their color or gender. That being said wasn't there a bit of backlash from Miles Morales because it seemed they made a multi-ethnic Spider-Man simply for the sake of making a big name multi-ethnic hero? I am all for something like this, I think both Black Panther and Luke Cage are great characters, but it should be done with reason rather than just doing it for the appearance of appealing to political correctness. It's all in the writing and delivery.
I'm not sure I understand this concern. If they're truly "great characters", what do you lose by promoting them for any reason?
Also, I have to point out that Miles wasn't the first multi-ethnic, alt-U Spider-Man. (Miguel gets no respect.)
Provided the reason for an all black Avengers was a good one and Bishop wasn't on the team, I'd be down.
lol! Aww, I liked Bishop. Even when he was crazy.
Only if Black Panther was the leader, i'm sorry but Falcons way to lame to be the leader.
I don't think the falcon is the leader. Who is though? Blue Marvel?
Falcon isn't the leader. Cage will be the team leader, and Spectrum (Monica Rambeau) will be the field leader. According to some interviews with Ewing.
I think they were responding to my pitch on that, not the actual pending title. Cool to hear Monica would be leading though! Her recent appearance in the new Captain Marvel reminded me how much I liked that character.
I thought it was going to be Cage, but maybe I just assumed that because of his experience with New Avengers. And because he's who I originally wanted in my pitch to lead. Either way, I'm just glad to see him off hiatus. I wonder if they're going to fast-age his kid to make that seem appropriate?
