Hey, at least they didn't use D-Man
This is one of the worst teams I have ever seen. Apart from the Blue Marvel and whoever the Spider is, how can any of the rest protect from earth level threats in the Avengers' absence. There's only one heavy hitter, they're screwed.
Ummm... No. There's actually three heavy hitters. Blue Marvel, She-Hulk, and Superior Spider-Man (I wonder... will we ever be able to reffer to him as just "Spider-Man" or "Peter" without qualifying it with "Superior" or "Otto/Ock"?).
Blue Marvel could backhand Hyperion and walk away like a boss. Lord knows he already knocked Sentry the #$%& out! And that was his first showing! Blue Marvel makes everyone else on this team redundant by himself. He's like Superman. Only badass. And black. If ANYONE comes knocking on earth's door while the other heroes are off fighting Thanos, Adam's been keeping his pimp-hand strong just for them.
She-Hulk's gotten a massive strength boost in recent years as the more Jennifer works out in her base state, She-Hulk exponentially increases in strength. She-Hulk can lift Thing's limit with one hand and beat Hercules in arm wrestling. If you're telling me someone who can easily lift over 100 tons isn't a heavy hitter, congratulations on being completely oblivious to what "heavy hitter" means.
Spider-Man now has the intellect of Otto Octavius. This is the man who took down the Avengers in Ends of the World with his prep and intellect. He's been hinted as being the 9th smartest man in the world. His spider-bots and other tech have made him a crime-fighting force to be reckoned with in ways that make veteran heroes look bad. He's Spider-Man with near-Batman intellect. That makes him a heavy hitter by default. Get over it.
I literally don't know who half of this team is.

I was excited about this untill I read who the artist is...Now...not so much ...
For pornfaces I'll go to tumblr ;)
Okay, I'm excited for Blue Marvel, She-Hulk, Monica Rambeau, Luke Cage, and the new Power Man. I'm curious to see who's donning the Ronin guise.
Greg Land has me significantly less excited about the book though. I also don't like that BM is wearing his mask. I thought the point of him not wearing his mask at the end of his mini was to show that he no longer has to hide who he really is.
@mangakid1995: Spider-Man is there for sales and I assume this'll be the only Avengers title he'll be in, since the reason Cage could pick him up is SpOck got kicked out of the official team.
Makes me think New Avengers should have been Avengers: Illuminati and this new book should be NA
@nappystr8: Yea I agree with all of that. I was actually agreeing with what you wrote but wanted to be fair to DC. Their methods were horrible but they attempted or at least putted on this front like they cared. I read your other post too, and I mos def agree about the part about Marvel doing race waaaay better than DC.
Stewart will be the titular hero of Corps going forward, which is why I listed him. Even though its painfully obvious that they only made that decision because of the bad publicity that they were getting from trying to axe him off. DC has PoC books but, they aren't characters who can even sustain a solo run. That's all I was saying.
Yeah, I figured you were just taking a bit of devil's advocate approach. I'm just not one to cut them much slack.
I think Luke will lead seeing as He is the most senior member of the Avengers and having led the team before.
You're forgetting the part where he lead the team poorly. So poorly he didn't even know he was the leader, so Ms.Marvel\Hawkeye took over. Also She-Hulk would be the most senior member of the Avengers on the team, not Cage.
Looks like there's a new teaser showing full(?) team. Is that Ronin? It's not mentioned in the solicit.
Also, that Blue Marvel "hooded justice" redesign is rad.
LOL this is ALMOST the BLACK Avengers. Who is the Ronin though? The last person to use the name "Ronin" was Red Guardian and he's a bad guy. Here's hoping they brought Echo back from the dead.
@scumdestroy: Oh shi... Photon too?!? Ronin and Falcon are kinda pointless amidst this team. Seriously, what can they add that isn't already there? But Photon? This very well might be one of the greatest Avengers lineups EVER!!!
I would assume that Falcon is on the team because he's going to be appearing in Captain America and most likely Avengers as well. They need to at least pretend he's worth a crap.
@nappystr8: DC tries to do books with other races. Just most time no ones buys it. Honestly just nothing at Marvel even remotely interests me. I grew up on the cartoons: Spider-Man, X-Men, & Batman. I like a lot of Marvel characters, but just all is kinda lame. I am about to be done with DC also & maybe comics in general. At this point I think I can write better stuff then most of these people.
i think i understand it all now!. theres 6 spots left on the Avengers Army. instead of kicking Superior Spiderman off the team, he will retain his roster spot so he can be watched. Luke Cage, She-Hulk, Blue Marvel, White Tiger, and Powerman will all join the Avengers squad with Starbrand becoming the 24th member when he gets his sh*t together.
THAT IS ALL!
@br_havoc: True story... Avengers Arena is where good ideas that writers aren't creative enough to use go to die. Honestly, I was more pissed about the destruction of Juston's Sentinel than I was any of the other kids, because that was an idea with a lot of potential.
@vance_astro: yes but she never led an avengers team to my knowledge.
also cage led the thunderbolts and is the closest to a Captain America type person in power set.
I think he is leading this team but Cage has never been that good of a leader. Blue Marvel & Monica Rambeau taking orders from him doesn't even make sense and he's not the closest in powerset to Cap. He got his powers from the SSS like Cap did but their powers are completely different. White Tiger or Ronin would be closer to Cap in powerset. It wasn't Cap's powers that mad him the best leader the Avengers had ever seen it was his tactical mind and his faith.
@vance_astro: It's been announced that Cage is just getting the team together. Monica, now called Spectrum, is leading the team.
Now that makes more sense. Any word on who the new Ronin is? And is the really "Superior-Spider-Man" on the team? Looks like Scarlet Spider....
all the members are announced so we need a new article about the full team and to show off the covers that have been revealed! Photon (monica rambeau) and Falcon are also on the team. really happy to see marvel doing something with monica and just wow this feels like something i would see from milestone comics. excited!!
