Fear Itself: The Home Front #6

I don't think they'll stay together after Fear Itself.

No.

I like this idea. I think creating a next generation of heroes might help to actually make the storylines evolve rather than stagnate.

I dislike the roster. I think these guys need to just grow up and start going to the adult teams (these guys primarily being X-23, Amadeus Cho, and Protege)

why is that?

I SOOO hope they don't stay together...  Given how badly they interact at the beginning...
 
Thunderstrike is just pissed off, paranoid, blaming everyone else instead of actually trying to solve the problem.
 
The girls falling back on the, "Typical alpha-boy attitude" insult rather than realizing the boys are just being asshats...
 
The group dynamics/interactions just aren't that interesting...  It COULD be with the right writer.  But if what we've seen so far is any indication, it'll be a horrible group.

i do see what your saying. but, i don't think its really fair to say that after one issue. i kinda wanna see where they're going with it.
besides their interactions were kinda hilarious.

You're right in that we can't really say how a series with this group would work based on one issue...  I didn't care for Generation Hope until around issue #7...
 
Truthfully, it depends entirely on the writer.  a good writer could take ANY characters and make an interesting series out of it...  And they're are some good characters there.  I actually like the idea of Amadeus Cho (leading) a group with X-23 and Spider-girl.  I don't care for Thunder Strike (I did read his mini-series) or power kid...  Nonetheless, if the writers did a good job it could be an excellent series...  But the first story simply sucks pond water so far...

it was a little slow @ first. but who were those villains @ the end? they kinda looked badass.

No idea.  But it has something to do with Fear Itself...
 
It was more than the story being slow that bothered me...  It seems writers just HAVE to have good guys fight each other when they're forced together in a situation.  As if it's some kind of rule... "Oh hey, we're all good guys but stunned to be together.  Let's fight rather than remember that we're all good guys..."

*groan*

I'm underwhelmed.

I really really really want to like Thunderstrike. So tell me why do they have to make it sooo hard on me.

#20 Posted by Jnr6Lil (7708 posts) - - Show Bio

Teen Superheroes are getting old, They're getting repetitive.

#21 Posted by council elite (506 posts) - - Show Bio
@PowerHerc: why is that? i think a team lead by amadeus has alot of potential.
#22 Posted by PowerHerc (84340 posts) - - Show Bio

@council elite: This line-up just doesn't look that great to me. Who knows, though; maybe it'll do really well. It just doesn't appeal to me from this little bit.

#23 Posted by council elite (506 posts) - - Show Bio
@PowerHerc: ya, i know what you mean. i really like amadeus & x-23, but i'm completely unfamiliar with all the other characters. i'm just glad to see Fred Van Lente writing cho again.
#24 Posted by PowerHerc (84340 posts) - - Show Bio

@council elite: Van Lente writing Cho is a good thing, I agree.

Is that prodigy? And who's the grifter look-alike?

That's not Prodigy, that's new Power Man. And "Grifter look-alike" is Thunderstrike (the son of the original Thunderstrike).

I do miss Amadeus Cho.

Not really interesting, but thanks.

I dont think it will make it past the mini's, for one because theirs a few other young teams that would push more issues, like Young Avengers (which this appears to be a version of sorts of that namesake), Young Masters, and Runaways to name just a few. The appearance seemed more or less to be promoting the individual characters and their books, like say trying to sell the new Power Man to X-23 fans for instance. So far I've only seen the first story, which I didn't think was very good as the entire thing was much of these characters meeting each other with no real substance. Hopefully the latter stories will bring more to the table.

Cho leading a tam would be cool. This team? No.

No. They share one important trait - all of them had connections with one of the original Avengers.
