fo sho

Taskmaster,Constrictor, and Griffin have been in need of a serious push. I think really great looks and powers, they should be given more.

Still most underrated and poorly Written Wreckin Crew....

Seems like a pretty random grouping. Could definitely do without Pink Pearl and Lady Stiltman. Carrion seems like an odd choice. Did Marvel run out of A, B and C list villians? I don't think there has been a good Masters of Evil group since Zemo led the siege on Avengers Mansion. I'll withhold final judgement until reading, but my first impression is that this is a throwaway group. Maybe the MoE needs to go back to a smaller roster.

What happened to the dAys when the MOE were A formidable team reflecting the Avengers roster?

#20 Posted by ExtraLarge (243 posts) - - Show Bio

One can only hope that many of these are included for the purpose of disposing of them.

Thunderbolts were indeed awesome, but I didn't include them since technically they weren't the MoE anymore.

My mistake. I forgot that it was a Serpent Crown. But looks similar to Nevermind.

Squid is number 11. I know diffrent color, but i think it was a mistake.

See Amazing Spider-Man #47 cover. Looks similar.

5. ?

Ringer - guy on the platform. Diablo - guy between Princess Python's Python and Python's Python.

Black Talon - Avengers enemy, Lethal Legion

Punisher didn't kill him?

Torpedo? Blackwing?

Squid. He have a tentacles.

18. Thundra?

19. ?

Lascivious and Letha.

Remender loves him some Z-List villains. Still rooting for him to dig up Spidercide.

I love this.

I will never be impressed by quantity over quality, yet another reason not to read the Not-So-Secret-Avengers

I wouldn't count these guys out yet, at all. Some of these guys range from B-Z list, but that doesn't make them any less deadly, especially in this quantity. Besides, it's great to see villains that haven't appeared in a while.

Obscure doesn't necessarily mean weak. Some of these villains might actually pose a threat. And it seems they are using the same strategy Zemo used when he stormed the mansion..."overwhelm them with numbers".

#29 Posted by TDK_1997 (14896 posts) - - Show Bio

They look like a bunch of losers except Taskmaster and I hope Remender will do something good with them.
