Vance Astro's New Warriors\Initiative Thread

#1 Edited by Vance Astro (91191 posts) - - Show Bio

Yes...I am a huge copycat lol.But I would like to hear people's thoughts on the New Warriors and Initiative and some predictions on what people think there role will be in this huge event were in right now..the Secret Invasion.

Let's start this off with the Return of Vance Astro to the Gaurdians of the Galaxy.I know that's not New Warriors\Inititive stuff but Justice(also Vance Astro) recently rejoined the New Warriors from the Iniative and is the longest living member.

Guardians of the Galaxy #2-Return of Vance Astro not Cap!

Why not? New Warriors is actually a good book and Initiative is just as good.Taskmaster and Ant-Man's back and forth's in Initiative are classic,and the New Warriors are kind of like the X-men with no powers,and most of there problem is trying to deal with that,Tony Stark,and the Stanford Incident.

I want to read them, but since Marvel.com won't let me subscribe its pretty tough. Comics are easy to get a hold of if i can't subscribe.

I can't wait until the new issues of both these comics come out.I'm getting tired of Nighthunter's sh!t though.He's such a little girl lately.Vance should be the leader of the New Warriors.Also I would like to see Rage do more.As for the Initiative,i'm completely satisfied with the team except for Triathlon who just became the new 3-D Man for some reason.He's a horrible character.I hope he gets killed in the Invasion.

I wish Vance had taken Ultra Girl with him...but she didn't want to go.I also like how she's wearing Ms.Marvel's old costume and how Ms.Marvel is mentring so many young female superheroes now.Arana even called her,her mom in one comic lol.

I love JUBES.She is by far the best female member of New Warriors,next to Tempest.

Initiative is one of the best marvel books. I love the usage of old obscure characters. Plus Taskmaster & Irredeemable Ant-Man. They should get a spinoff title, quickly!

I hated NW at first, not because of lack of any Old Warriors, but the mischaracterizations of the characters, but i'm starting to like it now. Can't wait to see them getting their asses kicked by Machinesmith.

I love NW, it's my current favorite (BIG fan of Jubes and Jono). Looks like the old New Warriors will be playing a big part in the series, starting with the Secret Invasion arc, and continuing afterwards.

I completely agree with you.I want to see Justice in action again against Machinesmith.

I read the latest issue of the New Warriors and I must say..sh#t just hit the fan.The old New Warriors and the New New Warriors are about to go at it.Vance thinks Night Thrasher is a skrull and he's pissed that he started a new team without him.This is going to be good.

Cover























































Jubes vs. Skrull
Block knocked off.
Vs.Skrull
The Wondra Stomp.
















The Confrontation
























































Justice vs. Night Thrasher
Could have killed Night Thrasher
















Sh#t hits the fan

I'm with you Vance,these books are great.

Initiative is a good book.I like the new 3D man.

I love Initiative but dropped New Warriors.  I probably shouldn't have though, the Scarlet Spiders are some of my favorite characters and I also like Blackwing and Thrash. I might pick it back up.


I'm interested in what Pym wil do at the Initiative base since he shooed all of the others out so he could be up to......... SHENANIGANS!

SPOILER ALERT
I also read the latest issue of Iniative.Apperently Crusader is a skrull..but he's on our side.He's the skrull slayer lol.

When I first read Initiative I though they were all skrulls.

I care about the story..not the art.As you know for any comics series,the art isn't going to be good in every single issue.

Well I'm not saying..hey look this comic is awesome.I'm just letting people know what happened.I also value the art above storyline but i'm not going to keep myself from reading something because the art sucks.I want to know what happens.

I understand what you're saying.  Like Bendis' artist.  Immonen might not be the best but it tells a good story.  Same for Koi Pham.

to me the New Warriors will always be Night Thrasher, Nova, Namorita, Firestar, Sil, Speedball, Vance, Darkhawk, and Rage. The current team is Generation X with a new name as far as I'm concerned

That's sort of true.I'm assuming that Night Thrasher will somehow convince Vance he's not a skrull and they will be a whole team..New New Warriors and Old New Warriors together.I like some of the new characters especially Jubilee.

I agree with that also.He's a veteran...or maybe they should keep the two teams the way they are but Night Thrasher be the leader of his group and Vance being the leader of his.
