Wolverine brought Doop onto the staff at the Jean Grey School to handle cosmic threats beyond what the other faculty could handle. That said, why in the hell isn't Doop rocking face in Infinity?!? Shouldn't he have made the goons attacking the school take a dirtnap? Shouldn't he be slugging it out with Thanos in orbit?

I'm trying to get caught up on Secret Avengers and I have this one question... Everywhere I've looked, I can't seem to find where Bagalia is located on a map. Heck, I don't even know what continent it's on. Has it been shown yet? What issue and title?
I think he still plans on adding more. Remember they keep saying bigger.
I do like the idea of selecting members to fit the situation, much like Justice League Unlimited did.
Plus don't the Uncanny Avengers and Mighty Avengers count as well? Or were they just speaking specifically of Hickman's book?
No, the Uncanny Avengers don't seem to count. It was 25 specifically for Hickman's book.
I know the current team consists of:
And I know that in the last issue Star Brand, Nightmask, Ex Nihilo, and Abyss joined, but that only brings us up to 22. Originally he had said the roster would hold 25. Do you think that idea got scrapped or do you think he's still planning to do the full 25? If so, who do you think will join and why?
Some people hate the dated late 80s early 90s mallrat nature of her character. Some hate that she lost her fireworks powers. Some hate that she became a vampire. Some hate that she's adopted a child a become a mother now. All are opinions. Most are based on ill-informed ignorance to her character.
Jubilee had lost her teenie-bopper valley girl mentality well before her time on Generation X, however thanks to the 90s cartoon that's how most will forever see her. Others don't realize when she lost her powers, she found herself and finally grew up and became an adult. Most people hate the vampire bit thanks to Twilight/True Blood/Vampire Diaries having ruined the perception of vampires during that time, even though that story was pretty well written. Lastly, most people forget that Jubilee is herself an orphan, taken in by the X-Men (particularly Wolverine) and raised. Jubilee adopting an orphaned baby herself makes conplete sense.
It's stupid really. If you ask me, losing her powers, becoming a upper-class vampire, and adopting a baby are all things that have made me like her more than I previously did.
So I just found out that apparently Rememder's use of the term "M-word" in Uncanny Avengers was highly offensive to some people. Since I missed the boat, what exactly was so upsetting about it? "Mutie" is a negative connotation hate-speech slang term for mutants in the Marvel Universe, and Alex Summers has been called this many times in his life. He doesn't like hearing it, so much so that he didn't even say the full word, just referred to it by its first letter. How in the heck is that offensive? Are mutants real or did I miss something something? Help me understand...
@v_scarlotte_rose: Bruce is making a dark joke referring to the fact that the Intelligencia (specifically the Leader and M.O.D.O.K.) had all gotten the better of them by that point in the story, "proving" themselves smarter. Also, Hank had just made the "eighth" correction earlier, which is why Amadeus just said "eighth" in bolded emphasis right there. He was being sarcastic and Bruce was being sarcastic back. Also, it's assumed Hank thought T'Challa above Cho, as Amadeus was an unknown nobody for the most part who came out of nowhere realatively recently. That said, by T'Challa's own admission to being the 8th smartest, Hank was wrong (which makes sense because he had just recently returned to Earth and had no knowledge of Amadeus' story thus far) and the list Amadeus saw that placed him as seventh was correct.
And yes, Tony has been stated to be the third smartest on more than one occasion. Mighty Avengers #30 DID place Tony above Hank. It wasn't Eternity that said it, it was Hank. This counts every bit as much because there is apparently an established intellect rank that they all know about. Hank would have known he was 4th on the list when he said that to Eternity.
@v_scarlotte_rose: I don't have the issue numbers, no, but if you search Hank Pym along with Intelligencia or Scientist Supreme, you can find the scans on google images. Also, Hank was mistaken about that comment to Amadeus Cho, as he wasn't aware he was already counted among that list. Hank is too arrogantly humble and humbly arrogant for his own good sometimes.
I posted this in another topic. This is Marvel's canon list.
1.) Reed Richards (multiple sources, but seriously... duh...)
2.) Victor von Doom (also multiple sources... and also duh...)
3.) Tony Stark (see above)
4.) Hank Pym (firmly established to be behind these three by a story arc in Mighty Avengers and the Intelligencia story arc)
5.)Bruce Banner (firmly established by the Intelligencia story arc)
6.) Hank McCoy (was listed among the eight smartest during the Intelligencia story arc, but no position was given; determined by process of elimination)
7.) Amadeus Cho (canon established fact)
8.) T'Challa (admitted to this rank personally to Spider-Man)
9.) Otto Octavius (was stated to be just above the Intelligencia in intellect ranking; rejected their offer to join because of it)
10.) The Leader (the Intelligencia's members were next in line on the list after the ones listed above; was stated and shown to be the smartest of the Intelligencia's ranks)
11.) M.O.D.O.K. (was stated to be the second smartest of the Intelligencia's ranks)
12-14.) Wizard, Mad Thinker, and Red Ghost (the remaining Intelligencia members weren't given specific numbers to their ranked positions, but would have filled these ranks)
As for all the "but T'Challa did this" or "the Leader did that" kind of arguements... ANYONE on this list can get the better of anyone else on this list on any given day. Each one is a leading expert in some area of science, so each one can do something better than the others can. This is an overall rank (one that has been established on-page as well). I'm sure it bothers some people because their favorite character isn't ranked higher on the list, but keep in mind that even the world's 30th smartest intellect on Earth would STILL be able to carry on a scientific conversation with these people on their level and even potentially get the better of them. Try not to get offended by established canon, because even the next 20 or so positions on the list still aren't anything to scoff at.
