I'd have my kid put up posters of Hawkeye on his wall before that tool Cyclops any day!

ha! If wolverine is mentoring there is no reason why Barton cant.

In many ways this quote sums up many of my thoughts on the matter.

Granted Clint isn't your typical teacher, but having him mentoring will be interesting. See, one of the defining facts about Clint's personal history is that each and every father figure/mentor/role model he ever had screwed up sooner or later. Just for the sake of example: his father was an abusive prick, the Swordsman and Trickshot turned out to be criminals, his big brother recently became a criminal too. SO Clint has plenty of expereince about bad mentors, which might be an advantage.

Now, I'm not saying that his character and behaviour aren't an issue. He's sarcastic, hot-headed, anti-authoritarian (even when he's in charge) and tend to think with his guts (to be polite). Still, beyond all of this he knows how much a bad teacher can screw up your life, so I think he will work really hard to prevent himself from repeating hte same errors he was once subjected to.

Why, Michael Bay?! Why can't you leave my childhood alone?!!!

Same here.

Mr Bay already have the undying enemity of the TF fandom thanks to Transformers 2 & 3. Now this!

My big question is: when are they're going to screw Thundercats making them mutants?

Dude, don't give Bay any thoughts about Thundercats. At least one franchise must remain safe the destroyer of childhoods.

DOH! You're right, I have to shut up.

I didn't know that ninja weapons caused enough explosions to validate Michael Bay's attention.

Just replace nunchucks with linked sticks of dynamite.

Quicksilver might be another factor in the equation. He was an Avenger and a member of the old X-Factor, making him linked to both team. He also has two extra layers of problems: first, he's nototrious for being overprotective of his sister; second, he still has something of a guilt complex for trying to use the Terrigen Mists to re-empower some mutants after the M-Day.

About Scarlet being a candidate for the Phoenix Force. Well, she isn't a telepath, but she has some measure of mental powers due to the mystic training.

@ChaosIsBeauty: Ras al Ghul and Phantom Stranger should meet.

Who said that they didn't already.

They are both immortals and with tons of untold background.

I would love to see a finished version, but so far I like this look a lot. It pays enough homage to the classic version to be recognizable, but looks tough at the same time. Even if some of the details might not be really "combat efficient" (especially the boots).

As far as I'm concerned this is one of the best concepts fo WW I've ever seen.

Secrte Six aside, one my favourite comic books was Mark Gruenwald's run on Captain America. What makes so great was seeing Cap's stories and the Red Skull and his henchmen handling the day-to-day operations of their own team, the Skeleton Crew.

So I would really like to see some more villains based books as long as they use the good ones. A Joker based book, for example, will be very hard to do because you have to tell stories from the Joker's perspective, which is not something I can picture anyone's doing. A good villain's book have to give the reader some mean to identify with the main character or at least understand the hows and whys of his/hers behaviour. In this sense street-level/jobber villains might work even better than the big ones. Personally I would love to see some Rogues based stories.

What about Avengers disassembled? That is the worst that marvel had published in like the last ten years... It's just full of so many holes and contradict so many things that already been established in the marvel universe.

Agreed. Also I think that "The Crossing" deserve a passable mention as the bottom tier of a bottom tier decade.
