So I just read Secret Avengers #4 and Steve makes a mention about finding a new member for when Nova is busy. Not just a new member, but a new Cosmic-Level member. Any ideas on who this new member may be?

This would be the best new cosmic member:

I know it will never happen but Gladiator joining would be epic.

I'm pretty sure it's going to be Red Hulk.

I thought Red Hulk was joining the Regular Avengers?

@Nobody: Well Cap went and visited him after his capture in Hulk #24, Hulk and Cap talking about how useful Ross could be. But I do remember hearing something about him being in the regular Avengers. We'll see. I'd really like to see Red Hulk on the Secret Avengers because I'm a fan of both. I'm loving how I get a new cosmic book every month anyway. I hope it stays that way.

@jloneblackheart:  I love both too. And Avengers have been a little...eh. Hopefully if Red Hulk joins it, the book will improve.

Can't see Silver surfer doing black ops on earth. I would be glad too if beta ray bill joined but my guess is probably some one off of Guardians of the Galaxy

Ooo, Beta Ray Bill would be pretty awesome, but I doubt it'll be him. I don't really know any cosmic level heroes outside Silver Surfer, but I'm pretty sure he's been pretty busy. And I thought Red Hulk was confirmed to join the regular Avengers?

#13 Posted by iLLituracy (13537 posts) - - Show Bio

I was wondering who it could be...a cosmic-type that would join up with Steve. 
 
I was thinking Quasar.

You serious? Or are you just cruelly pulling my leg? If Sentry is coming back and joining SA, I take back every single bad thing I've ever said about Marvel.

Steve was hella wanked with the control of the Nova Force. I still love him though.
 
I really want Starlord or Rocket Raccoon to join but I doubt it.

1.I'm joking about the Sentry thing. 
2.Most of the Avengers teams recycle themes.Each team has members that have been Avengers before.Noh-Varr is the only real new Avenger.So just think about who it could be in terms of who has already been an Avenger. 
 
Narrow it down to who has been an Avenger and is cosmic level.... 
You have Quasar,Pulsar (Monica),Crystal,Moondragon,Mantis,Aleta,Major Victory,Charlie-27,Darkhawk,Jack of Hearts,Martinex,Nikki,Starfox,Yondu.... 
 
My guess would be Darkhawk or Quasar.Quasar is most like Nova and Darkhawk best fits with the team.

To be fair, Bendis came up with Sentry. So he was his to ruin...unlike Noh-Varr.

Exactly, one series is one of Marvel's finest achievements, imo, and the other.... (shudders).

Didn't he appear in New Avengers first? (I'm seriously asking, I don't know).

There was the original Marvel Knights Series which had 5 issues and 4 tie-ins "Sentry and Spider-Man, Sentry and X-Men, Sentry and the Hulk, and Sentry versus the Void". That was his first and in my opinion, best series. This was the Sentry's first appearance, and his character here is what I call "Marvel Knights Sentry."  Also, this Sentry is vastly more powerful than any other version. When the Void first appeared, the Marvel Universe literally gave up all hope. Simple as that, the Void shows up; you're done.
 
Then there was a second series titled the Sentry, only this one went for eight issues. This series wasn't quite as good, but it helped Robert fit into the 616 Universe a little better. This was the first appearance of what I call "Marvel Universe" Sentry. 
 
There was also a silver-age inspired mini-series called the Age of the Sentry, but no one really cares about that too much, it doesn't add much to the character.
 
After that, Bendis re-introduced Rob into the mainstream continuity with his New Avengers story, which wasn't too bad. After that, he made various appearances in New Avengers and Mighty Avengers, and in a Civil War one-shot called the Return, where he beat down the Absorbing Man with no effort. 
 
Then there was the Dark Avengers/Siege debacle, and finally we arrive at Fallen Sun, which, if you'd read the original series, was very good. However, if you hadn't, it was pretty bad, because you didn't know just how good a hero Bob was. 
 
When it comes to the Sentry though, you can basically look at him like this; 
Paul Jenkins' work = Brilliant
Brian Michael Bendis' work = Awful.

LOL. It will be funny if everyone has wild theories on who the new recruit could be, and it ends up being Shang Chi.

@Vance Astro: Do you think it is necessary for the Secret Avengers to have a cosmic level character in their ranks? I had a conversation of the subject today, and I'd want to know what you think.

Perhaps they are going to have a character appropriate sub for each of the arcs before setteling one one.

Century, Darkhawk or Gravity would be cool to see.  Beta Ray Bill would be better though.

Yeah, that would be cool, but it's already confirmed to be Shang-Chi.

How the hell is shang-chi going to replace Nova?

#43 Posted by The_Martian (36984 posts) - - Show Bio
@Lance Uppercut:  I don't think he is. I believe people are looking to much into a cover. How often do characters have guest appearances without joining the team?
#44 Posted by Lance Uppercut (23245 posts) - - Show Bio
@Nobody: That's what I'm thinking too. I mean, replacing Nova with Shang would be like the X-Men replacing Wolverine with some angry badger they found on the side of the road. It's not adequate, and makes no sense.

@Thor's hammmer: cant really be surfer either because he is also in the same fight along Nova.
#46 Posted by The_Martian (36984 posts) - - Show Bio
@Lance Uppercut:  Agreed. Plus they have plenty of street level heroes already on the team.
#47 Posted by CosmicGod432 (177 posts) - - Show Bio

i am 99.8% that they wont use quasar,silver surver, beta ray bill, because they didnt use nova because he's busy helping the guardians in the fight with the "fault" so why would they pick any of the others because they are doing the same exact thing. i honestly think theyll either pick someone local(earth) or just pick no one at all

#48 Posted by The_Martian (36984 posts) - - Show Bio

They should have put Noh-Varr on this team instead.

With his Shang-Chi Force. I thought everyone knew about the Shang-Chi force. It chooses a host once every 200 years and imbues said host with the ability to be a decent martial artist, provided the host undergoes years of training in martial arts. It also grants the host the strength of a man who engages in regular intensive exercise. And it can let the host fire beams from his hands that are powerful enough to push the core out of a star (but the last one isn't used very often).
