Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

Monica has been part of Carol's supporting cast in "Captain Marvel" and currently has no codename I believe. Ronin will be a new Ronin, there have been previously multiple Ronin's who have used the codename. The very first one was Clint Barton (that he used when Clint first returned I believe).

Monica will be going by the code-name "Spectrum".

I was kind of interested in this until I learned of the creative team. I used to not mind Greg Land, but I've gotten tired of his work.

^ I think everyone has...I dropped "Iron Man" partially due to Land's art.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

Wasn't Echo in the Ronin suit at one point? She still dead from Bendis' Moon Knight run a few years back?

Spectrum, a new codename then. I'm not reading, Ms.Marvel so she has been active of late, just in a support role. With exception to Spider-man really the whole team is a collection of support MCU characters(isn't that WCA devolved into after awhile?). Cage is a major player but I view his role almost akin to Martian Manhunter. They don't know what to do with him BUT to stick him in an Avengers(JLA) book.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

Yep Maya (Echo) was a Ronin as well and I believe part of Luke Cage and Doctor Strange's New Avengers. Remember though it's Otto-Peter that is a member of the team, so we have that different dynamic to deal with. I suspect the supporting character thing is exactly why we have this specific team.

Also Monica while being apart of Carol's supporting cast, doesn't mean she hasn't been active as a superhero in it with Carol, which she has been. She just hasn't had a codename I don't think. Carol usually addresses her with first name. I believe part of her story arc in "Captain Marvel" has been getting back to being a hero again so her thread may well lead into "Mighty Avengers".

Echo was the first Ronin. then Clint. more recently Black Widow's ex husband the Red Guardian took over the Ronin identity in one of the Hawkeye minis that came out a few years ago.

Got home from work, read She-Hulk #66.
While I was glad to see Man-Thing and his development from his tenure with Thunderbolts is in tact(ie he can talk now) this story arc is dragging on. With two issues to go it appears that perhaps one of the downfalls of this title was a two part act story that drags on too long. It'll be 10 issues to tell this story that surely could've been reduced by half.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

From what I've read online it sounds like the whole idea behind Mighty Avengers is that these characters all come together when the bigger Avengers characters are off dealing with something during Infinity. So I think the purposefully picked lesser known or minor character.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

Avengers Academy was instituted on top of the old West Coast Avengers Compound.

Of course that just means that they built an Indian Burial Ground on top of an older Indian Burial Ground, considering recent developments.

I really do wonder where Avengers Arena sequences into the larger continuity that the Adult Super Heroes Should be wondering where the heck their kids are at?

They're too busy trying to figure out how Wolverine can appear in every book in the MU every month and still be lost in the Savage Land at the same time.

That is so true, which is why I did wonder why he had to kill himself last week.
