Ms. Marvel is a neat idea but will be dead in 12 or less - too many things against it - reactionary fans, creator with no mainstream appeal, female character etc.
Not to be cynical, but...

1) It got Marvel a day's worth of mainstream press.
2) At worst (ie, it runs for a year, plus/minus three months), the book is "Ms. Marvel" trademark protection.

Hoping for an Excalibur/Ms. Marvel meeting. Considering their coincidental shared roots in superhero fandom...

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

Meh, that way lays madness.

You'll end up with another book like Mighty Avengers or the All girl X-Men team.

"I am not defined by just one thing!"

Integration vs. segregation.

All that aside, funny enough, I was wondering what "Excalibur" was up to yesterday.

That's just an awful name for a person on a team called Excalibur to have, while holding a sword called Excalibur.

The team is MI-13 now. Excalibur takes her code-name from the sword.

Who killed the Watcher? Marvel teasing next year's event maybe?

That would be a heck of a kickoff for one, wouldn't it?

Military Intelligence (Section) 13 is "hypothetically" real, even though the British Government has only ever admitted to the existence of Military Intelligence as high as MI12 and most of those specialized arms were burnt off after WWII.

MI13 the comic, disappeared a long time ago.

Captain Britain is the headmaster of a school named after himself, and he's probably spenidng most of his time trying to talk Meggan into making more little Braddocks but she's sad that she can't make any Wagners.

Did a Watcher break up his parents marriage or something?

Jeph Loeb likes to open every story with somebody getting murdered by a mystery killer. It was great in Long Halloween, but it's getting a little repetitive...

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

I know others here don't probably care, but Captain Marvel #17 was great. It was basically a love letter to Carol and her fans...and the end ties in to "Ms. Marvel" as well which was intriguing. I will be looking forward to the relaunch next year along with the new artist. DeConnick paired with a decent honest should be awesome.

Frakk.

Now I have to read #17 because you ########'s already tricked me into becoming emotionally invested in Ms. Marvel.

The Watchers also watch each other. That won't be much of a mystery.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

It's not a huge tie-in, but it teases Ms. Marvel's title and connects her with Carol.
