Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

MI-13 is still active as an organization in the comics, though, despite not having its own series at present. I'll be surprised to not see it used in either Secret Avengers or Wolverine (whose current writer is a co-creator of MI-13).

So we actually know who watches the Watchers?

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

Well, back in the 70s, during the Trial of the Watcher storyline in Captain Marvel, there was a line something along the lines of, "Are we not Watchers? Do we not also watch... ourselves?" So, presumably, they keep an eye on each other at all times. And people complain about the NSA.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

According to Quasar comics in the early 90s... The Watchers are making an "Idiots guide to existence" for the next Universe after this one bites it.

Oh and the funny thing that Stan thought up 50 years ago, and I never got until they just outright said it in FF last month... "For a guy who swears not to interfere in our lives, isn't it ironic that your name is "You-ought-to"?"

The other cool thing from 50 years you never noticed.

Say Namor backwards.

Doesn't that completely explain his personality?

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

There was a crap anthology series a couple years back which had an ongoing noir story within about an NYPD Homicide detective working a case on a dead watcher.

Meanwhile that Quasar stretch I was talking about involved a cosmic serial killer knocking off Watchers.

Remember Aaron, Uatu's nephew, he did some dodgy shit in the late 80s.

That was deliberate. Everett chose the name by writing a bunch of regal-sounding names backwards and that was his favorite. I was always happy that he didn't go with Keerg.

He went rogue after being inspired into "action" in that same "Trial of the Watchers" storyline in Captain Marvel.
