Excalibur being wielded by a Carpet-Rider. Absolute bullshit.

Hey! I got a great idea for an issue Dracula brings the Legion of the Unliving back; it' Charles "The Hammer" Martel, Torquemada and Pope Innocent. And at the end Faiza convinces them all; Drav included that Islam is a religion of peace and they all become Muslims :)

Captain Britain & the Mighty Defenders


That has to be Prowler.

The thing that gives it away? My obvious boner.

These books need Eric Bischoff running them. Then at least there would be some HLA.

That's pepper Potts. She got her own iron man suit and goes by the code name rescue

The thing about the diversity movement in comics, is that their idea of diversity is to stick minority or female characters in the role of white dudes.  It'll never stick and what's more, they'll take guys like the Falcon, who's been a superhero for years, and they'll basically say, "No one will care about this black dude unless we stick him in a white dude's costume".

Thats true though Marvel are pretty cognizant of the fact that nobody will ever give a shit about 99% of new characters. At least not enough to actually shell out money for their books. And they probably only really care about the short term sales/publicity boost anyway rather than being truly diverse. They get some attention from mainstream media, buzz from pissed off fans and in a couple of years they get another sales bump when they put everything back the way it was before.

They need a flamboyant gay guy and a hard hitting dyke to complete this team of politically correct misfits.

Seriously who the fuck are they actually trying to please with these characters and changes? The 15 raging nerd guys reading this shit definitely dont care about a muslim chick and a woman thor, so who?

Another all-female team. I guess that's the new trend.

And I'm pretty tired of all the characters who got well-done hero/anti-hero turns in Thunderbolts getting casually reverted back to full-on villains.

We don't know that for sure. These are still alternate reality characters and it is officially being referred to as Kid Rescue. That is Prowler as well.

Having Ms. Marvel on the team is fucking stupid. It doesn't fit the character and she has an awful power. She is Reed Richards-lite in the stretchiness area and doesn't have any of his intelligence that make up for such a shitty power.
