You Decide: Which New Addition to Jonathan Hickman’s Avengers Are You Most Excited About?

Jonathan Hickman added a bunch of new Avengers to the Avengers at the end of his first issue (and I’m sure he’ll be adding even MORE new members as time goes by). Which of the new additions are you most excited about/most interested in learning more about them?

I have to admit — I voted for Captain Universe on the slight hope that she turns out to be Monica Rambeau — and that she will at one point tell Cap to go back to Avengers Mansion and cook her dinner.

Actually, Shang-Chi was an Avenger before in Secret Avengers, but I love how innovative the other choices are. I’ll go with Smasher; the Imperial Guard are an untapped resource of story potential.

I’d be more excited if he added sensible pacing and didn’t waste pages with empty splash pages of titles (the two page spread of white space with the issue title spread across it was particularly ridiculous).

@deron

Hickman has said that those title pages are in place where ads would have been put.

@Randy: So we could have either ads or giant wastes of space, but not additional story? You know, like something to tell us how these particular Avengers came together, what exactly was happening to the cities where the aliens’ genesis bombs were landing, or the like?

@deron

I guess maybe Marvel wouldn’t let him have more pages and they just let him use the ad pages for the titles instead. Maybe it would have added to Opena’s work schedule, I dunno. He’s got a form spring account, you could ask him.

I’m not overly thrilled or excited about ANY of these new additions. It’s like ANYONE can be an Avenger these days.

Totally! This reminds me of this one time where they got rid of all but one member of the team and added three SUPER-VILLAINS to the team! Man, it’s like anyone can be an Avenger.

It’s not a problem that anyone can be a member of the Avengers. It’s a problem that everyone has to be a member of the Avengers.

I want the next lineup of Avengers to consist of ROM, Bug, Planet Terry, Crystar, US1, the Thunderriders, Skull the Slayer, Omega the Unknown, Dazzler, NFL Superpro and the Human Fly.

Okay, that made laugh real hard.

@buttler: I just want more ROM period.
