that it's been a LONG time since the newest issue of Heroes for Hire came out. Also, this nagging feeling caused me to look at the April solicits for marvel and guess what....no heroes for hire! What's happening with the title and am I the only that cares ??

It was canned. The last issue made it pretty clear that the team was no longer together.

Heroes 4 Hire is not cancelled. Fred Van Lente pretty much confirmed it over at Newsarama.

Its getting a revamp and adding Scorpion to its roster.

'Only one question really. If Hercules takes off and say the Hulk wants his book back what would e the chances of that Renegades series downt he road. Not that Herc and Cho isnt enough but its a shame we dont get more of Namorita, Scorpion and Angel, all of which seem to fit well together as a team.

I agree, and as you may know, Incredible Herc was originally conceived as a Renegades series. All I can say is Marvel has not completely discounted it. Though Scorpion is probably joining another super-team, so she might not be available once we get around to it.'

Dont suppose you can say if its an existing team or not can you?

Existed until recently, will be shortly relaunched.

I'm tired of H4H myself. It started moderately well, had a really poor middle, and had a moderately good end to it which probably would have been better were it not for the fact that it was part of the generally dull 'World War Hulk' storyline. Changes in artists didnt help, although at least this was on the up by the last storyarc, but overall it spent far too much time being a poor to middling title and never really broke into a sprint.

I'd cast my eyes over another H4H book but I just dont think that theres a great deal that can be done with these characters, and personally I reckon the likes of Wing and Knight are better as supporting characters over in Brubakers excellent Iron Fist series.
