I hope in the Mighty Avengers they finally give Wonderman his due. Most writers seem to use him as "filler"...always being one of the heroes getting blasted or knocked out first. Jeez, he is supposed to be one of the most powerful heroes in the Marvel Universe - almost as strong as Thor. And yet, when do you see him defeating the bad guy or being one of the last standing? I believe he should be more powerful than Ares.

I was glad to see that it appears he can still fly and that he helped stop the Helicarrier (sic). I'm also glad he isn't all purple when he fights, but I think that it would be cool if when he really exerts a few purple ionic energy bubbles would show.

I know he is not the most popular character, but I have liked him since his first Avengers appearance in the 60s (YES, I am that old!!!)

I couldn't agree more with you. Wonder Man has always been my favourite character, hence the name. I have always thought that the writers don't use the character the way he should be. Maybe this time.

I also hope he get a really good costume as well!
