Subj: Don't you need heavy hitters when taking on Ego or Galactus?

THe only problem I see with a cosmic group would be that they would all be way too powerful together. Quasar, Pulsar, Cap Marv, Sentry, Nova....these are all major hitters.

Actually, I didn't mention Sentry, as he hasn't had many cosmic adventures (revealed anyway). Although, that negative zone connection would be interesting...

Anyway, it only makes sense to have the heaviest hitters on the largest scale: protecting galaxies from galactic level threats. People on Earth save the universe too often, a cosmic team seems much more appropriate.

Plus teams like the Avengers or the F4 only care about people like Nebula or Terrax only when they directly threaten Earth, which isn't very often. A cosmic team would be able to actually nullify alien threats for good by locking them up in the Crunch, and pave the way for humans to start colonizing the stars (very slowly).

Plus races like the Skrulls or even the Shi'ar get pissed when Terrans stick their noses into intergalactic affairs (just see Maximum Security). Doesn't that sound fun?
