    To me Vision has kind of been a pod person since Byrne dismantled him.

Dead Avengers reminded me how much I miss the character.

    For some reason Elysius creating Genis always reminded me of Gargamel creating Smurfette.

Gargamel created Smurfette??? How? Is she a sleeper agent just waiting on a trigger phrase that will cause her to slit Papa Smurf's throat?


      What do you think about Songbird as an Avenger? I think she deserves a shot.

    Yes. I used to be a fan of hers when she was with Mach-1/Abe Jenkins. That's another reason I think I hated Genis...his fated romance with Melissa.

Yeah. I really wanted Abe and Melissa to be together.

One thing we haven't gotten in Marvel comics in a while are slow, gradual romantic storylines where the writing makes us *want* the characters together. There's a ton of hooking up going on, but it's all out of nowhere and purely sexual.

Which would be fine occasionally, if it were ever characters I wanted to be together! Instead of Hawkeye and She-Hulk, we get Hawkeye and everybody else.

There have also been way too many retconned revelations of relationships. Like Sentry and Crystal. Or the White Queen and just about everybody. Even the consistently innocent acting in all her prior appearances Squirrel Girl can't escape it.

    She deserves it...I can't imagine her staying an Avenger long term but it should happen. To me once one of the founding Thunderbolts becomes an Avenger (not a dark avenger like Karla) that means their redemption theme has finally come full circle. Once one has gotten the heights Hawkeye did and became an Avenger then the Thunderbolts journey towards redemption was a worthy endeavor.

Whenever she gets her Avengers ID card, some writer who hasn't even read the original T-Bolts run will have her pick up her cell phone and tell Zemo, "I'm finally in. What do you want me to do?"

Or worse, instead of Zemo, it will be the Hood, retconned to be her *real* lover. And we'll tear the comic in half.
