I don't know why this isn't bigger news. I guess because the rumor has been around for a while now. Anyway, it would seem it's confirmed...

I like EMH so I can't claim to be excited about this. It seems like a pretty blatant attempt to cash in on the movie (same Avengers + Falcon for some ethnic diversity). I also don't see how this makes logical sense. If kids who saw the Avengers movie and got excited are tuning in to EMH now does it really make sense to pull the rug out from under them with a whole new continuity?

But I guess that's the price Marvel pays so Loeb can consolidate his power.



sorry but what's the point of starting a new series with pretty much the same characters. They will have put 52 episodes into developing these characters and introducing reuseable villains just to start over again, introduce the same characters, probably some of the same villains, find a new reason to put the team together, ridiculous. It'll probably be the exact same audience too.

EMH has been the first Marvel Heroes team series that's managed to handle an every-changing roster (even if only 9 members total) and could have continued for years. If Marvel wanted a certain lineup, wouldn't be hard to change things up.
