    Marvel, I want to thank you for answering my prayer. You finally gave us an asian to REALLY make it an ALL ethnic type book!

    "Avengers will be published twice a month, and Hickman is currently planning to mix together longer five-to-six-issue story arcs with one-off stories that focus on individual characters. As for those characters, Hickman is mostly keeping mum about the lineup right now, but he revealed one teammate to whet our appetite. Kids, we’ve got six words for you: Shang-Chi, master of Kung Motherf—ing Fu."

    Seeing Shang Chi's name in the Avengers is freaking awesome!!


Asians have been very under represented in the Avengers. Last one I can remember is Mantis. And Shang Chi has always been a under used character as well who has been around for decades.

Well, good to see Shang-Chi ending up on the roster more than just an overlooked Secret Avenger... I'm glad to see that myself, as well as the idea that there are going to be 18 members!

I normally have nothing but contempt for the entire concept of political correctness, but I have to admit it is kind of sad that the only Asian Avengers are martial artists though... makes me think we should recruit Sunfire on general principle. \:\)
