Okay, so I missed a lot of new stuff, but Secret Avengers sounds interesting (Except for Captain Marvell. Did they really bring him back? Ugh! Why? You figure that him, they would have left alone.). So, can anyone tell me what's been happening since Remender took over the book? I know that Venom/Flash is on the team (I guess that it makes sense since Remender wrote his solo title. Surprisingly, it's still going on.), is Captain Britain? Also, Jamie Braddock returned? Awesome! I love him. What did he do? Did they water him down, or was he at his usual omnipotent power level? And did they mention Mad Jim Jaspers? Also, what villians have been in the book? I read that Lady Deathstrike made an appearance (Actually, I thought that she was killed.), have there been any other cool villians/guest stars? Bear with me here, as I've been out of the loop, and I want too get back into some of this stuff.

As for the Avengers: Do I have this straight? Are STORM and DAREDEVIL on the team(s)? Sounds strange if they are. How exactly did this come about? And is this going to impact the reboot? Meaning, will they be gone? Regarding some other members: Does anyone know the current status of: the Black Knight (Dane Whitman.), Sersi (One of my favorites.), and Photon/Captain Marvel?

Regarding Whirlwind; what's he been up too? Is he a sociopath/creep? The last time that I remember reading about him was in the Avengers Academy issue when he fought Giant Man after the death of the Wasp (She's still dead, correct?), and he seemed too have loved her. Whirlwind seems like one of those villians whose not really all that bad, but he did stalk Jan a few times didn't he? Can HE be considered Hank Pym's arch-nemesis? Thanks.

I honestly don't recall seeing Jamie Braddock in the title since Reminder took over. Hmm... I'll look again. Over 100 villains were in the last issue ALONE of the title, as members of the new MOE, so, honestly, breaking that down may be tough. Taskmaster's guesting right now as well, as well as the Iron Man 2 version of Whiplash.

Yeah, Storm and Daredevil joined the Avengers. Storm's tenure was just the one case though, since she quit to side with the X-Men. Her husband recommended her, but, since he's since decided to cut all ties with her, I assume he's regretting that. Daredevil was asked to join
Cage's Avengers after saving his girl's life in Fear Itself. He's done more with the team in his own book so far than in the Avengers titles though. Go read it, it's good! I suspect that he'll be sticking around, since he's a big name, and his home book writer seems to clearly enjoy his membership.

Black Knight's working with MI-13 in England. Most notably, the Black Panther gave him back an Ebony Blade and he revealed that Sersi had turned his heart into stone, preventing him from falling prey to strong emotions, the Ebony Blade's curse, or vampire attack. Sersi's been in the most recent Eternals series, and is apparently dating Makkari now. She died briefly, but that's over now. Photon/Pulsar/Captain Marvel/Monica Rambeau hasn't regularly appeared since Nextwave. She had a totally out of either version of her character appearance in Black Panther that got retconned as her Earth-A Counterpart in She-Hulk, so they don't matter. No idea as to whether or not she's still brainwashed by HATE to have her Nextwave personality.

Whirlwind did more than stalk Jan a couple of times. He infiltrated her life posing as her chauffeur for YEARS, ending in a murder attempt and an attempt to steal her estate in his secret identity, and he was the straw that actually pushed Hank into trying to kill himself. He routinely hires prostitutes, dresses them as Jan, and mercilessly beats them. The man is total scum. He's definitely in the running as Hank's archenemy, since Egghead's dead and Ultron's a ton worse than Hank can deal with alone.
