Quote: 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?
Captain MArvel retruned for 3 issues of Secret Avengers...sacrificed himself and Ms. Marvel decided to be the new Cap. Captain Britain was asked to join teh Avengers at teh beginning of the Heroic Age by Cap but hadn't been utilized until around issue 22 of Secret Avengers. As for his brother Jamie...Psylocke took over Brians mind and forced him to kill Jamie to save all of reality in X-Force a few months back.
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.
Deathstrike appeared in Remender's X-Force which led to her helping the Descendents in the Secret Avengers. That arc was interrupted by AvX and will be picked up on immedietley after the threat of the new Masters of Evil is squashed.
Quote: 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?
Storm joined the Avengers but left a few months later to help the X-Men in AvX. Daredevil is a current member of the New Avengers.
Black Knight was last seen a couple of years back in Captain Britain and the MI13 I think. Sersi was killed in Eternals but brought back to life as the book was cancelled (around when X-Men was dealing with starting Utopia. Photon is a favorite of mine and many other old school avengers fans. after 10 years of background cameo appearances she appeared very out of character in Warren Ellis' Nextwave. She was a bit of a B**** with a chip on her shoulder. She was also revealed to be dating Brother Voodoo and appeared in the catty Marvel Divas limited series which focused on Firestar dealing with cancer surrounded by her friends Hellcat, Photon and Black Cat
. I SWEAR I saw her on a previewed Alan Davis Avengers cover dealing with Fear Itself but it disappeared/changed. I'm hoping she has a spot on Hickmans roster when he takes over in Jan.
Quote: 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.
Wasp is still dead, Whirlwind is still a creep, and I don't think he has been seen since that fight
It was a shame. Geoffrey John was going to put Whirlwind on the Avengers roster before he left the book and Bendis took over. He said he wanted to have a villian reform and kind of see the book through his eyes. Would have loved to see that. This was in an old interview in Wizard magazine actually.
