    I was reading New Warriors #4 the last night and I didn't see Marvel Boy on introductory paragraph at the top of the splash page. Was this an error or was he not considered a part of the team? I was very confused.

Marvel Boy was considered a founding member. If he wasn't listed in issue #4 it was a simple mistake because he was listed there many other times. Now in later issues I think he was dropped from the paragraph at the top while he was in jail for killing his father (from issues 26-43 he was incarcerated). Night Thrasher was also dropped I believe when he quit the team and was added back when he rejoined. I think later in the series when Vance and Namorita got new codenames they were reflected in the paragraph and it was also noted when Kid Nova went back to just being Nova.

I'm ashamed to admit this but I was neurotically invested in the membership byline for the New Warriors book as well as who was in the headbox on the cover but didn't really care about that aspect in any of the other comics.

I do wish they could recapture that early New Warriors magic, there's not been much of anything quite like that book since from Marvel, but like Ultraforce and early Ghost Rider it was a product of its time. And at least it exists in its own little bubble where we can pretend their adventures never ended.... \^\-\^
