    Quote: excitement at being able to purchase on eBay the first 45 issues of the origiinal New Warriors series for just under 30 dollars!

    These stories will be brand new to me. I never followed this book when it was coming out.

    Once I get these and read them, you may find me joining the ranks of those who look for any glimmer of hope that the original team will return.

    I'll say this, even now: Marvel shouldn't bother with anything less than the original team doing the original sorts of things for the original reasons. In fact, Fabian Nicieza should be commissioned to write it. Why mess around? Why do things by halves? Commit to a 12 issue run, promote it like you actually believe in it, get Newsarama to gush over it, and in the end, worst case, you'll have two trade paperbacks to sell. Best case, you'll sell enough of the pamphlet version to go another six issues. Don't mess around, though. Put on the shelves the thing fans actually want. At least if it doesn't sell, you'll know you published the real thing, not some knock-off. If people demonstrate they don't want the real thing, fine.

I loved the New Warriors but it was one of those runs where I didn't want anyone else to touch the characters. I haven't enjoyed other writers use of the New Warriors (particularly Speedball's treatment during and after civil war and Justice joining the Avengers and his personality going right out the window).

I would totally go for your idea. The six founders written by Nicieza. Give me that book and I will enjoy it and support it. The only tweak I would make to it is add Silhouette and Rage. I always felt like those 8 were a true family as time went on and the later members were just later members.
