    I'm in agreement with you, but the numbers speak for themselves.

And I'm not going to argue you about the numbers. The fact is if we got another New Warriors series it wouldn't last a year.

I personally never bought volumes 2-4 because these people we were getting weren't the New Warriors I wanted to read about. Give me the classic line-up and I would support the series.

    Its not like Marvel havent tried to relaunch New Warriors or many other once-successful franchises. The Warriors have had, what, three further series?

    Even titles which gain widespread critical acclaim - I'm thinking of Cap Britain and MI13 which is one of my favourites - still get cancelled, so its not always a matter of quality, but whether there is a demand for the product.

Volume two had a largely classic roster didnt it? I recall Nova, Namorita, Speedball.

I know that there were some newer characters on the team (think Firestar and Justice were Avengers at the time), but surely there has to be some innovation of the roster?

I didnt actually mind the latest iteration of the team. Whilst there was very little connection to previous rosters, I thought the story was a good idea - rebels fighting against Starks regestration Act. The fact that it tied into the fairly recent events of M-day with a number of depowered mutants on the team also seemed to be a decent idea.

Unfortunately, regardless as to the roster, the quality of writing or the ethos of the title, I just dont think the market is there. I fear that even a top creative team would fail to ignite the interest of the audience, and expect that the series would die within 12 to 20 issues or so.
