Whatever happened to the Agents of Atlas? They seemed to be a good following for a brief moment and then they just went away \:\(


The comics just didn't sell, sadly. I think it is the nature of the industry, that people simply don't feel like taking a chance and spending three or four dollars on comics with concepts or characters they are not familiar with and instead purchase comics with familiar titles, like Avengers or X-Men. Heroes For Hire tanked, Agents of Atlas tanked, the new Defenders series went away.

Honestly, look at Avengers Arena; half, if that many, of those characters were ever associated with Avengers. But they slap the Avengers name on it and it sells.

Marvel isn't the only one to do this; why do you think they have five or six Batman-ish titles or three or four Supermans? The magic team is called Justice League Dark for no reason other than to sell it.

I'm sorry for ranting, but I really, really liked Agents of Atlas and Heroes For Hire and was sad to see them go.
