So the new marvel solicits have a Title To Be Announced by Matt Fraction, it also mentions that this is the second issue. How did I miss the solicit for the first one??

Probably something to do with the dispute that surfaced regarding the trademark to the name THE CHAMPIONS.

The Champions
Of Los Angeles

It is set in California, right?

Haha, and Los Angeles already pulled that once with the LOS ANGELES ANGELS of Anaheim.

well it's a bit of a question mark because the trademark-holders of the Champions as a comic book title are threatening to sue Marvel (if they haven't already). I don't know how different this is to the Nextwave situation though (Nextwave had to change its name after the first issue, to Nextwave: Agents of HATE, which was an ironic title because HATE was their enemy throughout the series), whether they can just extend the name by a word or two and get away with it.

They could merge this with people's hopes and dreams of Marvel Apes!

CHIMP-IONS!
