What is it that makes one an Avenger? That’s what this series starring characters from all across the Avengers’ history will
attempt to answer! Featuring tales of Iron Man, Captain America, the Thing, Iron Fist, Justice, Firestar, Squirrel Girl, Nova and
the Young Avengers and more!
32 PGS./Rated A …$3.99
The Thing? He's been an Avengers for all of, what, one issue? (Since he never officially joined in WCA.)
Same with Iron Fist and Nova. Why not get some of the more marginalized classic Avengers some time? Black Knight, Simon, Wanda, Vision, Jan (guess those last two, and maybe three, would have to be a set-in-past story)...
Glad to see some love for Vance and Angel, though, and no mention of Luke Cage, Spider-Man or Wolverine (though the latter two are front and center on the cover).
That's awesome. I have wondered for a while what a Jim McCann Young Avengers story would be like!
honestly cannot wait for this x]
You're right that he has only ever been a member of an active roster for about 1 issue...but he has been seen a few times as an inactive/reserve member called in for every-Avenger-ever situations, plus there was his stint with the WCA which led to his joining. Besides, not every Avenger has actually served a stint on the active roster: Mantis, Hellcat, Moondragon, Two-Gun Kid, Stingray, Sandman, Firebird, Silverclaw, Machine Man, D-Man, Mar-Vell, etc, are all considered Avengers but none of them have been active roster members.
definitely looking forward to reading this
