Two things: All of those guys are definitely heroes. Simon waited until the baby was out of the mansion to attack. Not drawing any conclusions yet but this is really interesting, I've always thought Bendis has love for the character of Wonder Man, I guess this annual and the ultimate direction this takes will finally prove me wrong or right.
--Previous Message-- : I dont think its as simple as plucking names : out of the air. The question is who would : actually have the motivation to be a : Revenger? : : USAgent tows the line - he's a Cop and a : soldier and generally obeys the chain of : command. He's not likely to go rogue or go : up against the Avengers and the only time he : ever did that was with the Invaders when he : was duped into believing he was actually : doing the right thing. : : Sersi probably wouldnt even be bothered : getting out of bed for the Revengers. She's : generally a little superficial and above the : concerns of the common folk. : : I'm actually curious to see who actually : cares enough about Simon Williams and his : opinion enough to join a team on his say so. : Simons always been seen as something or a : celebrety seeking air head by many, a part : time hero or a guy who didnt have the : conviction to really commit to the ideal. : : Most people at best would see Simon as a : 'nice guy' rather than the kind of hero to : inspire an ideal. He's not the guy that most : other heroes would choose to follow or want : in the trenches with them so Bendis is going : to have to do some work and maybe start : pushing the idea that Simon is actually a : borderline industrial genius with an : indestructable hide and Hulk-level strength : rather than just some superficial B-movie : airhead. : : --Previous Message-- : : That's good to hear that Simon won't become : a villain. Maybe Bendis is gonna treat this : idea seriously, afterall. : : My first thought was he was going to have : Wondy put together a team of lame characters : and have them screw up with the Avengers : having to clean up their mess, thus making : Simon even more hateful towards them. After : reading what Mitchel wrote, I actually have : some faith that this may be a team that : sticks around a while! I really hope so. I : would love to see Wonder Man lead a credible : team of heroes. : : As for members, I have NO idea. I could see : USAgent, Sersi, Quicksilver and Spider : Woman. I would add Beta Ray Bill to my list : just to have another powerhouse and someone : with cosmic ties. : : Either way, I'm starting to look forward to : the "Revengers". One more thing, : could the Revengers actually become this new : Defenders book that has been rumored, or has : that been confirmed to be the old Defenders : returning? : : :
