"The only White person left on the Avengers is Thor."


  

          

And he's now a she.

Spider-Man? Miles Morales, Black/Puerto Rican, and <barf> from Brooklyn.
Ms Marvel? Kamala Khan, Muslim desi from <barf> Jersey City.
Captain America? Sam Slade of Harlem.
Nova? Sam Alexander, non-specific Latino from Arizona.
Thor? Blond white chick.

Vision's a fucking Android.

No one is saying who Iron Man will be, but there's talk that it won't be Tony Stark.

I never got into Thor, but I genuinely like the lineup. And because these characters have been around for a few years, it doesn't feel forced, or like they're pushing this as the MINORITYVENGERS. Feels more like a lineage lineup: characters that have inherited their roles.

I'm intrigued as shit.

PRETEND YOU CARE.

Rumor is that it'll be Pepper Potts in her suit.

Did you feel that way about Luke Cage's Mighty Avengers? I kinda did for a second but then I think I liked them being more grounded as opposed to battling world-shattering, cosmic threats all the time.

They're doing an all-female team too.

I'm definitely interested but I'm also hoping for a traditional squad too. I've been an Avengers fan for a very long time and I like the fact that they're mixing it up. But I'd miss the old guard.

I liked the line-up of Mighty Avengers, but it felt a lot more 'Defenders' than 'Avengers'. It also had terrible timing, as the Axis event just made the book feel awkward.

Blue Marvel > Sentry, though.

And I wouldn't bat an eyelash at an all-male Avengers, so all-female Avengers is gonna have to come with good stories, just like any other book. I'm hoping they don't treat it as a gimmick.

There was never anything good about the Sentry. Blue Marvel has an interesting back story with lots of possibilities.

is that why they are saying is the A-list?

or

is this a group kind of like "Young Avengers" was (more of a teen titans equivalent)? <--- this asked based on how many avengers teams have been running around simultaneously as of late
