Hey, gang. We’ve been laying low with the “Right to Assemble” column as the “I am an Avenger” reveals rolled out and SIEGE continues. Now that we’ve had three titles identified in the promo campaign (Avengers, Secret Avengers, and New Avengers), and we’ve had a fourth confirmed via our interview with Tom Brevoort (Avengers Academy), we thought it was time to come back with a look at the new teams and conduct a poll.
In previous installments of “Right to Assemble” (like here, here, and here), we talked about Post-SIEGE line-ups. I even forwarded the idea that there could be a Big Guns team, a street-level team, an “X-Force” style team, and a Young Avengers book. So, I’ve got that going for me.
While we do know via the Ed Brubaker interview and comments by Brian Bendis on Twitter that the team rosters are not necessarily confined to those characters in the promos, here’s what we know.
- Avengers: Captain America (New Cap, apparently), Thor, Iron Man,Spider-Woman, Hawkeye. Wolverine and Spider-Man were also on the solicited cover for #1
- Secret Avengers: It’s still a secret! But my guesses are Steve Rogers, Valkyrie or Scarlet Witch, War Machine, Nova, Beast or Gorilla-Man, and Moon Knight.
- New Avengers: Spider-Man, Wolverine, Luke Cage, Jewel, The Thing.
- Avengers Academy: Likely a mix of pre-existing Young Avengers, New Warriors, and Initiative members.
Of these line-ups, which one interests you the most? If you could assign other characters to the teams, who would you like to see? Frankly, I think that Iron Fist is a must for New Avengers; hell, I’d throw in She-Hulk too because the team’s already loaded with smart-asses.
We want to hear what you think. And to that end . . .
