Don't believe I saw in the solicitations for December USAvengers, does that mean it hasn't been listed or canceled all together?


Thanks.

Or will USAvengers morph again like it did from the previous series?

I'm not really surprised, or disappointed for that matter.

When the shipping figures dropped from more than 200K to just 29K with #2, you knew the writing was on the wall straight away for this book.

Personally I thought it was a book that embodied everything wrong with the Avengers consept in recent years - characters not worthy of the title, and a concept spread far too thin.

The Avengers have now allowed in Wolverine and Deadpool. The days when we could say the Avengers are too good for this character or that character are over. Now they're a bunch of low class schmucks like the rest of us.

And if you count the 1959 team, Sabretooth was a member. Eyuck.

I didn't even know that tidbit. That's just...unsavory.

Introduced by Bendis in New Avengers v2 #10.

Sabretooth
Kraven

Namora
Bloodstone
Silver Sable
Dominic Fortune
Nick Fury

Even the later Howard Chaykin mini couldn't make it good, imo.

I'm talking as much about the profile of the characters as I am about their personalities.

Maybe theres an argument against letting Deadpool or Wolverine on the team, but is that argument really any stronger than the one against letting an ex Soviet assassin and saboteur on the team?

Personally I'll settle for them being interesting - something Squirrel Girl, the new Iron Patriot, Tom Selleck Red Hulk, and Pod are not.
