Which member of the JLA is Victory, who was added to the original Squadron Sinister (who modeled four members of JLA very closely)? Certainly none of the JLA that were members at the time of the original issue (cover-dated November 1969). I guess of later members, Firestorm ("the Nuclear Man") would be the most likely.

Really? Ugh. Blue Marvel, I enjoy very much but I feel like Sentry is a symbol of everything wrong with Marvel for the last 15 years. What started off as a clever April Fools like hoax turned into an overpowering Frankenstein's monster, the ex machina for every situation. And this, in turn, led to a lot of crap coming out of the House of Ideas.

I hope Voyager and her newly revealed past is eventually replaced with the history we all know and love (mostly).

Oh wow. I wonder if the writer was thinking of him. They do have similar costumes, powers, and Triumph was a retconned in Justice League founder I think.

And codenames are similar: Victory/Triumph.

Too many coincidences to not be planned, imo.

And he was created by Waid, as well.

OMG! Everything's connected!

Valerie Vector = Vicki Vale ;\)

      Well, we can be sure some survived. Not necessarily all of them.



    Quote:
    True. The most likely cannon fodder is Synapse, I think. Apparently she controls animals and is strong and fast. So why call her "Synapse"? Stupid name. Why give her a sci-fi costume? Stupid look. She's a Golden Age jungle vixen, or could be, except she's a teen. Stupid age.



    Quote:
    Synapse is toast.

They call her synapse because she controls and reads the electrical impulses of all typical brain functions. It boils down to just your garden variety telepathy, but the way they explained it was more neurological/biochemical. She's been able to boost immune systems, paralyze people, turn powers off, and yes, control animals (people are animals). She has difficulty with things that don't have biochemical brains. She's not particularly fast or strong.

She doesn't really have a scifi costume. It looks more ninja than anything, but it's a fairly typical superhero costume.

Golden Age? Jungle vixen? Huh? She's one of the NuHuman characters (humans that just learned they had the Inhuman gene after the Terrigen bomb). The bomb caused her grandfather to turn into some giant plant monster, and she's not too happy with Inhuman things because of that. Otherwise, she's just a normal Hispanic American girl.

I guess this is one of those instances when Wikipedia was unreliable. Here's what Wikipedia said:

"Emily Guerrero

"Synapse (Emily Guerrero) is a superhero in Marvel Comics. The character, created by Gerry Duggan and Ryan Stegman, appeared in Uncanny Avengers Vol. 3 #1 (December 2015).

"Emily Guerrero lived with her younger brother and grandfather, Ivan, when the Terrigen Cloud affected their area. Emily emerged with telepathy, animal control, enhanced speed and super strength. Later, she joined the Avengers Unity Division under Captain America's leadership. Despite being new, Steve Rogers had faith in her even though she and teammate Rogue did not get along very well. She fought Super Adaptoid by getting a flock of pigeons to take it out."

Assuming she had control of animals and enhanced strength and speed, she sounded like Super-Tarzan.

Oh. She's Hispanic. Never mind. She will never die.

I'm sure you've nailed it. Really cool! You deserve to do a victory dance! Or a triumph tango.

Only if Tim Burton is directing.

Don't think that the similarity of the names Valerie Vector and Valentina Vostok haven't occurred to me. Two double Vs. Two Vals. Vostok means "East," and direction is part of a vector. Voyager doesn't strike me as Negative Woman though. Yet.

Triumph isn't exactly a classic or well-known character. I'm sure that someone read that Grant Morrison run or issue, but this stuff happens in comics all the time (Maybe a little bit tooooo much.).
