Yeah Ross is definitely about ends justifying the means, but to restore the Leader even as Red Leader I think is going to come back and bite him hard. If Leader's intellect is anywhere near what it was along with any telepathic powers, he would be untrustworthy and uncontrollable. I wonder what safety measures Ross has in place to keep him in place.
I can see Elektra and Flash-Venom staying with this group but even though Frank Castle and Ross are on the same page about their viewpoints, I really cannot see Frank sticking around with this group for long. Something is inevitably going to make Frank break away and return to his solo gig. Also I really think this series should have waited until the War Zone mini was finished. Ish 1 has Frank apparently using his usual solo methods before Red Hulk tied him up for a chat, so just HOW did Frank beat all of the Avengers and resume his one man war? Especially since ish 3 involves THOR going after Frank.
Deadpool.....well I guess every team needs comedy relief.
I actually hope to see Frank's character evolve in a way that doesn't involve cheesy gimmicks like added powers (though a suit that slightly enhances his abilities or some battle-suit would make complete sense). I think his upcoming experience with the Avengers is going to make them come right up against Ross, not only that we can definitely expect Frank having another great encounter with Hulk, probably Banner this time. I REALLY loved Frank's part in Stay Angry, I also loved Hulk's respect for Frank.
There is a definite reason Frank is being put on a team of this caliber, these are the type of people that could bring down the Avengers with enough planning. Though I'd never want to see that except if they had to incapacitate them. A Frank/Captain America re-match is long overdue (their first encounter, if I remember correctly, Frank won and deflected Cap's shield, even). I may be a bit of a boob for wanting this but I really want to see Elektra get a case of the hots for Frank again, like we saw about (in comcicbook time) 2 or so years ago in the 616 universe. Elektra's interest in Frank was so fucking cool and the way she just beat him to his targets was so "playground" teasing in that girl-likes-a-boy-so-she-annoys-him kinda way.
I'd like to see a romance emerge there, and I'm totally open for them to have a child, which would probably be the most awesome child ever.
