    So here's my question:



    Quote:
    We have the Vision. We have the Human Torch. Both are active in the present day at this time if I'm understanding you right.

    Why do we need Simon Williams?


Wonder Man is a character of his own, and gets bonus points for having been created by Stan Lee (Simon's first appearance in Avengers #8 was drawn by the often underappreciated Don Heck, but according to wikipedia Jack Kirby also had a hand in his creation). Eventually he was brought back in 1972 and since then must have racked up more on-panel appearances than the original Human Torch.

Simon Williams is a character of his own with his own personal connections, notably to his villainous brother, the Grim Reaper, and his long-running friendship with his fellow Avenger, the Beast (recently featured again in Uncanny Avengers). Simon may not be the most popular Avengers, but he has fans.
