Well, how 'bout, at least, a new header submission?

Does Fred Hembeck deserve an Appreciation Thread here for his notable volume of Avengers Characters work?

[Did he influence the vote for Doctor Voodoo's membership? ;\) ]













A LOT MORE fun and funny classic Hembeck pages to thoroughly enjoy!:

> SIDEBAR SURVEY:


If you could choose 1 of the 4 rows of Heroes, above, as the new core line-up which would you enjoy reading every month?

OR

Which 1 of the 10 COLUMNS of Heroes would you want as the new Kooky Quartet staying at The Mansion? Maybe hint at the dynamics you'd expect?

Not column nor row, but instead a square. See pic. Yes, I know, I'm a cheater.

This gives me something I've long wanted: Johnny Storm on the Avengers full-time and long-term. It also gives me Monica Rambeau, whom I love. Plus it puts Hercules front and center, which is something I always vote for. And the Falcon shall lead them!

This team has a lot of power, and three of its members can fly. Sam can wear the Captain America suit instead of the Falcon suit, tying this new KQ to the OG KQ. Monica, in some ways, is the team's mightiest member, which Wanda of the OG KQ arguably was, although it took a long time (way past her KQ days) for her to be written that way. Johnny and Herc are both hotheads (Johnny literally) as were Clint and Pietro.

Monica, if she's in the market, will have a decent shot at three very different yet very eligible bachelors. (At least I think they're all bachelors. Am I wrong?) But if she's smart she'll keep her heroic life and her personal life separate. Or would that not be smart at all? Which twosome (if any) would the fans ship? Should she try all three and ultimately reject them all? Should she remain aloof from the start? Would her aloofness drive Johnny and Herc crazy?

It's the New KQ of derring-do!

Besides picking a square, there's another way you're kind of cheating. The Torch in that picture is almost certainly Jim Hammond, the OG Human Torch, who was part of the West Coast team for a while.

But, putting that aside, what could Johnny bring to the team that Capt. Monica couldn't do better?

Row 4 is the least objectionable to me (USAgent and Mantis). That's some badass powerhouse: Simon, Sersi, Jocasta, Carol, Wendel, and Jericho. Plus, T'Challa on tech.

As for columns, I'm torn between:
* 8 -- Wanda, Bobbie, Bonita, Carol all-female quartet
* 5 -- Falcon, Tigra, Jocasta, and Jim Hammond

I thought of that, but Reed and Ben are included, so I figure the burning guy is Johnny.

It's more about what the Avengers could bring to Johnny. He needs to leave the nest. Every adult eventually must. The Avengers are a sensible place for him to make his mark independent of Reed and Sue.

But also, Johnny is one of the most experienced, most skilled, and most powerful heroes. Sure, Monica can generate heat, but Johnny is like a GOD of heat.

Column 5 would be interesting. Human Torch, Falcon, Tigra & Jocasta. A real underdog team with some interesting personality dynamics.

Column 6 would be hilarious to see how long Monica could put up with Druid, Agent AND Hercules.

Column 10 has the most potential to be a powerhouse team. Iron Man brings muscle and tech. Thor brings muscle and more muscle. Brother Voodoo brings magic, and Beast would have to up his game on the agility/fighting technique.

The columns are too much for me to think about right now...
