The Banished One




I was looking at the new marvel preview magazine and they are coming out with the Champions. The only one I knew was Gravity and that was because he was in his normal costume.

So, does anyone know who the others are?

Also, who made up the old Champions?..I know Hercules, Angle, Ghost Rider, Black Widow, I think.

That's not Gravity. It's the new Hermes. All of the new Chapions are based on the Greek Gods. I think there's even a new Hercules in there. The original Champs were: Hercules, Black Widow, Angel, Iceman, Ghost Rider and the lovely Darkstar. Black Goliath was around for a few issues, and the Widow's pal Ivan was around as well.

I'm old guy...and I read the original series just a couple of years after it was done with, and do you know what? It was crap back then and it hasn't gotten any better with age.

It was during that time Marvel was just pumping out books to trademark names. In fact, a reader wisely pointed out in one of the lettercols that the Champions didn't have a reason to exist, and he was right. It was "lets toss a bunch of mildly popular homeless characters together and give 'em a name."

Stay tuned for the Force Works revival in 2021.

not only did it suck, it was a patch work of heroes. The line up made no sense.


And I got a laugh at of your Force Work comment as well.


I hate to say it, but I felt the same way about the Defenders and the Avengers, to some extent.

totally agree with u! I have vauge memories of the orginal series, so I read the TPB that came out a few months back and thought it was total crap! I can't see why anyone would be nostalgic for that dreck!
