Quote:• So, thaaaaat's Voyager's ORIGIN.
Quote:I wouldn't use that word since we don't really know her powers (something about space/time and portals) and, whatever they are, we don't know how she got them.
Quote:Incidentally, whatever powers Voyager might have - Rogue could have them too if she absorbed them from somebody.
Quote:Obviously Voyager is a future Rogue. I mean, come on. Either a future Rogue or a future Thundra after the High Evolutionary got through with her.
OMG! It's so clear now! Voyager is the unknown daughter of Rogue and Sentry who was sent into the past to form the Avengers.
Okay. Someone delete this before Marvel gets any ideas.
Quote:Hmm, does that mean the KOOKY QUARTET are remembered as the KOOKY QUINTET?
Quote:Undoubtedly. But I wonder how powerful Voyager is. If she's a blockbuster, then the Kooky Quintet was a very different proposition from the Kooky Quartet. Also, Captain America is diminished by this retcon. After all, this very era of the Avengers is what made him the unquestioned leader in any scenario. The "A" on his forehead could practically stand for "Avenger" first and foremost because of this very era. That effect must surely be diluted in this retconned reality.
Quote:Hmm. "A" on Cap's head. "V" on Voyager's belt. A-V-engers. I bet they were a romantic couple. Mom and Dad of the Avengers. They certainly seem to be standing pretty close to one another.
This is why I teeter on "infuriating." The Kooky Quartet loses all of its charm with her around. I think it might have been better to have her killed in Avengers first mission, but they're probably tying this story into the one in Avengers v1 #70.
Quote:And of course Avenger X is completely ignored here.
Quote:I have no idea who that is and maybe I don't want to know. Do I want to know?
Recently retconned character just last year (see the start of the last Avengers series and Point One issues). She had this great power, but to fuel it, she had to kill people. Her retconned history is that she was an early Avengers recruit gone bad and kept secret. And this is the other reason I teeter on infuriation-- Marvel needs to stop building stories on retcons.
Quote:• Cap didn't feel the need to Assemble! Or maybe he is en route with slow motorcycle? Hmm...
Quote:Or maybe he isn't sure he'd be welcomed by his ex? I'm telling you, man, Cap and Voyager were an item. But it didn't end well. She wanted to rename the team "The Vengeful" so it would match her belt, but Cap was having none of that.
Cap is frozen. We saw him in Washington DC last issue.
Quote:• Trope cliffhanger. There goes another Mansion. Probably no one is worried at all with Wanda and Voodoo there to pull off a giant shield, eh? Or maybe Voyager will surprise us.
Quote:We can be sure the Avengers survived. The mansion is toast, though. Which, frankly, seems fine to me. I always loved the mansion, but still, if we're being realistic, the mansion should never have lasted weeks, let alone years. It's just a house, for crying out loud. Almost anybody who can fight the Avengers can obliterate a house.
Well, we can be sure some survived. Not necessarily all of them.
City of Heroes is BACK!
