Quote:Here's the difference: The interests of Attilan could differ radically from those of the human race.
But so could the interests of Atlantis, Asgard, Olympus or Olympia. Wakanda's interests may go against America's interests.
I think the Avengers allow for members to be patriotic to their non-American/non human home.
Is it an issue that would come up...absolutely. But I think Avengers are like the United Nations. Collectively you're trying to do a greater good but individually you're trying to improve things for your corner of the world.
Medusa would be a fine Avenger until her people's interests are threatened. But threaten Black Panther or Namor's people and they're not going to sacrifice their citizens for a place in the Avengers.
I don't think Medusa is any different than the rest of us or any of the other Avengers. Threaten her interests or the security of her family and the people she is charged with protecting and she will attack. If someone threatens our family or the people we are charged with protecting I'm sure we can all be as vicious as the criminals we read about.
If nothing else Medusa is a fierce advocate for her people. That means she has at least some of the qualities it takes to be a great Avenger.
