> I haven't seen the Bengal used in a while, but he was a South Vietnamese assassin whose parents were killed in Vietnam. He sought revenge on all of the American veterans involved in destruction of his village, including Will Talltrees/Red Wolf, Willie Lincoln, and even James Rhodes, a.k.a. War Machine, who is a member of Slott's cast.

Hey was the Bengal's first appearance in Daredevil? Was it that fill-in by Nicenza during the end of Miller's run? I think I have that issue. I thought the Bengal died...

>Instead of Cloud 9, Slott should have used Cloud from the Defenders. These two are practically the same, except for background. Why not use Cloud? Heck, Cloud could turn from a woman into a man and back again.

Alright, so two things:

1- Had Slott used Cloud in place of Cloud 9, these boards would be lit up with complaints that Cloud has already been trained and doesn't belong at Camp Hammond. It's a lose lose situation.

2- Didn't Cloud somehow end up in space? I remember those issues of Solo Avengers that dealt with Moondragon's ressurection where they ran into Cloud in space. It was never really explained (and I hoped it would have at the end of New Defenders, but it wasn't), but they make reference to her/his burgeoning powers. Regardless, I haven't heard from her since, did she ever make it back to the planet?

IIRC Cloud was in reality a sentient nebula who took on human form(s) more or less by accident. Once s/he realised THAT there wasn't really a lot more in the way of ordinary storytelling that could be done with hir.

It'd be like expecting the Molecule Man (and I wonder what his opinion of registration would be) to start jogging because, y'know, the power to reshape physical reality just isn't enough anymore.
