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.

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!
