Quote:So here's my question:
Quote:We have the Vision. We have the Human Torch. Both are active in the present day at this time if I'm understanding you right.
Quote:Why do we need Simon Williams?
Wonder Man is a character of his own, and gets bonus points for having been created by Stan Lee (Simon's first appearance in Avengers #8 was drawn by the often underappreciated Don Heck, but according to wikipedia Jack Kirby also had a hand in his creation). Eventually he was brought back in 1972 and since then must have racked up more on-panel appearances than the original Human Torch.
Simon Williams is a character of his own with his own personal connections, notably to his villainous brother, the Grim Reaper, and his long-running friendship with his fellow Avenger, the Beast (recently featured again in Uncanny Avengers). Simon may not be the most popular Avengers, but he has fans.
