      Can't someone at the Bullpen come up with a better codename for Joaquin since he doesn't want to keep copying "Falcon"? Why not have a contest?



    Quote:
    I can't believe this guy is named "Falcon." I mean, does Sam Wilson know? But I don't read the book for these extraneous team members so really I don't care what he calls himself.

Of course, Sam Wilson knows. He became Falcon when Sam was Cap, and he never stopped. He and Sam Wilson even share a psychic bond through Redwing the vampire bird.

      Sam makes a typical Comic book story seed decision that in IRL would be a DUMB, IMPULSIVE, SELFISH decision.



    Quote:
    Yup. Who knows how long he'll be gone? Doesn't he have family that will wonder where he is?

His mom (in Carefree, Arizona). Yeah, but she always worries. New York or space, it's not really that different.

      The group decision to let him go with his would-be assassin wasn't much better, eh?



    Quote:
    I guess they figure he has the right to decide for himself.



    Quote:
    I agree with Black Guardian that this was the best plot line we were likely to get for Sam. It gives him something exciting to do with an entertaining companion and at the end he'll probably get a helmet and go back to being a Nova, albeit a rogue one. I also agree with Black Guardian that I would probably buy a Sam/Kaldera mini-series.

I'd bet dollars to donuts he gets a girlfriend out of this adventure. Yay! *rolls eyes* Kinda like the John Stewart and Fatality thing.

Poor girlfriend back home that hasn't been seen much in a while.

      Miles and Kamala debating the death of Dubai Girl was thought provoking and maybe the only good part of the issue (save Sparky's save).

      Plus, it's good that he's off the team, better for character and title IMO, in spite of Mephisto wanting it too - anyone agree?



    Quote:
    I'll never want Miles to leave the team. He was one of my original Champions. (He was on the team when I started reading the book.) Miles, Sam, Kamala, Viv, Amadeus, Riri, Nadia, Amka... these characters and their interactions are why I buy the book.

Agreed. Even though I'm not much of a Miles fan, he's a pretty core person to lose. Without him, Champions is a 3-legged table.





    Quote:
    I think just Cyclops. No other X-Men. But I could obviously be wrong.

    Scott used to be a Champion so it makes a kind of sense and is especially poignant with Kamala questioning her right to lead. In marches one of 616's most iconic leaders.

I think you're right. Adult Cyke now has all of those teen memories he's gotta do something with, I guess.
