    I forgot about Joy. She'd make a fun 'reporter' stereotype. I really liked her in the Lobo Bros storyline, how she was trying to balance being a nosey reporter with being Gloria Grant's real friend. Yeah this is a good choice.

Thanks. She is also a Moon Knight character. So, this could be interesting. \:\-\)

    Yes I really liked them too. Serious question though: would they perhaps be seen as sexist because they are singled out purely because they're women? I ask this in innocently. When it comes to issues of gender now, every statement seems to curry debate and controversy. So I wonder if a group centred around someone's gender would be seen as inherently sexist by some?
    Note: not by me. I just wonder the point for other people's input. Don't want to spark a debate either! Just curious.
    I love them anyway. Knockout looked cool and Bloodlust dangerous.

Erik Larsen obviously had a lot of fun when he pencilled them. I don't think there would be a problem. Two years ago, they appeared in one of the X-Men books, working for Viper. \:\-\)


    You know I sincerely almost said them myself when I mentioned Taskmaster but what holds me back is Spidey took out Blood Spider with one punch and Solo of all people took out the others. So I'm not sure these guys are that much of a threat. Give them powers and I'd say coolio.

Clearly, they are cannon fodder but they are more fun than generic cannon fodder. \:\-\)

    Oh yes! Loved these guys too. They had the name before the Decepticons made it canon. ;\) But wouldn't they make better Iron Man villains, do you think?

They are former Iron Man foes but that's not a problem. \:\-\)
Do you remember the Jury? They also had armors.
(Actually, one of them was a former Guardsman)

    Someone's a Clone Saga kiddo. ;\)

A Mark Bagley fan (^_^)

    Lady Octopus is sorely underrated - I wish it'd been her in the Spiderverse movie. And Armada was great fun.
    But Joystick is another level. I adored her in the Thunderbolts and I'm quite surprised she's been totally forgotten. I'd be up to see her anywhere in the Marvel Universe. Heck I'd like to see her in the MCU even! She could even be rewritten to be a video game loving villain... quite topical in this day and age.
    But I'd like to see her square up against Ben Reilly again. Surprised she didn't actually.

When SpOck was around, I was expecting Lady Ock to appear but only Stunner did... :-I
Lady Ock recently appeared as a member of Janice Lincoln's Syndicate.

I like Joystick. I don't know why she was forgotten contrary to Delilah (who is still more or less active in the Marvel Universe)?
Maybe, Marvel editors thought that her moniker sounded like a smutty innuendo and they preferred to forget her?
