    The Avengers is supposed to be Marvel's elite team, the best and most popular heroes in a single book. Stunts like the WCA literally cheapen the...

    For a supposed Red Room graduate I'd expect to see a lot more murdering. That whole "I never killed anybody, I was in R&D" excuse doesn't add up. No...

    New Marvel editors actually making any decisions at all would be an improved. Don't forget all the screw-ups from last year alone. Such as when an...

    Well, it just seems to me that you're downplaying the cynicism behind WCA as a concept. Intrinsically the Avengers name still has value, thanks to...

    If branding wasn't important then these reject heroes in the new WCA wouldn't bother to call themselves 'Avengers'. The branding of a more successful...
