    This does look like a pretty lame move at the outset, though. Sure, they technically created America Chavez at Marvel, but a good bit of what makes it so seemingly lucrative to do a derivative character at this point is from work others have done with her at Marvel since. I don't see how they could not be hoping a bunch of people will see this and think "oh, it's like that character I like from Gillen and McKelvie's Young Avengers!"

    Which is why I'll check it out as I hate Gillen's version

    That's exactly what makes this weird to me.

    I'll probably check it out & long as it doesn't interfere (much) with EofW either way, I'm good.

    She was awful in Young Avengers. Like it really made me dislike the character. She's such a stereotype of "fiery latina" but comes off as just mean. To me the whole thing symbolised the need for there to be more/better hispanic characters in comics because Ms America showed how badly that is being handled. I'm sure Ewing can do a better job with her in Ultimates, but I'm still hard pressed in liking the character as the YA run really soured me on her.

    I will say they really didn't do much beyond scratch the surface with the YA run with Miss America, I felt even in Vengence where she was also glossed over to a degree, she at least got the moment where they zoomed in on her face showing despite saying she was fine how much a mid air battle took out of her and a section where her determination is shown coming to the forefront in a impossible scenario. That being said, I agree it doesn't feel as 'earned' given the short time Casey and Dragotta actually spent with the character despite creating her but we will see what they do with it besides trying to cash in on her recent popularity rise.

    I wonder if Marvel is trying to stop the book from getting published by publishing their own America Chavez ongoing next year.

    EoW is in it's final year of the apocalypse... about 12 to 15 more issues.

    Well, they can't stop it from being published but yeah I wonder if the Chavez solo is a response to Casey's book.

    What ever happened to this? I would have liked to have read a solo comic about this character, that isn't terrible.

    Good Marvel characters- Bring Them Back!!!

    Ha Ha! I was just thinking about Joe's comic recently myself. And looking at my post from a year ago, it looks like perhaps I was wrong.
