Yeah, the concept isn't 100% waterproof to me either, especially as their debut appearance in the preview below for New Avengers Annual #1 shows Wonder Man grimacing more than a Rob Liefeld comic and mentioning the Scarlet Witch, once the love of his life, without any compassion at all - but Century is back baby!
As my ultimate weakness of that era, Force Works slid to a close, I was adamant the teleporting Century was Avengers bound - but no such luck. Seeing if this or his burgeoning love of the Scarlet Witch (and what role the Avengers played in her fate) factors into his new allegiance has deffintily got me on board for this story arc, if not only to see where it takes him.
The final nail of the piece? The art is by Gabriele Dell’Otto - and as this preview shows he's comin' out swinging once again!
For those keeping count at home, other Revengers include;
Anti Venom - the guise of original Venom Eddie Brock
Ethan Edwards - a Skrull who crashlanded on earth and was raised by farm folk like a certain Kryptonian
D-Man - former wrestler turned protector of a colony of sewer people
Atlas - the Kirby and Lee created Thunderbolt founding member
Goliath - ex-military soldier, killed by Thor clone in Civil War
Devil Slayer - former hit-man with mystic cloak and arsenal
Captain Ultra - with powers like the Vision, he led part of Iron Man's The Initiative, and clashed with Stark when two of his students died in order to protect those who survived.
Two giant men in one team? Looks like 'Earth’s Mightiest' have just met Earth’s deadliest, and something tells me I'll be surprised at who is left standing when they part.
New Avengers Annual #1 by writer Brian Michael Bendis, lands in September from Marvel Comics.
