I Can’t Believe They Never Thought of the U.S.Avengers Before Now

Happy Fourth of July, everyone! To celebrate, Marvel Comics has announced the U.S.Avengers, a super-patriotic themed version of the Avengers to rise up after Civil War II! Looks neat, and I think I’ll give it a try when it comes out. It’ll be written by Al Ewing, with art by Paco Medina.

Proud to be an American Avenger!

The basic concept is that Sunspot gets his New Avengers team commissioned by the U.S. Government, which sounds pretty cool. I don’t remember if the government has had an officially sponsored Avengers team before. There was the 52 State Initiative, and the government has had various strike forces before, but a full-on Avengers team? Especially one this unflinchingly patriotic? Could be neat!

Among the team, we’ve got Squirrel Girl, Red Hulk, Pod, Cannonball, Sunspot, and two new members: Danielle Cage from the future, as Captain America, and Toni Ho as the new Iron Patriot. She’s apparently the daughter of Ho Yinsen, the man who helped Tony Stark build the first Iron Man armor. He was pretty great in the movies.

Lookin’ sharp

Hopefully this patriotic version of Squirrel Girl won’t mess up her solo series, Unbeatable Squirrel Girl. I’m sure Ryan North will know exactly how to incorporate it into his comic, which remains the funniest comic on the stands.

    How many captian Americas do we need, you got Steve, Sam, the one from the future with spidy 2099 and now another one. Come one

  2. They actually announced this on Friday – on Canada Day! I’m still resentful about that. “It’s Canada Day, so let’s announce our American-themed title!” Jerks. Such an American thing to do.

    Regardless, I’m excited about this. I love Ewing. It’ll be great to see Sunspot and Cannonball as a team again. And I’m glad that we’ll get to see Pod and Toni continue to develop their romance. (I refuse to believe that’s not where Ewing is going. I have few ships. Toni/Pod is one of them.)

    • Ooooo, Toni and Pod have a romance? I knew I was missing potentially good stuff by dropping New Avengers.

      • Well . . . it’s hinted at. There’s definitely feelings there. It seems like it’s leading towards a romantic relationship. That’s my hope, anyway. I seldom engage in shipping, but I ship Pod and Toni hard.
