I thought I would make a poll with some of the most unusual character out there. To see if I could spark any interest in them becoming Avengers. Remember these choices are coming out of left field. So vote for the one that is the least painful for ya.

Karnak would actually be interesting, his power fits nicely with most lineups and he'd have entertaining friction with normal human team members like IM and Cap.

I also voted for puck :p , I also think the character has great personality and is a good team player.

Puck also. Just so we can salvage an Alpha Flight character.

I can also see some friction with Logan over skewering Northstar, Puck's former teammate... but considering Jean Paul was an iritating SOB, Puck might NOT be so upset after all!!! :D

Karnak

Just becuase of his abilities. He could take out anyone and anything easier then anearly all the Avengers combined.

05-17-2005, 03:40 PM
I think there are quite a few characters here who could make cool Avengers. Magma, Karnak, Smasher, Longshot, Shape, Puck... all would work.

Gonna vote for Magma though. I'm a sucker for the New Mutants. :)

Cool Poll. Voted Magma, but I'd love to see Puck, Brother Voodoo and Karnak join up.

But not all at once.

I love Puck and Brother Voodoo (and voted for BV). Either way, I am not sure either fits with the Avengers. I could definitely see Puck somewhere in an X title. BV would have been a great character in the MAX line.

It's possible that BV could somehow fit in the Avengers, but he would definitely need a little reworking (costume and powers)...and I am afraid such a reworking would ruin what I love about the character.

As an interesting side note, I have a great mini-series idea with BV as one of the characters...let me know if anyone is interested and I might share it.

Man if they can fit the square peg that is wolverine into the round slot that is the Avengers they could put anyone on the team. So I think everyone fits in Nu Avengers...

Personally, I would love to see Lockjaw in The Avengers. But from among the list, the most unusual choice would be Brother Voodoo.

Were you going for most unusual. I was looking for who you wanted the most. I just gave unusual choices to shake things up.


No love for the Atom Smasher I see.

What about Aphrodite, Goddess of Love? I love the What If #9...The Avengers Had Been Formed in 1950's? story.

Of the choices, I'll pick Captain Ultra . He's alot better than Wolverine, Spider-Man, & Luke Cage as Avengers. Heck, Brother Voodoo is better choice than Wolverine!

That was Venus, and I almost but her on the poll. Maybe I will do another one if this drops to the bottom again.

I voted for Magma--she's powerful and skilled enough to hang with the Avengers. Anyone with the degree of control and versatility, not to mention strength of will, of Magma's level is A-Team material. She's a team player, but has enough attitude to challenge the "nicer" Avengers like Cap.

A Tony/Amara hookup could make for interesting drama as May/December relationship between two modern aristocrats.

Atom-Smasher is a DC JSA character. The Imperial Guard character you're thinking of is just called "Smasher" last time I checked.

Captain Hip. Because the team, heck the world, needs a character who apparently owes his powers to the experiences of Ken Kesey :D

Given how bizarre the current lineup of New Avengers is, I think any of these characters could potentially join up.

I'm voting for Brother Voodoo. Bendis loves his 70's Marvel characters, and the Brother would fit in perfectly.

Ummm, Northstar is gay, not incestuous. Perhaps you're thinking of ultimate Pietro and Wanda?

Anywho, I'd be equally happy to see either Puck or Karnak on the roster.

Oh, and is this for the New Avengers, or the pre-Dissassembled Avengers?

I did think they played it like a second rate pairing of Wanda and Pietro. Aurora and Northstar were shown to have a very similar relationship (jealous brother and over-protective, slightly dotty female sibling etc.) - but then Marvel women are generally within spitting distance of insanity half the time :(

There was a story in Midnight Sons Unlimited, in the late 90s, where he just called himself Jericho Drumm, rather than Brother Voodoo & had a really cool look (it's because of that story that I voted for him).
Besides, if Dr Druid was able to get on an old team, then let the Brutha on the new team!

I voted for the Brother. With Cage and Spider-Woman (and White Tiger in DD), Bendis has shown that he loves his 70's Marvel. Surely New Avengers has a place in it for "the senses staggering superhero who died...yet lives again!

Also, I'm all for Devil Dinosaur joining. And if the big guy is there, then Moon Boy is a given.

I see he is popping up in Marvel team up. So maybe he will get a shot someday. I glad that he has popped back up again. I hate it when character's go from active to limbo. With no attempt to keep them selling.

Some interesting choices. I was torn between Brother Voodoo/Jericho Drumm and Longshot. In the end I chose BV. I loved the revamp he got some years ago in the Supernaturals mini. I would like him even more if he just went by Jericho Drumm as he did in Midnite Suns. I've always had a soft spot for magic users and it's cool to actually have a black male characcter be one for a change.

Here's the best pic I could find of his revamped look in Supernaturals (thankfully they nolonger had him running around barefoot):

Besides if the Avengers team is pretty much stocked with movie-franchise characters (Spidey, Cap, Iron Man, Wolverine, Cage), which may tempt folks who don't normally read comics to pick it up, then having a guy looking like Ghost Rider on the team can't hurt? ;)

PIP THE TROLL!!! If he were a new avenger i would immediately crap my pants and then go buy every single issue for all eternity until he was off the team. CMON PEOPLE! Its obvious he is the best choice! The team needs a teleporter, and his humor would play so well of of spiderman, wolvie, and cap. Spidey is the only funny character in this book right now, and Pip's humor is a lot dryer than spideys and a lot less corny, so it would be a great compliment. I could see him and Wolvie goin to pick up chicks and get drunk after a long day of battle. Actually, now that this has been proposed, I don't think I will be able to enjoy the book anymore unless Pip is a member. Pip rocks!
