The great lakes avengers mini was funny but annoyed me at the same time. It's like they reconned the early stories. In the early stories the gla were like the 80s justice league, funny but could still fight to the end.
Check out the wca issues with them then look at the new version. The 90s team saved wanda, cap and she-hulk, fought the east team to a stand still and really hold thier own in a fight. That's one of the things that lead to cap and iron man to ok them as an avengers team. They were even part of the big battle in jla/avengers.
Look at today, They can't fight at all, in the deadpool on-shot it said it was thier first win yet they won many times in the 90s. They are awful in a fight.
It's like the wca issues were reconned away.
You can still make them funny without making them wimps guys. look at the 80s justice league. They can still be losers and throw a punch.
Can someone explain why they changed this?
