The youngest Avenger leading the group might seem as likely as Star-Lord beating Thor in an arm wrestle

It's not just that he's the youngest, it's that he's not even out of high school. Cap was the youngest Avenger (time spent as a human ice cube notwithstanding) until Wanda joined the team.

Also tony wasn't the leader of the avengers, so him choosing his successor sure as hell doesn't lead to Peter becoming the leader of the avengers.

During F&TWS, there didn't seem to even be an Avengers team anymore.  Sam certainly wasn't part of one anymore, Wanda is Lord knows where, Thor is off-world, Banner had stopped being part of the team after the Snap and is now recuperating from his reversal, T'Challa has his own world-wide humanitarian project, Dr. Strange didn't bother to get involved with the Hex in his own backyard, so he's obviously got bigger fish to fry, Hawkeye has zero charisma as a leader, Captain Marvel has the rest of the universe to look after, no clue what Ant-Man and that whole crew are up to, ditto Rhodey (although we saw him in uniform in F&TWS). I

The complex was destroyed but surely the Tower is still in NY.  Someone get Pepper or Happy on the phone, get a new team together of old and new members in the Tower, and let Rhodey or Sam lead (both of whom are military officers).  Oh, and set them up with some of that Stark cash so that Sam's sister can fix her boat, dammit.

The next iteration of The Avengers should be under Nick Fury's control.  If SLJ wants out, put Maria Hill in charge.  The deleted scenes from the first Avengers movie show she has far more influence and potential power than we've seen her wield.  Have them under the control of the new SHIELD (or SWORD), which can cause a splinter group to develop.  New Avengers, Young Avengers, whatever.  This could lay the groundwork for another Civil War.

Or maybe the next phases should focus more on individual heroes while introducing a new team.  It's not like Marvel doesn't have two equally powerful and popular teams waiting in the wings.  While neither the FF or the X-folks could really use and of the announced characters in their teams, they can certainly interact with them.

Seriously, how about the Wasp?  In the comics she was Chairperson/Leader of the Avengers for quite a few years, and was a good one at that.  Even the Marvel trinity gave her their glowing endorsement.

Sam is the only option that makes sense to me. Leading the Avengers would be a demotion to Captain Marvel, Dr Strange, and Ikaris.  They're not doing it.  And Spidey is too inexperienced.

I still think Chris Evans eventually is going to return. He'll miss the attention (and money) too much. So I'm betting on Old Man Rogers being the leader and working from the shadows. Maybe from some kind of moonbase.

I know you probably meant Hope, but Janet is still #1 Wasp to me.
 
2021-06-07 12:02:52 PM  
Is it too early to pull the trigger on the Young Avengers?  The Avengers have been disassembled, Eli Bradley's been introduced as a secondary character already, and Far From Home already showed the world was looking for people to take the Avengers' place, so a group of would-be successors like that would seem to fit.

floor: Ant-man. Then we turn the phase 4 into a romantic comedy.


Slight thread hijack:

I am excited to see the newest Ant man movie where, once again, the woman from LOST and Michael Douglas think he is an idiot (and consistently treat him like shiat) for 2 hours.

I have no idea why this triggers me so much, because Amy from Saint Paul doesn't do it. I know Ant Man and Wasp is basically unwatchable for me because of it though. Like, I get it in the first one, I do.

Over the years The Wasp has ran the Avengers very effectively on several occasions.
Jan acts a bit like a ditz but she's sharp about her allies and their foes strengths and weaknesses.

Pretty sure Captain Marvel is going to be leading the Avengers since Phase 4 is going to be more in space and other dimensions.
She has the off world experience.

SM to young, Prof Hulk would decline he knows he's not the order giving type, Sam... Isn't ready for  off world *yet*.
I believe Dr. Strange would decline because of his own responsibilities but he;ll be there to help when needed.

They should give it to Rocket.

Ok. So we just drop this baby right here and the Hydra base becomes a mile wide smoking crater. Civilian casualties? Oh boo freaking hoo. Fine. We give them a two minute warning. If they can't get away on those long humie legs, it's their own fault.

Captain Marvel could have easily beat Thanos by herself. The writers of the movie were careful to keep her out of the first part of the fight so that Thanos could have the gauntlet by the time she shows up. This means she could also kick Thor's ass. Hulk might have a chance but he gets scared when he gets slapped around so he'd probably wimp out. Remember this:

That's with him wearing the gauntlet. He had no chance against her without it.

Sam makes sense to me, too.  But...what made the Steve Rogers a "super"hero was the super-soldier serum and Sam explicitly said he'd never take it. How is Sam going to survive the punishing beatings, etc., the way OG Captain America did without it?

I don't think they followed Steve because of the serum, though.  They did so because of who he was.  And Sam does not have Wakandan tech, which isn't nothing.

He doesn't have to. Hawkeye and  Natasha didn't have any special protection.

It also doesn't matter how old Parker is, he is too Sony.

I would wager on someone new because nobody currently seems like a good fit. Only Sam seems to have a chance, and I just don't see it.

Him not being earth based even remotely is kinda a big dealbreaker. If the guardians had decided to stay on earth I'd say rocket was a fairly decent if unconventional choice since he's a genius and is basically the leader of the guardians when he's not letting starprince pretend he is.

Circumstance and plot have really put Marvel in a corner with The Avengers. Every possible character has potential issues.  All with leading them, but some even with being credible regular members (vs. just occasionally being there).

Sam Wilson, AKA Falcon? The dude who, in his series, lounged around in the grass with Bucky and made no effort to save Captain America who came to help them and was still fighting?

The guy who stood by when the Wakandans were trying to kill Captain America after he tried to peacefully defuse a situation yet dared, dared I say, to touch of of the Wakandans?

You want that asshole to lead the Avengers?

Not at that point he wasn't.

War Crimes Walker was in danger because of his own stupidity and arrogance and neither Bucky nor Sam had any reason to help him considering he accepted something stolen from the Smithsonian where it was given as a gift, not to mention constantly belittled them.

That the Flag Smashers are morons, Captain America got screwed by everyone and was a pretty peaceful and quite a nice guy coontil they murdered his friend and he killed the terrorist), and Sam was an asshole?

I think I got those bits. All the forced "but Captain America stands for bad things so I shouldn't take up the shield" bit was just tacked on bullshiat because we couldn't possibly have  a black protagonist and not shoehorn in hamfisted racism issues.

I mean, he didn't have a job for 5 years (being dead and all), has no current enployment, so he can't get a loan! Imagine that. A black man not getting loan. Surely they must be racist rather than him being a financial liability to the bank.

I also laughed out loud at the "do better" at the end. What a sanctimonious prick. The world had scaled down everything from food production to consumer goods in the 5 years since the snap, and then suddenly the population doubles. Yet he dares going around preaching how the people trying to parcel out what is there should "do better" while proudly stating that he doesn't know what their job entails or which resources are available.

Not to mention the guy who semi(?) supported the flag smashers because he couldn't get a teacher, a teacher of all things, assigned to his school within 6 months.

Yeah, that show is a mess.

Aaaah, yes. "The guy who came to help me and/or my associate's at least twice in life threatening situations (highway vaccine scene, and Zemo with the Wakandans) was mean to me and he carries the shield I voluntarily gave away so I should let him die" defense.

That completely covers why a sociopath wouldn't help.
 
2021-06-07 5:53:16 PM  
Oh, and that war crime was after the fact. Which crime had Walker comitted during the fight on top of the truck with vaccines that would make it okay for Wilson to not go back into the fight to help him out?
