Marvel's Invaders revived just to fight among themselves

Wired's blog reports that Alex Ross and Christos Gage are coming up with a new Invaders series set in contemporary times, but that may be as far as it goes:
Comics artist Alex Ross has teamed up with writer Christos Gage and artist Caio Reiss to resuscitate Marvel Comics’ World War II supergroup The Invaders for the new millennium. But who will they fight after the Human Torch kills Hitler? Themselves, of course.
Yup, instead of fighting al Qaeda or even Hydra, the only thing the writers and artists can think of doing with these classic teams today is to pit the heroes against one another. They've become just so predictable...and boring.

And somehow, it doesn't surprise me that Ross, who signaled his dislike of the conservative movement a few years ago, would be involved in this.

When the company and their staff let it be known that the heroes are only going to fight each other instead of villains, that should be all one needs to know that this won't be worth the paper it'll be printed on.

Why is it always Nazis and al Qaeda, why not some cracks against North Korea or Stalin's reign?

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
