Another needless reboot for the Avengers

Inside the Magic reports the Avengers are being rebooted again, which must mean the starring series is being relaunched, but if anything's clear, the writers now assigned are no better than the previous:
The Avengers are a vital part of Marvel history. From the team’s beginnings in the pages of comic books to the all-star cast bringing them to life on the big — and small — screen, the Avengers are one of the most prominent pop culture phenomenons in the last century.

And in just a short while, Marvel will officially reboot the team, handing the reins to the cosmic-powered Captain Marvel.
The news they're keeping Carol Danvers in a role that wasn't organic is all we need to know something's wrong, and it's unlikely they'll provide her with good writing to make it palatable either.
Taking over from Jason Aaron, Jed MacKay and C.F. Villa will reboot “The Avengers” on May 17 with a whole new story and a whole new team. This version of the Avengers will be led by Captain Marvel and will feature Thor, Iron Man, Captain America, Scarlet Witch, Vision, and Black Panther.

[...] According to Comic Book Movie, this team will assemble when they become aware of “The Tribulation Events” — grand scale events that look to cause immense danger and disaster to the universe. The writer goes on to acknowledge that this team represents the “heavy hitters” of the Marvel Universe, bringing iconic characters to the fore. Could the future of the Avengers on screen mimic that of its source material; that is could Carol Danvers AKA Captain Marvel become the new leader of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes?
If they intend to portray her as a Mary Sue, with almost no flaws of any kind, if at all, then they're only retaining a farcical approach that's been common for years already, and has even become common in the movies adapted from these comics. Even Aaron's taken this kind of approach with his writing, and it's only dragged down the quality of comicdom even more. And speaking of movies:
As for Captain Marvel, Brie Larson once more returns as the powerful Avenger in this July’s The Marvels (2023) from director Nia DaCosta. She stars alongside Iman Vellani (Kamala Khan/Ms. Marvel) and Teyonah Parris (Monica Rambeau/Photon).
The way they describe this only compounds the likelihood this'll be another Mary Sue rendition, and it looks like the Muslim Ms. Marvel is going to be part of this upcoming movie, hinting this could be more propagandistic than the 2019 Capt. Marvel movie was. Providing only all the more reason to pass.

The Avengers is definitely vital Marvel history. But these latest products in both comics and movies since the early 2000s most definitely aren't.

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.
