The New Avengers! by Gwhitmore The New Avengers! by Gwhitmore
The genesis of this cover goes back to Defenders (1st series) #47 where the Defenders and guest-star Moon Knight met Wonder Man. I wanted a team that starred those two, plus Crystal and Quicksilver (who were happily married at the time) and Namorita. Later on, Quasar was introduced to the Marvel Universe and fit really well with this team. To round out the group, I wanted a female Skrull, a character I originally just created. But my sense of characters and continuity let her fade to obscurity when Lyja -- the Human Torch's ex-wife who masqueraded as Alicia Masters for a time -- was created. So there you go. The inspiration for this group should be pretty obvious. :)

Who the heck would be the leader?

Good question. Quicksilver has the most experience, Quasar has the best moral compass, both Moon Knight and Lyja have been trained in battle. I'd lean towards Quicksilver.

That's going to be a very unstable team.

That's the fun. You can't predict what will happen! :)

Actually...Crystal may be the stronger leader. Which would rub Quicksilver all kinds the wrong way.

That would be fun, but I don't think she has the right mindset to be a field leader. Then again, I thought that about the Wasp before Roger Stern showed me how wrong I was....
