The big hope left is that they'll avoid the traditional Villain Team-Up pitfall and start pointlessly backstabbing one another, thus ensuring their downfall. Such a beautiful friendship should not end in tragedy.

The pun is still worth it.

Wily/Eggman gives me flashbacks to that issue of JLA that gave us Professor Ivo and TO Morrow working together. I have to wonder if Ian Flynn was using that issue as direct inspiration.

I don't even want them to take out Sonic and Megaman. I'm totally cool with them losing to their heroes, together, and just staying bros. Either still working together, or going their own way and just knocking back drinks together in the wake of defeats.

As badly as I want this to be the case, I'm more or less expecting this to end with the two arguin with each other as the plan starts to fall apart. Best case scenario I'm expecting is the two being locked out of the others universes and the two of them acting like they just lost a lover or something.

I think the thing was that the Avengers paid 16,000 dollars a year to members but they told him he had to defeat the Hulk to join so he made knock out gas or something anyway he used it and Hulk turned into Banner and then Spidey was like well poo poo he's just a guy dealing with his problems and didn't join.

i am pretty sure i didn't make that up.

That was in the '60s. Then in the '80s he tried to join (again for the money), but the government wouldn't let him because Henry Gyrich is a dick.

I remember there was some story in the late 80s/early 90s where Cap was scouting Spider-man as a potential recruit while the Avengers were expanding, and Spidey did a major gently caress-up on the mission and Cap fed him a load of bull about how he's needed on the streets and probably works better alone. It was contrived as hell and it's obvious it didn't work out simply because back then the "Spider-man can't be on a team he just can't" edict was firmly in place.

I feel like posting panels from Nextwave is cheating. You could literally post any page from any issue in this thread.

Then I wonder why I care if it's cheating, when I should be encouraging you to flood this thread with Nextwave.

Quite honestly most of the panels I've seen have felt a little forced in their humor to me, but maybe it all works better in context. I just love seeing cool old sideline Marvel stuff like The Mindless Ones come out of nowhere.

Despite it's sterling reputation a lot of the humor in Nextwave is pretty forced, but more than enough of it lands.

That issue also features Mindless Ones on skateboards with backwards baseball caps. That can forgive a lot.

Warren Ellis was once described to me as the comic equivalent of your mom forwarding you those "funny internet videos" and I can't see him as anything else when it comes to his humor.
