Marvel's recent reveals about the "New" Avengers hasn't been too surprising. Yesterday we sort of got a new New Avenger when it was revealed that Jessica Jones would be putting the spandex back on. Today, things get completely crazy.
Say it with me, "What the heck is going on?" I'm sure "heck" isn't the first word that might come to mind. After the shock settled, I have to say, I like this. Finally we're getting a completely new member that is really going to change the concept of the New Avengers. If I recall correctly, the Thing has never fully been an Avenger. Reed and Sue have been briefly but I don't think Ben or Johnny have. Now he's going to be an Avenger?
The Thing is my favorite character in the FF. I'm not sure what this means for his position over there. I suppose if Wolverine can be on the New Avengers, X-Men and X-Force, there's no reason that Ben can't be on the New Avengers and Fantastic Four. Now just picture what the teams going to be like with the Thing, Spider-Man and Wolverine. I think the fun-factor just got turned up considerably!
