Marvel has certainly been really good about getting fans excited and talking about the new team members on their upcoming Secret Avengers series, haven't they? Maybe I just haven't been paying enough attention, but what I have really liked about these announcements is that the team they seem to have put together is so eclectic-- and I really didn't see it coming. We announced that Beast would be joining War Machine on the new team, and now we have two more Secret Avengers to add to the list: Valkyrie and Moon Knight. Seriously, who would put Valkyrie with Moon Knight? It feels like they are pulling characters from all the different corners of the Marvel Universe and getting them onto the same team-- I kind of love it. Are you excited about the upcoming book?
