You’ll Believe Avengers Can Retcon – Avengers #676 and Champions #16 Spoilers

Posted by January 17, 2018 Comment

Today sees the publication of Avengers #676, the second chapter of No Surrender, giving us the newly retconned history of Voyager, now suddenly one of the founding members of The Avengers, who stayed with the team into the late sixties even as others left and then was thought killed. Until she returned in Avengers #675, and appeared on the founding members statue in Marvel Legacy #1.

Today’s comic by Mark Waid, Al Ewing, Jim Zub and Pepe Larraz starts to look at that history with scenes remembered… with some deep dives int Marvel continuity. Such as Avengers #70…

Which originally looked like this:

Looks like Victory, The Electromagnetic Man was also invented as an opponent for Voyager. Will we see him again as well? Is this Chekhov’s Victory? While Voyager was present for a number of classic scenes such as Avengers #58…

But, it seems, only by getting Ant Man’s lines….

Even an Android can cry. Or, according to today’s Champions, sneeze…

Crying, sneezing, what is going on?
