Flying, Starhawk, then, from left to right, Captain Charlie-27, Yondu Udonta, Martinex T’naga, and Major Vance Astro (also known as Major Victory). Not the current team, but they could be in a movie too.
OK. I watched this. Kubrickian in it’s simplicity.

The meme of the JLA in the seventies. A member gets “sick”, “tired”, or “sick and tired” of being in the group and wants out.
MARVEL ANNOUNCES MARK WAID’S S.H.I.E.L.D. AND MORE AT NEXT BIG THING PANEL
Marvel really likes to spread its announcements around at San Diego Comic-Con, and that’s never more evident than at the publisher’s final panel of the weekend, which it calls ‘Next Big Thing’, possibly because Columbo has a prior claim on using the phrase, ‘One More Thing,’ just as you’re getting ready to leave.
The major new announcement out of the Next Big Thing panel is that Marvel is finally going to publish a new S.H.I.E.L.D. book (which I’ll henceforth refer to as SHIELD, because no-one has time for that much punctuation). Mark Waid will write the new series, with Carlos Pacheco on issue one and a rotating team of artists thereafter. Agent Phil “Cheese” Coulson will be the book’s lead, and each issue will tell a self-contained story.
Never stopped Steve Jobs… ;-)
One of the best examples of artistic integrity on a corporate scale.
No matter how many times I see this, I never fail to be impressed by that last sentence.
I feel like the most important line in this is “These depictions were wrong then and are wrong today.” Most often a statement like this is used to simply cover, to gloss over, as if being a product of one’s time is an excuse or defense rather than a partial explanation.
