Let us take a moment to remember Janet van Dyne, the Wasp. 1963-2016.
Killed by movie synergy.
>posting a picture from the cartoon when talking about the comics version
Maybe we should wait until the comic comes out or when we get some actual information.
Stop with the pre-emptive mourning. She probably isn't dead even if she gets replaced.
She appears next month in All-New-Not-Exactly-Wolverine, doesn't she!?
Also, Bendis allready killed her for dumb in Secret Invasion and ressurected her witht the power of hamfisting. Can't really mourn for that.
So, will we ever find out what happened to Wasp's daughter that Kang the Conqueror kidnaped?
I bet she regrets lusting for him now.
So basically she does nothing different than Pym did for years, i.e. letting others take his costumes and moving on to something different(with the option of coming back)? Not the worst thing to do.
Sure Marvel has, some (out-of-continuity) specials and a costume might change here and there, but do they really care that much for the movies? Compare movie Captain America to the current comics. Compare the Comic-Avengers-Lineup with the movies. Compare Movie-Nova-Corps from GotG with Comic-Nova.
I think they mostly let the writers do their stuff and if some hack like Bendis goes to get "heavily inspired" by the movies, they go with it, but I think besides costume changes, Marvel isn't THAT big on movie synergy.
If at all it's the other way around: They'd rather have new stories that can be translated to movies, than bringing the movies to the comics.
>They'd rather have new stories that can be translated to movies
This is a bit of a danger since it may put creators in the mindset to intentionally limit themselves.
But yeah otherwise I agree with you.
>Forces Wasp to sign Earth's articles of surrender
>Kidnaps her daughter
What does Kang have against Wasp?
Both DC and Marvel are guilty of it.
Synergy is why both Batman and Superman are getting status quo'd at #50, in time for BatmanvSuperman.
Same as why Superior Spider-man ended so it could relaunch with an Electro story in time for ASM2.
Her only highlight was the cartoon you posted anyway.
I think some of the New 52's guilty of that as well.
If only because why the fuck would they adapt the new 52 justice league origin and new 52 suicide squad for their cinematic universe.
And of that, this and the boob animation error were the only highlights.
Other than Harley (who is now a hugely popular character in her own right for many casual "fans", and for true casuals associates with Joker who, thanks to ledger, is massive), its full of traditional Suicide Squadies
I'm not some dang marvel nerd who watches avenger cartoons all the time.
Give me some darn info, man.
Call it quality over quantity.
Frankly Im just mad someone never took the time to make her not suck like they did Sue. All early Sue did was stand around and have Reed explain shit to her blond ass.
I bet I could make a good Wasp story.
I'm impressed that a White woman is getting her identity stolen and her i was sure that was reserved just for men.
So what will be ANW's gimmick
A strong independent woman who uses tumblr and and blogs her adventures.
Can someone explain to me what's going on?
Hank and Jan have a kid? I'm sure I've heard both of them independently mention how during their relationship they both agreed not to have kids.
And are they bringing in Hope? Not that qt Henry Pym Jr from Next Avengers?
