All are descendants of Captain Marvel and his three Lieutenant Marvels. ┬áSpeaking of Marvel, the FF has the er…. the FF, a newly-thawed Captain America had Rick Jones and the Jones boy had his Teen Brigade who in turn practically invented the internet by way of ham radios. Iron Man has Tony Stark’s Entourage (even the Stark PR director had his own spotlight issue!). ┬áMy favorite of all the fill-in/substitute-teacher type hero groups is without a doubt Thor’s reliably violent chorus-The warriors 3!! Fandral┬áthe well groomed, Hogun┬áthe Grouchy┬áand Volstagg┬áthe Menu that Walks like a Man. ┬áThese three Asgardian stalwarts always make for ┬ásolidly sustained sub-plots which in turn makes for really fun comics. ┬áThis new TP collects all the Warriors 3 most important adventures and is sure to be a hoot for everyone except for Hogun, who is–alas– rather Grim.
