New Warriors Week Continues...

Why doesn't Justice have an entry in The Marvel Encyclopedia?

You should see some of the schlubs they have in this thing. Who the hell is Fred Sloan? Anyone remember Payback, the Punisher wannabe with the lame leg? I do, but that's not saying much. I remember Slapstick. Blackout has one, and he died inbetween Marvel Handbooks #2 and #15. Where's the Justice(I ask ironically)?

Night Thrasher, Nova, Namorita, Firestar, Speedball, Silhouette and Turbo all have entries, as well as the collective New Warriors entry. So why was Justice, the third oldest character, neglected? It makes no sense. He should have at least two, under Justice and under Major Victory, the completely lame name his future counterpart took. Wasn't like he killed sixty kids. He is an Avenger reservist. Like Rage, who has an entry, though under SPECIAL POWERS/ABILITIES, they have "Exposure to alien radiation granted him the ability to fly and understand the language of birds." Thus proving all black men look alike, even Falcon and Rage.

Just something that was on my mind. Anyway, in tribute to Of Course, Yeah!, I will dedicate this week to The New Warriors, and how cool they used to be. Hopefully, like Lady Cop, the blogosphere will breathe new life into the coolest team of the 90's.

That will be real Justice.

Hells to the yeah. I'm inclined to think that the New Warriors of the 90s would have been bigger than anything else out there if it weren't for the likes of Rob Liefeld and Jim Lee mucking it up.

Did you look under Marvel Boy?

It was about Noh-Varr, with the mentioning of the three guys who used the name before.

Noh-Varr my ass. The real Marvel Boy used to wrestle with the Thing. Nuff said.
