I just read the following:


 QUOTE:
Marvel has found the cast of its New Warriors TV show...

Vayntrub’s delightful nut eater/butt kicker will be one of two leads in the 10-episode first season, alongside Baby Daddy’s Derek Theler as Mr. Immortal.


Mister Immortal? Really??

JB has made so many great contributions to comicdom; Mister Immortal is good, but far from his best. When do the NextMen get their due?

I hope JB gets a nice check out of it, tho.

So, how many people will accuse me of stealing Mr. Immortal from Captain Jack (TORCHWOOD)?

I'm not looking forward to this New Warriors show, which Marvel describes on their website:

"“Marvel’s New Warriors” is about that time in your life when you first enter adulthood and feel like you can do everything and nothing at once — except in this world, bad guys can be as terrifying as bad dates"
 
Probably going to be another POWERLESS.

I don't get how you can connect that description, which seems reasonable given the series and the audience of Free Form, with Powerless.

It suggests a glib, casual approach to the genre. Don't get me wrong, I love comedic superheroes (Giffen's Justice League and JB's She-Hulk). But you've got to respect the basic conventions of the genre to make it work. Equating bad guys to bad dates is not a good start.

Is this the series that Squirrel Girl is going to be in too?  I saw a headline that she'd been cast, but the site kept asking me to disable my popup blocker to view the article so I skipped it.

Joe, I get where you are coming from. Perhaps if bad dates had been equated with bad guys, instead? I see, now, where the description lessons the impact of one rather than increasing, in a metaphorical sense, the impact of the other. 

Still, comparing anything to Powerless is just cruel at this point! Oh that was awful.

It would be good if the New Warriors show turned out to be decent. The New Warriors is a favorite of mine in my late teens.
