But I expect that once I really started rearranging my teams. But I actually do think Fringes could be an exciting team to read about. There's a dark side to the team, but there's also enough goodness in everyone to counter that I think. And I really think Emma is one of the more interesting characters in the X-Men stories recently. She's got a ton of history and brings a really unique flavor to the leadership role.
Since I just started reading comics more in depthly, I'm actually hoping to find more out about her and I feel the same way about Husk. I think her family dynamic is interesting.
At some point, I also hope to get into the DC Universe more and find out more about certain characters I drafted as well as others. In this case, Connor Hawke.
I think the "Fringes" is hurt by having a lot of "fringe" characters. I mean, I've read Runaways and I couldn't care less about Nico. Fray's not a mainstream book. I think I've read most everything Husk's been in and I couldn't give a shit about her. Half your team is pretty obscure or undeveloped in comics, and (and I'm sorry, Dev, I'm not insulting you, I'm just pointing out what I believe to be the demographic of Buffy and teenage lesbian stories) sort of themed towards a younger female audience than we have with this group.
Of course I went and added Wildfire and Echo to my 3rd team because I thought they might draw me votes, Echo being from New Avengers and Wildfire being a popular Legionnaire. So what do I know?
I'm not even complaining about the votes. The Soldiers of Fortune is one of the top teams in this and I didn't even expect Fringes to get a wild card. But I do think if they put this team together in an actual comic series, it could be a pretty interesting read.
And I'm not sure where the teenage lesbian story is here.
Well I was just speaking more broadly to the Runaways book. I remember 2 stories Sister Grimm was involved in from my reading. One was the overall "Runaway" story about teenagers being all angsty because their parents are evil and the other was Lucy in the Sky's attraction to Sister Grimm that the book really dragged out before revealing that one of them was gay and the other was not and not interested. My point is just that Runaways was clearly not a book themed for the same person who reads Punisher. Or even the average comic fan in general. It was a book targeted to a younger audience and printed on a "Tsunami" line intended to draw in manga fans.
And again, I'm not taking a swipe at you. I read Runaways V1 and enjoyed it. It was good writing. I just clearly wasn't the target demographic.
