As we head ever closer to Earth’s Mightiest Heroes reforming in Avengers 5 and 6, speculation is increasing over which characters will form the founding members of the MCU‘s New Avengers team. While the OG lineup — Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Hulk, Hawkeye, and Black Widow — is going to be tough to top in terms of icon status, there is one way in which the rebooted roster can beat out their predecessors. And it’s just an added bonus that it’s bound to make misogynist manbabies everywhere furious.
A new rumor has emerged pointing to Sam Wilson forming the New Avengers in Captain America: New World Order. As @NewRockstars shared, the prospective lineup of the next six leading Avengers goes: Sam Cap, Shang-Chi, Captain Marvel, Ant-Man, Black Panther (Shuri), and She-Hulk. And what is it that’s most notably different about this lineup? Half of them are women, which would be a huge improvement on the 2012 team.
