Are the New Warriors Returning to the Marvel Universe?

There are rumors swirling about that Marvel is going to bring back the New Warriors. I hope this turns out to be true. I liked the New Warriors. In an age before the Young Avengers or the Runaways, the New Warriors was the closest thing Marvel had to the Teen Titans (if you don’t count all of those X-books filled with teen mutants waiting to be killed in the next big X-Men crossover).

While most of the original members are still kicking around, I’d like to see a new roster of young heroes take the New Warriors name.

Nova is probably a given (especially since the rumors state the New Warriors’ return will happen in an issue of his series).

I’d like to see Eli Bradley (the former Young Avenger known as Patriot) back in action. He has the experience to act as field commander for this collection of young heroes.

Also no stranger to the world of superheroing, Anya Corazon, aka Spider-Girl, would add a certain amount of name recognition to the team.

The new White Tiger (Ava Ayala) and the new Power Man (Victor Alvarez) will add additional muscle–not to mention a bit of cross-media synergy.

And, to add a little bit of mystical might, former Runaway Nico Minoru.

Of course, the very first arc should be “The Search for Nomad.”
