Who’s Your Favorite Avenger Still Sitting on the Bench?

Which former Avenger do you want to see back in the ranks of “Earth’s Mightiest Heroes”? Who’s ready for prime time, but stuck on the graveyard shift?

C'Mon, Marvel! This man deserves to be riding shotgun in a Quinjet!

The Avengers have undertaken quite a journey over the past 7 years, and all signs point to them continuing to sit atop the Marvel empire for years to come. While the House of Ideas is drumming up excitement for Avengers and Secret Avengers.

Since Hawkeye and Mockingbird have popped up in the recent promos and have been active members of New Avengers over the last year, I find my thoughts wandering to one Dane Whitman, the Black Knight. He was always a favorite of mine, culminating with his suffering the curse of the Ebony Blade when Namor used it to slay a mutated Marinna. But, since then, I find him criminally used — rocking out the leather jacket and the lightsabre/sun sword in the 90s andĀ becoming a working joe in “Heroes for Hire.” Now, he’s cool in MI-13 (which I assume he’ll still be a part of), but this guy deserves another shot at the big time. I want to see him one breath away from Avengers chairmanship.

    I LOVE the Black Knight! I can’t figure out for the life of me why Marvel doesn’t do more with him. I mean, they give Doctor Voodoo his own title (be it short lived) but not Dane?! Come on! And every time they do a Black Knight mini or special (minus that one four issue mini they did) it’s usually ALWAYS his freakin’ origin story! Alright, Marvel, we KNOW Black Knight’s origin, ok? Give us something more! Love him!

    Dane is a favourite of mine too…but I think my absolute favourite who is still sitting on the bench is Photon (Monica Rambeau)! C’mon–put her back in the Avengers already!!!
