I meant not classic Annihilation Wave like everyone seems to be pinning for. Bendis what was in my mind, though. F***ing Bendis. 

Wouldn't that be a kick in the pants? Hey, here's a bunch of mates you have been wanting made for years... in their worst possible incarnation and the worst version of all the characters from the worst recent comic story they've been in... Enjoy!

Annihilation, Conquest, Realm of Kings, and the like drew me back into comics after an over10 year absence. If these mates aren't from those stories, and it's the Bendis versions (which made me quit reading GotG)? I don't want them, and won't buy them. That's how strong my dislike of his run on that book is.

Maybe Vance can come with an extra head and cape. Then boom! - Marvel Boy

Absolutely. If it is "modern" (at one point I considered Abnett/Lanning modern), I really hope they had enough time to make designs based off of Cates' run, but then again, I can't remember the last time Marvel minimates were released that were in an ongoing comic, especially one that is only 6 issues in...

When DST made Marvel Select GotG figures they used what I think would qualify as Bendis-era costumes (I loathe Bendis so much I tried to ignore this run) and they've made a few characters that would fit in with this team: Venom, Angela, Iron Man. That said I definitely agree with the sentiment that if it's not the 2008 team I'm not interested, excluding the current team because I'm sure there hasn't been time to get those designs ready.

Good news is I really don't think there were any characters in that Bendis series that would be new characters for minimates.

Ah, yes, valid, thank you sir! So maybe there still is a possibility for that comic, and Cosmic Ghost Rider!

Vision fits Zach’s description as well.

I think (and hope) we’re getting a supernatural wave. It would line up with the Ghost Rider Hulu stuff and Dr. Strange 2 hype.

Magik, Dormammu or Mephisto could be the second version in 10 years.

Dr. Strange and Ghost Rider could use redos.

Loki could also use a redo.

That just leaves the new characters. Daimon Hellstrom, Brother Voodoo, Vengeance, Blackheart, etc.

My fingers are crossed for:

modern Dr. Strange/modern Loki

modern Magik/Daimon Hellstrom

Ghost Rider/Brother Voodoo

BAF Blackheart

I keep forgetting we haven’t gotten a damn Blackheart. Seems like a bit of an oversight at this point.

I’m only mad at this because I want my Vance. Although I don’t remember when they announced the shows if they announced an on air date. Also it would need a Satana with her new name for the show so sadly Magik would lose out.  Maybe this is wave 80!

Two of those I'm interested in, costume choices make the others very easy to pass on. In the pictures available the designs look pretty mediocre, like a budget wave, maybe that will change with better pictures.

AGH!  DARKHAWK IS WHAT I'M HERE FOR!

Super stoked for the whole wave. What a great mix of deep fan cuts (I'm looking at you, Moondragon) with some new hotness and fun costumes.  This is exactly the kind of comic wave I like: loosely related with something for everyone.  Or most people at least.

Great job, DST.  Here's hoping it's the start of a new era!

Finally a cosmic wave! Yay! 👍

Some of the characters/costumes aren’t what I would have chosen but it’s still good. Definitely need another cosmic wave to finish up the guardians, watcher & gladiator would be nice too.

Yay for Darkhawk!! Wonder how I can kitbash that Moondragon into a classic one?

The hardest part is the green cleavage chest. You could try Polaris which is popular or if the exposure isn’t that big of a deal Marvel girl or Viper *could* work.

It seems like this is the version of the team this wave is based on, which makes some of the character choices kind of interesting, especially Angela.

I really dislike starlords mask with the hair showing. It doesn't make any sense when in space

I'm loving this wave. Star-Lord, Gamora, Cosmic Ghost Rider, and Adam Warlock look great! However, Angela is a weird choice because it looks identical to the previous release but with a different belt piece. Darkhawk looks cool but I'm not familiar with the character and Moon Dragon is whatever. Not familiar with her either. But everyone else seems pretty stoked for her so I'm glad she's being made.
