The new arc on Superman has reminded me of one of the scenes I really liked from early in New Avengers, right before the "Civil War" crossover blew the status quo to hell again.

I'm on record as saying that my biggest disappointment with Quesada's era of Marvel is that he's come up with some genuinely interesting new directions for characters or teams, only to immediately double back or veer off when a big crossover jumps in. The first two dozen issues or so of New Avengers is a good example there, of a potentially cool plot idea that's never been touched upon again.

He tried updating his costume in the 90s to a black leather jacket and red shirt thing, don't think it went over too well.

I think the fact that he doesn't use a codename or a costume anymore is a great growth for the character personally. He's not a super hero per se, he's a street level guy who isn't afraid to step up to bigger threats when they arise.

Oh, I have nothing against it being character growth. If any character is most suited for how he's been done, then it's Cage.

I just mean more in the sense when he runs around with the other Avengers. It's a minor complaint, at best, honestly.

I honestly think it'd be cool to have a side team of Avengers who [never] wear costumes. Batroc or some poon starts messing up everyone's dates at a French restaurant in San Diego, and some motherfucker casually stands up, pulls a bow from his attache case and fires a hundred arrows into his ass. By the time people realized 'Oh shit - that's Hawkeye!' he'd be gone.
