Google says: Voyager. Seems like she's popped up in previous issues in the statue, and she's coming into existence as a mysterious universe retcon the way The Sentry was previously

She even dresses like a Rule 63 Sentry.

Hopefully, we'll find out her origin in the upcoming prequel series: Avengers: No Retreat.

Voyager. We saw that she was somehow retconned in as a founding Avenger in the Marvel Legacy one-shot.

Not surprising. Voyager has never been consistent with it's continuity and Retcons were common, even when they began having a grasp of what they wanted the show to be, you would still have the character's characterization be different from one episode to the other to the point they would take wildly different positions on the same issue.
it was this or a joke about how season 7 was obsessed with Nostalgia.

Okay. given modern comics obsession with Nostalgia, bringing back old characters who noone remembers/cares for while pretending they were the greatest ever. canonize old What Ifs.../elseworld stories, and a looooong history of going back to the well, I assumed this was some old, obscure character i hadn't heard of before, not helped by the fact her statue desgin... looks familiar, as if I had seen it before but can't put my finger on why. Maybe it is because it looks like something that could realistically have been made back then... or it is so incredibly generic that it blends with a gazillion old superheroine designs.

but no, apparently this is indeed a new character named Victorie Vector, A.K.A Voyager (assuming it is not revealed to be an old character... Newsrama money is on either Valeria Richard or golden age character Sun Girl).

Huh, pretty weird that they're having a big Avengers event and the only founder on the table (in theory) is Jan.

Hank - Dead/Ultron (Is he still in Alaska/Canada after Secret War?)
Cap - On Ice (Unless this is taking place out of sync with his book)
Tony - Just crawled out of a tank (I guess he might show up, but that'd jive weird with the timing of his book)
Thor (Odinson) - I guess he's around, but he hasn't been showing up much on Midgard lady.
Bruce - Dead (for the moment).

And I'm guessing that Jan just ran off before this other 'founder' showed up? Convenient.

Curious that out of all the reservists, the only one seemingly called up was Lightning. Surely there's more reservists on planet? Wonder if that's intentional manipulation or convenient writing.

Also, something that just struck me is how many of the early members are suddenly active again. Hercules, Wanda, Pietro, Simon... all characters that were largely absent/shelved during the Bendis books... it's nice to see them back.

Hercules was on Waid's Avengers and Pietro and Wanda were in Uncanny Avengers, so it's been a definite point to bring some of the older Avengers back into prominence.

I'm assuming we'll see a lot more of the reservists getting called in. I want to see if they remember Sandman was an Avengers reservist. (Who am I kidding, Waid and Al Ewing are two of the three writers, of course they remember Sandman joined the Avengers.)

Naw, Jan got hit with random 'plot device to remove characters' like Vision and a bunch of other characters did. She's frozen solid. Its why Vision is blue and probably why other reservists didn't show.

-Hank - Dead/Ultron (Is he still in Alaska/Canada after Secret Empire?)-

Think Hanktron's involved in that Infinity Countdown thing, so he's probably off in space.

I'm surprised it's taken this long for someone to bring Living Lightning back. He covers multiple diversities by being Hispanic and openly gay, he was created by Roy and Dann Thomas, and he's literally made out of electricity, which is a cool visual gimmick.

Can we just find-and-replace Inferno with Living Lightning, please?

Lightning deserves better than to be turned into an Inhuman

Great. Another new Marvel hero "who's been there all along." She'll get along fabulously with the Sentry and Blue Marvel.

And Whatsherface from last year (seriously, Waid, you JUST did this)

They can have a crossover with Triumph over at DC.

"When we REALLY needed you, you'd be back."
"Once an Avenger..."
"So where were you during the first Secret Wars? The second? The first superhero Civil War? The second? That time we all died to stop Onslaught, and the team disbanded? That time we all disassembled because Scarlet Witch lost control, and half of us died? What about that thing with Korvac when most of us literally died? How about when every single fucking universe collided with another and reality itself was destroyed? What, those weren't enough for you?"
"But you didn't really need--"
"So the Earth has been stolen. Big deal. NOW you show up?"
"I was--"
"Whatever, Ms. Plot Device."
