Long time listener first time poster... Just to express my disdain for Mantis. While I really like her after they brought her back in Conquest, her early appearances in Avengers was insanely awful. She seemed like a "Mary Sue" fan fic character shoehorned in that completely took over the book for way too long. Not only did she increasing have more and more over the top powers, a crazy convoluted back story and make every male character fall in love with her, but she just never fit in aestheticly. I could keep ranting, but just to show you how much Steve Englehart forced the character into Avengers he went on to force her into EVERY other project for other companies he worked for... So she's also in DCU (as Willow), the old Mirage comics (as Lorelei), Image (as Lorelie) and even shown up in a novel Englehart wrote.
