Love the strike team!! Any villain willing to see this team and still take them on is either Doom or a FOOL...but seems to be missing something...or someone...Where's Kl'rt!?!?!?!!?

Was excited to see this! Totally reminds me of the Star Masters, except without Morfex or Xenith, though Gladiator is there! Shame they raped Xenith's character development with "War of Kings" and turned her into "Strontian". As for suggestions for powerful females, you've got Stellaris, Sun Dragon, and Nova (Frankie Raye, who's back to life by then) for starters, plus I'm sure there's some strong Imperial Guards or other obscure characters.

Cover is awesome love that gladiator is there & i hope he does something great a good feat but this story is the best this year & years easy .

Actually, it's the other way around. Nova's been entrenched in this stuff long before Cap got him to drink the Kool-Aid, so he probably is technically doing detours to Earth as he patrols the galaxy to pitch in in Secret Avengers (which probably is meant to be timed after these events).As for the lack of women, I'm pretty sure it isn't as intentional as it seems, since, per the lead up stories, no truly brimming-with-cosmic-might type women are available to the Marvel Cosmic writers. Out of those that have been storied leading up to the Imperative, Crystal's probably the only featured hero with an applicable power-set. Had they not killed off Martyr (ironic, ain't it?) or Hope-related stories not led to the swiping of Rachel Summers' portion of the Phoenix Force, they'd of probably been good candidates for being in this line-up. Unfortunately, Stardust and Gladiator's cousin can't be considered heroes, but they probably could make appearances alongside the all-male line up here. Maybe the (Frankie Raye) Nova should've been prepped for addition to these cosmic crossovers, it's not like her mini wasn't timed to wrap up to coincide. Bigger problem is that Marvel doesn't seem to keep a pool of powerful enough women spread across enough stories. We've got nearly all pedestrian level heroines out here in space like Medusa, Namorita, Gamorra, Moondragon and Mantis; all arguably powerful in certain situations, but not a one can even journey through space unaided by a suit or other tech.

Apparently, to be one of the galaxy's mightiest heroes, you must be male.

This looks awesome. (Although I'd replace Ronan with Firelord)

it'll be cooler IF this momentum that involves Thonas coming back and this cancerverse deal also to bring back Captain Marvel. And i meant Mar-Vell! ;)

Is'nt Nova already busy with the Secret Avengers, now he's in this team. He probably is taking multi-tasking advice from Wolverine,lol.
