Default New Warriors cancelled :(

While it didn't set the MU on fire, it had a good premise and I will miss it. The dark subplots behind Speedball and Hummingbird were interesting as well as the possible Namorita return as Watersnake, it just wasn't enough. Some of it felt a tad dragged out and written for the trade. I just wish Fabian Nicieza was able to take a crack at it before they axed the book.

It's a shame, I loved the hell outta this book.
It was also a way to build up Sam's relationships outside of his book.

I kind of expected it. Sadly, when your one "name character" is the new Nova (who I gather is also not setting the world ablaze) and a bunch of characters who either cannot support a book or have had theirs cancelled, it's a recipe for disaster. And also, it's too far into the run to have not really addressed the "big hook", of this book (or what it should have been)......you have a team of heroes taking on name last used by a group (well, not last used...there was another relaunch after Civil War, I think) who had their name dragged through the mud by destroying a town and getting a bunch of kids killed. I mean, imagine how the normally non-plussed citizens of the MU should be reacting to THAT. They'd be so hated that the X-Men would find it extreme. But this book took the team and hid them on a mountain. So when they pass into the history books, no one will notice.

I wanted to like the book but was really turned off by the first issue (or did I read the first two)?

Still I'd seen it had been getting better reactions online so I hoped it'd find its audience before the axe fell.
