The chemistry between Miles, Kamala, & Sam was always good, but I never liked Waid's writing for kids. At a time when his Marvel work was largely really good, that stuff just felt so old man writing what he thinks kids sound like. Gave up on ANADA pretty quickly, gave up on his Champions w/ Ramos (who I really dislike, so that didn't help) even quicker. I honestly really liked the expansion of the ranks. I think giving it that X-Men/Legion of Superheroes vibe is smart. I just don't know that, from what I saw, Zub had the right idea for making it work. Though, the weird roll out on a publishing side surely didn't help. If I were relaunching Champions, I'd first give 'em a rest until, like, the spring. Then I'd get, like, Kelly Thompson or Mariko Tamaki to write a new monthly series, drawn by someone w/ strong pop art style like Leonardo Romero. Redesign all the costumes that look bad (the heck is up w/ Amadeus Cho?) into bolder, more classic looks. Include some of the popular teen mutants people don't see as much & miss. Oh, also... Launch in late April or early May. And, make one of the 2 FCBD issues a full 20-page Champions story by the same creative team, 100% standalone (not a preview for another story), new reader friendly, centered on Miles Morales & told from his perspective. Boom. You suddenly have so many new Champions fans.
