Post-Endgame MCU Team Theory

I've got this crazy idea.
I think Marvel left the playing field open in the post "Avengers:Endgame" landscape for a new super-team.

Back in the pre-Netflix days, there was a super team called "The Defenders."

It's not much of a spoiler to disclose that Dr. Strange has come out intact after Endgame (they've announced a sequel movie).
So right out of the gate you have the first member of this team up as you can tell from the comic cover.

The second member, who always has trouble being in Marvel films due to rights issues with Universal is Mark Ruffalo's Hulk.

He is a little different after the movie, but still available and would be a fantastic addition.

The odd-man out in the cover is Namor the Submariner.
Marvel has claimed that they wanted to make a version of this for years, but it was buried in the Fox deal because he was always lumped in with the Fantastic Four.

I have never liked the idea and now that DC has their Aquaman series rolling, I think the boat was missed, but there are some whispers that he might be introduced as an antagonist to Black Panther in his next film. This makes sense, but like a good anti-hero, Namor (like Hulk) could easily work with the team dynamics of these guys.

Finally, we get to the last piece and one of the more interesting parts about the Defenders. After these three, other characters became a rotating roster of characters. Silver Surfer eventually joins and the entire roster changed out at multiple points.
However, the MCU has left one CRUCIAL character who was nearly always part:
Now, doesn't that sound like a blast? She already has a relationship with Hulk. If you didn't or could not use Namor, find another NEW character and off you go!

I would love to see Tessa Thompson playing against these guys and whoever they could eventually introduce... and maybe even bring a TV Defender over like Luke Cage (who was also a legit Defender at several points).

So what do you think? Possible?

Slow Death or Rebirth for Myspace?

  Are we really watching the slow inevitable death of Myspace? With the integration with Facebook complete and  the push towards what appears to be a mobile only function , isn't it time to call this one? One report says that Myspace is making $200 million less this year. They are functionally giving up on Myspace Music , which was always their bread and butter. Without the music tie in, why would people BOTHER with Myspace? I'm talking about it because my wife's band has used every medium known to mankind to promote themselves online and Myspace has been nothing but dead weight from the very beginning. Only bands and their most ardent fans go there. The rest are on Facebook.  There is talk of selling Myspace, but who in their right mind would consider it? This will have some interesting implications for bands down the road. Many use Myspace as their de facto website, just pushing their domain name onto the customizable site. Now apparently, Reverbnation , a North Carolin

Being a Parent

While back, I wrote a post on Father's day about being a father and how being a parent is a job. I wistfully look back as I look forward to another school year quickly approaching and the evidence of my "work" is becoming less and less my handiwork. Our youngest has just moved on to middle school. Josh has moved into high school and the oldest has graduated from high school and about "start" her life. We've had a tacit arrangement with the kids. We do NOT want boomerang kids coming back to haunt us. So they have always been told, they are staying with us until they are REALLY ready to go out and that includes the joke that college has become. Sadly, despite the fact that I have spent a good chunk of my career working in higher education, I know that it is a folly to think that sending a child off to college is preparing them for much other than to have a lifetime of loans. Thankfully, Amanda has gotten the message. She has a plan to go to local c
