I had some hope that an ongoing Katana series was going to lead to the introduction of The Outsiders into the New 52, but it doesn't look like that is in the cards just yet. I really loved the original line up of the team as presented by co-creators Mike W. Barr and Jim Aparo and it would be great to see them all together again.
Marvel's Secret Wars was a cool comic to read, as we were seeing all of Marvel's biog characters in one sweeping story. These days, Marvel has so many team books and the lines between Avenger, X-Man and solo hero have been blurred so much that seeing all their characters interacting is hardly unique any more. It's going to be hard to recapture some of that earlier magic.
