The search was tough. The contestants were all well-qualified and enthusiastic. Any on the list would have made a good addition to the team. Unfortunately, we didn't have room for them all, but we got what we needed.
I can't wait for them to get started.
It's my genuine pleasure to introduce the newest members of our team: Bucky Barnes, Scott Lang, Vision, Spider-Man, and Scarlet Witch! Please read their bios below and give them a warm welcome.
My name is Bucky Barnes, though I’m still trying to figure out who exactly that is. I used to be a guy from Brooklyn, but things took a turn for the worse. After a long stint as an assassin, I’m back in the 21st century, hoping to make things right. I’m doing so with the help of Sky Destrian, a writer of many genres with too many ideas and an unhealthy obsession with superheroes (it’s kind of creepy). You can find her at her blog and Twitter. If she’s not there, she’s probably binge-reading YA books, brushing up on her knowledge of Alexander Hamilton, or trying haphazardly to save the world.
P.S. - Please don’t tell Steve I’m out of cryo.
Hey. I'm Scott Lang. I'm more commonly known as Ant-Man, though I didn't pick the name. Since I became an Avenger, I've had to go undercover, and these days, you can find me writing all sorts of sarcasm-filled novels, most often fantasy and science fiction.
My other persona is a teenage girl who writes under the pen name of Charlotte Aday. She enjoys planning (fictional) heists, watching far too much Star Trek, and asking vaguely philosophical questions, along with venturing into the brand-new world of blogging.
I am Vision. I am an android. I can use Thor's hammer. I have powers I don't entirely understand but I am learning about them. Writing is one of those powers.
My writer form is Katie Nichols, who is a much better cook than I am but still very ready suggest ordering a pizza. When not writing, she enjoys Disney movies, novels by Maggie Stiefvater or Brandon Sanderson, and playing Minecraft. She also has a blog and Twitter.
I am Wanda Maximoff, the one they call Scarlet Witch. My brother and I survived Hydra’s experiments because we had each other. Now he’s gone, and I have to find a way to keep going. Sometimes the weight of responsibility that comes with my powers is too much. But I do what I can.Spider-Man and the person behind the mask will introduce themselves at a later time.
When I am not helping the Avengers I write YA as Anna Imber. I use my mind reading powers to understand empathy and write better characters. I am fascinated by what makes and unmakes a person, so I push my characters to their utmost limits to see what hidden powers they hold. You can follow my writing persona on her blog.
With these new additions to the team, we hope to shoot many more writing posts, Twitter chats, and other fun things your way. I hope you're as excited as I am.
