Le scénariste David Walker (Power Man & Iron Fist) poursuit sa présentation des héros populo en prenant en main une nouvelle équipe de Vengeurs qui fleure bon la protestation sociale : Occupy Avengers.
À la tête de l’initiative, on retrouve Œil de Faucon ; héros qui s’est bâti une solide réputation d’homme du peuple en protégeant son quartier dans la série Hawkeye de Matt Fraction & David Aja.
David Walker collabore pour l’occasion avec le dessinateur Gabriel Hernandez Walta qui viendra juste de conclure sa prestation impeccable sur l’excellente série The Vision.
Le premier membre à rejoindre Hawkeye au sein de son équipe Occupy Avengers est Red Wolf.
[quote]Red Wolf is an interesting character to play with. There have been different versions over the years, but this one is fairly new, so it has been interesting getting into what makes him tick. For readers that don’t know Red Wolf, he’s a Native American, who was transported through time from the 1800s to now. In his own time, he was a badass, fighting for justice; now he’s a badass fighting for justice, but completely out of his element.
I drew a lot of inspiration from Captain America/Steve Rogers. I’m developing Red Wolf as this guy who has his smartphone with him at all times – he’s constantly looking things up, trying to learn about the world he stuck in. As with Clint, there’s an aspect of Red Wolf that is lost, and looking to find his way. What is really going to be fun will be when the other team members start to show up.[/quote]

Description: Super heroes – they’re a privileged class. Doing what they want, when they want and suffering none of the consequences. They have no regard for the ordinary people who are left behind to suffer in their wake. Something has to change. The question remains: Who will stand up for the little guy? There is a man. If you can find him, and if he believes in your cause – he and his friends will put things right. Some call them outlaws, rebels, vigilantes. To others, they’re heroes, through and through.
[quote]I knew from the very beginning that I wanted to do a story dealing with water rights, so it made sense to have some sort of water-related villain. I put together this list of villains that included characters like Hydro-Man and Water Wizard. I didn’t want the water-based villain to be the main villain, though. I wanted them to be the henchman or the stooge of this more grounded sort of villainy involving corporate greed.
Now I find myself looking at each story and asking, “Is there a way I can do this where we’ve got this villain that has these fantastic powers, but what’s going on is not necessarily their plan?”[/quote]
