    The very first Avengers comic I remember reading, some random comic that I picked up at a 7-11’s circular comic rack, featured the Avengers fighting a dangerous alien who had once been defeated by a pacifist sect of the Kree. Libra was with the Avengers (but I didn’t know he was a villain with the Zodiac and he was just kind of helping the Avengers because Mantis was on the team with them.)

    I had no idea what was going on, but I really, really liked reading it. So hearing that they’re bringing Mantis into the MCU gets a big thumbs up for me.
