This column has always been there for lesser known, forgotten, or frequently recharacterized superheroes from various ages. Today, though, I’ll be discussing Amadeus Cho, former Mastermind Excello and future Hulk.

(Editor’s Note: Let’s all be kind to Jimmy and pretend it is the week of May 20th. He really does try very hard to get his work done on time.

A so-so crossover written by Brian Michael Bendis and drawn by Leinil Francis Yu, the big death at the end was Janet VanDyne, the Wasp, on-again, off-again lover and ex-wife of Hank “1,000 Codenames” Pym.
