The Great Lakes Avengers are a joke. ...Oh? What? You need more? Okay... they are often a funny joke. An unofficial and unauthorized Midwest franchise team of the Avengers, the GLA emerged during the East Coast / West Coast era of the Avengers. Five heroes with weird powers and a genuine desire to serve, they failed to find much crime to fight in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. They flirted with authenticity when Hawkeye and Mockingbird started training them and were responsible for re-introducing Squirrel Girl to comics after a fourteen year hiatus. Still, these also-rans and never-weres just can't catch a break, and mostly end up playing cards and wondering if they'll ever really make it as super-heroes. So, what better way to celebrate April Fools' Day than with these...fine heroes.

Publication History X: 2018
2018 began wrapping up the Central Park era of the X-Men and setting the stage for what was to come. The wedding of Kitty and Piotr fell apart, but it opened the doors for Gambit and Rogue to finally tie the knot. The Original Five X-Men began wrapping up their affairs to finally return to their proper place in the past, while a series of limited series events revived classic characters Jean Grey and Wolverine. In fact, several limited series reintroduced characters or set up plots for the year to come, such as Legion, Multiple Man and New Mutants: Dead Souls. A transitional year at best, 2018 put effort into repositioning the X-Men and their characters for a more dynamic future.
