I think both of those locations work really well for Tony given they are well known for all software/tech industry based there.


i'm pretty sure Fraction had the Stark Resilient offices in the Pacific Northwest as well.

I was just pointing out that the "branching out" did not equate into sales.

And Moon Knight's cancellation happened in the past, so it WAS canceled.

but i never said that "branching out" equals sales, just that marvel had been branching out. and as i said i said that Moon Knight WAS in LA.. not IS in la.. i'm not stupid i know the book isn't being published anymore...

Well, depending on the members of that team 3-6 characters could easily be the equivalent of a small army. That was always one of my biggest problems with the whole Initiative. I didn't like the idea of 50 superhero teams basically being on the same payroll. :smt102

Not really, I was just bringing it up to support e_galston's opinion that Marvel has been attempting to move their heroes out of New York.

I thought it was cool that they showed the Spartax attacking London rather than New York in Guardians Of The Galaxy #1

Right after Siege Cap asked Diamondback to run the 50 State Initiative... and they re-instated Prodigy (the Slinger not the X-Man) to run the 50 State Initiative during Fear Itself. It became a voluntary thing though.
