I'm a well read grad student who's bluntly honest about all things, although I try to be most honest about myself.
The Freelancers are young, super powered, bored, and want money. They are in it for themselves, and screw anyone who gets in their way - and thus they are the opposites of The Champions. And when they try to drag the Champions' names through the mud, the young heroes have to stick up for themselves, without causing further harm to their name, and without betraying their own principles - the same principles that caused Nova, Spider-Man and Ms. Marvel to split from the Avengers. So when Vision offers to help, The Champions decide. They refuse to fight dirty - and while this gets them out of one jam, it proves to get them in another, far stickier situation, too.
Hopefully, they'll be able to fix things in the end, but until then? Well, things aren't looking too bright for these heroes. I love how they stick together, refuse help that feels dirty in any way to them, and get things done without breaking or even bending their owl morals.
This is hopeful, and inspiring, and just what the world - worlds, both Marvel and real - need right now.
