Who drew that middle pick of the Scarlett Spider? Daaaamn that is poor.  It looks like an elementary school kids pick.

Great list.  Dick Grayson also deserves honorable mention for filling in for Batman.

LOL! I was thinking it was Leifeld but he doesn't have enough pouches and no big guns.

It looks as if someone was drawing him in the new animated series style....

Scarlett Spider looks like a cutout from a cartoon or something. This is a great list and yeah, kikstad, DG should be on this list. Too bad none of the Thor replacements made it on the list. I just wish Marvel would give Bucky more page time as Cap in the book. Seems like there is more Falcon and Sharon in the books then there is of anyone else.

I haven't been reading comics in a while but I figured they would have had Steve Rodgers risen from the dead by now.  How long will that play out?  Until the movie probably. 

My fav replacement was when Walker took over for Rodgers.  He was so freaking crazy/insane he was actually KILLING the bad guys.  He flipped after they killed his parents if I'm remembering correctly.  It was such a shock at the time the way he reacted.  A fun read I still remember it.  Though I still remember the climax to Rodgers getting his shield back from Walker was a let down.  332-350 I think that whole story line took place.

You forgot about the Flash( Barry Allen/Wally West/Bart Allen).  Who is the current Flash right now?  I stopped buying single issues a few years ago and haven't kept up with the trades.

Hobbs, you are correct.  John Walker went apeshit crazy and started by literally tearing some members of the Watchdogs terrorist group apart.  The Red Skull worked to drive him even crazier.  Walker continued on a murder spree for a while, until Steve Rogers in the guise of "The Captain" finally beat his ass and took back the mantle from the Commission on Superhero Affairs (I think that was the name of the government group that originally dethroned Rogers).

And now, the guy who started as The SuperPatriot and then became Captain America for a while, is serving on Omega Flight last I read.  Yes, the Canadian superteam.  Huh?  I think that was worth mention as a hell of an outcome for  a scab superhero.

Other honorable mentions are certainly Wally West (who is where now?  I'm not sure, but I'd love for someone to tell me), Dick Grayson (we all know that Didio is going to bring Bruce Wayne back in a year and Grayson will be sent back to the minor league farm team in Bludhaven), and let's not forget Connor Hawke replaced Oliver Queen as Green Arrow for a while. 

Also, though not an A-list hero, Bill Foster did replace Hank Pym as Giant Man for a while... at least until Reed Richards's Thor-clone blasted a hole through Foster's chest big enough to drive a truck through.
