Back in January, Terminus Legion, the awesomely named Supporter’s Group for the new Atlanta MLS franchise – whatever it was going to be called – offered up its suggestions for the team’s name. They were pretty good: Bantams, Black Harts, Empire, Firebirds, Kings, Locomotives, Railrunners, Resurgents. At the very least, they had tie-ins the region. A rail hub. A resurgent city after Sherman’s March. The jewel of the south. Etc.
On Tuesday, the nascent club officially unveiled its new colors, crest and team name, the latter of which Sports Illustrated broke last month. And the logo looks like it was stolen from The Avengers Brand Cereals™ or… something.
