Remember The Avengers of old? How about The Avengers of right now? You know, The Avengers with Wolverine and Spider-Man on the team.
Depends on who you ask. Right now and in the future, some writer's Avengers team is always gonna be somebody's favorite Avengers team. There will be a character someone else believes shouldn't be an Avenger, that character will be someone's favorite Avenger.
The point is, there's no true Avengers team or Avenger... or is there?
Using the old criteria of The Avengers "seven-members-to-the-roster" rule, Second Printers, name your seven member Avengers roster. It doesn't have to be the mightiest or the newest or the darkest, just yours.
Keep it to Marvel characters and you know what? I'll even throw in Jarvis, free of charge.
Captain America (Steve Rogers)
Namor, The Sub-Mariner
Niko (if I had my way, formerly of The Runaways)
