I was inspired to ask this question after rereading my own personal choice, Avengers Unplugged 3. Black Widow and Crystal get dressed up in miniskirts and have a "girls' night out" at a male strip club called, uh, "Bimboyz." Coincidentally enough, it's hero night at the club, and at one point Crystal attracts the attention of a male stripper dressed as Quicksilver.
As a fantastic article on the Avengers Assemble website points out, the comic hits its nadir when Black Widow says "You go, girl!" to Crystal.
Avengers Unplugged as a whole was truly, horribly, abominably bad, and #3 get my vote for the worst Avengers issue ever.
What's yours?

It's a toss-up between Avengers:The Crossing and the Timeslide one-shots. The whole "Iron Man was evil the whole time" and "Teen Tony" thing left a bad taste in my mouth.

The Image-inspired new costumes didn't help matters either. *gah*

Avengers Vol. 3#76 by Geof Johns was really bad, and a bit confusing. A big what the heck deal with the Jack of Hearts' death. All of Larry Hama's issues come in second. \:\-\)

A landmark issue and there is no team... hooray!

Heroes Reborn. All of them. Vol 2 issues 1-13. I stopped after 6 and Byrne stole the next couple or read a friends copy. Maybe that means I can only say issues 1-8. But I include the whole run out of disgust. That person who let me read his books is no longer my friend, for different reasons, but thinking back - a real friend would have with-held the issues and not let me see them. Just the thought makes me want to call him up out of the blue and de-friend him all over again.
Hated it from the word "go." Stuck around far too long.
I'm a die-hard completionist, and that series was given away to a kid at a comic store one day by me (well, the issues that I had at the time).
Pile O' Ass. I didnt much care for any of the Heroes Reborn titles at all - FF's run was only okay by me (save for the Jim Lee art) - but the Avengers in particular were poor, each issue successfully becoming more unreadable than the last.

Well there was by the end of the issue. One of the most bizarre Avengers teams ever, granted, but an Avengers team nonetheless.

I mean, honestly, there had been no team for months previous, and they used the issue to re-assemble the team. I feel that was a pretty good use of a landmark.

Damn, I'm trying to remember the fifth member of that team... Steve, Reed, Sue, Gilgamesh, and... who else? Bah. Time to hit up Google.

Thor was the fifth member. That whole period post-Stern was a severe letdown.

That one could be one of the top5 of this list along with posssibly 145-146...

It interrupted Perez's exciting maiden voyage with Avengers.
It introduced a generic assassin that somehow proved better than aaalll the supervillains combined by penetrating Cap with a mere bullet to the heart. Deadly for normal people but it seemed farfetched and later seemingly ignored that it happened to Cap. (As if a bullet could fell Cap - oh the irony.) Fortunately Donald Blake was around. It was issue 145-146 iirc [may be one issue off].

Ah, the good old days when publishing on time, even if it meant some fill in story, was the priority. What I find amazing is that they made it a two issue fill in rather than rushing and editing the story down to a single issue.
