> We can surmise from the previews for the coming months that the Pro- Registration side "wins" so I understand there being a slight power imbalance but even if Ronin is Cap these teams are mismatched worse than the X- Men vs. Avengers!
> For the new Avengers you have 4 street level characters, one mid-range strongman, two minor powerhouses in SW and SP, and one heavy hitter in Strange. This team has little in the way of power variety and bruisers. Without Strange this team loses to most established teams powerwise!
> On the Mighty Avengers side you have-
> For the other team, you have one street level, a shrinking woman, Ms. Marvel, who is basically WW for Marvel plus some EP, IM for excellent ranged attacks and strength, a powerhouse wargod AND the Sentry. Not to mention Simon who isnt too shabby, stronger and more durable than Cage, the one real strength character on the other team.
> My question is why stack the deck so far in one direction? Why not Hercules or Thor with Caps team? That would add some serious power to the lineup or even the new and improved returning Hulk or his pissed off cousin once she finds out what Tony did to Bruce? Im just curious how two teams, who will from the previews, still be at odds after Civil War, even interact or have the obligatory comic fight when there is no doubt to the outcome?
Marvel's two iconic powerhouses have been missing for months...
Thor and the Hulk. And both have awesome reasons to be upset at their fellow heroes - planetary exile and cloning. Likely that animosity will be directed to the Pro-Reg side when they return.

> Planet Hulk has been an AMAZING story for anyone not picking it up, but I am starting to miss the Hulk and Banner interacting with the rest of the earth based heroes, especially the Avengers...
and Thor, has been away for WAY too long. As one of Marvel's premier heroes, he should be back by now in more than clone fashion, which for me personally, was one of the low points of Civil War, which I have liked overall.
These two would be an excellent addition to any team of Avengers. What I dont understand is that in their absence their two "replacements" on Earth, She- Hulk and Beta Ray Bill arent on an Avengers team. I know BRB is on Omega Flight, whcih look interesting, but the "man" is a powerhouse with few equals and shoudl be showcased.
