Echo/Ronin was brought along to Japan, but there was never anything in the text to indicate that she was being offered membership (in fact, most of the team didn't even know her identity at first, whereas they all knew each other's identity). I think she probably would have been made an official member if the events of Civil War hadn't intervened.


Case in point...how many times did Hercules (in the sixties), Ms. Marvel, Black Widow and many others appear on the Avengers' covers before they were actually made members of the team?! I thought Ronin I/Echo was an official member myself, until I saw that she was excluded from the roster on that other site. Thanks for your input people.

Ronin appeared on many covers but was never actually introduced into the books until issue 11 and was there until 13. She never was "officially" offered membership, but was asked by Cap to stay in Japan to keep an eye on the Hand activities and would be funded by Iron Man. No move then was made to make her an actual Avengers, although pre-CW Bendis mentioned that he would be bringing her back. I don't think her Avengers membership should count until post-CW.
