Your kidding right? Wonderman has gone on rampages and has killed, Wolverine has killed his fair share of people, who knows how many people died in Wanda and Pietro's terrorist attacks. Sandman has also been an Avenger in the past.

Sure Ares is a "bad guy" but he is trying to reform. It doesn't stray from Avengers tradition to let villians or members on the team with questionable pasts.

I am not sure why this is even a discussion. Sure many Avengers have been flawed or turned wicked for sometime or sought redemption but..... Many Gods are depicted as often toying with mortals with no moral reservations. In some ways beyond our conception of morality or perhaps considering mortals unimportant enough to consider (there are many exceptions like Thor). This being said about the Gods...they found Ares too extreme an option to call on except in the most dire of circumstance and looked down upon him for his utter ruthlessness. He may be picking a new path now but.............it would be hard to believe he is already suitable to be a heroic, reliable Avenger. All that being said if Bendis explores the mismatch here it will likely be the most interesting thread in what I find to be the least interesting of the current Avengers books.
