Remember the days when one Avenger would come down the pipeline every year or so. Now it seems that everyone is offered membership.

Has the roster some of its luster recently?
In the last 5 years we've had
Jack of Hearts
Ant Man (Scott)
Lionheart
Luke Cage
Spider-Woman
Wolverine
Sentry
Echo
Ares
Iron Fist
Dr. Strange
Ronin

Im not saying that some of these characters dont deserve to be Avengers, it just seems to much of a good thing has made it boring

Just my two cents...

I dunno. Avengers membership has often come in waves.

1963: 6 new members (founding; including Rick Jones)
1965: 4 new members
1975: 5 new members
1989: 7 new members
1990: 3 new members
1991: 4 new members
1992: 4 new members
1993: 4 new members
2005: 5 new members
2007: 3 new members

There were quite a few years in there with 2 new members that I wouldn't call a wave. Some years we didn't get any.
