...Dr. Druid was in a team that consisted of Cap, Thor, Captain Marvel, Black Knight, Wasp, and She-Hulk ... which was more of a "classic" team than Power Man and Iron Fist, Spidey, Wolverine, and Dr. Strange.

Plus, Druid became a character the reader was supposed to hate.

And D-Man? Get serious. The guy was an honorary Avenger for what? All of one or two issues of Captain America?

The banner over at the MUB board has it right. These aren't the Avengers any more. They're "Bendis' SuperFriends."
