Get over it, the team was stale before Disassembled and now we're all chatting away with several books each month relevant to the debate. "Classic" is relative. Aside from the disassembled ashes team that brought in heroes who rose to the occassion of the Vault outtage, most of those you list are either Tony's draftees or secret Avengers in the NA book and unofficial anyway. The Initiative is a chance to bring back many others. Avengers was nearly a carcass with flies and maggots, BENDIS! just electrocuted the corpse and franken$teined it into a wild albeit slow ride.

I'm loving the story and art much much more than the days of Rage, Dman, Druid, Sandman, etc

I'm not sure that it was the team that was stale. Busiek had his big story, then Johns came on with some big things. He got pulled away. They didn't really find someone to take over for a long time. To me, it wasn't the cast of characters, ti was the writers not knowing what to do with it. It got used as a jumping on point for Invaders, and things like that, that didn't help it. I agree with whoever said "it's not the characters. It's what you do with them". I like Bendis, and I'm enjoying NA, but I'm not sure it was neccesary to blow the whole team up to get there.
