'Runs' as in a run on the title rather than what happens when you eat too much curry.

Anyway, which writer has had the best run on the Avengers, or which particular era was the best in your opinion?

What did you think of Busiek's run on Volume 3?
Was Geoff Johns a worthy successor?
What do you think of Bendis' work on New Avengers?

Kurt Busiek's run is what made me an Avengers fan.. I was so sad when he ended it. Love how he had a core team with lots of extras around, loved his handling of characters.. particularly Scarlet Witch who was slowing moving forward to be a team leader (all this was undone the second Johns took over). I liked his additions to the team... Justice, Silver claw and Triathlon. Kurt is a good classic superhero writer who uses history to push forward, unlike many classic writers who use history to keep things static.
I didn't think John's was a good successor. I left his book pretty quickly after world tour started. It just sucked so much and pushed back to old times too much, rather than using the past to move forward.
I came back cause I thought Bendis was going to push things forward again. definitely enjoying his work... especially since Civil War with the more classic team and the street level team + Strange.
