Way I heard it the writer on Captain America at the time, who was not the Avengers scribe,inducted D Man into team in over ib Cap's book. Is that accurate?

How does that happen?

This was during the period in Simonson's run where the Avengers had been disbanded (following the incident of Kang Nebula and Dr Druid taking over the team), and Cap was trying to put together a new team of Avengers. So, when Cap inducted D-Man into the team, there technically *wasn't* a team yet in the AVENGERS book--and D-Man was "killed off" in the same issue that he was recruited.

Basically, it was an attempt to show Cap recruiting someone he knew and trusted, who would be a logical choice for him to approach when he was putting together a new Avengers team from scratch--but to not have it impact the main AVENGERS book, since D-Man was immediately taken out of the picture.

Frankly, it makes more sense, imo, than when they had Machine Man added to the team in WCA without Machine Man being present in the issue, and without even being *invited* to join the team--he was simply voted in without his knowledge or consent (by ONE member), and that was enough to officially make him a reservist.
Or how about the time that Sandman was unveiled as the newest Avengers recruit... despite having not made ANY appearances in the title or with the team to lead up to that. It was simply, hello, this is Sandman. He's a good guy now, so he's gonna join. Where the heck did *that* come from?!?
