I was thinking about who might be able to fill Dr. Strange's spot in NA. I changed my mind given the fact that he is unregistered and think it would be cool for the new Captain America to join. He has a history with Wolverine, which is interesting and it would just seem like a better fit for him, rather than putting him in Mighty Avengers. The NA was largly loyal to the first Cap to begin with. It makes more sense.

I'd like to see Thor on the team also, but he wouldn't show up every issue. He could give them sanctuary in the new Asgard when they need it. He would fill the powerhouse position nicely and be a great opposition to the Sentry in MA.

I'd like Clint to be Hawkeye again, now that Iron Man knows he is back.

Maybe Marvel Boy could make his big return and become part of the NA under the guise of Ronin, seeing as how he was a fugitive at one time, having declared war on America. After his chat with the Illuminati, he becomes a hero for a change and sides with the Avengers.

Tigra would make sense given her recent problems with The Hood. Maybe she gets fed up with the registration as a result and begins aiding the NA. Everyone says Bendis doesn't like her, but he seems to be using her alot lately, and she does put up a fight by the end of last story arc.

So then:

1) Captain America
2) Thor
3) Luke Cage
4) Spiderman
5) Wolverine
6) Hawkeye
7) Iron Fist
8) Echo
9) Marvel Boy as Ronin III
10) Tigra

In the long run, Peter Parker must be a loser who cannot be earning a full-time salary as an Avenger. As long as he is a New Avenger, the New Avengers cannot pay their members, or even have much of a formal organization.

Considering everyone is going to have to band together to fight the Skrulls and that it will be a great victory, I am baffled at even thinking of a scenario where Tony Stark and Peter Parker do not reconcile. But if they reconciled, Peter Parker should at least be worth some sort of job at Stark Industries.

I'm wondering if at some point Peter Parker will do a throwback to the 80s or whatever and beg off of being an Avenger to go back to being a street-level hero, even though he has proven he can hang with them as an equal. (And at this point, the New Avengers ARE a street-level hero superteam.)
