    I agree for Iceman and Angel (Archangel has the more dark and sinister tone that I don't think belongs in the Avengers.) based on their Defenders and Champions experience. Nightcrawler classic is good, but the darker current version isn't Avengers material. Cannonball's acceptance of Cable's philosophy disqualifies him as an Avenger to me, but Kitty Pryde is a good pick. Essentially, any X-Man prior to Gambit would be fine for me as an Avenger temporarily at least, but the ones you listed minus Cannonball strike me as the kind that could stick around for a while.

I don't really differentiate between Archangel and Angel. Post-Horseman, it's all Archangel to me, and Warren wasn't that dark... until the X-Force crap.

Also, I don't think Cannonball ever really accepted Cable's philosophy completely. But I don't think Cable's philosophy disqualifies anyone from being an Avenger, either. The Avengers already include far worse than that.

City of Heroes is BACK!
