1. We are in the era TPBs and mega-crossover events. The reult is a constant "state of change". Change has always refreshed the team. However, now there is little more than change.
2. The original concept was to put the solo stars into a team book. This seems long forgotten. We had two,and only two, monthly chances to see our faves in action.How many times can we see Wolvie, Spidey, Cap, Storm??? 3,45? This makes the title LESS special.
ex: Any char on 2 con-current teams is unacceptable IMHO.
Imagine this 1963 team: Sgt.Fury, Iceman, Thing, DumDumDugan, MarvelGirl, Invisible Girl...sounds riduculous and superfluous.
3. Too many teams? Not when using the Avengers/WCA model.
"Separate But Equal"
a. Each team has its own Big three
b. Crossover ONLY once a year
c. Unique chars + unique storylines = unique teams.
ex: I can read more than three issues of Academy and know that changes are consistent within the title.
4. Team size. I prefer 7, limit to 8.
Currently*: Av=12; SA=12; NA=11(SquirrelGirl=12);AvAssemble=6**
*Wikipedia(yes,Cap counted 4 times)
** reluctanlty have to give AAssemble a pass since it's 100% marketing.
