    You all are looking sat this all wrong, that is with logic. There are so many things about these books that don't make any sense. Look at wolverine joining the team, makes absolutely no sense seeing as how The Avengers is suppose to have a no killing policy, and who has killed more people than him while still wearing the title of "hero"? Also, cap just seem to forget that he tried to kill him 2 or 3 issues ago \(\-\) . Cap didn't "choose" anyone, if you want to know why certain members are joining, you need to ask the writers and higher ups, as they sometimes override their decisions.

You may or may not agree with it but there was a very specific reason for why wolverine was brought onto the team and this was explained back at the beginning of New Avengers vol 1 - namely to do the unpleasant tasks that need doing regardless. If I recall this was Starks reasoning and Rogers disagreed with it in principle.

    If your expecting to get an explanation, or better yet one that makes sense, I wouldn't hold my breath if I were you.

My point is really that I dont expect any explanation for the line up other than the 'cool' factor. I described the choice of line-up and the combining of the two franchises as akin to when a five year old who like lions, jet planes and robots decides to invent a flying robot lion - because combining all the cool things you like must surely make them automatically cooler!

Its not much different than Bendis decison all that time ago to stick Spidey and Wolvie on the team. Years later that still hasnt served much purpose other than to sell comic books.
