Quote: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.
Wait, did people actually buy that BS about him "doing things they wouldn't" crap? With that reasoning, why not put punisher on the team as well. He was put there cause he was popular, plain and simple, for the "cool factor" as you said. The Avengers has existed for about forty plus years or something without resorting to killing, so putting an unreformed mass murderer on the team all of a sudden is pointless. Can anyone tell me since joining, has anyone see him "doing things they wouldn't" yet? Cause regardless of what they turn them into now, I don't see them being happy that he would kill anyone.
