I agree with your point about too many Avengers. But I've kinda come to the conclusion that the comic markets are not designed for those like you and I who have read for years but not so much anymore.
To be honest though the Uncanny Avengers thing does not bother me. Heck I loved the Champions which was kinda a precursor to that. And now that I think of it there have always been characters like Beast, Wanda, Quicksilver, etc on the Avengers.
I do think that the increasing reliance on mega crossovers and particularly storylines where long respected characters do hrrible things for shck value is a little troubling. I guess that the sales figures support that it boosts sales or else they wouldn't do it. But it just seems like you couldn't go to that well ttoo often without hurting thequality of the stories and maybe eventually the numbers as well.
