No offense, but this seems like a pretty minor thing to quit reading over. The Uncanny Avengers is obviously something that will have a short shelf life. People started screaming when Spider-man revealed his ID as if it had any chance of sticking. Just enjoy the stories or else wait for something more to your liking. I don't see it as that big of a deal.

I don't know... I tend to also believe the brand identity of the Avengers was severely damaged with "Avengers Disassmbled" and the sudden inclusion of Spider-Man, Wolverine, Power Man, Iron Fist, Dr. Strange, etc.

And yeah, Uncanny Avengers?!? Yikes. I mean, if Marvel wanted to work out this concept so bad, why not employ the likes of Scarlet Witch, Quicksilver, Beast, Wolverine, Justice, Firestar, and Namor? You know, Avengers who are also mutants? Instead, we have Cap, Thor, Rogue, and Havok?!? What the-?!?

Plus, the idea flies in the face of everything the Avengers represent - that is, "fighting the good fight for EVERYONE."

(The X-Men's identity is all about trying to create a bridge between humanity and mutants.)

Also, the Avengers have almost always lent Xavier's group a hand when they needed it most. Magneto's "rehabilitation" aside...
