    Secondly: Giant-Man. Quicksilver. Hercules. Black Panther. Vision. Black Knight. Mantis. Jocasta. Green She-Hulk. War Machine. Mockingbird. Quasar. Jim Hammond. Sersi. Stingray. Machine Man. Living Lightning. Spider-Woman 2/Arachne/whatever they've turned her into now. Crystal. Century. Moonraker. Cybermancer. Justice. Firestar. Lionheart. Luke Cage. Norman Osborn. Mac Gargan. Red Rulk. The Young Avengers and Avengers Academy kids.

    What about them? We don't know if or where any of them will be in the Marvel Now books. Some of them haven't been seen or used in years. Some of them haven't been used well in years. The Avengers franchise has all those characters it could be using, and chances everyone here has at least someone on that list who you'd like to see in a regular role in a book again (and maybe you even feel the same about someone I deliberately omitted for Crapness, or just forgot all about), it doesn't need to be poaching X-Men characters, least of all ones who aren't Wolverine so won't really affect sales at all.

Exactly! There are tons and tons of great Avengers characters that we've been deprived of for a very long time. My list isn't the same as yours, but that's actually the point. Everybody has their favorites, and we ought to be given the option to read about them SOMEWHERE SOMETIME.

After Disassembled, the team sucked in Heroes for Hire and Defenders characters galore. Now it's taking in X-Men by the boatload.

At this point, it feels like we're never going to see former mainstays like Photon, the Black Knight, or Quasar on a team ever again.

    And one last thing, everyone referring to Bruce Banner's alter-ego as "Green Hulk", keep on doing that, you're awesome, we can make this A Thing Everyone Does.

For me, the problem with any flavor of male Hulk being on the team is that they're displacing She-Hulk. With the apparent mandate to mirror the movie Avengers, I'm worried we'll be stuck with lesser Hulks for the long haul.
