I agree with a lot of what you say. But the Guardians were listed as honorary. Supposedly so they could use the Avengers computer system, but I would have thought 30 th century far superior and easily hackable. Martinez even had an Avengers ID card which he showed Spiderman.

Marrina, was listed as honorary even though Monica called her an Avenger.

Young Avengers far as I was concerned were given membership by Bendis but seemed they forgotten when it came to Children's Crusade.

Hellcat she was given reserve status.

Machine Man I would say had reserve status.

I would say the Dark Avengers were considered members, but had it stripped from their actions.

Rita only showed up because of the ringing in her head. Though she did apply for membership she never stayed for the interview.

If Agent 13 is an Avenger would you consider Maria Hill? She led the team for 17 issues. Now she acts like she never spent any time with them.

Prince of Orphans is an interesting case. Seemed he had status, helped on a couple of cases.

Mar-Vell, I would thought he had membership. Beast referred to him as part of the membership in Avengers #182.

Worth pointing out that reserve status IS full membership, just not actively being an Avenger at that moment... and honorary members don't get Identicards, as Rick Jones demonstrated in Galactic Storm. So the Guardians are full members, but are "honorary" in the sense that they live in another era.

Young Avengers are on-panel finally given status in Children's Crusade.

Machine Man is definitely a full Avenger... again, "reserve" is the same as "full, but not actively hanging around". If he's not, then Darkhawk isn't either as he explicitly joined under the same terms... and has participated in fewer actual cases.

I LOATHE the idea of Sharon being a full Avenger, but the Handbook says she is... and Maria Hill isn't, being in the same role that Sikorsky, Gyrich, and Victoria Hand filled. I have no explanation as to why this is other than Marvel actively is trying to confuse us.

Prince of Orphans is called Nova's replacement explicitly by Cap. Apparently, that's not good enough for Marvel, although he acts as a team member for more cases than at least a third of the list.

By #182, I'd have included Mar-Vell in the Avengers, but the Handbooks disagree.
