Sersi and Quasar have the same problem. Both, if using their power set intelligently, wouldn't require any help from any other Avenger to solve any super villain threats by themselves. So, no they will not likely be full timers any time soon.

Mantis and Moondragon (and to a lesser degree, Hellcat and Starfox)have the same drawback in that the Avengers tend to rely on the lack of a psiot for many of their story beats. Not necessarily a major plot point, but with a telepath an awful lot of the divided team drama would simply disappear. So, no full time job at Avengers Tower any time soon.

Black Night: Hmmm...a tech savvy knight with a flying horse and an enchanted blade that carries a horrible curse that he struggles with. A dangling storyline from last decade (Blood Wraith, anyone?)and history with the team going back to the sixties/seventies. Nah, who would ever be able to come up with any uses for him?

Crystal: Flip a coin. I really enjoyed the whole "people's princess" angle while she was married to Ronan, but I surmise that the upcoming theatrical use of Ronan required that to go away. No reason to preclude her or use her at this point, but she is still the front runner for membership in my opinion.

Hellcat: The only barrier I see is that Mighty is pushing a similar character in White Tiger, and if there was a need for a second Avenger with the same power set, I expect they would use Tigra. Which I would be okay with, especially if Cho or Land draw her.

Starfox: Biggest issue for me is that he is Thanos' brother. If Thanos is to be considered an apex evil Death worshiping threat, why are Mentor and Eros still alive? If Thanos is an anti-hero, why isn't Eros trying to find/redeem him? Plus, I'm still holding out hope for Starfox to get some cosmic exposure. He was friends with Captain Mar-vell, Silver Surfer and Quasar after all.

My thoughts anyway. Not likely salient since I am quitting coffee this week, but there they are.
