Finesse, Hazmat, Mettle, Reptil, Striker, Lightspeed, White Tiger, and X-23 were all made "Avengers 3rd Grade" in Avengers Academy #39.

Surely that counts more than the many honorary members who people consider canonical Avengers. They've been trained by Avengers. They've gone on missions as Avengers. They got security clearance. So why leave them out?

They're certainly more Avengery than the Young Avengers other than Stature, Vision 2.0, and Noh-Varr. Have the others ever actually gone on any Avengers missions? Hasn't it been more like them going off on their own before being chased down by the Avengers who then team up with them?

Also, by my count, Ava Ayala is White Tiger V.

There was Hector Ayala, then the one from Wundagore in Heroes For Hire, then Kasper Cole, then Angela Del Toro before Ava.

I remember that, I just looked it up and they are considered more associate level what ever that means. That would bring it up to 147. I just thought, did Victoria Hand have honorary status? Captain America referred to her as "one of them." Squirrel Girl? She was in one of the meetings.
Skaar and Red She Hulk. For whatever reason she was with the Avengers when they fought the Serpent and his followers.

Maybe one day I'll redo a list with honorary, in training, actual members.
