    I think that looks like fun! The problem with the Illuminati is that they make our heroes seem less heroic. And the problem with the Fury team was twofold: usage of the name "Avengers" when they have no connection to the actual Avengers, plus some of the members don't sit well with me. Sabertooth? Kraven? No thanks!

    Actually, here's a third thing that maybe bothered only me. I didn't like that '50s team being stuck into continuity because it seems like they are stealing the thunder of the far superior Agents of Atlas.

Well, it was already established that the Agents of Atlas were disbanded by Eisenhower before Fury's Avengers. The team only lasted 6 months before it was shut down (in late-1958/early-1959). So, there was no thunder to steal. This is probably the reason Bendis chose the Avengers team to be in 1959 (shortly after the shutdown of AoA).

But I definitely agree with you about Sabretooth and Kraven.

City of Heroes is BACK!
