Toss in Jarvis' Tigra comment and you've got most of my little irksome problems with an otherwise pretty good book together.
Didn't Pym get some humanitarian award after all of the CW stuff? The guy has as big an IQ as Stark without his enhancements and has beat down anyone that's threatened his team. He's a hero through and through who had no more in the area of psychological challenges than anyone else. He's not liked by Bendis and will suffer for it just as Richards is regarded as the World's Biggest A-Hole by Millar and paid for that in CW. Personally I think Pym is one of the greatest Avengers of all time and the team is NOT an all star one without him.
Natasha..well, I'm pretty sure all things Avengers are Ultimatized so that didn't throw me at all. I still think she's not a requirrement for the team. You want a spy, there's..hmm.. HANK PYM! He can kick twenty times more butt than Ms Leatherbutt, hack into computers a thousand times better, and between his powers and the ants can gather intel faster than she can say, Das Vidana.
But Bendis does what Bendis does, and it's not as bad as Millar. That's how I think about Bendis books now. At least it's not Millar. He'd have had Tony banging Carol while they made plans..

Where are people seeing this comment? I've read the issue, now, four times, and I don't see it at all. In fact, I don't even see Jarvis or a reference to him, or Tigra, for that matter.
