    Thor often gets dumbed down and/or powered down in the pages of the Avengers to make the rest of the team relevant. If he were to face some of the menaces the Avengers face in his solo book, he would be able to take care of business by himself.

That was even explicitly addressed within the pages of Avengers itself once -


    Justice I thought was a well done example of a character being less effective, since it was an ongoing subplot with Justice. By the end of his tenure with the team he had smartened up and gotten past his hero worship.

I think the problem is that some of his ineptitude was so explicit, that even though he visibly gets over it later, the initial portrayal of it was so strong that that's what most people usually remember first when referring back to Vance's brief tenure on the book.
