I could not agree with you 2 more!!! You are right..this is a Defenders book without them calling it that. And you are correct...Bendis is in love with the Hood for keeping him around for this long. And taking away the title of Sorcerer Supreme from Dr. Strange and giving it to Brother Voodoo???? That is for sure a Defenders level charecter and NOT and Avenger. Also...when both Luke and Danny were in the book you could have just as easily called it Heroes for Hire.

Bendis' New Avengers is really just a nostalgic 1970's revival. He's filled the roster with characters who haven't had their hey-day since the 70's (Spider-Woman, Luke Cage, Brother Voodoo). In fact, he reminds me a lot of Quentin Tarantino - both obsessed with 1970's pulp, both think ninjas and samarai are cool, both play a lot with trying to modernize 70's blaxploitation characters.

It always kills me when I see some posts complaining about 1980's nostalgia when their poster-child of modern comics (BMB) is influenced (in my opinion) by nostalgia that goes back even farther.
