I've always been a fan of the Honorary Avengers, some of whom died as true Avengers or were very important in some plot. I dont understand much the difference between authentic or honorary, for example, I consider that Rick Jones, Whizzer or the second Swordman and Magdalene were much more important and pierced deeper than "authentic Avengers" as Storm or Daredevil. Also what I do not understand is why sometimes they are considered as authentic Avengers and in others (as in the 50th anniversary poster) only some are released and others are not. I would like to know what do you think about some Honorary Avengers, like Rick Jones, Guardians of the Galaxy, Moira Brandon, Rita de Mara or Flux, if you consider them true Avengers or not.
Don't forget Captain Mar-Vell.
Rick Jones deserves full on founder status IMHO.
