I loved the WACKOS back in the day.

Is there a place for them now or are they best left in the past.

I would have liked to see Hawk and Mock back together so her resurrection was worthwhile.

Id also welcome Tigra, Wonderman and Firebird

Maybe even Hellcat, Hank Pym or Wanda and Vision.

I'd like the idea of a team living on campus and a focus on personal issues as well as big bads.

I wouldnt mind an LMD Zodiac, The Nightshift and Master Pandemonium.

Any thoughts?

I'm a big WACKo fam myself. In fact, I was a fan of the West Coast team long before I was a fan of the "main" Avengers.

What it would take would be a focus significantly different from the "main" Avengers. I haven't read Avengers in a LONG time, so I don't know what that would be.

I'd be excited for a book with any/all of your suggestions.

In addition: USAgent, Dr Demonicus and/or the Pacific Overlords, and some iteration of the Phantom Rider.

Don't make it some niche like the last one, and nothing like Great Lakes. Don't laden it with also-rans. Treat it like a bona fide extension of the proper Avengers. Other Avengers books survive, so there really isn't a reason it couldn't.

In my opinion the book needs some of the “West Coast” flair and reasons for the characters to be centered there and as stated by others on the post, it needs to be separate from the main book. I would like to see a team that recognizes that the avengers have lost their way and need to be more selective with their members. EVERYONE should NOT be able to be an Avenger, this should be a position to strive for not a position you get because you were there at the right time for the right team up (and yes I know that is how the original team got started, but the concept grew from there)

So I would say:

Hawkeye
Mockingbird
Simon Williams

I feel like those 3 have enough reason to be on the West Coast and fit the needed descriptions. Maybe Hellcat or Tigra as well - not both.

After that, give them a good reason to be on that side of the states and a good vetting process and I would suggest 4-5 more members with history to the Avengers and maybe only 1-2 new only.

Ok yeah that all sounds good to me

How about we start with

Hawkeye
Mockingbird
Wonderman
Tigra
War Machine
Hank Pym
Firebird
The Shroud
Julia Carpenter

Thats a reasonable sized cast to generate some stories All with ties to the original team.

I too was always a fan of the West Coast Avengers, and I hate what they did to the main Avengers in the last few years - to expand the Avengers so much - nearly every single socalled Superhero in the MU is now an Avenger! I would enjoy to see the old roster back, including Living Lightning and the Agent an Jim Hammond, it would be great, if it is a serious comic not like the GLA (tough I like the original GLA too!!) or other funstyle comic, BUT I wish they would bring together the old AND new Whackos to one "big" Team, that grows together and then bring in all the old foes and villains from the old West Coast Avengers series! I don't know why, but I liked that freak Cybertooth and always hoped, he comes back and ... becomes an Avenger ...
Maybe bring in characters from Force Works too ...
But please, not again and again and again Deadpool again everywhere and in every fifth issue!

TBH, those three have lost their way more than the Avengers have. The Avengers never really were selective about membership, and two of those spotlight that fact. There's not a single recent (past decade) member of Avengers that was less worthy of being Avengers than Clint and Simon. But they were.

My ideal WCA Team:

Hawkeye (leader)
Mockingbird (co-leader)
Wonder Man
Red Wolf (it's about time he joined the team after 50 years)
Scarlet Witch
Vision
Doctor Pym (back from the dead)
Wasp
Quicksilver
Goliath (Bill Foster) (another person who should have joined)

Reserves:

Tigra
Firebird
USAgent
Madame Web (Julia)
Living Lightning
War Machine

And maybe an X-Man like Angel or Psylocke later on

Great, I am totally with you, that would be the best roster for the West Coast Avengers, though I do not want to see so much more X-Men become Avengers, instead I would prefer Century from Force works or maybe Battlestar, the partner of U.S.Agent and of course members from the last new West Coast Avengers (yes, we want to see a serious series, but I am a big fan of Gwenpool!!)
