With all this talk about post-SI Avengers, I'd like to see a bigger separation between the two Avengers teams.....

Let's say one team is international, the other based in New York.

Who would be your seven members for an international Avengers team? For that matter, where would they be based?

Silver Sable (Symkaria)
- Inspired by the post below, Silver Sable should be both the leader and the host for the team, with her neutral (and fictional) country as the home base.
Motormouth (UK)
- The official representative from Britain (in reality, they just want to be rid of her). The team's loose cannon.
- The innocent. Obviously her origin needs to be addressed and cleaned up, but she'd be a good match. Sunfire (properly repowered) would be good too, but he's better staying in Japan as their Superman.
Ursa Major (Russia)
- The strongman for the team, and the most experienced soldier.
Box/Madison Jeffries (Canada)
- Immenssely powerful and currently mentally broken, he has a lot of potential and interesting character flaws.
Arabian Knight (Saudi Arabia)
- The character needs polishing. The previous Knight was an embarassing stereotype, and the current one could be miswritten as a terrorist. It'd be nice to see a real Muslim hero.
Xorn (China)
- Given China's population and position in the world economy, they need to have a member on the team, and since no one behind the scenes at Marvel seems to want anything to do with Xorn, he seems like the best character to toy around with.

Anyone have their seven? You don't have to give detailed explanations...

What the heck, there's 10 but how 'bout...

The New Unbelievables

Unbelievable. It seemed like only yesterday that Django Gustov received the news of Sean Cassidy's death. They had teamed up to create a new international team of superheroes. And since then, there had been more death reports of others, that he previously had the honor of personally working with: Namorita, Human Torch, Arabian Knight, Deathcry, Moondragon, Blitzkrieger, and the Scarlet Scarab*.

Cassidy had set in motion transferring all the assets of the failing X-Corporation to support their new team. Django had agreed to work with his new found friend to establish a full-time task force to help save the planet on a daily basis.

After hearing of Banshee's death, he learned that a mysterious philanthropist had siezed control of what was X-Corp. Then came 'Decimation' and 'Civil War'. The U.N. was in disarray from debating priorities. Django had to leave his position at the United Nations to seek private funding for his dream team.

He imagined them to be the world equivalent to his idolized American Avengers. He had already contacted and confirmed an ecclectic core line-up:

The men,
Avro-X, from Canada
Vormund, from Germany
Le Vent, from France
Gentle, from Wakanda
Micromax, from England
Omerta, from Italy
Gravity, from USA

And the women,
Lynx, the mystery woman from the Savage Land Nation which was most recently recognized by the U.N.
Starlight, though her agreement has been thru Russian channels only
Scarlet Scarab, a new* heroine and successor from Egypt

Now, it was yesterday that he had been contacted by the mystery philanthropist to meet for unconditional financial support. He had arrived in Sydney, Australia that would serve as base to the group. Django immediately recognized the giant of man as he approached and offered a handshake.

"Hello Mr. Gustov, I'm Imus Champion."

This man - whose assistance would be graciously accepted - was ironically, reportedly, and undoubtedly a past arch rival of the Mighty Avengers! Unbelievable.
