      Not a lot of diversity , check out the pics at the top of this page, it's whiter than a Klan rally during a snow storm \:\)

    The pic doesn't include Vision, War Machine or Falcon. That brings the total to 12 of which 2 are African American. 2/12 = 17%. The African American population of the US currently is 14%, so technically they're over represented. With Black Panther joining the team shortly the team will have more than addressed it's PC quota.

    The demographic that is grossly under represented is woman. You could also make a case for Hispanics and Asians. But obviously what is most important is to tell good stories and portray the team and it's members in proper character.

I seem to remember a few Hispanic mmebers in the comics (Silverclaw, Firebird, Living Lightning) but the only Asian off the top of my head is Mantis (and she's half-white). The X-books on the other hand have always had plenty of Asian members (Jubilee, Karma, Sunfire, Thunderbird III etc).

I'd say the New Warriors, Thunderbolts and Alpha Flight are even more ethnically diverse than the Avengers.
