    Bottom line is that I want the Unity team and the former AIM/US team plus the normal team, and I want them totally separate, doing different things. They need different mission statements and outlooks on the world that sometimes butt heads. It's boring to have them all under one umbrella or roof. These teams don't exist for the same purposes. Forcing one into another is forcing them to be things they are not.

And why have 3 teams all hell bent on the same goals? Then you just have one big team.

    There's more bang for the buck in being separate. With a single weekly Avengers book, we get 1 story. With 3 Avengers books we get 3.

Agreed. And even if one story line is pretty meh, you have two other chances of a compelling one to follow monthly in the others.

    Don't really care for the AIM thing. You can't just assume control of a group like AIM and be a force for good. AIM is the equivalent of Al Qaeda or ISIL. I find the premise highly insulting and disgusting.

EXACTLY! I tried to follow it when it first came out but the concept was so silly I couldn't bear it.. plus Squirell Girl. Joke character turned mainstream Avenger. Let her go on the Great Lakes team and share their fate in publication. I'd rather just have Sunspot back and let AIM become what AIM is. Maybe have a story that takes care of both.

    That said, I do like most of the team and want to continue reading them (by themselves, so they can be themselves). I still want Squirrel Girl dead six ways to Sunday, and I have no fondness for Red Hulk. The others, I'm cool with.

Oh yeah, Rulk (and all the other latter day Hulks) can go away.

    Titles that appear on covers are generally, mostly marketing gimmicks. In a perfect world, we'd have better, more unique, titles for the books with these teams.

The Uncanny/Incredible/Invincible stuff lost every ounce of power when they started mixing them up. Unless you just use them on their original books they should be forgotten. What's the use of Spider-Man being Amazing if Squirrel Girl, Son of Terrax and Ford Motor Bowling League are too?
