    Well, that depends a lot on what you mean by "ultimately the same team". The first "Team B", the West Coast Avengers, was officially set up by the Avengers, but soon became autonomous in various respects (IIRC most of its members were recruited by its own leader, Hawkeye, not the leadership of the East Coast team ("Team A").


The West Coast Team was set up by the Avengers, under Vision's chairmanship. Of course, wasn't he already on the road to trying to take over the world when he set up the team?

Hawkeye did choose all the original members of the WCA: Tigra, Wonder Man, Mockingbird and Iron Man (Rhodey, but Hawkeye didn't know that at the time).

It should be noted that other than Mockingbird the others were former/reserve Avengers (well, I suppose Rhodey wasn't but Hawkeye didn't know that). Hawkeye also did his best to follow the Avengers charter, even if he misunderstood it at times (He didn't offer membership to Firebird because he wanted the Thing on the team and thought that the charter had a membership size limit).

I actually find the end of the West Coast team to be more interesting in terms of this thread: The East Coast team decided that the WCA should be disbanded and reabsorbed into the main team. Every active Avenger had a vote and the team was disbanded.

The WCA decided to go their own way (forming Force Works) instead of holding on to any claim to the Avenger's team name (even though Tony Stark was a West Coast Avenger at the time).

Nowadays it seems like the WCA team would have said "Screw you! We're still Avengers... try and stop us!"
