    Spider-Man - Bendis put him on the page a lot, as did Hickman. The No Surrender writers didn't use him. Aaron Belphegore isn't using him. I think in-story he was recruited by Cap. I don't consider him an Avenger any more. I did, but I don't any more, because he doesn't seem to consider himself an Avenger as far as I can tell, bearing in mind I don't buy his books.

I like Spider-man as an Avenger, and if anyone deserves it - both in terms of track record and personal morality - it's him. I wish he didn't cement as an Avenger during a run that was purely about sales, though.

    Wolverine - Bendis put him on the page a lot. Did Hickman? The No Surrender writers didn't use him, because he was dead. Aaron Belphegore isn't using him, I guess because he was dead. I think in-story he was recruited by Cap. I don't consider him an Avenger any more. I did, but I don't any more, because he was dead and I think he's getting a fresh start, clumsy as that that fresh start may be. Also, and to be frank, I never really believed in him as in Avenger. Bendis never convinced me.

Absolutely terrible idea. See my above point about $ale$.

I'm not a fan of Bendis, but Bendis made Luke interesting, and I think Luke earned his place as a solid Avenger during Bendis' run.

    Starfox - I don't know how he got on the team. Bendis didn't use him. Did Hickman? Being an Avenger just seemed like a very temporary gig for this immortal character. I can't imagine that he thinks of himself proudly as an Avenger.

I'm sentimental about Stern's run, but Starfox was not one of the high points. He wasn't strong enough or interesting enough to stand out. It did set him up for an interesting role during Infinity Gauntlet. Being related to Thanos is by far the most interesting thing about him.


    Quote:
    She-Hulk - I don't know how she got on the team. I don't think Bendis or Hickman used her. Did they? And yet, if the call went out for Avengers to Assemble, I feel confident She-Hulk would answer the call, and all would acknowledge her right to do so. I know Aaron Belphegore is using her, but let's face it, he's obviously doing it because he can't have the Hulk and there needs to be a Hulkish character because the movies trump all. Also he's completely violating her essential concept. Funny how the SJW is so ready to commit metatextual rape.

She-Hulk is more deserving than half the roster. She is an amazing character and provides an interesting take on feminism. She is a liberated, powerful woman with a high libido. She is sexy, strong, and smart all in one package.





And a lean, silent figure slowly fades into the gathering darkness, aware at last that in this world, with great power there must also come -- great responsibility!
