Reply Subj: Ideal Avengers teams (and others)

A classic style team I think would be good:
Moony has some of the best psi when written as she was classically, Vision is powerful but won't invalidate other team members, Hercules has to get up close, but if he does can beat even high end heralds...psi and tech, good range and up close, overall versatile, but can still be challenged if Magneto comes to town or whatever. Not too many X characters, but Storm and BP can bring some readers, as will Spiey.
Joe Fixit Hulk
Ms. Marvel (Kamala)
I grew to despise Wolverine, but he sells books, and I loved him classically. Notably, his interactions with Fixit Hulk classically were some of my favorite issues of any comics. USAgent and Hawkeye have a bad history from the WCA days. Wolverine has a young woman (Kamala) to mentor, something he's good at and that plays to his character well. I like Monica a lot, and she deserves to have a spot. This lineup is versatile, with Monica having very good EP and versatility, good up close fighting, and some weird effects with Starfox. Again, powerful, but not too powerful to be interesting with more 'normal' threats
Ant Man (Lang)
Not the most powerful group, though Wiccan is impressive, even the young Nova can be pretty good, and Justice has some good showings as well...large numbers and versatile group, and I like the idea of bringing a pretty impressive Asgardian into the group. This one doesn't have a lot of the classic characters, and the idea is that you have some classic secondary Avengers like Sam, Stingray, and Justice (Firebird to a lesser degree) stepping up to take the lead for a new, younger group, and Luke Cage has now been an Avenger off and on enough to have some credibility.
Thor Girl (Tarene)
I like the idea here, but probably need to find someone else...the idea is a few veteran, very capable members like Cap, Wasp, IF, etc...but that tend to be on the lower power scale...then a couple of really powerful but inexperienced and somewhat ineffective characters like Tarene, or a new Quasar with no experience...they have the power to take on major threats, but are going to struggle because the big guns don't really have the power to do so effectively.
