That's the Internet opinion, but in reality, NA is Marvel's top selling title. Not sure about Mighty Avengers exact sales, but I bet they're pretty high too.

> Yes, but the New Avengers and Mighty Avengers is probably the worst rubbish on the market right now. In my opinion there is no Avengers book anymore. I hope this doesn't happen to Spiderman also. Strong start that quickly fades into crap because Marvel no longer thinks beyond the next story arc that they can quickly release as a trade or fancy hardcover. They have ruined the Avengers and Iron Man with their short sited ideas. How will they hype the Iron Man movie now that they have turned Stark into a self righteous ass. Oh, I know. Just before summer we'll make everyone forget that Civil War happened. No problem.

I think the "silent majority" was thrilled to be able to get Wolverine and Spider-Man in the same book. More efficient that way. ;\) Also, the book has had incentive variants or been involved in one event or another since it started so there's no way to what the "true fanbase" of the book is.

That said, Avengers has been a top 20/30 book for decades, no matter how popular or unpopular the creative team has been. Some folks just like their team books and don't care what the "critics" think.
