Captain America. Bucky Barnes has to learn how to place nice with others. What it really means to be a symbol, and how important the Avengers are to that cause.
Thor. He's been gone for a long time, and things have changed while he was away. I think that he saw that as he weakened ties with his team, that everything started to fray at the edges, he wants to be there to hold things together.
The Hulk. The monster is back, but there are few ways that he can redeem himself outside of being on the most visible hero team in the world. They are the earth's mightiest heroes, so Hulk should be there.
Hawkeye. If he can't keep them in check, who will stand up to take that role? It's time for the bowslinger to nock an arrow again.
Spider-man. Petey needs the team, more than ever before. He made a deal with the devil, and I think in the depths of his heart, he knows that he'll need good friends around when it comes time to pay the piper his due.
The Wasp. Janet Van Dyne will need to be there, and need to step up her game. The team will be a mess post-secret invasion, and she'll be the glue to keep it together.
The Beast. Hank, restored to his human appearance as an effect from events in SI, is recruited to the team after taking a leave from the X-Men. He's fun-loving and bouncing around, but his heart is very conflicted behind all that. He's never been able to keep his human appearance, and he's always worried he'll go back to being a Beast again.
Ms. Marvel. Humbled byt the events of SI, worried that she was manipulated, she steps away from the leadership role and becomes more dutiful as a soldier. A night out drinking with Logan reawakens her "sneaky" side, and she ends up using her black-ops skills to greater advantage.

I thought I'd do away with all the dark/new/mighty stuff and just recast a core team.
Captain America (Barnes)
13 member team with a well rounded line up. If this team can't handle it, then Earth is screwed. :P
So much to choose from,
Phorton (Is that Monica's name these days?)
Antman (Lang, who I am really hoping turns out to not be dead, but rather captured by the Skrulls and never replaced)
The Black Widow
Ironman (Iron Patriot?)
New Avengers- A more low-key, street level team that can still handle the occasional BIG nasty, but doesn't really look for that kind of thing.
Captain America (Jim Barnes)
Add Spider-Man if you REALLY have to.
Mighty Avengers-Government stooges, like they are now
Dark Avengers- covert team not publicly acknowledged and not answerable to any group, government or agency, but will occasionally work with other groups if needed
Nick Fury (leader)
Nomad III (50's Captain America)
The REAL Avengers- Public, completely independant super hero team that is in competition, but not open conflict, with the Mighty Avengers, taking care of the Kangs, Neferias, and Ultrons of the world
Thor (or preferably a resurrected Thunderstrike)
Black Panther (leader)
Beast (I can dream right?)
But I think one more 'cosmic' or galaxy member is needed. One who is more adapt to handling outerworld problems that come from the universe and such. I can't think of who though.
I guess I'd say Sentry, though I hate his character, and I'm not sure if he's sane or still insane.
THE MIGHTY AVENGERS

...but also my dream teams:
The Dark Avengers:
Norman Osborne/Green Goblin
Iron Patriot (Evil other dimension Tony Stark from MTU)
Captain (Bucky) America
Hank Pym (Complete with many pockets and Jetpack)
Marvel Boy/Captain Marvel (Noh-Varr)
1) Cable - leading a whole new avenger team
2) Hulk - the exact opposite of Cable all physical powers instead of mental
3) Echo - every team nowadays needs a kung fu kicky boots type person
4) Vision - the original back and giving the team a big avenger with alot of history to the avengers.
5) Quake - this is the time she steps up and it's her time to shine
6) Sersi - interesting powers.
7) Dazaler - a pop star wants to join the most popular team on the planet who can blame her.
8) Sandman - a villain who's trying to reform but carry's on blundering on his path to redemption.
For one like unlimited lineup?
Captain America (Steve Rogers, obviously...to me anyway, I know Brubaker's done some good work Bucky, not denying the man's talent by any stretch, I just don't get the move in 1st place, he was more interesting as The Winter Soldier to me, if they were going to bring him back, personally for some reason I was always a Nomad fan, go figure.)
Captain Marvel (Mar-Vell)
I'm sure I'm leaving out some obvious ones, I'll have to get back to it, for one like ultimate Avengers lineup, not Ultimate as in The Ultimates Avengers lineup. Ugh. Try saying that 3 times, lol...anyways this one would have to be for something huge as in a major crisis.

WE WANT CAPTAIN MAR-VELL BACK
417 5th Avenue
New York, New York
JOIN THE RESISTANCE...The Liberation Front. Captain Mar-Vell needs you.
" MAIL IT TO..."M A R - V E L L"
"Hand written letters only."
p.s. If you have the means, please support the HERO INITIATIVE...it's this project I heard about which benefits comic artists/writers with health problems and no insurance, sounds like a good thing. Thanks for listening.
Here's the team I'd like to see.
Hawkeye - Team Leader
Spider-man - spider-powers, making jokes
Scarlet Witch - wildcard, like the sentry you're worried whether she's too powerful for her own good and whether she's going to go psycho again
Vision - The new one from Young Avengers, but put him in the all-white costume because he gets an upgrade.
She-Hulk - super-strength, destroying stuff
Dr. Strange - magic, alternate dimensional stuff
Forge - Super-science, mutant issues, shootin' stuff
and just for fun...in the reserves...
Howard the Duck as Team Mascot
He also drives them, pilots their plane, and works ops back at headquarters when they're on missions
"People don't want questions. They want answers." -- Plato to Socrates, right before he drank the poison
Avengers Couples: A romantic set of couples form the new team.
Hawkeye (Barton) & Scarlet Witch
Wasp & Yellowjacket
Justice & Firestar
Luke Cage and the return of Jessica Jones (joins to recover baby from skrulls)
Last edited by Slumber Hulk; 11-05-2008 at 12:49 PM. Reason: typo
I'd stick with one team of iconic characters.
with guest stars who have connections with the team
Medusa (to keep an eye on Quicksilver after Silent War)
Black Panther (because of his relationship with Storm)
Maria Hill (because of her relationships with Tony Stark and Bucky)
Agents of Atlas, Astonishing X-Men, Cable, Captain Britain & the MI:13, Incredible Hercules, New Mutants, Runaways, X-Factor, X-Force, X-Men Legacy
Air, Batman & Robin, Detective Comics, Fables, Madame Xanadu, Scalped, Unwritten, Young Liars
Angel, Astounding Wolf-Man, Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Chew, Crossed, Doctor Who, the End League, Fallen Angel, Invincible, the Last Resort, Phonogram, the Walking Dead
Did I miss something? What is Maria Hill's real relationship with Bucky, other then he was one of a few hundred blips on her radar when she was running shield?
