    Default Characters on Multiple Superhero Teams at Once?

    Just noticed this trend in the past few years, where characters once associated with a single book (and thus, a single creative team having the most control of their fate) are now on multiple concurrent teams. It's not just Wolverine any more, as seen by the following examples;

    Hank Pym: Avengers Academy, Secret Avengers
    Hawkeye: Avengers Academy, Secret Avengers, Adjectiveless Avengers
    Ultimate Hawkeye: Ultimate Avengers (until recently), New Ultimates
    Luke Cage: New Avengers, Thunderbolts (not sure if he's still there)
    Beast: Secret Avengers, Wolverine's X-Men
    Psylocke: X-Force, Uncanny X-Men (if upcoming covers are any indication)
    Thing: Fantastic Four/Future Foundation, New Avengers
    Namor: Uncanny X-Men, Defenders
    Iron Fist: New Avengers, Defenders
    Dr. Strange: New Avengers, Defenders
    Storm: Uncanny X-Men, Adjectiveless Avengers

    Anyone I'm forgetting, especially from the DC Universe? I'm not sure if Batman, Incorporated counts as a proper super-team or not.

    Whether you count Inc. or not, Bats is already in JL and JLI.

    Isn't the JL title focused on the past continuity? Or is there a modern-day JL that Batman's also on?

    It skips ahead after the current arc, and judging from the covers and promos, Bats is still a member. Plus, JLI refers to him as basically the liaison between teams.
