Some people are simply more qualified to lead than others. And some have no interest in it.
Giving everyone a chance sounds nice in theory... but practically speaking it makes more sense to choose the most qualified people. This isn't a school club... these are life and death combat situations. You want good qualified people in that role.
Pain shared is divided, joy shared is multiplied
That said, there are plenty of teams that do operate under a more formal chain of command, with someone acting as field leader and calling the shots.
I don't find either system innately wrong per say.... though I do think if you're going to have a field leader either way (whether you've got a rotating chair person system or something more fixed), you might as well get the most qualified person if he or she is able.
Pretty bored of the "Wolverine betrayed the X-men because he's a mutant and therefore should align with the other (soon to be space bird crazy) X-men because minority stereotype and generalization~"
He felt he needed to do something that nobody else could or would do for the best of the world. That's the context here.

Wolverine has more skeletons in his closet then most villains currently in circulation do at this point.
I think Dr. Strange would be an interesting pick. He definitely has the aura of authority. He has experience leading the Defenders (as much as that odd team could have a leader at least...it was him).
Life looks better in black and white.
Besides Didn't Cyke had his own hit squad? (keep in mind IT WAS CYKES IDEA not logan, he knew logan would go beyond that line, same reason Tony Stark asked Logan to be an avenger.)
Despite the hating and wolverine killing, I'm in pure shock everyone is taking this like it's a first time deal or this is out of character for him. It's what he does, what's ever best and last I checked the kid in question (whether you like or not) agreed on it, and even then she herself on the moon told him to. So regardless the whole "murderer" Idea when given the facts are out the window. Especially how many murderers make up the Extinction team and are on Utopia as is.

Heres a random idea, Hickman will control most of the Avengers team books soon, and he has been promoting Black Panther in his final FF stories. I think T'Challa would be a great leader, I mean, he already is.
That is, if Cap doesn't want the job.
Honestly, I think the Avengers are beyond the whole "one leader" or a council of leaders concept. Most of the members are veteran heroes and if they can't work as a team, then they don't need to be on a team. If there's a new homegrown team with either new characters or those who are not yet established, then yeah...a leader should be chosen, like the X-Men was. Not every team should have a leader or figurehead.
But if so, then I'd still say rotate...that's if the team is small.
But we already know there will be several new Avengers, some even new superheroes period. Yes the former x-Men members maybe superhero vets, but that doesn't mean that they know how to work with "this" team.
his Involvement is trying to stop it, which he and his team did stooping it from being worsenor does his ratting said kid out to Cap later, make up for the fact that he actually has been running a assassination squad for months and has been hiding his involvement the creation of Tabla Rasa and the destruction of the town that was there before.
He's saving the world with out telling any one how terribleWolverine has more skeletons in his closet then most villains currently in circulation do at this point.
I'm so bored with this martyrdom routine, this halo all you X-men love to polish. Self-described soldiers adorned in an "X" with no dedication to what it actually stands for.
