Obviously we're speaking hypothetically since we don't know for sure.
AWC was always 'Avengers', just different. New Avengers vol.2 was so indistinct that people were unsure of which roster went where.
Here we have two distinct rosters, but who all intermingle in the third Avengers title (Assemble).
If that makes any sense? (Assuming, of course, that you're looking to make sense and not just stirring the pot...). :p
Freedom is the ability to live without fear of persecution. Nothing more, and certainly nothing less.
This thread is ridiculous. All these characters are full fledged Avengers, with whatever that entitles one to. The Uncanny Avengers division, or whatever you want to call it, is what Cap decided to set up, because he took to heart what Cyclops said about the Avengers non-involvement in mutant affairs. True, he recruited some specifically for this team, but what is the problem with that? Don't companies hire individuals for specific jobs? Cap recruited those he thought would best serve the mission statement for the team. Also, in all of 3 issues, we don't even know how often the Avengers teams will cross paths, and what each character's responsibility is. Haven't you ever heard of someone who actually has other responsibilities at their job than the main job title? An example I can think of is when a company has employees from different departments form a safety commitee. Most of these people perform this duty at set intervals while doing their regular work daily. Of course, there is usually a full time safety director, and assistants whose primary job function is this. But they are all still employees of the same firm, and each individual has a specific job function. What is wrong with that? And how often would every employee be needed for one task?
I think the wrong questions are being asked on this thread. Instead of asking why someone was being offered the job over someone else ask yourself why that specific person was asked in the first place. Are they at a bad place in their life and maybe want something more? Are they motivated? Do they have some sort of interest that align with what the Avengers are presenting? Does Steve trust that person? When you ask those type of questions the answer for certain characters like Shang Chi, Falcon, Cannonball, Sunspot, and Hyperion (read issue 4) become clear.
Captain America has been leading people for a very long time. He knows exactly what he is doing. He doesn't want anyone on that team like Havok or Rogue that aren't motivated to be there. I love Psylocke and there are a ton of characters that I would swap out for her in a heartbeat. But really, why the f would she care about the Avengers especially at this point in her life? Hopefully you understand the point I'm trying to get across.
This thread seem to indicated that Capt does not have respect for mutants and them as power muscle to get things done, but has little respect for them. As much as it seems that some want to say to avoid another AvX argument thread, this one goes right to that from when you first read it. It was in ways meant to be provocative, going event to the 2 choices you have in questions. Only answers like yours seem to bring the discussion back to where it should be, instead of where it has gone.
So Thank you both for that.
As a fan of Havok, Rouge and Wanda, I'm happy they get any and all the time they can get. Throw in Polaris and I'd be thrilled.
This thread is beyond stupid.
