Maybe we need another monthly called "The Real Avengers" which we shall henceforth refer to as "RA". Members might include Captain America, Thor, Vision, Quicksilver, Scarlet Witch, Hawkeye, and Black Panther. Occasionally they might FIGHT against Kang, Ultron, Zodiac, the Collector, and some incarnation of the Masters of Evil. Writers might include guys who give a crap, like Joe Casey. Artists might include anyone who can accurately depict human anatomy, albeit from a body-builder perspective. Stories would have no limit -- we'd have nice 4-5 issue arcs as well as one-and-dones. Creativity would be for creativity's sake, not some prescribed length or format. Finally, letters pages and message boards would light up with the adulation of 30-50 year olds everywhere, praising the Marvel gods for returning the formerly hijacked, beloved Avengers of yore.
Wait a minute. You're suggesting an Avengers book wherupon someone can easily identify the team as Avengers just by looking at them. You mean you would use tried and true characters that established fans care about without working in a mix of characters that no one cares about (ie Sentry, Ares). Oy, that's a wild idea. The next thing you know you'll be suggesting that every character have their on personality or that situations evolve from Marvel history. Why, to do that, Joey Q might have to hire another writer besides Bendis. I just don't know where you kids get these crazy ideas.
Seriously, as much as I've stuck with the book so far out of loyalty to my favorite characters, I'm oddly noticing that none of them will be present in NA so I may have to finally acknowledge that there is nothing left to be optimistic about and no one left to be loyal to. It's not looking good for my continuing to buy.
