Worst Avengers Line-Up Ever

I collected Avengers kind of off and on but I think this may go on record as the worst Avengers line up ever. First off, it's only five people. The Avengers should have at least 6-7 people 'cause you know people get their regular days off, so you have to have some flexibility in there. Secondly, two of the five people are members of the Fantastic Four. I don't buy the idea that you can be in two superhero groups at the same time. Certainly not high profile groups like the FF and the Avengers. Mister Fantastic and the Invisible Woman were kind of weak characters back then anyway. Thor is there, he's good. Steve Rogers is going under his The Captain alias at this point and rounding out Earth's Mightiest Heroes is...Gilgamesh, the Forgotten One! He was forgotten before he showed up and I guarantee he's been long since forgotten. Apparently he hasn't been seen in recent years and is presumed dead. Oh, and this just one gives a crap anyway. This issue deals with the Inferno crossover which kind of creeped me out as a 11-year old nice Catholic boy. I think they righted the line-up a few issues later but for a while, this team sucked. The only way this team could have been a worse line up is if Starfox and Dr. Druid were on it.

We should really coordinate a lot more with our posts. We should do an Avengers week or two at some point.

BTW - the current "Mighty Avengers" team that Iron Man just formed consists of Iron Man, Black Widow, Ms. Marvel, Wonder Man, the Wasp, Sentry and the Olympian god Ares. Apparently, they didn't learn their lesson from the comic you posted about including "Gods" that aren't named Thor or Hercules. Ares was working a construction job because he's got a son to provide for and Iron Man offered to match his pay. That's how they convinced him to join the team. I swear I did not make any of that up, read the comic.

Another BTW, I have the issue you posted and it is a very lame team. I hated that team and the teams right before this one because Dr. Druid was on them. Hate that guy.
