There has been many, but which one is your favorite?
Favorite incarnation of the Avengers?
Pym's Mighty Avengers, or the first teachers staff at Avengers Academy.
I never really got into AA, but I loved Pym's Mighty team; definitely one of my favorites.
I also really liked the team with two Hank Pyms from Avengers Forever. Pretty much any team with Hank Pym or Luke Cage as central characters works for me.
I didn't dislike it, but I only read the first dozen issues or so. It just never felt like the Avengers to me.. more like the X-men (since it was a school for superheroes) or Alpha Flight or something (since it was a bunch of no-names in a government program). I liked it alright, but it wasn't what I like about the Avengers.
Uncanny Avengers is actually becoming one of my new favorites.
Though the dynamic of the group hasn't really grown beyond not getting along with each other (which is a classic Avengers trope anyway), most of the characters have had both some great character interactions and significant contributions to the story (as well as to their own stories).
Even the characters that I was less interested in in the beginning (Havok, Scarlet Witch, Wonder-man) have become part of what I like about the book, and with classics like Cap', Thor, Wasp, and Rogue getting some great central roles in what's become an epic story, it's pretty hard to not like this team.
@oldnightcrawler: I liked the idea of Simon as a pacifist, surprisingly in character, and very original for the superhero genre. I actually use a pacifist in a series I'm writing.
yeah, Wonder Man's never been a character I really cared about one way or the other, but he's become both interesting and likable in this new series. It's a good move that gives him something distinct, and, like you say, without even coming off as out-of-character.
He's in Iceman territory: I generally like him when he's around, but I don't really miss him when he's not.
But I like him a lot in UA, so maybe that can change.
