I've been reading the New Avengers since their beginning and really enjoy them. I love the diversity of the team and the use of less used characters. And though I really love this new team, they seem more like Defenders than Avengers. They are mostly street level characters with one or two powerful members that gives them a level of power that allows for them to hold their own against any aggressors. So why not call them Defenders? Like I said before, Marvel is becoming a one trick pony. First multiple Spiderman comics. Then X-men are running rampant. And now Avengers every where. I like Bendis bringing characters to new levels of recognition but why stop there? Marvel could use other teams other than Avengers and X-men. I for one would love to see the Champions and Defenders brought back and placed somewhere other than New York. Champions would be a great west coast team, while the Defenders were made for Chicago. Most of the characters on the Secret and New Avengers were Defenders or Champions at one point or another. I know most feel that these teams have become a sort of stigma for failure for Marvel, but so have Cage, Iron Fist and Moon Knight. All they need is the right attention and creative team.
