In the current Marvel Universe there are 3 teams that claim the title Avengers.
Captain America (Bucky)
I probably missed a character or 2. But according to my count above the current total roster is at around 24 members with only 6 being of the female persuasion. This brings me to my point. Would you buy an ongoing Avengers book if it was only a group of female super heroines? Even if you didn't use any of the females listed above you could still have a crop of currently unused female characters to choose from.
Long time strong female characters such as She-Hulk, Photon, Sersi, Tigra, Crystal, Sharon Ventura and Firestar would all make great Avengers in my mind. You could even use some females such as Hellcat, Firebird or Lionheart that haven't been seen in the pages of a Marvel book in ages. Put them as a team under the guidance of someone like Sharon Carter, Maria Hill or Victoria Hand and you could be on to something.
