Ares return still believes himself an Avenger, Avengers aren't interested ("screw them I'll get my own team"). He remembers Sandman was an Avenger he's in. Remembers Kraven was an Avenger asks him he says no but Ana wants to, Kraven joins reluctantly.
Other possible members are Moonstone, Constrictor and Daken.
Major plots being Ares still proving he's a hero, Kraven and Ana's relationship and Sandman finally putting himself straight.
@sc: you just described a perfectly written Ares lol.
I think we are on similar wave lengths.
An Avengers team made of cut throats nearly.
If I remember correctly when Norman made Dark Avengers Ares didn't see a probl being on the team as he believed they'd still achieve the same thing. It's kinda like Ares wants to be a hero but most naturally isn't. I find it hard to see him take orders when even the Olympians ask him for help and he is their General in times of war so to then follow a human seems also against his nature.
