Has anyone notice that within the past decade or so, The Avengers have gone through a lot of stuff? First the team assembles to fight off evil as a team, which was cool. They then expand their roster by adding a wide range of heroes and some reformed villains. After they fight some number of villains, they begin to be involved in many storylines from Secret War, Onslaught, the Avengerrs breaking up, reforming as New Avengers after a prision break, the Marvel Superhero Civil War, Multiple Avengers, (Mighty, New, Dark, Avengers Intitaive) Secret Invasion, Dark Regin (Introducing Osborn's Dark Avengers), Utopia, Siege (Ending Osborn's Regin), Heroic Age, (which ended up having The Main, New, Secret, And an Academy for Avengers) Fear Itself, Shattered Heroes, and now recently X-Sanction, fighting Osborn again with the HAMMER Wars, and in the Spring, the aftermath of X-Sanction will lead up to Avengers vs X-Men, which will involve possibly all Avengers and a lot of Mutants.
Basically, the have been very busy fighting various enemies. They have gone through a lot of hardship from these various battles. They have lost some members weather they quit, went rogue and blaming them for stuff (I'm looking at you Wonder Man and your Revengers), or they have been KIA.
To me, I haven't been reading up on all the Avengers comics since money is kinda tight and I usually wait for the trade to come out and I usually get the jist of whats going on through here, but I think someone give them a break. Since Marvel is kinda getting the reputation of releasing a lot of Marvel Events. I think Spider-Man or Deadpool would have cracked a joke about this by now.
