With Marvel NOW coming up, I am ridiculously happy to say that Bendis is FINALLY off Avengers! THANK GOD. According to the solicits, Jonathan Hickman will be taking over the Earth's Mightiest Heroes, and hopefully he can undo some of the damage done during Bendis's absolutely unreadable run on the title. Personally, I would like to see the return of some classic Avengers like Black Panther or the Wasp(cause really it's about time they brought her back). I would also like to see Hickman use more B-list characters and get away from the "Bendis Belief"- the idea that a character is only good enough to be an Avenger if they're already being featured in three other books(I'm looking at you, Wolverine). I have high hopes for Hickman's run, and honestly we all know it will be better than anything Bendis ever wrote no matter what. So what about you guys? Who are you itching to see in the upcoming Avengers series?

@Gambit1024: I totally agree. I think the best thing that has happened to him recently was when he got to lead the Might Avengers. I'd like to see him finally get the respect he deserves as a founder

I would also really like to see Songbird finally become an Avenger

Black Panther. Given his new status and power up, him being on the team would be a no brainer. Hickman seems to like the character so he has a very good shot at being on the roster.

Agreed on both accounts :)

If it had to be a roster of 18, my picks will be:

  • Captain America
  • Iron Man
  • Thor
  • Hank Pym
  • Ms. Marvel
  • Hawkeye
  • She-Hulk
  • Black Panther
  • Scarlet Witch
  • Dr. Strange
  • Spider-Man
  • Beast
  • Vision
  • Noh-Varr
  • Hercules
  • Valkyrie
  • Songbird (as a new recruit)
  • Rick Jones (as a new recruit)

JMS was the best thing to happen to modern Thor. After that it all went downhill.

  • Captain America as leader
  • Iron Man
  • Thor
  • Hawkeye
  • Ant-Man (or giant man or whatever Hank's calling himself these days)
  • Hulk (red or green I really don't mind though leaning towards red)
  • Spider-man
  • Captain Marvel (Carol Danvers)
  • Spider-Woman
  • Iron Fist
  • Doctor Strange
  • Scarlet Witch
  • Black Panther
  • Black Widow
  • Vision
  • Beast
  • Nova
  • Luke Cage

I believe that would fill the 18 character roster, not sure if they'll still have a "new avengers" team (I know the book's still going but really with that large a cast it could easily just spotlight other characters) so it's a mix of the old and new.

Well, just as long as they weren't on the former Avengers roster (excluding: Quake, Novarh or h.e you spell his name, Vision and Storm) and we get some fresh-faces instead of overused cash-cows, i'm alright.

I would love to see Sersi and Black Knight return. Other than that, I don't care...Hickman's writing...I'm buying.

No disrespect, but I like the team Hickman assembled more than these wishlists.
