When Marvel announced they were canceling all the Avengers book in preparation for The Heroic Age, we knew there was no way they'd cancel their popular books. As you know, New Avengers will be relaunching with a new issue #1. The question still remains, who are all the New Avengers?
 
We know that Luke Cage will be on the team even though he's supposed to be leading the new Thunderbolts. Spider-Man will be on the team as well. Wolverine can't be on enough teams so he's still going to be a New Avenger. It makes sense that Jessica Jones will be a New Avenger since her husband is and they've recently talked about her going back to being a superhero. The crazy announcement was that the Thing would be on the team. If we look at the cover image for issue #1 (to the right), it looks like Ms. Marvel will be on the team. The synopsis for the issue brings up an interesting idea.

Find out who the New Avengers are, where they call home (gotta see it to believe it!), which Dark Avenger has joined their ranks, and just who the interdimensional demonic threat to our existence is! These heroes have gathered to take on the threats too dark, too dangerous, and too bizarre for any other team of heroes.  The New Avengers are back!! And Bendis & Immonen are back with the Siege & Secret Invasion colorista Laura Martin!!  You didn't really think Marvel was going to cancel their number one ongoing title did you?  Heck no!!

A Dark Avenger on the New Avengers? It doesn't seem like there's much of a choice. I have to ask if it's that obvious? It won't be Norman. Venom, Bullseye and Moonstone are too evil to be on the team. Sentry is too crazy (and who knows if he'll survive Siege). Ares is dead...for now, but he would be a good choice if he can get better by the time the book rolls out. I don't see Daken on the team, especially if Wolverine is. Who does that leave?
 
It seems the obvious choice would be Noh-Varr. He's barely been on the Dark Avengers. It doesn't make sense to me that Bendis would bring him onto the Dark Avengers only to have him run off after he and Moonstone hooked up. I would think that Bendis has a bigger plan for him. He has changed his name to Protector (really?) so maybe he wants to do good now. Like I said, he's the obvious choice. But does that mean Bendis will go with the obvious one?
 
Which Dark Avenger do you think will become a New Avenger?

Hit the nail right on the head here, it HAS to be Noh-Varr. And when did he change his name to Protector?
 
Maybe it could still be the Sentry, if they change him into Marvel Man  (j/k)

My first thought was 'Sentry, d'uh'.  After all, he was an Avenger before being a Dark Avenger and it might give him a chance to 'redeem' himself.  However, I don't think fans care to read about him any more. 
 
So maybe it really is Noh-Varr??

@xerox-kitty:  I still like the Sentry and personally hope he's part of the Secret Avengers. As long as someone other than BENDIS is writing him.

Aslong as it's not Moonstone, I don't mind. She should be Moonstone again and kick some ass.

I was thinking about this quite a while back  as well- I always saw the new avengers as the "street team" that was characterized by their lack of "cosmic powerhouses" especially right after the Civil War where the Mighty Avengers had the likes of Sentry, Ares, Ms. Marvel and Wonder Man (I suppose you can throw Iron Man in there too) in their lineup - of course now Ms. Marvel's part of the New  Avengers but i still feel that it would be uncharacteristic of the new avengers to have someone like Sentry on the team. Noh-Varr is the most likely candidate I suppose but personally though I think its gonna be Victoria Hand - not an official Dark Avenger but she's got more panel time than Gargan in the comics! xD

I'm pretty sure it won't be Moonstone. If I remember correctly, she's been confirmed as a member of the new Thunderbolts (although, with Luke Cage on both teams, who knows?). If I had to guess, it'd be Noh-Varr as they've already set him up as a good guy.

I feel bad for the villains somehow, each of these guys are known for beating the crap out of goons and the bad guys will have a massive lynching on the hands of the avengers

When I read that and saw the cover I thought that maybe Carol Danvers wasn't under that mask.... 
In the Ms Marvel series Moonstone became "good" because of a lesson given to her by Carol.... so who knows! 
but you're right Nor-Varr makes more sense!

It almost has to be Noh-Varr.They won't put Daken on a team with Wolverine,Moonstone is a Thunderbolt,Bullseye is actually still a criminal,Sentry..well I don't know about Sentry,and I don't think Norman will live through Siege...and Ares is already dead.

Hope it's Noh-Varr.  New identity or not, he's a very cool underused character.  
 
Also the new Avenger's team is lacking a space guy.  Gotta be well rounded.

I'd be cheerful to read Noh-Varr or Ares. Easily the shining stars and most interesting characters to come out of Dark Avengers.

oh my god I miss the Avengers when they weren't all political and spastic. Can't heroes just be heroes for awhile?
 
Noh-Varr as the new Captain Marvel would have been great. It would have a Kyle Rayner on the Justice League feel. He's got the power but not the experience etc.

The way I see it Daken won't be near is dad, Sentry will be offed in Siege, Ares is gone, Moonstone is with the T-Bolts, Norman is off the wagon, Bullseye is a killer and no way will he be on the team, so that leaves Victoria.  Maybe she will direct the New Avengers on their missions and report to Steve of their accomplishments.

Even that obscenely unlikely scenario wouldn't make her a New Avenger. She's not a superhero/villain.

@AngelFrost: Hopefully she'll be somewhat of an Oracle but I doubt it -_- 

@Nobody: I was excited for the character but when Bendis abandoned the white haired boy...I no longer cared for his build up.  He's a good character but I don't want Bendis handling him.

Victoria Hand or Noh-Varr are the more logical choices. I mean, with the way Noh-Varr's story is going without a solo title, I could see him joining the New Avengers. Victoria Hand could also join with her recent actions in the latest Dark Avengers titles.

hes too evil
It could be Brock
 he wasnt a dark avenger
so... im jus saying
 
Hell it can even be Moonstone IMO
How?
Well 1st is that shes goin to be a tbolt

Honestly just to throw a serious curve ball in this discussion, has anybody thought about Harry as American Son being in the New Avengers. According to their page he is still technically a member, he has no reason to stay loyal to Osborn and it could create a new hero with lots of potential. I mean like someone said earlier the New Avengers were always a street team, you don't call them when Galactus comes, even the biggest hitters on the team are B-listers (on their own, not when they're in a team, so don't freak with me saying it). This would give Harry a good chance to get an a** load of publicity and a big shot in his fan base. Not to mention it will help pull him away from the whole Dark Reign break down with his father. Harry would not only make waves in the universe, it would be pretty interesting to see his interactions with Spider-man if nothing else, hell I would like to see a short series with the two as partners, but that's just me.
 
Noh-Varr is to expected and I would much rather see him do his solo thing as a hero before he gets on another team because I haven't seen him do much on his own with no group or army to back him, I'm not putting him down I just want to see him get more stripes alone
