So I am a big fan of Marvel's Civil War (except the ending which was completely underwhelming) and the aftermath is gearing up to be even better (we can hope). I just read the Inititave, and found Tony Stark's position so much fun. Most heroes are working for SHIELD now, and Stark is running SHIELD. He gets to now pick and choose from the best the best. Who would you choose? A simple 7 person roster, try to keep in mind some heroes are still not registered, but some villians are! Ironman She-Hulk Thor Marvel Girl Mr Fantastic Shadowcat Blackwidow Ironman is kind of the default, he is head of SHIELD, so there is no reason for him not to be on the Avengers (plus the brains, the backing and the technology are valuable assets). She-Hulk I have always loved, plus having a massive strong "person" is just an essential. Thor is still missing, but Tony does have the ability to make a new clone, and hopefully would be smart enough to work the 'bugs' out. If not Thor, then Sentry. Both for the power level really. Marvel Girl! Rachel Summers being one of the most powerful psi-talents on the planet is needed for the team. The Avengers have rarely used psi-talents, it is time to change that. Mr. Fantastic wouldn't stay with the team long, cause the Fantastic Four always reunite, but his mind puts Tony's to shame, having a big brain like that could prove useful. Shadowcat was an Agent of SHIELD for two seconds right? Plus for undercover work, who can beat someone able to walk through walls? Which brings us to Blackwidow. Her black-ops training and contacts have always served the team well.
