    Luke Cage, a New New New, New Avenger.

    And breaking down the "News"

    1st- Formation of the New Avengers.

    2nd- Post Civil War New Avengers.

    3rd- Post Secret Invasion New Avengers.

    4th- Post Siege New Avengers.

    I believe the whole "New" concept is rather played out when the first announced member has been an Avenger for the past 7 years.

    I have a feeling what they mean by "new" here is a team composed of people not part of the original or common lineups. Look at the regular Avengers lineup, it has Iron man, Thor, Hawkeye and Cap. I think this will be Avengers we have seen but not old school guys. Guys like Spider-Man, Cage, Wolverine, Daredevil, maybe Hercules. A "B" list team for lack of a better word.

    Now, are the New Avengers just a renamed Thunderbolts? Or is this for reals another Avengers team? Either way, they could've foregone the Siege crossover and just shaken up the rosters.

    Is anyone really surprised? It's Marvel's top-selling franchise these days. Plus this lets Bendis keep his pet character Avengers while also having a real team again.

    It's just the name marvel is giving to the new direction they are headed. Since the Disassembled story, Marvel has been in a state where heroes are villains and villains are heroes. No one knows exactly which side is good. The "Heroic Age" is where good guys are good again.

    I'm glad we get to keep the New Avengers title because I really enjoyed it. However, there is something else on Wiki that should be taken into account, that I actually agree with:

    So basically, Bendis is saying that Captain America is the foundation for the Avengers? If my history is right, Captain America wasn't even the 1st member, so how does this work? And since Captain America is no longer on the New Avengers title, per Bendis' statement, can this squad really be considered Avengers?

    Seems like they were saying that as along as Captain gave them the okay, then it was enough to validate them as Avengers.

    Even though Cap isn't a founding member, the team really didn't become stable until he joined so he is considered the foundation of the Avengers. Like Superman isn't a founding member of the JLA, but is considered that team's foundation.

    Though that quote describes post-Civil War status, and more than likely will change with the Heroic Age. The New Avengers will probably just be an Avengers West Coast or something.

    Anybody know if New Avengers is rebooting to a new issue 1, or are they continuing the current numbering?

    Most likely a reboot, everything else is rebooting.

    my guess with Wolverine is that he'll be on all three Avengers titles (along with both X-Men titles)
