There are so many cool Avengers line-ups, I decided they warranted another cover. As I mentioned yesterday, I hope for Avengers film sequels to feature more of their large roster. Unfortunately, because of rights issues, it will be very unlikely that I will see my favorite grouping on the big screen because the era I loved the most was when The Beast was an Avenger. I always felt that he fit in better there than with the X-Men once he evolved into his blue furry state. Of course these days we have Wolverine and now Storm as card carrying Avengers, but that just does not work for me at all - it smacks of a decision made by corporate number crunchers rather than driven by the plot. Don't even get me started on Spider-Man as an Avenger!
