I was a big fan of the first West Coast Avengers mini-series and the ongoing series that followed it. The Avengers had included a lot of cool members over the years and the idea of a second team operating concurrently would allow more characters to be showcased. Little did I realize what a trend that would start! Now not only are certain characters diluted by multiple versions of them running around, entire teams have their own variants. There are multiple versions of the Avengers, X-Men and the Justice League operating simultaneously and it's getting pretty crowded out there. It used to be an honor to join the Avengers or the JLA... now it makes a character more unique if they've never been a member!
