After reading a few issues of this series, I feel it's time to state the obvious: This is the "Negro League Avengers" because Heaven forbid we have more than 2 black people on the regular Avengers team at any given time. Any more than 2 upsets the white male comic fans too much (re: the Heimdall controversy from the Thor movies, Michael B. Jordan winning the role of Johnny Storm in the new Fantastic Four reboot). So Marvel's got these great black characters and Avengers is the showcase brand these days so use'em or lose 'em is the prevailing attitude. But it reeks of something from the '50s, segregation days style.

The "Real Avengers" (the usually all-white ones, though to be fair Black Widow is Russian, Logan is Canuck, and Thor is not human) get to save the universe! The "Negro League Avengers" get to save New York City...which is important, sure.... but it's not the same. It's probably Cap's fault in-universe, subconsciously. HOWEVER, given the state of the writing of the Avengers book, I can't complain too much about this. You can do a lot more with Mighty story-wise than you can do with the main book at this point in time. There's a lot of potential here to make this a better Avengers book rather than just a "street" book or an Avengers-lite (Or Dark Avengers, lol). I just hope it lasts long enough to make that happen.

This is probably why Spiderman couldn't be on the team. Can't have white Spidey being upstaged by "boss man" Luke Cage, now can we? That and Spidey is an unstable jerk, so...no...
