I agree--it was a great read. Hopefully the surviving characters will continue to turn up here and there.
: 1. Wonder Man (I donít see him as a leader,

If Marvel ever gets around to doing something with Omega Flight (beyond their supporting role in the Weapon Omega storyline in MCP), I think having USAgent in Canada has a lot of potential.
: 3. Machine Man (As long as he keeps his
: current look and personality)
I think Machine Man is a bit too mentally unstable at the moment for an Avengers team--he is starting to seem a bit psychotic.
: 5. Mockingbird (It will have to be explained
: how she escaped hell and made it onto a
: space ship if she truly isnít a Skrull)
I think the explanation would be that she never died, and it was a Skrull imposter that died instead of Bobbi...
: 6. Songbird (I just want her to be an
: Avenger already!)
I think she's too important to the T-BOLTS book right now, as the main voice of reason and morality among the other darker characters. Her role in the current team dynamic is too important to remove her.
: 7. Tigra (As long as they donít pull out the

: Itís been done to death at this point)
: 8. Blazing Skull (He was the best part of

Yeah, I was disappointed at how quickly he was written out of LAST DEFENDERS.
: 9. Persuasion, AKA the Purple Girl (A hot

Again, if Omega Flight ever gets going again, I think having Julia there would be fun--and it makes sense for her to be there right now, given her position on the SHRA. But wherever she ends up, hopefully they continue exploring her romance with Shroud...
: 14. Namor (Iíve always loved Namor as an

: the West Coasters better.)
Hmm. I'd have a hard time seeing that--usually the only way he tolerates being an Avenger is having Cap around. The West Coast team doesn't include any of the guys he would normally feel comfortable with (except maybe Blazing Skull, on your roster).
My WCA roster would probably look something like:
Blizzard (trying again to be a hero after the T-Bolts dumped him)
