Wolverine and the Avengers

So Marvel Comics is relaunching all the Avengers' books this summer to usher in the new "Heroic Age" storyline. They are releasing Avenger #1, New Avengers #1, Secret Avengers #1 and the sure to be terrible Avengers Academy #1. Nothing surprising about this of course, and I'm totally okay with it. Heck, maybe I'll even pick up a few issues.

Wait a second; something's wrong but I can't put my finger on it. Let's look at the cover of Avengers #1.

Two anti-heroes, a super villain, an obvious loner and one real superhero
What is this? The Suicide Squad?

Okay, okay, we got Thor and Iron Man and Bucky America. Cool, cool. Now let me see the cover of New Avengers #1.

No joke here. Just note that The Thing/Ben Grimm is too cool for school

Holy socks! Is Wolverine on both squads of the team? Clearly Spider-Man is as well, but Wolverine is also a member of several squads of X-Men on top of also being the star of about 164 ongoing series!

So let's streamline the whole company and have Wolverine star in every book every month. Can you smell the profits?!?
