I see your point, but I think Baron Z forms the team based on his ego, charisma, and natural leadership. Dr. Sammy Sterns, "The Leader" in name only at the beginning, is clever enough to let Baron Z lead the team while manipulating him and sneakily usurping his power. Once he has the reins of the MOE, enter the follow-up movie: Hulk 2: Gamma Ray Boogaloo.
And I agree, let's get some estrogen on the team. Spider-woman, re-named for obvious reasons, in her yummy costume, could be a double agent of Hydra and SHIELD, and would be a great foil for Natasha. Moonstone? Moondragon (Guardians of the Galaxy riff)? After defeating the Avengers, the could all eat Moon pies at some obscure NY deli.
