Right, a century that's only a dozen years old. Cool for the little kids out there who only know comics from the last 10 years or so, or most likely just the movies, not so much for most of us who've seen a little more mileage than that. I agree that Spider-Man should be kept to his own franchise. It's a much better fit for the web-slinger, and the Avengers has had so many great members throughout the years that there are plenty of other cool ones to utilize.
