^ During Fear Itself. Luke Cage and Jessica Jones convinced him to join after he saved their daughters life from Nazi mechs attacking Avengers mansion.

(Wow. Only when talking about comics can you write a sentence like that. )

He's not on the team now though as I recall, so basically he was just a guest-star for a couple issues...

Re: AVENGERS: Grade, Reviews, Discuss, DVD & Sequel **SPOILERS**

The idea that a bare bones edition of The Avengers would hit mid-September came as odd to me when I first heard it. For the fact that it would still likely be playing in a few hundred theaters. Even if those were $1 cinemas.

Now, this new rumor I'm hearing of Disney allegedly planning an Avengers re-release with additional footage, up to 30minutes, puts things a bit more in perspective. It's from AICN so keep the salt handy but I'm hoping it's true.
Could the nation’s cinemas be getting a 35-minute-longer “director’s cut” of Joss Whedon’s “Marvel’s The Avengers” this August?

Such a cut is already rumored for a forthcoming Blu-ray release.

Both ComicBook.com and SuperHeroAuthority have a source who says Disney could make it happen ahead of the movie’s expected Blu-ray release this fall.

A three-hour version of the superhero epic might find its way to the big screen in an effort to make “Avengers” the all-time domestic box office champ.

All-time top domestic grosses as of June 11 (in millions):
$760.5 Avatar
$658.6 Titanic
$573.7 The Avengers
$533.3 The Dark Knight
$474.5 The Phantom Menace

I find this a smashing idea. It would also likely help promote the Blu-ray.
So having the Directors Cut in cinemas while the original theatrical version comes to DVD as a glorified commercial for the Blu-Ray sounds like a solid plan. Plus add steam to push The Avengers into the top domestic slot over Avatar(I film I find MEH).

Really? While I don't read the Avengers main comic, I am reading the X-Men vs. Avengers mini, and he's shown up there alongside The Avengers.

Maybe he's one of those "I won't show up to the meetings, but I'll be there when you really need me" members.

No. He was on the New Avengers team during the Osborn arc and assembled with everyone else at the beginining of AvX.

Take for example CSI NY and Without a Trace, WaT crossovers over with CSI, CSI spin-offs Miami which spin-offs off CSI NY, so logically WaT is set in the same NY as CSI NY, and yet it never makes mention of the CSI NY "Cabbie Killer".
I once took a year-long screenwriting course in college, in which we'd all read each others' scenes aloud. I was writing a rom-com, with the last scene being a wedding. The teacher was reading my narration bits on that final day, and she got a special script the other readers didn't, and thus read aloud the part where the protagonists from all the other scripts stood waving and cheering as my leads smooched.

Minds were blown.

The Avengers has now officially passed the $1.4 BILLION mark worldwide. It's still yet to open in Japan for some reason.
The film is roughly $23.5 million away from $600 million domestically. It should get there in about two weeks at it's current pace even accounting for estimated theater loss. July 4th will be another slight surge for the film. No doubt from those double dipping on their Marvel Cinema experience when they see The Amazing Spider-man.
