Plus seriously, it's Aquaman. Does anyone actually like him?
His fan base has actually grown a bit in the past years or so, even though i really don't dig into him that much.
The Avengers line up isn't nearly as well known. They probably could've stuck anybody by Iron Man, Cap and Hulk and the unknowing audience would've still watched and not have noticed a thing. I do recall a bunch of people pissed that Spider-Man wasn't announced for it, but he's certainly not an original member.
