These characters have been Avengers for a fairly long time now, your definition of who is an Avenger should have adjusted because you've seen them as Avengers, being an Avenger obviously fits into their characters, because they are Avengers!
Except that they weren't written like the Avengers. I don't see how to make this any clearer. Okay, how about this - Nextwave. What if Jeph Loeb took over Nextwave. We ALL know how he'd write it. Would you still be calling them the Nextwave team in one year.
Because 5 years of a non-Avengers team compared to 40+ years otherwise says they were not written like Avengers. They weren't even written like the West Coast Avengers.
