I think Bendis is playing on the character's history of being unstable mentally and as a result he believes the Avengers do more harm than good.
As for this being out of character? It was established long ago by LOTS of writers that ionic powers erode on people's sanity. maybe he got a reprieve through his last resurrection and it finally tipped him over the edge after Disassembled, the Civil War, House of M, WWH and Dark Reign. All of those in a way were Avenger related so in his warped view the Avengers actions were a trigger for these reactions that resulted in death and suffering for his friends.
I can see why D-Man, Ethan Edwards, Anti-Venom and Black Goliath's kid are on this team given that they're not exactly examples of perfect mental health....but the rest of the roster feels kind of shoehorned in.
The art was ok but I feel it could've used better colorist. Del'Otto's transition from a painter to a penciler still retains the feel of his cover work. the coloring though....eh.
Oh yeah, Avengers Mansion is becoming the new X-Mansion, it's getting blown up pretty often
