Trend Coast Notebooks
While the majority of the active roster of the Avengers were kidnapped and forced to participate in the Secret Wars, longtime member Vision declared himself chairman in chairwoman Wasp's absence. He had detected a great threat to come, the Dire Wraiths, and in order to better combat the threat, decided to establish a second active team of Avengers. He requested and received permission to do so from the U.S. government, which had begun to take a more active supervisory role towards the Avengers. Recently returned veteran member Hawkeye was appointed as chairman of the West Coast roster.
