Next week, the Avengers premieres in the US. That means that each of you have under a week to get your home-made costume ready for the midnight showing. There are so many members to choose from and despite the length of this post below, this is only a portion of the total list.
Keep in mind the complexity of the costume and the fact that you’ll be sitting in a hot cinema wearing that cardboard armor/thong/inflated orange uniform, etc for over two hours… so dress to move.
The iconic line-up used (mostly) in the Joss Whedon film made its debut in the 5th issue when Captain America was defrosted into a world he never made. In the same issue, the Hulk left the team and it was a long time before he was seen in the Avengers again.
The most unusual line-up of the Avengers saw the loss of the heavy hitters Thor and Iron Man as well as the departure of the intellectual genius of Hank Pym. Filling that void was what became known as ‘Cap’s Kooky Quartet.’
The 1970’s Avengers saw the departure of Captain America and Iron Man and the inclusion of the Vision and Black Knight. Cap nominated Black Panther as a worthy replacement and he certainly fit the bill.
In the 1990’s, the Avengers had many weird and unexpected additions, as the above image shows.
Sersi (not shown)
Captain Marvel (Protector)
And there’s more!!
So I ask you, dear reader and comic book enthusiast, which Avenger are you?
