Which Avenger are you?


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.

Captain America
Thor
Iron Man
Wasp
Giant Man
(Hulk)


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.’

Scarlet Witch
Quicvksilver

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.

The Vision
Black Knight
Black Panther

The 1980’s saw the Avengers team receive a number of new members, some returning heroes while others were new and surprising such as the X-Man known as the Beast.

Wonder Man
Ms. Marvel
Yellow Jacket
Black Widow
The Falcon
The Beast

In the 1990’s, the Avengers had many weird and unexpected additions, as the above image shows.

Mister Fantastic
Invisible Woman
Gilgamesh
Sersi (not shown) 

In the past seven years or so, the Avengers has spread out to encompass several monthly books and many many new team members.

Daredevil
Spider-Man
Wolverine
Moon Knight
Valkyrie
Spider-Woman
Hercules
Nova
War Machine
Luke Cage
Dr. Strange
Captain Marvel (Protector)
The Thing
Iron Fist 
Mockingbird 

And there’s more!!

Machine Man
Living Lightning
Swordsman
Mantis
The Human Torch (original)
Tigra
Hellcat
Moondragon
She-Hulk
Namor
Dr. Druid
U.S. Agent
Darkhawk
Jack of Hearts
Captain Britain
Ares
Storm

So I ask you, dear reader and comic book enthusiast, which Avenger are you?

  1. Hawkeye(so what if I’m a girl). Every single person I know has been coming up to me randomly and saying that!!! What’s funny is that he’s been my favorite Marvel character since I was 5!
