The Top Ten Avengers


“Meet the angels from the earth
You’ll hide inside your cave, that’s right of course
And we know, we ain’t slow, we’re the avengers!”

T. Rex – “The Avengers”

An easier list might be “Top Ten Marvel Superheroes who were never Avengers.”

Is there more to being an Avenger than being super powered? How much should popularity factor in the equation? How about heroism? Comic book supervillains make as many heel-face-turns as often as professional wrestlers, so are past misdeeds instantly forgiven? What about longevity? Does the first class have an eternal leg up on every other hero just on the basis alone of being called the very first Avengers? What sets the Avengers apart from every other superhero team? Speaking of which, can you be considered an all-time Avenger if your main claim to fame is being a part of another team?

With that in mind, here are  our lists.
