8.Justice -- just missed
9.Quicksilver -- just missed
10.Ares -- not even a blip


Iron Man didn't make your Top 10? I'll be honest I included all the Busiek defined founders. So I just had to come up with another five and that was fairly easy. Not including Iron Man in an Avengers list just seemed wrong.

i may be off on my order, but IIRC, my top 10 was:

Cap
Hawkeye
Thor
Vizh
Witch
Beast
Hank Pym
Black Knight
Jan
Luke Cage

Tony would've been 11.

Luke Cage? Wow I wouldn't have expected that from you chap. Before I quit the Bendis Avengers he was the only thing about his run I liked. Cage on the Avengers was an awesome addition but I don't think he's earned a top 10 spot yet.

My list looks likes yours except minus Black Knight, Beast and Cage and add Wonder Man, Iron Man and Black Panther.

Cage is pretty much the ONLY thing i like about Bendis's stuff, and i think he fits fantastically in the Avengers; even better than Iron Fist, who i like better as a character. i gotta give credit where due.

and Panther and Simon are in my top 20, they just couldn't quite crack the top 10. and Dane Whitman's just my boy. second to Cap, he was pretty much my favorite Avenger from the Stern run.

You're wrong. You need to read the Ares mini, it was teh awesome and sets up some of what you see in Sacred Invasion.

I think Black Panther is the only one from my top 10 to make the list so far. I have my fingers, toes, and eyes crossed that my boy Wonder Man makes the top 10. :-D I think my other picks are shoo-ins.

Actually, if you think about it: It's a long established tradition in the Avengers to take in former villains and make them into heroes. At least one of who was, if I'm not mistaken, in your top ten! :-D

but like i said earlier, Hawkeye, the Widow, Wanda & Pietro...they all were reluctant villains at best. Ares is totally unrepentant.

And the Vision?

(And I'd argue that they weren't reluctant villains when they were originally written as such.:))

Yes an unrepentant CONSTRUCTION WORKER.

That is what he was doing when he was asked to join. :)

Do construction workers file alot of bogus insurance claims?

Is that why you hate them?

This is my list:

1. Clint "Yes!!! I ate your sandwich Cap!" Barton
2. Hank Pym - because I love underdogs
3. Captain America - because he's Cap yo'
4. Thor - God of Thunder = bad ass
5. Namor - because his default setting is kick ass first ask later
6. Vision - because everybody needs a computer
7. Hercules - because he's in the coolest Marvel comic atm
8. Black Knight - always bet on black
9. Captain Marvel (monica) - pure energy
10. Black Panther - because Wakanda is a great place to get away from it all

Hawkeye wanted to be a hero and just got conned. Widow was just working for her country. Witch and Pietro never saw eye to eye with mags and turned on him in their 2nd appearance.

Vision was programmed and immediately overcame it.


reluctant from the get-go. Ares, OTOH, has 40+ years of publication as a Loki-esque bad guy. big difference.

Okay, good man. Because very honestly and I know you disagree but Hawkeye definitely breaks the top 10. Especially because he was one of the first 10 avengers. Which speaking of:

1. Captain America
2. Hawkeye
3. Mockingbird
4. Scarlet Witch
5. Ant-man (scott lang)
6. Scott Lang
7. Vision
8. Hank Pym aka Yellowjacket
9. Tony Stark
10. Spiderman
