There is only one answer.

Sandman because that was the best we've ever seen of him outside being a one note villain(Though a very cool one note villain)

Why did 40% choose Spider-Man? I didn't even know Spider-Man WAS an Avenger in the 90's I had to look it up. I can't remember a roster he was active on or what he did while on the team.

@Vance Astro: His only really contribution in the 90s was mostly the forgotten Infinity Union story where both he and Sersi joined.

He was in a couple of issues afterwards, and he was actually an Avenger during Infinity Gauntlet (it's not mentioned however)...but he was then fired a few months later in Captain America #401 for not showing up for Operation Galactic Storm and for being busy all the time and unreliable.

He kiinda rejoined for a sole issue in Avengers vol. 3 where he left almost instantly because again he was too busy to dedicate himself to the team.

Ahhhhhhh, when comics made sense.

I figured you would know, but the question is does everyone who is choosing Spider-Man remember this arc or did they just come into the thread and click a random choice. Spider-Man is a great character IMO, and he's definitely one of my favorites but when I think of Spider-Man I don't think of him as a great Avenger even recently when he was a more active member, he's just a great hero all round. I've read so much Avengers it's hard for me to remember arcs some times, it's why I keep so many scans but I'm sure even if I had remembered Spider-Man's contribution he wouldn't have been my choice. Thanks for the information BTW.

@Vance Astro: Doubt it, but I do admit to liking Spider-Man as an Avenger in this period more than recently since they just handled it with far more common sense that now. But it frustrates me since I was legitimately torn between 5 characters on here and it pains me to see all over half the others don't have any votes in exchange for what's obviously Mr. Popular.

But on the same note, I also doubt the one guy who voted for Vision considered that the real Vision obviously joined well and truly before the 90s and this time it was a Vision who tried to kill most the Avengers and molest Crystal. Even Marvel don't remember this guy...

Am I correct in guessing that the 5 was Sersi,Crystal,Iron Man,Spider-Woman & Thunderstrike?

@Vance Astro: Swap out Teen Tony and Thunderstrike for Madame Masque and Sandman and yeah. (Swordsman, Machine Man and Darkhawk are also among ones I considered voting for)
