Most popular Avenger?

#1 Edited by WWQ3 (33 posts) - - Show Bio

I think its definitely Captain America. When I think of Avengers, I immediately think of him.

@wwq3: well that is you. most people think of iron man. he started it all. he funds it.

Wasn't it technically Ant-Man who 'started it all', seeing as it was his idea for the teamup to become a permanent thing? Plus Wasp was the one who came up with the name.

Hulk or Thor. If you are talking about the movies than its Iron Man.

I don't think

This. Spider-Man is Marvel's most popular character. It only makes sense that he's the most popular Avenger. If we're talking about the most popular character that we automatically associated with the team (which wouldn't be Spider-Man because he's a newer member) I would say the big 3 (Cap,Iron Man,Hulk) are about neck and neck for the top spot. Thor is gaining in popularity because of the films but simply as a Marvel Comics character I don't think he's more popular than Iron Man,Hulk or Cap.

I could say the same for Thor.

This seems right.

In general it's Spider-Man but most people aren't aware he's an Avenger so I'm going with Iron Man.

@vance_astro:

Ummm...no...The big three (that is, the Avengers Trio) are Iron Man, Captain America, and Thor. The tech hero. The meta/natural/mutant hero. And the magic based hero.

While I agree with you as far as I'd say whom I personally think The Avenger's Big Three are, Vance was talking about popularity, and the Hulk is more popular than Thor.

Oh. Well, yeah. In popularity, that's how it goes. In fact though, what I said is how it goes.

It's all opinion based.

Currently, Iron Man seems to be the most popular Avenger due to the success of the movies.

Iron Man.

Actually, Cap was voted most popular Marvel character and beat Spidey by like 5 votes. Cap is the best

Where on some comic book site? Spider-Man is easily much more popular than Cap and the most popular Marvel character period.

Voted where? Spider-man is a super-hero, who is known by nearly everyone, while a lot of people, who don't read comics, don't know, who he is.

Us peak humans and mutants might say Cap but the average human will say Ironman.

#25 Edited by Experio (16266 posts) - - Show Bio

The top three are

Cap= Leadership

Ironman= Money and intelligent

Thor= Most powerful

#26 Posted by MartianManhunterIsBetterThanCyborg (2243 posts) - - Show Bio

Iron Man because of RDJ

Spider-man. Easily Marvel's most popular character in general

#28 Posted by Veshark (9058 posts) - - Show Bio

Among the general public: Iron Man

Among comic fandom: Captain America

If the question is 'who is the most popular hero who has been an Avenger', I would go with Spidey, naturally. But when most of think of the 'Avengers', Spidey isn't really the first hero that springs to mind. I'd go with Cap for that.

Iron man
