What is the best Avengers line-up?

#1 Posted by Or35ti (1101 posts) - - Show Bio

Ok, so a while back I decided to make a list of what I considered the best Justice League line-up (http://www.comicvine.com/myvine/or35ti/my-ideal-justice-league-line-up/75-32924/) and it got me thinking that the Avengers doesn't really have such a strict default core team like the Justice League has. When you ask a comic fan to name the core members of the Justice League they will say Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Flash, Aquaman and Martian Manhunter (now Cyborg) and almost every incarnation includes at least 5 of these 7 members. But with the Avengers and their ever-changing roster what would be considered the most memorable and default core line-up? Now with the movie coming up everyone's gonna say Captain America, Iron Man, Thor and Hulk and that's cool, I love those characters. So let's pick the ideal line-up for the core team of Avengers. Who are Marvel's greatest superheroes and who would make the Avengers Marvel's most iconic, powerful, and diverse team out there? I'll start by adding Spider-Man and Wolverine to the characters I mentioned previously as they are arguably Marvel's two most popular characters. The team has to include at least 6 characters but no more than 12. Let the discussion begin!

Cool list. But what about some of Marvel's other icons? We're talking about the whole Marvel U here

This has definitely been done. 
Personally I like the multiple teams.

Im a tad too late but hey I feel like joining the party. I have alot of favorite rosters but my number one has to be from issues 28-59.

Captain America



Scarlet Witch



I am a huge fan of Pym, and him as Goliath is still one of my favorite runs, Thor and Iron Man was apart of these team for a few issues. Hercules, Vision and Black Panther all joined the avengers, it also started the sub plot of Hank's fall. Personally I find it hard to find a better line-up for me, others may have differing opinions. If anyone is interested in reading this team I have set-up a reading order:

The Avengers 28 (MAY 1966)
The Avengers 29 (JUN 1966)
The Avengers 30 (JUL 1966)
