Hulk, though I like everyone from the selection.

Hercules, naturally.

I suppose I just went with the classic choice.

Herc is winner and he's not in any comic right now. /sad.

You forgot Hyperion and Sentry btw.

In my opinion, this is how my favorite list would go.

Thor>Sentry>Hercules>Wonder Man>Namor>Gilgamesh>Hyperion>Rulk>Thing>Hulk.

Ben Grim and Herc are my two favorites, as they both have the right attitude to be Avengers Elite......Thing has a true "never quit, never say die" attitude and will face anyone down, even if he is out-classed (like Captain America), while Hercules has epitomized the heroic ideal & attitude for over 3000 years, always defends and protects the weak & innocent, and finally he lives life to the fullest!

Nice assessment. It's true that it's easy to overlook either of these guys when they're next to Thor or the Hulk, but they really are two of Marvel's greatest characters, and easily just as interesting as any classic Avengers.

Hell Yeah! Hercules and the Thing are the best!

@powerherc: I like greek and norse mythology and these super heroes are based on those two myths, so that us why these two are my favorite.

For me Hulk > Thing > Namor > Hercules > Sentry > Thor > Wonder Man > Everyone else.

#13 Posted by jloneblackheart (5467 posts) - - Show Bio

My order:

Thing > Herc > Rulk > Wonder Man > Hulk > Thor > Namor

I really wish that Herc was fully re-powered and available for the current Avenger's roster. I like him better than Hulk, IMHO.

@theacidskull: I never really cared for the Hulk and all the multiple personalities and stuff. A military general and strategist with the powers of the Hulk on the other hand...

Rulk is a good character, well...at least he became one after Jeff took over.

My list is...

  1. Thor - Is one of my favorites
  2. Hercules - I really liked him in Stern's TPBs
  3. Thing - As another poster said, and to which I agree, his "never give up, never say die" attitude is quite inspiring
  4. Hulk - I really only liked him starting from Avengers and Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes
  5. Wonder Man - Not a fan of this "pacifist" kick he's on (I have nothing against pacifists IRL, but for a super hero it's kind of pointless)
  6. Rulk - Never liked him as a character, personally.
  7. Namor - He's always been a bit of a douche, IMO.
  8. Gilgamesh - I know absolutely nothing about him.

Hulk followed by Thor

#26 Edited by Baberaham_Lincoln (896 posts) - - Show Bio

Hercules was my favourite, but he's MIA (i know he's over in the ultimates series now). Currently, it's a tie between thor and hyperion. Hickman's avengers has made it seem like they see each other as equals, and i really like the relationship they have with one another (see avengers 12 or 13 for reasons why)

#27 Posted by PowerHerc (78172 posts) - - Show Bio

Hercules. Still.

I voted Thor but had Luke Cage been an option then it would have definitely been him.

#42 Posted by Stefano (283 posts) - - Show Bio

Thor

Hercules, naturally.

No one can top the God Of Heroes.

What are they doing to Herc?

#45 Posted by PowerHerc (78172 posts) - - Show Bio

@waezi2: Except for a brief recent appearance in Defenders, Hercules has been unused and left depowered.

#46 Posted by Vitality (1755 posts) - - Show Bio

Of all time avengers...it would be between Thor and Sentry.

I voted for Thor on the list the OP gave.

Too bad, I thought the idea of depowered Herc had potential.

I would choose Thing or Namor normally but I don't count them as Avengers tbh.

Pity Ms Marvel wasn't on this list, although it does say Strongman.

@maccyd: Hey, you right! Didn't notice before. Totally sexist!
