I don't mean like Bucky becoming Captain America or Rhody becoming Iron Man, if ether Cap, Thor or Iron Man died who would be the next most iconic/respected/leader to take their place 
 
DISCLAIMER: Iconic in canon, not what the fans think are most popular

Thor doesn't really have a replacement, unless you consider a mentally stable Sentry.

#3 Posted by primepower53 (5591 posts) - - Show Bio

I'd go with Pym, Hawkeye, or Black Panther.

Well I don't really mean power or job wise but who do the people of the Marvel Universe look up to next after the Thor, Cap and Iron Man

Iron Man? Maybe Pym, he was an original Avenger and a great Scientist.

Thor? maybe, Hercules, he is an acient warrior, immortal, and also he has been an Avenger a couple of times.

Captain America? I don't know, someone with a great sense of morality, and great leadership, Captain Mar-vell? Who knows?

for exampel if one of the DC Trinity died it would most likely be Green Lantern or Flash that would be the next in line.

In the Marvel Universe the only one of the Avengers Prime that has that acknowledgment is the Captain America, Thor is powerful, but nobdy call him to deal with threats, and Iron Man doesn't seem to be Cap's Equal in the Marvel Universe.

I just think he's a natural born leader, and one of the Avengers that's most "into" Avenging. He's one of the most iconic Avengers. Plus there's the fact that he's lead them before.

I think Iron Man does, I mean he ran the show during Civil War, sure the readers and half the heroes thought he was a douche but the public seen thought he was in the right

Likely members of the Fantastic Four, or they would just replace them with similar characters

Not in the same way as the Cap, people like Iron Man in the marvel universe, but they LOVE the Cap, all those that have gone to the War, the Cap was with them in the war, Iron Man is different.

#13 Edited by BlackArmor (6138 posts) - - Show Bio

Black Panther, Ms. Marvel, and Pym I guess, maybe Hulk and Spiderman would be options as well, I hate to think they'd pick Wolverine but I can see them doing it, Possibly Sentry

Actually there is a lot of guys that can replace them, that at the end they would earn the same respect as Steve, provided they have a connection with the people, I already posted my answers.

Spide, Wolvie, and Black Panther.

@BlackArmor@venomoushatred1001: I don't think Spider-Man would be up there, not yet at least. If Marvel aged there characters then I could see the younger generation of heroes looking up to Spidy like the current do to Cap

I wouldn't say that. Alot of heroes look up to Spidey: Gravity, Pat Mulligan, and the Avengers Academy students for example.

Bucky, War Machine and Valkyrie

#21 Posted by Gambit1024 (9843 posts) - - Show Bio

Sorry. Did not read the OP. Pym, Black Panther, and Ms. Marvel would be good choices

Yea but it's not like the super hero community would come at his beck and call like they would Cap

... T'Challa is more much a replacement for Tony than Steve's, and Bucky is not that... He has not a lot of things like steve, he looks nice as Captain America, but he is not that symbolic.

Cap would be the hardest to replace. It's hard to find someone with not only his leadership skills, but also has the symbolism he possesses. That being said, Black Panther would be a good choice because he knows a thing or two about being a leader and a symbol (at least in Wakanda). If not him, then Bucky. Is he a leader? No, but he most certainly could be a symbol. I mean, he was Cap's sidekick when he was still a propaganda tool during WWII. He knows what being a symbol means, and he was a damn good Cap when the situation called for it.

If everything went to hell, then Luke Cage would probably step up to lead the Avengers community. He's well respected and he knows how to inspire people.

Individually though:

Bucky Replaces Cap

Herc replaces Thor

War Machine replaces Iron Man

#31 Posted by jeanroygrant (20191 posts) - - Show Bio

For Thor=Beta Ray Bill or Sentry

For Captain America= Black Panther or Mr. Fantastic

For Ironman= War Machine or Captain Dynamo

If one of the Big Three Avengers ever went down in battle, there would never be a way to truly fill that hero's shoes or replace him.

The dynamic would simply have to change, perhaps even to the point where the team would never recover.

That's how things work in reality; someone dies and can never, ever be replaced in the hearts and minds of people whom care making things never the same.

#33 Posted by TDK_1997 (15396 posts) - - Show Bio

Black Panther or Hank Pym.

#34 Posted by SC (13970 posts) - - Show Bio

Depends if characters memories are working, but I think Monica Rambeau, Ms Marvel or Black Panther could fill in as far as respect and position among heroes and men alike.

Well if Captain dies the only person that has the same morality as he does: Spi-der-man but I don't think he has the leadership skills, even though I would love to see how the marvel writers make him learn some.

@Gambit1024: Did you not read the OP?

Actually a while back he called the Avengers to fight against the Juggernaut and the Exemplars. Both Iron Man and Thor came to his aide so did Prof X.

Anyway back to the topic: I see either Black Panther, Hank Pym, Sentry (if he's mentally stable), The Thing, Ms Marvel, War Machine, Spider-man, perhaps Reed Richards
