AVENGERS ASSEMBLE! Marvel’s premier super-hero team has a long and storied history, dating back to Avengers #1 in 1963 and continuing through the property’s current billion-dollar film dynasty in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Over the course of nearly 60 years, dozens of characters have joined Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, both in print and on screen. And now the Great Pop Culture Debate podcast wants to determine the best Avengers member of all time — and we want YOUR opinions!
Below find a list of every official member of the Avengers (you can also find the survey here), listed in chronological order of them joining the team in the comics. If they were on an official Avengers roster, they count (but members of, say, Force Works or Avengers Academy, Avengers offshoots, would not). Note for the purpose of this list, we aren’t differentiating between a character in comics, movies, or video games. If you vote for Captain America, you could be voting for the comics version or the film version — doesn’t matter.
Did we miss your favorite Avenger? Add them to the field below, and we may discuss them in the warm-up to this episode. Then send to your friends and have them chime in what they listen to when they’re alone again (naturally).
The poll will run until January 22, 2021. Make sure to submit your answer by then!
The 32 top vote-getters will be discussed on Season 3 of the Great Pop Culture Debate podcast, debuting in March 2021. Check out our Episodes section to see which topics we’ve already tackled!
