    Iron Man (Anthony Stark)

    Wounded, captured and forced to build a weapon by his enemies, billionaire industrialist Tony Stark instead created an advanced suit of armor to save his life and escape captivity. Now with a new outlook on life, Tony uses his money and intelligence to make the world a safer, better place as Iron Man.

      "Iron Man is one of the best Avengers characters out there in my opinion. He is a very rich and smart man. His suit is amazing as well."

    Captain America

    During the dark days of the early 1940's, a covert U.S. Military experiment turned Steve Rogers into America's first Super-Soldier, Captain America. Throughout the war, Cap and his partner Bucky fought alongside infantry and with a group of heroes known as the Invaders. In the closing months of World War II, Captain America and Bucky were both presumed dead in an explosion. A few decades later, Captain America was found trapped in ice and revived in the modern world.

Did you know that Janet van Dyne, also known as the Wasp, was the one who coined the name "The Avengers"? Another interesting thing worth mentioning is that The Avengers was born due to an issue of Daredevil missing its deadline for release. Unsure of what to do due to the publisher realizing that its first issue wasn't going to be prepared on time for its scheduled print run, Marvel's primary creative leader Stan Lee pitched in the idea of bringing in a couple of already-existing Marvel heroes together to form a team. Doing so would let them skip over the "in-depth origin story" part of introducing new characters. Thus, The Avengers was born.

After the positive reception of The Avengers comic issues, Marvel took it as a success and trademarked the team name in 1970, roughly 7 years after its inception. The aforementioned team always experienced a lot of changes in its roster, especially after the four original members left and were replaced by Hawkeye, Scarlet Witch, and Quicksilver. Interestingly, these three were surprising choices for members since they were previously considered Marvel villains within the universe. Presently, the franchise has been met with astounding success, bringing about a variety of Marvel movies based on The Avengers, as well as video games, and a wide selection of spin-offs.

      "Doctor Strange is one of my favorite characters! His attitude towards life and mindset on never giving up is really admirable. His cape is literally the coolest weapon ever. Should he have a fight against any other superhero, I think he would win."

    Spiderman (Peter Parker)

    Peter Parker was bitten by a radioactive spider while in high school, the spider bite caused him to develop powers and abilities similar to that of a spider. He was soon able to crawl up walls and sense imminent danger, and eventually even developed his own method of creating webs to swing from. Upon the death of his Uncle Ben due to Peter's indifference, Peter decided that 'With Great Power there must also come Great Responsibility', and thus became Spider-Man.

      "Me and a friend of mine got into a pretty long debate on who the best Avengers character was. He said Iron Man and I said T'Challa. We used this resource to compare hero attributes and get a better understanding of all the characters we wanted to compare. Great resource and I think i may have swayed my buddies opinion to agreeing with me."
