NO. Not even close.

Oooh! Which Avenger would I be? I'm leaning towards Spiderman, but I could see Wolverine too.

Spider-Man: clever quips, super-strong, relies on agility and danger-sense when swinging in and out of a fight from above

Wolverine: indestructible but almost always badly injured, known for cutting, eager to seek out fights

Hm. I wouldn't say either works (although Wolverine's closest. I'd be inclined to give Wolverine to Ron, though, since he is routinely destroyed but keeps coming back.) To be honest, I see you and Stone_Wolf as a Power Man/Iron Fist duo.

BB is SO ProfX!

I see myself as more the hulk...mostly I'm quiet, sit around and eat, but every now & again I freak out on Hawkeye (DogBreath, accurate, but annoying at times).

Or am I Thor...well intentioned but ignorant of earthman ways w/ a boysterous luster for life?

Storm is my favorite Avenger. It's too bad they killed her off in The Avengers: Days of Future Past.

i mean think about it its perfect

he constantly self-asserts his unstoppability

he has a thick metal brain encasement to protect his mind from any outside intrusion

he charges forward constantly refusing to be dissuaded by anything no matter how thrashed he gets from all sides

Was that before or after Gandalf led the Enterprise to Gryffindor?

It is, except that Juggernaut has never actually been an Avenger, unlike almost every other character in the Marvel universe.

It makes no sense that Storm wasn't at least asked to be an Avenger. Even The Wasp was at one point.

Wasn't the Wasp a core member?

Also, Google says she was.

Yes she was. But as soon as anybody with powerlevel > or = to The Wasp showed up, they should have gotten an invite.

84 Avengers Members Ranked From Worst To Best
Some of the greatest superheroes of all time have heeded the call of “Avengers Assemble!” Also, a lot of randos.

84. Dr. Druid
Dr. Druid
Marvel
So how do you get to be the worst Avenger? Dr. Druid — Dr. Anthony Ludgate Druid — was a psychiatrist (an occupation largely centered around sitting and talking), who got trained by an ancient mystic to be the backup sorcerer if anything happened to the more popular Doctor Strange. Besides being a literal superhero understudy, he also got mind-controlled by a villain named "Terminatrix," left the team in disgrace, joined another team, got mind-controlled again, faked his own death, betrayed at least one more team, and then bravely got killed for real.

83. Jack of Hearts
Jack of Hearts
Marvel
Jack of Hearts is a half-alien whose scientist father exposed him to experimental "zero fluid," giving him the power to shoot energy blasts. He chose a playing-card-themed identity for unclear reasons and hung out in space for a while, before joining the Avengers during an emergency hiring crisis, and eventually blew himself up in space — along with a child murderer he grabbed on the way. Classic super heroics.

82. Triathlon
Triathlon
Marvel
This dude is a disgraced Olypmic athlete who got his powers from a weird cult that subsequently pushed the Avengers to bring him on as a diversity hire as part of a secret plot to infiltrate the team. Very questionable. He later becomes the 3-D Man, maybe because he didn't feel dorky enough.

81. Justice
Justice
Marvel
Justice, aka Vance Astrovik, is about as generic as superheroes get. He's like some off-brand toy in a dollar store, and while he's not particularly offensive, he is depressingly bland.

80. The Forgotten One
The Forgotten One
Marvel
Rule of thumb when choosing your superhero name — don't make the joke that easy for future compilers of definitive rankings. The Forgotten One is Gilgamesh — you know, from the epic poem! From high school! Marvel's Gilgamesh is from Jack Kirby's race of Eternals, early godlike heroes created by aliens during prehistory. Gilgamesh joined the Avengers during another low-membership era, wore a bull's head over his regular head, and was eventually killed by a villain named "Neut."

79. Sersi
Sersi
Marvel
Sersi is another Eternal, so she's older than dirt, and palled around with the Avengers for a while before Captain America extended an official membership offer. Also, they already knew each other from when Cap traveled back to Ancient Mesopotamia. She was the inspiration for the character of the same name in Homer's Odyssey (older than dirt) and she can fly, manipulate minds, manipulate matter, and — sure, why not — is immortal.

78. Blue Marvel
Blue Marvel
Marvel
We had to look this guy up. Blue Marvel debuted in 2008 as one of Marvel's occasional Superman analogs (see The Sentry higher on the list — but not that much higher). He seems like a pretty cool guy; a Korean War veteran (older superheroes are pretty rare!) who became a living antimatter reactor, got Superman-ish powers, hung out with JFK, fought racial injustice, and eventually teamed up with Luke Cage's Mighty Avengers team. So, at least now we know who he is — and so do you!

77. White Tiger
White Tiger
Marvel
Ava Ayala is the fifth hero to don the name and costume of White Tiger, an originally male hero from the 1970s, and a title passed on to both male and female characters — although notably always nonwhite. The current White Tiger derives increased strength and agility from magical tiger amulets she inherited from her brother, the original White Tiger. She's also a pretty big character on the Ultimate Spider-Man cartoon.

76. The Original Human Torch
The Original Human Torch
Marvel
This isn't Johnny Storm, the famous Human Torch from the Fantastic Four. Oh, no. This is the original android Human Torch who debuted in 1939 and was a member of the Invaders with Captain America and Namor in World War II. This is the Human Torch that no one really cares about, and has "human" in his name despite being a robot.

The bottom ten or so...for the rest go to...
