Avengers

Avengers Release Date: May 4th, 2012 - Marvel/Paramount
The Avengers is a team of fictional superhero characters in comic books published by Marvel Comics. Originally created using preexisting Marvel characters, variously created by writer-editor Stan Lee, artist and co-plotter Jack Kirby and others, the team first appeared in The Avengers #1 (Sept. 1963). Labelled "Earth's Mightiest Heroes", the Avengers originally consisted of Ant-Man, Wasp, Thor, Iron Man, and the Hulk. Almost from inception, however, the roster has been fluid - the Hulk departed and Captain America joined the team within the first four issues of the series. The rotating roster has become a hallmark of the team, although one theme remains consistent: the Avengers fight the foes no single superhero can withstand - hence their famous cry of "Avengers Assemble!" The team has featured humans, robots, gods, aliens, supernatural beings and even former villains.

Marvel movie villains that had potential Marvel movie villains that had potential
Marvel are smashing it with the comic book movies but the one thing that has been lacking in the MCU is the depth and motivation of their villains. The performances have been good but I can't help but feel that some of the villains had much more potential that could have been used. Just a few of my picks. - mrbox
