who would keep reading after seeing that first name.

Flash Thompson JUST joined a month ago. And even though I love his character he has had one mission....and he failed...(even though he was trying to be the good guy he still failed). How could someone be put on this list after being a member for a month and not even doing anything beneficial to the group?

They did numbers 1-10 then said "crap I told my boss i'd make 50..... Jim start yelling out some names to me!"

Cap should be before Thor, IMO.

I think this list is based on votes.IGN is a gaming website.Althought they care about comics and comic related films I don't expect this list to be accurate.Once I realized Bullseye was on the list I gave up pretending this list holds any weight.Many of those characters were terrible Avengers too.

This list pisses me of.

Mac Gargan Venom making the Top 20, Mr. Fantastic and Invisible Woman being there, Nick Fury even being on this list.

So you made two threads of these? ...
Thor #1? SMH.
At least they know Jarvis is a better Avenger than Storm :D

Agreed. IGN are better at their Hero/Villain lists, those I agreed with

I would give Cap number 1 over Thor, though.

Some of the entries are stupid, and the Dark Avengers shouldn't count. But I was punching the air with joy when I saw Ms Marvel get so close to the top 10.

Also, I'm just old-fasioned, but I don't think Spider-Man and Wolverine count.

I agree with number one, although I'm surprised Cap didn't get it. But I'm happy with the results.

Thor is such a boring Avenger. People are just super-biased because he is incredibly powerful, but it definitely doesn't make you the BEST Avenger.

Stark has been more of an asset (in battle, and outside) than him in my opinion.

ye-gads, there's been a lot of crappy Avengers, but I never realized how popular some of them are!

@oldnightcrawler: Maybe this poll is more, "Favourite characters who have been Avengers" rather than actually basing their opinions on what each character has done as an Avenger.

yeah, but with 2 million voters, I feel pretty confident that it was probably at least a bit of both.

How is Storm on the list, she was an avenger for three issues and didn't do anything, and Ant-Man..? Which one?

She probably got voted up based on people liking her in other things, rather than her merits as an Avenger.

this is IGN so you can't really take it seriously.

Also Red-Hulk, Storm and Nick Fury should not be on this list. And really shouldn't even be considered Avengers.

I like Ares, but I question his ranking as well
