I would love it, get a chance to meet my favorite character! 20%

Would you be a fan of The Avengers, or a huge Anti-Avenger? I personally be a supporter.

As an Average Viner, I'd already be as physically gifted as Cap/Bucky/T'Challa, as good in spy-work as Nat, as good a marksman as Clint, as skilled as Matt/Danny, as lethal as May/Ward/Bobbi, and as brutal as Frank.

I'd solo the verse.

tbh it would probably suck, a lot of people would be getting killed all the time, everyday someone new is trying to destroy the planet or take it over, my ass would try to leave Earth and live someone better

None of the average humans in the marvel universe ever seem happy. Plus, because 616 has always tried to parallel real life, the current era is way too divisive.

It would be pretty awesome, but horrifying at the same time.

It wouldn’t be that bad.

In civil war, for all of the biggest destructive moments in the MCU, there were only a couple hundred casualties.

Don’t see how that’s different from right now to be honest.

Anti-Avenger.

Realistically, the governments around the world will be quick to admonish the Avengers' vigilantism and would likely put up the Sokovia Accords way before the events of Civil War.

Freedom and self-responsibility is a myth when it comes to high stakes moves - figures such as politicians and people with a lot of powers on their hands (e.g.: Avengers).

The world would constantly be under threat. It would be a nightmare. That being said, it would be cool to have super powered people. So.... mixed feelings?

Michigan is a no fault insurance state... but I don't have Hulk insurance... and i know state farm isn't covering Chituri attacks or crap like that.

it would generally be awful. Super powered beings is kinda cool but if you are the 99.9% of the rest of humanity it would blow.

It would be terrifying. I would fear for me and my families lives.

The only way I would likely be for the Avengers is if I knew some of them personally. Otherwise I would probably just be scared of them and everyone.

That wouldn't work in real life, they destroy things like new York on a yearly basis. And I don't want to bring them fights way out of our league to our planet, like what would we do if they lost to thanos because they don't have PIS? The earth will be destroyed. Let them have their fights on a different.. solar system

@insertnewname: You don't have be to rude. And I'm not stupid, I just asked a simple question to see how others would view that reality. You should really learn about manners before coming on my post and insulting me. :/

@insertnewname: Thank you. All I ask is respect and remember what Kingpin's dad told him? "You gotta give respect if you want it." I know the current MCU is full of destruction and the earth we all know and love, wouldn't last as long as the MCU did. There are just better ways of saying without insulting you know? Have a good day.

Mixed feelings. Superheroes would be real and that would fun, but I would hate the fact that the Earth is always under the threat of being taken over or destroyed.

On some aspects a lot of things would be much better -such as technology & medicine and at the same time some would be way worse like Sokovia incident or Thanos... so I guess it's a mixed feeling.

I'd hate it since it would be mean there's a chance some random alien or extra-dimensional being could wipe out life on earth and because this is real life, no plot armor exists to ensure our super-powered defenders will win every time.

It would depend. If I got super-powers it'd be awesome. If not (the more likely scenario), it would be horrifying.

Na, noone during war time loved the fact that they are in constant war. I. Everyone gets sick of the fighting. the constant death and destruction. You'd get numb to it. I would hate it. I would also hate the avengers tbh.

Realistically the biggest destruction from New York being attacked would be the catastrophic financial collapse that would have followed suit.

My answer whenever somebody brings up the "Imagine superheroes/fantasy/magic was real" is always "Hell to the NAW!". Everyone is always looking at the great powers etc. forgetting that you could end up being that casualty that drives the plot forward for others. xD

  • Killed by aliens
  • Chopped up and put in a fridge for your significant other
  • On the wrong end of a detonation that triggers the Sokovia accords
  • A Sokovian townsman
  • Dealing with Brainiac's bullshit
  • Etc. x1,000,000

Nuh-uh. Nope. Hell naw. Avengers supporter I surely would be. That's pretty much the only 911 you're gonna get when super-criminal shit hits the fan. But I'll keep my Avengers in the comic page and cinema screens thank you. The living are not done with me yet. xD

I'd live in a world where in a city wide alien invasion only 60 people die? Where Nazis were so insignificant their existence could be completely ignored? Where an AI got self awareness and didn't even think of a less convoluted and more effective ways to kill us all because, I dunno, "lolz"? Hell, I'd live in a world where a near city wide evacuation can be achieved successfully in a span of what, less than an hour (magic!)? And there's also a flying machine that can contain/carry all of them and fly away towards the happy end?!

Of course, I'd love to live in a fairy tail.
