Best Characters in The Avengers (2012)

The Avenegrs has hit the big screen and has smashed the box office to pieces! To honor the honorable superhero flick, here's the list commemorating the movie's best characters.

The Top Ten

1 Loki Loki Loki Laufeyson, or Loki Odinson, is a fictional character appearing in the American comic books published by Marvel Comics. He is the adoptive brother and archenemy of Thor, and is known as the "God of Mischief". In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the character has been portrayed by Tom Hiddleston.

Tom Hiddleston not only because of him but he can make Loki more alive as the way he should be
it's hard to make 2 emotional in the same time but Tom can pull it out and make loki more and more interesting
great actor

Although Loki is a bad guy but I would be like him too if my life was a lie
Anyway Tom Hiddleston did a great job on acting as Loki

Because I love him and Is the best villian ever and tom hiddleston es the best in the World, great actor and great person

Best character

2 Tony Stark / Iron Man

He bring all the humor, knowledge and attitude to the rest of the characters! He's awesome! And after all he's the one who saved the day on his life expense

Iron man is the most funny and most brilliant. And he got under loki's skin when the mind controlling

IRON MAN is the best, there is no comparison he will destroy anyone

Thanos is dead

3 Bruce Banner / The Incredible Hulk

I must agree with someone who said "The scene with Hulk vs Loki was one of the funniest" thing I saw in a superhero movie. Also I have taken several acting classes in high school and college and this Hulk was very believable. The actor did it all on his own merits. This actor from nowhere stepped in and played two characters the doctor and the Hulk like he own the character and he made you believe what you saw and I truly enjoyed Bruce Banner character in this movie. When I was buying this movie the clerk said, "The Hulk stole the show. " After watching the movie I must say also The Hulk stole the show!

Hulk is the best because he not only is an unstoppable force, but he also helps them with the knowledge that he provides to the team to figure out what they're dealing with and how to destroy it.

I have seen previous 2 hulk movies but mark ruffalo makes impact as hulk and it suits him he is the best hulk

Hulk is the strongest of all.. The "Puny God" scene was one of the incredible one..HULK SMASHHH...

4 Steve Rogers / Captain America

Even though Captain America has no powers, he can take a punch and that is something I truly admire. He is brave and he never gives up in a fight. He is humble, kind, and willing to save others before himself. And as the only one with military experience, he rises as the natural leader of the Avengers. And also, he is HOT!

Captain America, although not as popular as the other heroes, has got a lot of heart, charisma and he's the leader of the group. I don't see hulk, iron man or any other as the leader.

He is the leader and is a truck. His best part was when the cops thought he was just stupid then he killed like 5 aliens in a row

He is my most favorite character in Marvel. - TheFourthWorld

5 Natasha Romanoff / Black Widow Natasha Romanoff / Black Widow Natalia Alianovna Romanoff, most known as Natasha Romanoff or the Black Widow, is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. She is one of the most talented spies and assassins in the entire world and is a founding member of the Avengers. The character was created more.

She's an assassin-turned-superhero that doesn't have any powers because she doesn't need any. No, she's not the most effective fighter on the team but I'm pretty sure Bruce ain't the one manipulating people into telling giving out vital information and I'm pretty sure Tony would fail miserably if he ever had pretend to be, I don't know, someone's assistant to get information on if someone would be good at working with a team.
She's brilliant. She manipulated the god of mischief himself into telling her his plans for defeating SHIELD and no one else on that team has the initially harmless persona that she uses to her advantage. In iron man 2 Tony fully believed that she was Pepper's assistant. Happy was completely convinced she was just a pretty assistant until she took out five or so men as he spent a longer amount of time fighting one.
She's cold, logical, and calculative. She basically assembled the team in the first place and then, surrounded by men with either real ...more

All I can say is Girl Power! That girl can kick major ass! She holds her ground with her other (male) teamates. Even though she has no powers, she proves why she is of important use for the Avengers. She had an interesting relationship with Hawkeye and surprisingly Hulk. My favorite part was when she tricks Loki.

To the person who said she was "lazy" read a comic book or watch her fight scenes then come back.

6 Thor Thor Thor Odinson is a fictional superhero appearing in the American comic books published by Marvel Comics. The character, based on the Norse mythological deity of the same name, is the Asgardian god of thunder and possesses the enchanted hammer Mjolnir, which grants him the ability of flight and weather more.

He is the GOD like character among all the Super Heroes group. Along with his Hammer, and lightning powers, He is the only one who has managed to fight HULK and suppress him. Besides he has got the Infinite powers and Strength. Taking down leviathan at one hit with his Hammer after being pierced with a knife... His character is the Best and powerful...

THOR is one of the greatest of the avengers. Two reasons: first, his a demigod that controls thunder with an amazing hammer. Second, he's maybe the only avenger that can defeat the incredible HULK

His hammer is best weapon
He has the power of lighting
Come on who doesn't love a guy who can fight with hulk? :-)

Thor is the best super hero of 2012 he was so smoth with he was the best of 2012 am down.

7 Clint Barton / Hawkeye Clint Barton / Hawkeye Clinton Francis "Clint" Barton, better known as Hawkeye, is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. He is a former special agent of S.H.I.E.L.D., where he worked under the supervision of Phil Coulson. Known for his use of the bow and arrow as his primary weapon, more.

I LOVE HAWKEYE he is the best character in marvel the avengers because his arrows can explode I also think he is the best because he does archery and archery is my favorite sport I am very related to him I think he can split an arrow in half just like I can GO HAWKEYE YOU RULE!

He was portrayed brilliantly By Jeremy renner and the character was so dynamic

Is awesome the top avenger by far it takes skill to do his work.

So bad he help loki,but it's because he was brainwashed

8 Agent Phil Coulson

He is the one that gives the Avengers something to avenge. Without him, Loki may have won.

He is the real hero, let and without superabilities

Nick Fury: Walk it off Phil, walk it off
Phil: Tahiti was great!

9 Nick Fury Nick Fury Colonel Nicholas Joseph Fury is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. Created by writer/artist Jack Kirby and writer Stan Lee, Fury first appeared in Sgt.

Fury be a bad boy

At least fury is on the list - MrHyde

10 Thanos Thanos Thanos is a fictional supervillain appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. The character first appeared in Iron Man #55.

THE best cameo appearance ever to be made in any movie. I can't wait to see how that'll effect future films

Easily one of the best cameos in any movie. I mean were any of you really expecting it?

Even though he hasn't been developed as some of the other villians,I prefer him. - awesomejo12

The Contenders

11 Dr. Erik Selvig

Seriously, what is there to like? I mean he spends most of the movie as loki's puppet. The only thing that he contributes to the film is opening the portal during the final battle

He is one funny guy! - A99

12 Jarvis

Jarvis the so awesome and who doesn't want a program that does everything and anything to protect you

13 Pepper Potts Pepper Potts

Come on, you can't not love Pepper Potts.

She is So annoying. Her purpose to the movie is rubbish.

She shouldn't be on the list :D

14 Maria Hill Maria Hill

Underrated character in my opinion, and Cobie Smulders is awesome!

Clever, Cool, beautiful and a crack shot. Come on who couldn't like her!

15 Clint Barton Clint Barton Clinton Francis "Clint" Barton, better known as Hawkeye, is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. He is a former special agent of S.H.I.E.L.D., where he worked under the supervision of Phil Coulson. Known for his use of the bow and arrow as his primary weapon, more.

I'm laughing so hard at this don't freak out Clint lovers he's up there under the name Hawkeye

Best best best. Why is he last. He is awesome with his bow and arrow and everything.

Clint is Hawkeye and Hawkeye is already up there js...

16 Shawarma

How is this not #1? He's one of the most developed character I've ever seen!

I saw him take out S.H.I.E.L.D., the Avengers, Deadpool, Silver Surfer, and the Guardians of the Galaxy in the issue when he teamed up with Falafel

But seriously. Who added this delicious food? - TheFourthWorld
