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 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.

Finding out he is a monster parents tell their children about at night, Loki seeking the love of his father and to be an equal to that of Thor, instead of being but shadow to the perfect son that could do no wrong. Loki is the misunderstood lonely and lovable villain we all want to just hug and accept for who he is. So even though Loki has joined the dark side he walks on a fine line of redemption towards that of the light.

(It also helps that Tom is drop dead gorgeous and those a wonderful job at portraying our devilish god of chaos! )

I Love Thor and Loki. Loki rules. He is also attractive haha. But lets get serious. If you found out your whole life was a lie and your not really who you thought you were, how would you feel? Especially being in a siblings shadow the whole time. That adds up. And since he's a God when he gets angry he isn't just gonna punch a wall. He's gonna terrorize another planet. I would be angry as hell too. I thought loki was clever and smart

I love Loki not not only because he is played by Tom Hiddleston but because he's such a complex, deep villain that we don't see often enough in movies like this. He may have done a lot of bad things, but he was neglected as a child, and the first really evil thing he did was to try and impress his dad. He went bad mostly because he felt second-largest for his whole life. He's such a beautiful character and I love him.

He can shape-shift. There is no other character, besides Loki's mom Frigga, who can shape-shift. And he has impeccable dress sense. He has so much emotion. Tom Hiddleston did a terrific job portraying Loki. Some of the best acting I have ever seen. And it is easier to relate to Loki than most of the other characters. And as Tom Hiddleston said "Every villain is a hero in his own mind."

2 Tony Stark / Iron Man

The Avengers would've been boring without Tony hacking into SHIELD's database and him making wisecracks every chance he got. He's an idiot but he's a genius idiot that everyone owes their life to seeing as he fully expected to die when he intercepted the nuke that was going to blow up Manhattan (and not do any damage to the Tesseract since it was in an impenetrable energy field anyway).

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

Duhhh iron is the best, he created his own power when everyone had some sort of experiment and iron put a lot of effort into every single suit when captain America did nothing ohhh my god I love iron man!

Iron man is the leader because he is genius and he is the first to appoint of being the member of the avengers AND assemble it according to nick fury,.

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.

It is always Hulk he is the strongest and loudest and fastest there is not that Puny God that he had smashed on the ground like a million times Loki is just a stupid Gd!

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

4 Steve Rogers / Captain America

He should be in the top 2 or 3 at least because he is the best and he is the only person from Earth who could lift Mjolnir and his shield is awesome not forgetting his leadership quality.

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.

Hands down, Steve is King Bae. I mean, I love Tom Hiddleston and Chris He sworth loads, but Chris Evans is just about the hottest guy I have ever seen. MBut Steve is just so darn adorable, and chivalrous. He's such angood guy, mand that's why I love him

5 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 ...read 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.

Best Avenger( closely followed by Captain America)

6 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 ...read 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...

The movie was outstanding, but made the Hulk look upstoppable and Thor look mortal. Thor is holding back all the time when he fights and could have crushed Iron Man and defeated the Hulk. The only time in this series where we see Thor go all out, is vs the Destroyer in his movie.

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

Come on Thor after Hawkeye and Black Widow? He was the brother of the villain. He kicked Iron Man and Captain America's ass at the same time. He was awesome!

7 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, ...read more.

Clint is Awesome! Because he defeated the entire Avengers when he was brainwashed by Loki and he did it all using his intellegence and cool spy skills, plus he brought down the entire helicarrier, because he's awesome he;s like Batman in JLA, a normal man who can defeat his entire "Super" teammates just by using his brain, anyone can be him but not anyone can be Ironman because he has his father's fortune and created iron man because he has money also Thor is Norse God and Hulk is a freak also cap was lucky being given the super soldier serum, widow is the same, excebt clint, he's the only one with no superpowers and is still an avenger, plus he Bangs Black Widow so he's the most awesome one.

The best Avenger in the film, followed closely by Mark Ruffalo's excellent portrayal of the Hulk. While he is mind-controlled for most of the film's duration, Jeremy Renner's Hawkeye is a a character just begging to be expanded upon. An excellent marksman and one of S.H.I.E.L.D. 's best agents, he is barely touched upon. In Age of Ultron, a bigger part is a must have.

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!

Why is black widow 6 all she dose is Jackie chain moves but weaker she should be last on the list.

8 Agent Phil Coulson

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

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

He is the real hero, let and without superabilities

Funny guy, risked his life by attacking Loki alone, As he lay dying he still fired of a shot with his cannon gun and made a funny mark after firing it, sad that he died in the first avenger

9 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.

At least fury is on the list

Fury be a bad boy

10 Thanos Thanos is a fictional supervillain appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. The character was created by Jim Starlin and Mike Friedrich. The character first appeared in Iron Man #55 and has been portrayed by actors Damion Poitier and Josh Brolin in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

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.

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!

12 Pepper Potts

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

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

She shouldn't be on the list :D

13 Maria Hill Commander Maria Hill is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. In film, she has been portrayed by the Canadian actress Cobie Smulders.

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

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

14 Jarvis

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

15 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, ...read 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

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

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

THE BEST CHARACTER EVER!
But seriously. Who added this delicious food?

17 Stan Lee Stan Lee (December 28, 1922-November 12, 2018) was a comic-book writer, editor, publisher, media producer, television host, actor and former president and chairman of Marvel Comics. He is best regarded as an influential figure for the comic book industry and general entertainment.

Should be the top! Without him, or his amazing cameos, would we even have the MCU we’ve known and loved?
Exactly, we wouldn’t. R.I.P. Stan Lee! Excelsior!

18 Scarlet Witch

She is amazing! I love her, and her with Vision ; )

19 Vision
20 Baby Groot
21 Quicksilver Quicksilver is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. The character first appeared in the comic book X-Men #4 and was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby.

22 Odin
23 Agent Phil
