  • Don't complain about lack of options. You've got to pick a few when you do multiple choice. Those are the breaks.
  • Feel free to suggest poll ideas if you're feeling creative. I'd strongly suggest reading the past polls first.
  • This whole thing is wildly inaccurate. Rounding errors, ballot stuffers, dynamic IPs, firewalls. If you're using these numbers to do anything important, you're insane.

  • And Uma Thurman takes an early lead, closely followed by Tony Stark.

    However, it's not surprising that slashdotters would choose a techno-geek over a killer babe. :)

    Where are the Punisher and the Phantom? Also, the God of the Old Testament is a bit of an avenger - "Vengence is mine says the Lord; I will repay."

  • It's the only movie I've seen out of those listed...

      I chose it because of the cover by the Cardigans of Black Sabbaths song "Iron Man."

      • I chose it because of the original "Iron Man" by Black Sabbath... Maybe the Type O Negative Cover as well...

  • Black Widow, how about Black Panther...why isn't he in the film? And it's too bad they couldn't have Ms. Marvel or the Scarlet Witch. Sucks that weird copyright deals can chop up a fictional universe where everything is so connected and some things aren't really divisible like they did.

      Weeeelll ... my guess would be because:

      Thor, Iron Man, Ant Man, Wasp, the Hulk, Captain America, Hawkeye, Quicksilver, Scarlet Witch, the Swordsman, Giant-Man I, Giant-Man II, Hercules, Black Panther, Vision, the Black Knight, Black Widow, Mantis, the Beast, Moondragon, Hellcat, the Two-Gun Kid, Wonder Man, Yellowjacket, Ms. Marvel, Falcon, Tigra, She-Hulk, Captain Marvel II, Dr. Druid, Namor, Starfox, Mockingbird, the Thing, War Machine, Moon Knight, Firebird, Demoliton Man, the Forgotten One, Mr. Fantast

      • would be nigh to impossible to all get in the same movie ... particularly as some of them are the same person.

        If any person can make that happen, it would be Joss.

        They tried doing that with the Justice League Unlimited (or whatever) cartoon a while back. Fuckin' 20 different heroes/villains heroes in every episode. It was dumb.

    Patrick McNee! Sure, Ms. Peel looked good in a cat suit. But the umbrella rules!

  • I'm sorry, but I'm afraid someone cocked the joke vote up. Surely it should have read 'Dame Diana Rigg.'

      No. Those are actresses. It should have read 'Emma Peel'.

  • Tony Stark is a fucking badass engineer, who's not only cool enough to develop his own armor to get himself out of trouble (IN A CAVE - WITH A BUNCH OF SCRAPS!), but is also rich as hell, loved by all and down with the ladies. What aspiring engineer wouldn't want to be Tony Stark?

  • You forgot the best Avengers. John Steed and Emma Peel!!!!
    • Emma Peel = Uma Thurman

        Emma Peel = Uma Thurman

        You're delusional. Next, you'll be saying there were two sequels to The Matrix, three prequels to Star Wars, a live action Thunderbirds movie, a great remake of The Day the Earth Stood Still and a second season of the original Battlestar Galactica.

      • Emma Peel = Uma Thurman

        Uma Thurman wishes this were true, but it is not.

    My first response was "Aww, they didn't list Ant Man!" But, honestly, aren't there literally hundreds of characters that have been part of the Avengers. Of course favorites got left out.

    Just be glad Squirrel Girl isn't on the list or you'd be seeing negative numbers for the other choices.
    • My first response was "Aww, they didn't list Ant Man!"

      He's there--right under Hulk. You just have to do a bit of pixel hunting to vote for him...

      Would people want to watch Ant Man superhero? OK, I would just for the ants as an ant geek.

    I reckon that John Steed (Ralph Fiennes) is actually my favourite Avenger but Uma Thurman is close enough. What can I say, I'm a sucker for a dangerous bowler hat.

  • ...or St. IGNUtius as he calls himself.

  • Where's Ant Man? Or better yet "Aunt Man" (that was an awkward Thanksgiving).
  • Unfortunately Tobey McGuire wasn't probably the best cast to portray Stan Lee's Spiderman.
    Just forget the movie(s) and Spiderman definitely deserves an <option> in the poll...

    Grumman TBF
    Grumman A-12

    • Well, the TBF was nice. The A-12 was a boondoggle that cost a couple of billion before it was cancelled; none were ever made. It was also *not* the "Grumman A-12"; Grumman in fact competed for the contract but failed when they didn't submit a final bid at the end of the competition; McDonnell Douglas and General Dynamics were the contractors.

    first "Avenger" I had a bit of a crush on: Diana Rigg as Emma Peel

    hottest drawn image from the Marvel Avengers: Black Widow (I DO love a redhead).

    character of the set that I'd most rather have as an SO: Wasp (physically attractive, rich, and, man, what an attitude, 'specially in the current animated series; too bad she's got a thing for Pym).

  • 'nuff said.

    Actually I was reading the comic books a few years before ABC started airing the British television show, and initially tuned in because of the name.

    Any disappointment I might have had that the show had nothing to do with the Marvel comics was quickly forgotten.

      I might have been preadolescent, but I kept a TV Guide with Diana Rigg on the cover for years. She was wearing one of her trademark catsuits, of course.

  • by Rary (566291)

    But B.J. and Trapper are pretty awesome, too.

  • When I was little I always wanted to be the hulk. Not because he was big or green but because he was really really strong. It probably didn't help that I grew up watching reruns of The Incredible Hulk [wikipedia.org] and saw a real person playing the Hulk when I was little.
  • How about Billy the Cat, and modern-anti-sexist side-kick Katie?
    General Jumbo?

    tsk

  • As was noted in The Last Avengers Story; superheroes have morals, but supervillains have a work ethic. The only exception in the Marvel universe is Captain America. When the shits hits the fan, you can't afford narcissism or alcoholism or any of the other flaws present in the rest of the Avengers.

    In a real crisis, you need clarity, leadership, and a plan. And that's what Steve Rogers brought to the table, every time. No one catches the Cap'n with his pants down.

    No complaints about missing options but I simply must inject a favorite - Dr. Strange. Who else gets to hang out at the sanctum sanctorum!

    Wait, I know where your dirty minds are going... :-p

  • I liked the new Ultimate Thor because he is a bit wacky... He is like a cross between a surfer dude and a Greenpeace hippy, who thinks he is a god...

    The icing on the cake is all the rest of the Avengers just think he is delusional... Ya right there buddy, "god of thunder" and all...

  • I still have to scrub the image of Sean Connery in a teddy bear suit out of my brain.

    Joanna Lumley of course

    But I guess "The New Avengers" probably never played on US TV

    (It was made in the 70's with Patrick Macnee reprising his role as John Steed, with a couple of younger sidekicks

    But Diana Rigg was hot in her day, , I wasn't really impressed with Linda Thorson, but Honor Blackman was OK
