I could have gone really overboard with the options, but I held myself back.

Simon Pegg is apparently trying to get an Ant-Man movie off the ground, but that's been going for a long time... who knows what's going to happen there.

Difficult choice, but I went with my gut, which was Iron Man. Like him best as child.

Thor is too elitist.

Hulk is too stupid.

Captain A (apologies the Heck) really just has the shield and fights Nazi's . It's like, WTF, get some more armor and get some real bad guys you dope.

Rest of them I don't know too well, but they are on the Marvel poster I have in my computer room.

Captain America isn't big in Australia. People have heard of him of course, but was never a comic book kids actually read out there. So they limit their market a bit just with the name. Although the movie did well, and I really liked it. I hope the Red Skull comes back.

Good choice on Iron Man. He's pretty kick ass, I agree. The whole idea of this genius millionaire weapon designer just giving himself the ultimate weapon, it's pretty cool. The movies have been enjoyable so far.

Iron Man is something we could all be. We put on a suit and BOOM, WE ROCK.

Only close thing is Batman, but his suit gives him no powers, it just stops bullets. He has Bat winches and bat gas and bat crap he throws, but Joe Sixpack in the bat suit is still just like that poor fat dude that tried it in the second Batman movie. Joker killed his sorry butt on t.v. if I recall.

However, any of us thrown on the Iron Man suit, and like War Machine, we can hang whoop some serious butt.

Yeah, plus you can make things go boom! Awesome.

I actually love Batman. The darker stories are the best. Basically Burton and Nolan movies are the best, but also the Frank Miller comics. Good stuff.

Something about Adam West's Batman just doesn't have the same impact. Though it's good for some chuckles.

I would love a good decent Superman movie. Reboot the whole darn thing, get rid of the newspaper crap, make him the most awesome crime fighting badass of all time.

Show him roll up on mobsters and throw them into the sun.

Show him take some lawyers and jail them in the fortress of solitude.

Show him go out with Lana Lane, then dump her for Lois.

Give him a cool suit and have him crack the moon in half just for kicks.

So no emo, creepily stalking Lois Superman for you?

I actually thought Brandon Routh was a brilliant Superman, but Superman Returns was just so poorly written there was no saving it. It's okay to watch, if you don't think about it too much.

Man of Steel may be good. I'm afraid they're going to go the Dark Knight route though, and make it 'darker' - that's not really Superman.

They need more of his more interesting enemies in the movies too. Just to clarify: Lex Luther is boring as shit. He can be interesting, sure, but in the movies all he does is steal land.

I would make a new villain, just do one from my own head. Forget all the comics and crap. I would think of someone it would be cool for him to fight.

Marvel has a larger universe of villains to choose from. DC needs to start thinking inside the box. INSIDE THE BOX I said.

I get what you're saying, yeah. Marvel's new age of comics, while they borrowed from DC in some aspects, they got how to create a proper mythology behind characters and how to great - let's face it - AWESOME villains. I honestly can't think of any decent DC villains, outside of Batman. And even then, Batman villains are still being created Onomatopoeia and Harley Quinn are very recent Batman villains (considering the book's 70 years old or whatever).

Superman though, his villains... have the potential to be good, but they tend to suck. I mean it is hard to make a real obstacle for him when his only weakness is a green rock. That kind of gets old...

They need to think of beings that are weak, but have mastery of the universe and can make dimensional doors, spells, transports, etc.

Really, just a science oriented Warlock. Screw the green rocks. Let Superman be Superman with no equal, but they throw his butt 10 light years away and he has to figure out what the fire just happened?

I picked The Scarlet Witch. I never read the Avengers comics, and I still haven't seen the movie because I mean to watch the movies leading up to it first. Only made it so far as the first Iron Man.

But in one of my favorite comic books, House of M, which is just pure gold, Scarlet Witch is a prominent character with some really sweet reality-altering powers to go with mental instability. I thought that made for some gripping entertainment. The comic starts after she went crazy and used her powers on her fellow Avengers, killing some of them.

You don't need to watch the earlier movies to understand the Avengers movie. As long as you know who everybody is (n**** please), then you'll be right. There's a thing or two in the earlier movies that kind of connect to the movie, but there's nothing that isn't explained.

It was pretty amazing.

I mean amazing, but get ready for a kind of slow beginning and a lull around the middle. Otherwise: amazing!

I haven't read House of M Sad They should make a movie on it so fans can complain and I can say it's awesome.

I think I voted for Thor. Thor is the most powerful hero in the Marvel Universe - arguably the most powerful being when he had the Odinforce.

Captain America's never been my thing, I've gone off Ironman, I never liked the Hulk, Hawkeye, Black Widow, Ant Man Wasp, Black Panther and Ms Marvel I've never really cared for, and Quick Silver I only really know from X-Men.

That said, I've never really cared for the Avengers as a whole. I've always been more of an X-men fan.

When I do get around to watching The Avengers I expect to love it. I have yet to find a Joss Whedon movie/show/comic that I haven't enjoyed. Even the Buffy movie with Luke Perry, and season seven of Buffy had their merits. Though season four of Angel... Man, that was bad. Even worse because it was blocked in on either side by the awesomeness of seasons three and five.

Most of the Avengers characters that I know, I only know because of their interactions with the X-Men. I'm with White Tiger, I'm a big X-Men fan when it comes to the Marvel universe.

Have to go with Cap. He's the boss. Has been for years.

Growing up I really liked Hank Pym, aka Ant-Man, Giant-Man, Goliath, and Yellowjacket. Dude was booted from the Avengers for getting sauced and slapping around The Wasp. Dick.

Iron Man was cool but seemed Superman-ish in the sense he could do everything. Almost.

The Avengers I don't like are the dudes who come from other teams, like the FF or X-Men.

Living Lightning and Machine Man might be the worst.

-HECK!
