So Marvel picked the 50 Greatest Avengers of All Time (and I helped) (and I wrote entries too!). Before we get into that though, let us honor those that did not achieve immortal status (and the CBR Forum posters who were oh-so-disappointed in the choices we've all made).
And now, I give you a single-act play in pictures.
Open on the Also-Ran Avengers Clubhouse
In rushes Triathlon, right past the exiting Two-Gun Kid.
Gilgamesh giggles endlessly to himself.
Gilgamesh busts into a hearty laugh once again.
Peels of laughter.
Groans throughout the room as Gilgamesh literally collapses in a fit of guffaws.
But that wasn't all from me for Marvel.com last week. I also worked with The Blue Marvel in the Psych Ward to develop his teamwork skills. Blue Marvel, if you don't know, is a Superman-type who lived through the Civil Rights era in the U.S. but ages super slow. He's strong, fast, can fly, and has a giant smarts. He's now a headline player within the Mighty Avengers. You're going to want to check out that book and the Psych Ward I wrote. It'll be well-worth your time.
And yes, he also should've made the top 50 but he wasn't an official Avenger yet so...no dice.
