avengers-group-a

With Avengers: Age of Ultron just around the corner, interest in these heroes has never been greater, so we've decided to pit all the official comic book Avengers against each other in a battle for your affections. Who is the greatest, best, favorite Avenger of all time? Only you can decide.

For the first round, we've created voting groups that mix up different eras of Avengers membership. Group A consists of Iron Man, Crystal, Manifold, Sue Storm, Vision, Sentry, Spectrum, and perhaps the most obscure and tragic Avenger of all time, Flux. The two or three most popular Avengers will go through from each group, so you're encouraged to vote tactically, because, yeah, Iron Man is probably going to win this group.
