Marvel’s premiere super-team The Avengers have had more than a hundred members since they first assembled in Stan Lee and Jack Kirby‘s Avengers #1 in 1963. The initial roster of Iron Man, Thor, Hulk, Ant-Man and Wasp has expanded over the decades to include multiple mutants, monsters, gods, aliens, super soldiers, and robots — and the occasional extra Ant-Man, or Iron Man, or Hulk.

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.

We’ve created voting groups that mix up different eras of Avengers membership. Group E, by random chance, is dominated by Avengers ladies, including Mockingbird, Firestar, and the under-appreciated Moondragon --- but the group may actually end up being dominated by two Marvel big guns, Hulk and Daredevil. Good thing you can vote tactically, as the two or three most popular Avengers will go through from each group!
