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 G features Captain America again, but a different one. How will Bucky fare against the last of our original movie Avengers, Hawkeye, and a guy who might be a future movie Avenger, Spider-Man? And do Silverclaw and Sunfire stand a chance in this sort of company? The top two or three Avengers will go through to the next round, so vote tactically!
Q: Who is the best wrestler in Marvel or DC? -- @Mike_Zeidler
A: I'll be honest with you, folks: Over the past week, I have pretty much done nothing but watch the new WWE Network for five straight days, so it was a foregone conclusion that this week's column was going to be about pro wrestling.

And now the dynamic of the show has changed. With nowhere else to send him, the Hulks have brought a defeated Leader to be a prisoner in their home, which will make for a very interesting dynamic going forward. We spoke to veteran animation writer Henry Gilroy and supervising producer Cort Lane about their favorite moments in the series so far, what to expect in the second half, and how having the Leader in the Hulk base is kind of like dropping Hannibal Lecter in the middle of a frat house.
