Comics Alliance Rates The Avengers Hunks [Love & Sex Week]
The 1989 Avengers West Coast Annual featured an unusual short story by Mark Waid and then-newcomer Amanda Conner called "Rate The Hunks," in which Wasp and She-Hulk offered their expert assessment on the sex appeal of their male Avengers colleagues. Almost thirty years later, we've assembled our own experts to repeat the exercise, with an updated twist.
The Avengers are a lot more famous today than they were in the late '80s, and their best known public faces are the movie stars that portray them on the big screen. Our attachment to those actors sometimes informs our views of their comic book counterparts, so in order to address that, we're rating the comics and movie versions of Marvel's celebrated hunks side-by-side.
Our panel of Elle Collins, Zina H., Emma Lawson, Kieran Shiach, and Andrew Wheeler will rate each of the comics and movie versions of the MCU Avengers on a scale from one to five, with a combined score out of 10 for each character. We've also thrown in a couple of leading men who we expect to see alongside the Avengers in the upcoming Infinity War movie; Star-Lord and Doctor Strange. (Little baby Spider-Man can wait a couple of years if he wants to join the ranking.)
Check out our highly authoritative assessment of the Avengers hunks below, and let us know who you think deserves to come out on top.
