* DynamicAkimbo: Not used as much their counterparts, the Comicbook/JusticeLeague, but usually, TheBigGuy on the team (Thor, Hercules, Wonder Man, etc.) will take this in contrast to the smaller and less imposing teammates. Cap also does it often, as the leader and most iconic of the group.

** The Human Torch is the ''only'' member of the Fantastic Four never to have been a member of the Avengers (his namesake was a member on the West Coast team). Mr. Fantastic and the Invisible Woman even served together.

* TheAce: ComicBook/{{Hawkeye}} was this during the early run of West Coast Avengers. In a scene in which he's fighting to keep the Quinjet he's piloting from crashing, the narrator comments that many Avengers get praise for doing one thing well, but not Hawkeye—because he does MANY things well.

The Franchise/MarvelUniverse's all-star super-hero team, [[AlternateCompanyEquivalent equivalent]] to Franchise/TheDCU's Franchise/JusticeLeagueOfAmerica... except with more B-List heroes originally and a name that is based firmly on the concept of RuleOfCool (literally, Wasp picked the name because it sounded cool; some adaptations provide better explanations, though). The team debuted in The Avengers #1 in 1963. The classic lineup is ComicBook/CaptainAmerica, ComicBook/IronMan, ComicBook/AntMan, TheWasp, [[ComicBook/TheMightyThor Thor]], and [[ComicBook/IncredibleHulk The Hulk]]. The team also within the first few issues gained the series trademark of [[RevolvingDoorBand shifting lineups]], with the Hulk leaving the group with issue two, and Captain America not actually joining until issue 4, and with the major change of all the originals save Captain America being replaced by issue 16. Over the years, half of the Franchise/MarvelUniverse has been a member (to the point that every member of the ComicBook/FantasticFour has been a member at some point), with new members being recruited and old members coming back or leaving [[RotatingArcs as story dictates]]. Other long-serving members include ComicBook/{{Hawkeye}}, the ComicBook/ScarletWitch, ComicBook/{{Quicksilver}}, ComicBook/TheVision, [[Comicbook/TheIncredibleHercules Hercules]], ComicBook/SheHulk, ComicBook/WonderMan, CaptainMarvel, [[ComicBook/XMen the Beast]], ComicBook/BlackPanther, Comicbook/BlackWidow, and many many more.

* RobotClown: The very first issue of the very first series offers an extremely weird example of this trope, with ComicBook/TheHulk disguising himself as a robot in clown makeup.
