Added DiffLines:

* 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.

* CircusEpisode: The origin story of the formation of the team (''Avengers'' #1 by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby) features the ComicBook/IncredibleHulk disguised as a clown and juggling animals for a circus audience. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Svl_4EsjG8A No, really.]]

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.

** Although Onslaught did not kill ''all'' the Avengers, just an important number, the team broke up, and the {{Thunderbolts}} filled the void. The Avengers returned a year later.

* LookMaNoPlane: A 1970s-era comic has the title heroes engaged in a battle against {{Thanos}}' starfleet. Most of the heroes fly around in small, vaguely ''Franchise/StarWars''-ian ships, but Thor flies around smashing apart enemy ships under his own power!

* ThouShaltNotKill: ''Usually'' played straight. However, the Avengers recognize that the rules are different in times of war. And when they say war, they mean actual ''war'', such as {{Thanos}} invading with a massive space fleet, or Kang bringing in his army from the future to conquer the whole planet. Even then, however, they take it very seriously; after defeating Kang, for example, [[ComicBook/MsMarvel Warbird]] requested an official inquiry into ''her own'' actions, to see if they thought she had gone too far at one point. They decided she hadn't, but gave it the full consideration she requested.
