Click here to see him as Tony Stark 
Voiced by: Adrian Pasdar (Seasons 1-3), Mick Wingert (Season 4-present)

A billionaire industrialist and a brilliant inventor in his own right, Tony Stark is the team leader. Following an incident that left him with a piece of shrapnel in his chest, Tony designed an electromagnetic harness to keep himself alive, and eventually, a suit of armor that could be powered by it.


  • Aesop Amnesia: No matter how many times Tony learns that relying solely on technology will not work, he's right back to being a smug jerk who thinks his tech is infallible the very next episode. Not even the war with the Cabal did anything, as he's still bad about this well into the second season. In fact, him not learning from his mistakes is what caused Captain America, Black Widow and Falcon to quit the Avengers.

    Eventually averted after the Avengers Disassemble arc where the following episodes show him actively addressing issues in the team's tech, which he designs himself, to improve it and even making efforts to improve team dynamics.
  • Attack! Attack! Attack!: His plan to attack the HYDRA base? Hit everything hard. Later, he keeps pounding on the Super-Adaptoid while Cap's busy trying to tell him that it's not gonna work.
  • Badass Bookworm: Tony Stark is a prime example of this concept.
  • Badass in Distress: Ends Season 3 trapped in an alternate dimension where technology doesn't work, and spends Season 4 there and unable to contact the others.
  • Beam Spam: Tony's primary method of attack is blasting barrages of energy blasts from his gauntlet. He also has a super-charged version he can deploy from his chestpiece.
  • Big Brother Instinct: Not always apparent but this trope is there in spades. He tends to motherhen his teammates by either backseat driving (which is sometimes justified, sometimes not depending on the situation) and checking in on the others during times where he can't be there in the field, which gets lampshaded at one point. The latter is what actually opened up the pilot. He's also shown to be fairly protective of all his teammates to varying extents, and went through a HBSOD when his leadership directly caused Falcon to be severally injured and didn’t snap out of it until said Avenger had a bit of a heart-to-heart with him.
  • Break the Haughty: Several episodes, but most notably in By The Numbers.
  • Broken Pedestal: For Falcon; Tony lost his respect because Tony destroyed everything when he couldn't see past his own pride, which causes Falcon to join Captain America's team instead.
  • Brought Down to Badass: in Exodus (part 1 of the Season finale) Tony brings all of his armors to assist the Avengers, and they all get destroyed in the process, leaving Tony without any armor. The Final Showdown (part 2) has him find a replacement in the entire Avengers Tower, and finally, an alliance with MODOK sees Tony getting back the armor Skull stole from him. When his armor fritzed out in Small Time Heroes, he had to resort to hand-to-hand combat.
  • ...But He Sounds Handsome: Tony can't resist giving himself a pat on the back or two while disguised as the Grim Reaper and trying to infiltrate the Cabal. Comes back to bite him, though, as it makes MODOK and Skull suspicious.
  • Did You Just Scam Cthulhu?: Galactus made him his herald. Tony found him a planet to eat alright.
  • Divide and Conquer: He plays on MODOK's resentment and Attuma's lust for power to have them start a brawl with Red Skull at one point.
  • Disability Superpower: It's hard to remember sometimes but that arc reactor in his chest is a glorified pacemaker. Remove the arc reactor and Tony's heart will very quickly give out. MODOK demonstrates this fact early on.
  • Dressing as the Enemy: Disguises himself as the Grim Reaper to infiltrate the Cabal.
  • Dull Surprise: Adrian Pasdar really sounds like he's not into it a majority of the series.
  • The Engineer: To quote Cap:
    Tony's a builder. He doesn't adapt to the situation, he adapts the situation to suit him.
  • Fatal Flaw: Pride. Shown in full force with his dealings with Justin Hammer. Unfortunately for the team, Red Skull has noticed this flaw.
  • Fiction 500: He runs a Mega-Corp, Stark Industries, and can still redirect some money into the Avengers.
  • Gadgeteer Genius: It's Tony Stark, what really needs to be said? He's one of the smartest men on the planet.
  • Heroic BSoD: First in By The Numbers, when his haughty dependence on his suit's probability programs ultimately lead to Skull getting his hands on The Tesseract. Then in Exodus, he gets another one when he nearly gets Falcon killed, resigning leadership to Cap.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: With the help of Dr. Strange, Tony gets sent to a special dimension to isolate Ultron, but at a cost; Tony is trapped in a state of dimensional limbo, with special magic used to keep Tony alive while his arc reactor containing Ultron has been shut down, which means Tony cannot leave.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Cap. They’re co-leaders of the Avengers and trust each other, often referring to the other for decisions, most especially later on.
  • Honest Corporate Executive: Tony is rich because of his corporation, but refuses to let the pursuit of wealth conflict with his principles.
  • If My Calculations Are Correct: Tony puts far too much faith in his probability programs, despite Cap's warnings that you can't accurately predict the human element. Tony replies the human element is insignificant as a far as his calculations are concerned. When going up against a strategist of the Red Skull's caliber, this proves to be his undoing.
  • It Only Works Once: Tony has a tendency to learn from his mistakes. For example, when MODOK ripped his armor apart with his mind in the first episode Tony installed psychic inhibitors afterwards to prevent a repeat of said incident. On the other hand, see Aesop Amnesia.
  • The Leader: He's in this position instead of Cap, though they sometimes appear to share the role. Takes a 10-Minute Retirement in Exodus after being shaken by almost getting Falcon killed, handing the wheel to Cap.
  • Magic Versus Science: Tony's smarter than the average Flat-Earth Atheist, acknowledging that Thor and other magical beings, Asgardians in particular, are doing something beyond his understanding. Though he refers to it as science he hasn't figured out yet.
  • Macross Missile Massacre: His suit has a quite a few missile launchers in it.
  • Millionaire Playboy: He's incredibly rich, and loves to have fun. He outright refers to himself as such.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: Nice going with those Space Phantoms there, Tony.
  • Phlebotinum Dependence: He needs that arc-reactor in his chest to survive and is almost killed when MODOK rips it out.
  • Pass the Popcorn: Tony's reaction to Cap trying out his new repulsor boots; thirty million people on Youtube in the episode agree with him.
  • Powered Armor: His claim to fame.
  • Reset Button Suicide Mission: In one episode, the Squadron Supreme uses the reality gem to create a reality where they're heroes and the Avengers are bad guys. Being aware of this by the time it seems he'll have to get himself killed to save the day, Iron Man does so under the expressed belief he'll be restored once the reality is restored. He's proven right.
  • Science Hero: In the end, it's his science that does Thanos in, as he reprograms Arsenal to contain all 5 Infinity Stones.
  • Spanner in the Works: He's brought to Battleworld accidentally along with his No Tech dimension, and proceeds to go around finding information on how to keep the Beyonder from finding out what the Avengers are up to once he meets up with them.
  • Smug Super: Tony has problems with his ego from time to time. This is because he knows he is one of the world's best inventors and never let's anyone forget that fact.
  • Technology Porn: Tony loves his tech, but tends to become too dependent on it, a fact that Captain America lampshades time and time again.
  • Training the Peaceful Villagers: He convinces the peaceful natives of the Savage Land to help him deal with Justin Hammer's mining operation.
  • Troll: Hacks the computer systems in Doom's fortress, seizes control of his defenses....and cancels his movie subscriptions.
    • He also created a nasty piece of malware that deliberately mocks Doom before shutting down his entire base.
  • Walking Armory: An original poster-boy of the trope.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Tony had no qualms against using his repulsors on a teenage supervillain; although he kept the blast at minimum.
  • Whole Costume Reference: In "Dark Avengers", Tony undergoes a Palette Swap that makes the red in his armor black, evoking the Marvel Now armor.

     Captain America 

Captain Steven "Steve" Rogers / Captain America

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/captain_america_2014_6869.png

A sickly young man from Brooklyn turned into a perfect soldier by a government project during World War II. He ended up frozen in ice and awoken in the modern era during a battle with the Red Skull. His weapon of choice is a Vibranium shield that can absorb all energy directed at it, making it ideal as both protection and as a projectile (as it does not lose energy when it makes contact with another surface when thrown).


  • A Father to His Men: His unwillingness to take risks is what eventually breaks up the team.
  • The Ageless: Zigzagged. The super soldier serum has helped him defy Father Time, but as the Time Stone has shown, time will catch up to him eventually, albeit decades more than a normal human.
  • Badass Boast: Cap gets an excellent one on behalf of the team in Thanos Triumphant.
    When Avengers stand, tyrants fall!
  • Badass in Distress: Gets kidnapped and held hostage more than any other member of the team. First episode, Cap is apparently disintegrated, but instead kidnapped and body swapped by the Red Skull. Later, he in Planet Doom he is held as a Sealed Good in a Can by Doctor Doom And even after his great genius moment in Bring On the Bad Guys, he is defeated and held prisoner and used as a hostage against Tony by Red Skull and in the Ambassador he is briefly captured by Doctor Doom when Doom's end game comes to light. In season two, he ends up injured and unconscious trying to help kid Tony and has trouble grappling with the Red Skull.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: He's one of the nicest guys in the world, but God help you if you decide to hurt his teammates.
    • Also, don't let that boy scout act display fool you. It is genuine but underneath it he has a pretty devious mind; something Dr. Doom found out the hard way.
  • Bodyguarding a Badass: He ends up as Dr. Doom's personal bodyguard during his attempted speech at the United Nations. Justified in that Doom went without his weapons in a diplomatic move.
  • Broken Pedestal: To Spider-Man. Spider-Man always looked up to him, and Spider-Man was really hurt at the fact that Captain America quit the Avengers, which goes against everything Spider-Man learned from him.
  • The Cape: He doesn't wear a cape, but otherwise he fits the archetype perfectly, being the most heroic, noble and compassionate member of the team.
  • The Captain: Duh. There's a reason it's in his name, and he'a an Army Captain.
  • Captain Patriotic: The Trope Codifier.
  • Comic-Book Fantasy Casting: Like in Ultimate Spider-Man, Roger Craig Smith is channeling Chris Evans.
  • Disney Death:
    • In the pilot.
    • In "Descent of the Shadow", he sacrifices himself to stop the Wakandan crown from exploding. As a result, Black Panther is blamed for his death by the other Avengers. However, in "Bashenga", he is revealed to have been merely absorbed by the crown, and is brought back to the real world by Black Panther.
  • Dressing as the Enemy: He makes a pretty good imitation of Crossbones.
  • Empowered Badass Normal: No actual super powers aside from his superhuman physique, and he started out as a scrawny kid before becoming a Super Soldier.
  • Foil: To Tony.
  • Genius Bruiser: Steve has intelligence to complement his physical ability, which is on full display in "Super-Adaptoid".
  • Good Is Old-Fashioned: But not obsolete as shown in "Super-Adaptoid".
  • Good Old Ways: Cap prefers to do things "old-school", and never loses his fondness for the down-to-earth, tech-second approaches from his original generation.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: Blond haired and blue eyed, he is also an old-fashioned good guy.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: At the end of "Descent of the Shadow", when the unstable Wakanda crown is about to explode, Cap uses his shield to cover the crown...but ends up getting vaporized.
  • Incorruptible Pure Pureness: Best shown in "The Dark Avengers", wherein reality has been altered and he'd been turned into a super-villain. From the get-go he can tell something's not right, and unlike the rest of the Avengers, never actually does anything that could be considered villainous. He also sees through Thanos' use of the Reality Stone just as easily.
  • The Infiltration: He is the one who came up with the plan of him and Stark infiltrating the Cabal by disguising themselves as Crossbones and Grim Reaper.
  • Killed Off for Real: He ends up dying in "Descent of the Shadow" when trying to stop the unstable Wakanda crown from destroying the city. Subverted when it's revealed in "Bashenga" that he was actually absorbed by the crown and is still alive.
  • The Lancer: Could be seen as this to Iron Man/Tony Stark, until he decides to quit.
  • The Leader: He used to the leader of the Avengers until he passed it on to Stark. He took over as leader of the team in the end of Season 1 when Tony suffered a Heroic BSoD. Finally, he becomes leader of his own team when he quit the Avengers and took Falcon, Hulk, and Black Widow with him. After Tony made a Heroic Sacrifice in the Season 3 finale, Cap is back to being leader now.
  • Luckily, My Shield Will Protect Me: Averted in the first episode.
  • Never Found the Body: In "Descent of the Shadow", he uses his shield to cover the Wakanda crown when it is about to explode. Once it does, it ends up vaporizing him.
  • Never Tell Me the Odds!: He tends to view Tony's probability and strategy programs as fairly useless; preferring instead to rely on gut-instinct, training and experience.
  • Nice Guy: He's a gentle and caring man who always does the right thing.
  • The Not-Love Interest: To Tony. His faked death in the first episode was the catalyst that had the Avengers get back together again, and acts as a stabilizing influence on Tony for the rest of the series.
  • Sealed Good in a Can: After he sacrifices himself to stop the Crown (aka Bashenga's Core) from exploding in "Descent of the Shadow", he is revealed to have been merely absorbed by the object in "Bashenga", and is brought back to the real world by T'Challa.
  • Shield Bash: He uses his shield as much as a melee weapon as a source of protection.
  • Shut Up, Hannibal!: Stops Hyperion's rant by throwing his shield in his face.
  • Start My Own: Captain America couldn't agree with Tony Stark's selfish attitude, quits and takes Black Widow, Hulk, and Falcon with him and they all join S.H.I.E.L.D. as their own group. However, Nick Fury re-brands Cap's S.H.I.E.L.D. team as Avengers, even though Iron Man's team have claim to the name.
  • The Strategist: Able to instantaneously formulate ironclad attack patterns, formations and strategies based on split second assessment of the situation compared to the abilities of the Avengers. In later eps, one starts to wonder why Tony, though brilliant, is still the leader of the Avengers when it's clear he's used to handling a solo gig and relying on algorithms to predict superhero-villain battles.
    • To further highlight it, Cap tends to focus on the Big Picture while Iron Man focuses on the details. As a result, Cap knew they were in trouble in "By The Numbers" because the Hulk was injured and the Cabal was dividing them up while Iron Man kept insisting every thing was alright because his detail oriented probability program said so.
    • Didn't See That Coming: His greatest (And perhaps only) flaw as a strategist, is that he's used to relatively mundane scenarios. Two teams fighting is one thing, utilization of advanced tech and/or magic can often be his blindspot. That's where Tony's and Thor's aid comes in handy.
  • Super Soldier: Given the super soldier serum during World War II, which is how he gets his abilities.
  • Team Dad: Is the Only Sane Man of the team, Widow excepted, and often has a paternal attitude to his teammates.
  • Team Mom: First person to suggest training, hovers over the half-Vampire Black Widow, easily offers words of praise to Sam Wilson, checks on Hulk when he has a case of amnesia and has eaten an alien parasite and to give de-aged kid Tony a healing hug.
  • Undying Loyalty: He shows this to T'Challa in Black Panther's Quest, where he's the only Avenger to not give up on him after the latter jeopardizes a peace treaty between Wakanda and Atlantis.
  • Whole Costume Reference: In "Dark Avengers", he wears the uniform he wore as "The Captain" (and the one Johnny Walker uses as U.S. Agent).

     Hawkeye 

Clint Barton / Hawkeye

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/marvels_avengers-assemble_molecule-kid_2893.jpg
Voiced by: Troy Baker

An elite agent formerly of S.H.I.E.L.D. and ex-partner of the Black Widow. He is an expert archer and seems to enjoy egging on the Hulk.


  • Archer Archetype: His entire superhero identity revolves around his archery skills.
  • Annoying Arrows: Some of his opponents just shrug off his arrows.
  • Aesop Amnesia: The guy will never learn to stop messing around with Hulk's food. Probably because the Hulk will never stop messing around with his food.
  • Badass Biker: He has a real nice hoverbike that he is typically seen riding on.
  • Badass Normal: No super powers to speak of, but he's a highly trained ex-SHIELD agent and a deadly archer.
  • Big Eater: Always going on about food and it's a regular source of conflict between him and Hulk.
  • Brilliant, but Lazy: In "The Kids Are Alright", it's shown that he's very skilled with electronics. He admits to Falcon that he keeps this talent hidden so nobody will ask him to do stuff.
  • Characterization Marches On: When he first appeared in Ultimate Spider-Man, he was serious and calculating if sarcastic and having a sense of humour. However, in this adaptation, he's still sarcastic, but he's portrayed as cocky, impulsive and somewhat immature. This could, perhaps, be explained by the fact that he doesn't feel the need to set an example around the Avengers.
  • Clark Kenting: Most of the Avengers have masks; or in the case of the Hulk are mutated heavily from their normal human features; or in the case of Thor don't actually have a secret identity. Hawkeye just wears a pair of purple shades. In another episode Hawkeye's purple mask from earlier incarnations shows up in a storage room in the basement of Avenger Tower. Clint seems to treat it as an Old Shame, snatching it away from Ms. Marvel hastily and a bit sulkily.
  • Complaining About Rescues They Don't Like: Falcon saves him from becoming a stain on the pavement. He immediately starts complaining about it as soon as his feet are on the ground.
  • Cool Bike: Drives his own custom hover-cycle as his method of getting around, since he's the only member besides Cap who doesn't have Flight or "Super Leaping".
  • Cool Shades: He's got a nice purple set. Savage shows he carries a spare pair on him at all times.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: As revealed in Crime and Circuses, Clint used to be a member of the criminal group called the Circus of Crime. He tries to keep this a secret, but eventually confesses his past to the rest of the Avengers.
  • Deadpan Snarker: He snarks a lot.
  • Didn't Think This Through: Says so word for word when he uses his hoverbike as a kamikaze weapon against a meteorite.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Hawkeye is frequently seen heckling and ticking people off, but there's no doubting the good heart he has deep down.
  • Handicapped Badass:
    • After being temporarily blinded by the Cosmic Skull during the season 1 finale.
    • In Black Panther's Quest, after Princess Zanda overloads his quiver, he tries to throw it away, only for it to explode and scald his hands. In "House of M", he is unable to shoot any arrows due to his injury. Thankfully, Madame Masque is able to heal the burns.
  • Heel Realization: He realizes that sometimes he takes things too far in his dealings with Mojo.
  • Improbable Aiming Skills: many of his shots are objectively impossible.
  • Improbable Use of a Weapon: He's more than capable of using his bow and arrows as close-quarters weapons.
  • My Friends... and Zoidberg: He doesn't get treated like this by the Avengers themselves but chances are if he ends up in space for any amount of time he'll get very little respect from those outside the team or no one will even know who he is. This possibly has something to do with his Memetic Loser status among the MCU fanbase.
  • Mythology Gag: Temporarily became giant in size during "One Small Problem" as a callback to Clint's brief career as one of the Goliaths.
  • Reality Ensues: In "King Breaker, Part 1", he gets his hands burned after trying to dispose of his overloading quiver. The injuries are so bad he is unable to shoot any arrows in "House of M".
  • Sarcastic Devotee: Pretty much to everyone he's on the team with.
  • Ship Tease: Gets a little bit of this with Natasha during "Beneath the Surface".
  • Sleeves Are for Wimps: His default outfit is sleeveless.
  • The Straight and Arrow Path: Like all versions of Hawkeye, he favors the use of bow and arrow.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: In Black Panther's Quest, he becomes hostile towards Black Panther and refuses to want anything to do with him. Justified since Black Pather and Captain America have kept too many secrets from him and the other Avengers.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Hawkeye is in a fight with Hulk. Iron Man and Captain America step in as Reasonable Authority Figures, ready to set them apart and stop the fight. But when they hear that Hawkeye broke one of Hulk's glass figurines, they rolled their eyes and accepted that Hawkeye is simply willing to die.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: He sure likes his pickles.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With the Hulk.
  • Whole Costume Reference: Hawkeye wears his Darker and Edgier costume from The Ultimates 3 in "Planet Doom".

     Thor 

Thor Odinson

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/thor_1265.png

The Norse God of Thunder who believes that by acting as a hero on Earth, he can make more of a difference.


  • An Axe to Grind: As of Black Panther's Quest, he now wields the axe Stormbreaker, which has the same powers as Mjolnir.
  • Badass Baritone: Possessed of a suitably deep voice.
  • Badass Beard: As an old man, he'll have one. He eventually grows one in Black Panther's Quest.
  • Bash Brothers: With the Hulk.
  • Berserk Button:
    • Messing with his cape seems to be an open invitation for an ass-kicking.
    • Insulting his honour/acting dishonorably is also a very good way to earn an enraged Asgardian-sized pummeling.
  • The Big Guy: The tallest of the Avengers right after Hulk.
  • Blood Knight: Thor loves fighting, to the point that when Iron Man sheepishly confesses to having made a suit of "Asgardian-Buster" Armornote  in "Avengers Disassembled", Thor isn't outraged but elated. Rather than being upset that Tony would make such a thing, he asks why Tony didn't mention its existence sooner, because they could have been using it to spar.
  • Boisterous Bruiser: Thor likes a good time; in the first episode, he's excitedly telling Hawkeye about an Asgardian festival he was missing out on. Then there's the time he and the Avengers went to a diner after defeating Hyperion. When we finally meet his dad, Odin, we see were he got it from.
  • Cain and Abel: The Abel to Loki's Cain.
  • Chekhov's Gun: He loses Mjolnir during the first half of "The Final Showdown". It gets back to him during the climax, just in time to stop the Red Skull from killing everyone by knocking him and the Tesseract into a portal.
  • Deadpan Snarker: while he doesn't do it anywhere near as often, he's by far the most deadpan member of the team, making it all the funnier when it does happen.
  • Dumb Jock: In the episode Back to School we learn Thor never graduated school or the Hall of Learning. He did poorly compared to Loki who excelled and was pulled out by Odin to "help" on the battlefield because Odin did not think he could pass the final tests. While he does eventually pass and "graduate" it took a lot of help and Thor still tends to make dumb mistakes that others call him out on.
  • Dumb Muscle: Thor in this show can be surprisingly reckless and dense to the point the Hulk has to point things out to him.
  • Drop the Hammer: He wields his mystical hammer, Mjölnir in battle, and can summon thunder and lightning. Apparently, it's powerful even when shrunk. [[spoiler:It's replaced in Black Panther's Quest with Stormbreaker, which is, of course, an axe.]
  • Elemental Powers: Wind and lightning.
  • Expository Hairstyle Change: In the finale of Black Panther's Quest, his hair is now shorter. Sort of counts as a Mythology Gag to his MCU counterpart.
  • Flying Brick: Though he seems to throw Mjolnir and hold onto its handle, flight is the only way to describe what he does. The Brick part goes without saying.
  • Godzilla Threshold: The Destroyer poses enough of a threat that bringing in Loki is the best idea that Thor can think of.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: Has long blond hair and is an Avenger. He eventually cuts it short in the finale of Black Panther's Quest.
  • Helmets Are Hardly Heroic: As of Black Panther's Quest, Thor has given up wearing his helmet just like his MCU counterpart.
  • Immortal Immaturity: Despite being over a thousand years old Thor is very reckless and is often more concerned with proving himself in battle and having a good time then considering the consequences of his actions. He has at times summoned storms or insisted on engaging the Hulk (Or others) in battle to prove who is stronger despite the damage it causes or the people it puts in danger. Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H. time-traveling episode showed Thor has physically grown up while still being as reckless and immature as he was in the Viking Age.
  • Large Ham: often very loud and very enthusiastic, to go with his Boisterous Bruiser tendencies.
  • Magic Versus Science: Engages in back-and-forth needling with Tony over this.
  • Meddling Parents: Thor's dad, Odin, has a tendency to dictate how his son should live his life, much to Thor's displeasure.
  • Mundane Utility: Lightning powers are also good for making popcorn and bar-b-que in addition to zapping bad guys.
  • Mythology Gag: In the Season 5 finale, his appearance has changed to match his MCU counterpart in Thor: Ragnarok, with his eyepatch, shorter hair, and replacing Mjolnir with his new axe, Stormbreaker.
  • Physical God: He's the god of thunder, so that's given, and is immortal too.
  • Rapid Aging: Briefly under the influence of the Time Stone, when he grows a Badass Beard and informs Thanos that age only makes Asgardians more powerful, before forcing the Time Stone's effects back on Thanos.
  • Set Right What Once Went Wrong: Because he was in Asgard, and therefore in a different dimension, when Doom fired up his time machine in Planet Doom it is up to Thor to restore the timeline to its original state.
  • Shock and Awe: He is the God of Thunder, after all.
  • Stronger with Age: Asguardians as a whole get more powerful when they age. Because of this, Thanos' attempt to use the Time Stone on him backfires spectacularly.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: When aged by the Time Stone, he quite heavily resembles his father, beard and all.
  • Superheroes Wear Capes: the only member of the Avengers to play this straight, which leads to occasional mockery from his teammates. Hyperion's impressed, though, enough that he nicks the cape. Thor takes it back by force.
  • Super Strength: He's strong enough to go toe to toe with the likes of Hyperion, the Hulk and Thanos. He can even hit hard enough to launch the Hulk from the Moon back to Earth and give Hulk amnesia (admittedly, Hulk let him do so, as it was the only means they had of getting help from Earth). When he cuts loose, the side effects of his blows cause fully fledged tidal waves.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With the Hulk.
  • Worf Barrage: Thor will sometimes summon an all-powerful lighting attack meant to atomize the enemy only for it to fail to scratch them. One stand out case is the first battle against the Super-Adaptoid.
  • Worf Effect: Thor is supposed to be around the Hulk's strength, with vast weather powers and Asgard's greatest warrior. Yet he is constantly overpowered by villains and needs saving by the other Avengers. This is generally averted from season 2 onwards, especially in Thanos Triumphant, when Thanos smacks him into the Moon hard enough to leave a crater at least the size of the US in its surface. This only serves to annoy him. The prospect of his counter strike scares Thanos, who it should be noted was wearing the Infinity Gauntlet at the time and had shrugged off blows from the Hulk, enough that he resorts to using Black Widow as a human shield. Furthermore, he's the only one who actually manages to directly turn one of the Infinity Stones against Thanos.
  • Ye Olde Butcherede Englishe: His speech pattern.
  • You Can't Fight Fate: Has this attitude to begin with, but he abandons it later on.

     Hulk 

Hulk

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/524a21f5dbefb_8128.jpg
Voiced by: Fred Tatasciore, Jesee Burch (Bruce Banner, Season 3), Kevin Shinick (Bruce Banner, Season 4)

He's big, green and likes to punch things. What more needs to be said? Formerly Bruce Banner, a leading scientist in the field of gamma radiation, he developed an alternate personality that manifested as the rampaging monster known as The Hulk after being mutated by said radiation.


  • Attack! Attack! Attack!: His battle plans consist of punch everything hard.
  • Badass Baritone: The deepest voiced Avenger.
  • Berserk Button:
    • Don't mess with the Zoo (the in-series name for his glass figurine collection).
    • Or take his peanut butter, or cereal, or guacamole, or any of his food in general. Hulk almost lost it when Falcon stole his sandwich, but Falcon lucked out because the sandwich landed on Hulk's hands,
    • Trying to prank him is a bad idea too.
    • Seriously hurting Thor really pisses him off as well.
  • Big Eater: He eats a lot of food, which is justified in Hulked Out Heroes as being a side-effect of his mutation; a Hulk's body is a living bio-nuclear reactor, so it needs a lot of fuel to work.
  • The Big Guy: Shares this role with Thor, and they often fight over the position.
  • Blood Knight: He's one of the most eager members of the team to fight, and happiest when he is fighting.
  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: He does not appear in Black Panther's Quest. His absence goes unnoticed, nor do his teammates even mention him.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: When Hulk is in a good mood, that is.
  • Comedic Sociopathy: with Hawkeye usually on the receiving end.
  • Deadpan Snarker: has a surprisingly dry wit for a green rage monster.
  • Destructive Savior: He arguably does more damage then the villains half the time. Ironically, when he left the Avengers with Cap, Black Widow, and Falcon, the Avengers end up doing even more damage without him.
  • Easy Amnesia: He ends up suffering a bout of this thanks to Thor and his hammer.
  • Genius Bruiser: Though he doesn't often show it, he retains Banner's intelligence. He emphasizes that he's only angry, not stupid.
    • When Widow's in his body, he tells her that it's best to break through doors leading with the shoulder, not the head.
  • Guttural Growler: As is common to film and animated depictions, he speaks in a very deep, guttural, growling tone of voice.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: Zigzagged; he does get angry very easily (as you'd expect of The Hulk), but he normally doesn't get physical unless he's really steamed or he's supposed to be fighting the guy ticking him off anyway.
  • Heel Realization: He does realize, somewhat, that he isn't the best roommate in the world in Hulked Out Heroes.
    Hulk (as Hulk!Thor runs off all pouty): So that's what it's like to live with me. (Beat) I'd hate living with me.
  • Hidden Depths: His friendship with Glorium, being bowling buddies with The Thing, his glass figurine collection; these are not exactly things you would typically associate with a big gamma radiation-powered Blood Knight.
  • Hulk Speak: Averted, much like in Earth's Mightiest Heroes.
    • However, the more pissed off he gets, the more likely you are to hear Hulk Speak, rage apparently eroding his intelligence. (This, by the way, is when you want to run for your life.)
    • We also get samples of this in Hulked Out Heroes when the Avengers are exposed to a virus that makes them like the Hulk.
  • I Love Nuclear Power: How he became what he is in the first place.
  • In a Single Bound: He shows he can jump from the streets of Manhattan to the top of a skyscraper and then through Glorium's portal which is miles up.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Hulk is a huge jerk, make no mistake, but he's deeply loyal to his friends and shows a softer side deep down on many occasions.
  • Manchild: Hulk is one of the least-mature members of the team, which is a subtle reference to his classic depiction as being basically a really angry toddler in a super-powered body.
  • Odd Friendship: With Glorium, a master Asgardian craftsman. He respects his ability to smash, and Hulk likes his glass figurines.
  • One-Man Army: What else would you expect of the Hulk?
  • Power Glows: When he gets really angry and really strong, he starts glowing green.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: You wouldn't expect a guy like him to collect glass figurines, would you?
  • Security Blanket: Hulk loves his glass figurines.
  • Super Strength: The most physically powerful of the Avengers (just about - Thor runs him close) and capable of, when going toe to toe with Hyperion, 'shaking continents'.
  • Status Quo Is God: No matter how many times Hulk becomes Bruce Banner, he'll always revert back to being Hulk.
  • Through His Stomach: Falcon gains his friendship through his mother's cookies, Ant Man does so by bringing a mini-party, and enlarging a slice of cake before he eats it. He even joins Cap's team over the team he better meshes with because Falcon does so.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: He has a thing for peanut butter.
  • Too Spicy for Yog-Sothoth: When Dracula bites him, turning him into a vampire and gaining his abilities. Turns out Gamma Radiation has an effect similar to, if not more deadly, than sunlight.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: By the time the events of Hulk And The Agents Of Smash come around, he has tempered his anger and anti-social behavior considerably. This doesn't really bleed into his current interactions with the Avengers though. Apparently the clashing egos and assumption that he's just Dumb Muscle brings out the worse in him.
    • Hints of his later actions are shown in "Hulked-out Heroes". He's the relatively calm straight man in the latter series because he has the most control over being a Hulk. Having to deal with other, less in-control Hulks brings out his calmer side.
  • Twinkle Smile: He of all people does this in “Hulked Out Heroes.” After defeating the Hulked Thor he hits his chest several times while roaring “Hulk strongest there is!” before turning to Black Widow, claiming her as a witness and saying Thor owes him 5 dollars when he wakes up, and flashing this to her.
  • Unstoppable Rage: When driven to a state of hyper-rage by Attuma, Hulk not only lifted the island of Manhattan, but easily defeated the previously unbeatable Attuma. In Season 2, he overpowered Thanos when Thanos used the Infinity Gauntlet to increase the Hulk's rage.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With Hawkeye, Thor and The Thing.
    • Season 2 emphasizes the friendship between Hulk and Thor more.
  • Whole Costume Reference: In "Dark Avengers", Hulk's grey-skinned appearance references his "Mr. Fixit" persona from the comics.
  • World's Strongest Man: Hulk is constantly the go to guy for strength and when super-enraged lifted the island of Manhattan and easily overpowered Attuma underwater despite Attuma earlier easily overpowering Thor and matching the Hulk blow for blow on the surface. If you want to be technical, Thor is a Physical God not from Earth, so Hulk's claim does hold up.
  • "World of Cardboard" Speech: He gives one in “Hulked Out Heroes” after he invites a Hulked Hawkeye to punch him in the face, and he doesn’t even flinch from it.
    Hulk: Always worry about hurting people. Always hold back. Not now. Now! Hulk Unleashed!

     Black Widow 

Natasha Romanoff / Black Widow

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/black_widow_7681.png
Voiced by: Laura Bailey

An ex-Russian spy, Hawkeye's former partner and an elite operative for S.H.I.E.L.D..


  • Actor Allusion: The episode "Blood Feud", which briefly sees a vampirized Widow, is not the first time Laura Bailey has voiced a vampire
  • Amazonian Beauty: While it’s not to the extent of her male teammates, Widow has a very muscular yet voluptuous body that is highlighted by her Spy Cat Suit.
  • Ascended Extra: She was largely absent for most of the first season. She becomes a regular in the second, appearing in most of the episodes since then until the fourth season.
  • Badass Normal: Superhuman or not, trying to fight her is a bad idea.
  • Bare Your Midriff: Her aquatic costume highlighted her toned stomach.
  • Beauty Is Never Tarnished: She looks very beautiful despite partaking in battles.
  • Break Out Character: She is perhaps the reason why people even watch this show.
  • A Day in the Limelight: "Widow's Run" revolves around her attempts to hide the Infinity Stones from an entire universe full of people wanting to get them.
  • Deadpan Snarker: One of the most prolific on the team.
  • Determinator: Refuse to give in to the Infinity Stones' corruption, only using the stones power to help her teammates fight against Dormammu.
  • Flying Car: She owns one.
  • Form-Fitting Wardrobe: She wears a Spy Cat Suit that is made out of leather and highlights her well-muscled body in addition to being very tight fitting.
  • Huge Guy, Tiny Girl: She's in platonic examples of this with Thor and Hulk, as they're very close friends and confidantes. Hulk in particular is very kind to her, a far cry from his Vitriolic Best Buds shtick with Thor and Clint. She outright trusts Thor to kill her if she's overcome by the Infinity Stones.
  • Male Gaze: Widow tends to get subjected to these, mainly through camera shots that present her nicely toned body, legs, crotch, and firm buttocks.
  • Most Common Super Power: She has very buxom breasts.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Widow is made for this trope. She is a very beautiful, Russian woman who wears a very form-fitting Spy Cat Suit that highlights her very muscular yet voluptuous body, buxom breasts, toned broad shoulders toned stomach, long muscular yet shapely legs, and toned firm buttocks.
    • In Beneath the Surface, Widow (along with Hawkeye) wore a very form-fitting aquatic version of her costume that allows for her to breathe underwater. Just like her 2nd season costume, the suit still presents her muscular yet voluptuous body.
    • When wounded, Widow has a tendency to fall down in such a way that keeps her butt facing the camera.
  • Mother Russia Makes You Strong: While it can be assumed that she's Russian (and she can clearly speak the language), unlike her counterpart in Earth's Mightiest Heroes, she doesn't have the accent and doesn't make any reference to her past. It's entirely possible, however, that considering the vague link between the two shows that she might simply have ditched it.
  • Offhand Backhand: Casually backhands a mook trying to get the drop on her while chewing Tony out.
  • Out of Focus: Of all the Avengers she has had the smallest role, and aside from a few spotlight episodes, she's been a minor character with little attempt to flesh out her character. Though an attempt to hand-wave it has been made by saying she works with SHIELD a lot, she's so inessential to the show that she's absent for the majority of the first season and is mostly kept out of the action of the season finale. Finally averted in the second season when she's made a major character. Since she resigned from SHIELD after Ultron was defeated, she can be with the Avengers more.
  • Red Is Heroic: She has red hair and she's a hero.
  • Secret Keeper: Trusted by Hulk with the knowledge of the Gamma Sapper Gloves.
  • Ship Tease: She's a bit... playful with Hawkeye during Beneath the Surface, casting lingering gazes at various couples while scoping out for HYDRA agents.
  • Spy Catsuit: She wears a very form fitting, dark blue catsuit. Lampshaded by Thor when he's in her body, when he questions how the hell she does anything in her suit. She gets a new, more stylized suit in season 3, one boasting a Chest Insignia and Tron Lines while still looking very form-fitting.
  • She's Got Legs: There are moments where the animators goes out of their way to show that she has very long muscular yet shapely legs. A good example is when she is setting herself on a chair while interrogating the Red Skull.
  • The Stoic: Deadpan Snarker tendencies aside, she's very level-headed and serious. This proves to become extremely important at the end of the first half of the second season when she's the only one in the universe besides the Sorcerer Supreme himself who can wield the Infinity Stones relatively safely and resist their temptations.
  • The Smurfette Principle: Is currently the only female Avenger... and was the only female character in the show until very late into the first season.
  • Transhuman Treachery: Leads Dracula's troops against the team after being bitten.
  • Whole Costume Reference: She wears the costume and mask of longtime Iron Man foe Madame Masque in "Planet Doom". In "Dark Avengers", her dual-wielding pistols, pale skin, dark-painted eyes and dark clothes call to mind Domino, a mutant mercenary from X-Men.

     The Falcon 

Sam Wilson / The Falcon

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/falcon-avengers-assemble_4139.jpg
Voiced by: Bumper Robinson

Former S.H.I.E.L.D. recruit and naive newcomer to the team. Tends to act like a fanboy around the other heroes.


  • Actor Allusion: Sam was told by J.A.R.V.I.S to wear the War Machine armor, but instead went with the Falcon suit. War Machine, like Falcon in this series, was voiced by Bumper Robinson in the previous series.
  • Adorkable: He's a superhero fanboy and he brings the team cookies that his mom baked.
  • Arm Cannon: As opposed to using handguns like his Ultimate and MCU selves, Season 4!Falcon uses wrist-mounted blasters.
  • Audience Surrogate: He acts as a stand-in for the audience.
  • Badass Beard: As part of his Plot-Relevant Age-Up, he started to sport a similar beard to the one Anthony Mackie sports as the character.
  • Badass Normal: Like Tony, he's an ordinary human relying on a Stark-designed high-tech combat suit.
  • Be Careful What You Wish For: He wanted to see dinosaurs in "Savage". Well, he got his wish...
  • Black and Nerdy: The only black member of the team, and a tech expert smart enough to impress Stark.
  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: Along with Hulk, he does not appear in Black Panther's Quest, nor is he mentioned.
  • Composite Character: He started off as a friend of Tony's akin to James Rhodes and was even meant to pilot the War Machine armor. Additionally, he started off with a similar appearance to the classic Falcon, yet during his time with Kang, he took up an appearance akin to his Marvel Cinematic Universe incarnation's costume in Avengers: Age of Ultron and Captain America: Civil War. Additionally, in the alternate reality of "Planet Doom", his counterpart there had a costume similar to his Ultimate Marvel incarnation and the one his MCU incarnation initially wore in Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
  • Clothes Make the Superman: Wears a winged flight suit.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: He starts out with white clothing before he ditched it for a black and red costume and while it seems to be an Evil Costume Switch at first after working with Kang, he is still a heroic Avenger first.
  • Enemy Mine: When Wasp and Vision find him, he's working with Kang to save the universe because Kang's own time travel endangered it.
  • Feather Flechettes: His standard weapon.
  • Flight: Thanks to the Falcon suit.
  • Gadgeteer Genius: Becomes his main characterization in season 2. Compared to Stark, Falcon's inventions tend to be smaller, but fulfill more specific functions. He basically becomes the team's Batman.
  • The Knights Who Say "Squee!": He was a big Avengers fan before becoming one himself (he still is even after joining the team). He also fanboys over Hyperion until his true colors come out.
  • Mistaken Identity: He saves a kid from Hyperion, the kid says "Thanks, Hawkeye" before running away, much to Falcon's dismay.
  • Naïve Newcomer: Made fun of frequently too.
  • Plot-Relevant Age-Up: Unlike the other Avengers, when the Wasp and the Vision find him in "The Once and Future Kang", he's grown into an adult and assumed an appearance akin to his second MCU costume. Unlike most examples of this trope, he's going to stay that way for the rest of the series.
  • Razor Wings: He uses his wings as a melee weapon, basically turning his arms into giant blades.
  • Same Character, but Different: Because he spent years in the Bad Future with Kang, he has aged into an adult, and he has matured far from that happy-go-lucky kid we knew him as at the beginning of the series.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: In response to watching the Hulk and Hawkeye tearing apart the Tower in one of their fights he looks across the hall at Captain America, says "This is your problem, Captain Hall Monitor" and goes back to bed.
  • Token Minority: The only non-white member of the team for the first three seasons.
  • Underestimating Badassery: The Space Phantoms found out the hard way that there's a reason Tony picked him for the team.
  • Whole Costume Reference: He wears the costume of his Ultimate Marvel counterpart in "Planet Doom", which is weird that it isn't the default costume as the show otherwise is known for taking after the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the MCU!Falcon wears costumes based on the Ultimate outfit as opposed to the classic white and red costumes. As part of his Plot-Relevant Age-Up, he assumes an appearance more akin to his second MCU costume.
  • Younger and Hipper: This version of Sam is a teenager as opposed to an adult. At first, until his time with Kang.
  • Younger Than They Look: He's stated to be seventeen, yet has the same build than an adult character. Though his time with Kang caused him to later avert this as he's now an actual adult.

     Ant-Man 

Scott Lang / Ant-Man

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mv5bmtuxmtgwmjk5nf5bml5banbnxkftztgwmjg5mde1nte_v1_sy317_cr1040214317_al.jpg
Voiced by: Grant George (Seasons 1-3), Josh Keaton (Season 4-present)

Newest member of the Avengers, having joined during the Ultron crisis.


  • Ascended Extra: He appeared in a single episode in Season One, but then joined the team for real in Season 2. His membership even carries in to Ultimate Spider-Man and Guardians of the Galaxy (2015).
  • Characterization Marches On: For the first few seasons, he written with a more serious, science-oriented personality, and generally acted more like Hank Pym from the comics. Starting in Season 4, he was suddenly rewritten to be more like his movie counterpart, and is now characterized as more of a sarcastic everyman. Even his criminal background seems to have changed, with Season 2 saying that he was busted for making tech for supervillains, while Season 4 says he's an ex-thief/burglar.
  • Composite Character: He's Scott Lang, but his science background and mastery of Pym Particles are more in line with the original Ant-Man, Hank Pym. Word of God is that this was intentional, as he was conceived as a composite of the various Ant-Men from the comics.
    • In season 4, he wears a new helmet (covering his entire face), and is more light-hearted and prone to cracking jokes, both aspects taken from the live-action film version.
  • Demoted to Extra: After officially joining the team in Season 3, he was regulated to sporadic guest appearances. However, he officially returns as a full time Avenger in Season 4. Unfortunately, he has only one appearance in the Season 5 episode "The Vibranium Curtain - Part 1".
  • The Eeyore: Whenever something unlucky happens to Ant-Man, he tends to sulk about it. For example, when an unstable Pym-Particle hit him, he does nothing but sit on a molecule and mopes over the fact that he can't regrow himself.
  • Horrible Judge of Character: Before joining Avengers, he made tech for a lot of supervillains and seemed to be unaware that his employers were dangerous.
  • No Social Skills: Downplayed. Hawkeye aside, he can get along more or less fine with the other Avengers, but it's mentioned he tends to not stay very informed about the superhero community, and often prefers the company of his ants over humans.
  • Put on a Bus: In the Season 3 premiere, it's stated that Ant-Man went solo from the team sometime after the battle with Thanos, as no one thought there was any threat that warranted the full strength of the Avengers. Later on, Ant-Man realized he missed being an Avenger, and agreed he will return to the Avengers when the time is right. By the time Season 4 comes along, he returns to the fold (albeit as part of a new Avengers team).
  • Sixth Ranger: He becomes this to Iron Man's Avengers since Captain America's team have split and became S.H.I.E.L.D.'s Avengers. After beating M.O.D.O.K., Ant-Man makes it clear he's gonna be around for a little while.
    • After Ultron was defeated, and the Avengers back together, Ant-Man is a full member now.
  • Sir Not-Appearing-in-This-Trailer: Curiously, despite confirmation that he's still part of the show, he is not featured on the poster for Season 3.
  • Size Shifter: He can either make himself larger or smaller with the Pym particles.
  • The Smart Guy: As the second full Science Hero on the team.
  • Taking the Bullet: Ant-Man jumps and saves Mrs. Wilson from an unstable Pym Particle. Unfortunately, the unstable particle overrode his stable ones, making him unable to size himself back up.

All-New, All-Different Avengers

     Black Panther 

T'Challa/Black Panther

The super-powered warrior king of Wakanda, a highly advanced nation hidden in Africa.


  • Absurdly Sharp Claws: Built into his vibranium suit.
  • Animal Themed Super Being: His costume and powers are based off his namesake animal.
  • Ascended Extra: He was initially a guest star in Season 3, but becomes an official member of the team in Season 4.
  • Bodyguard Babes: The Dora Milaje, his personal squad of all-female bodyguards.
  • The Chains of Commanding: Thor says T'Challa is not a naturally cruel or mean individual, but that being the ruler of an entire nation puts him under a lot of pressure and causes him to have to make a lot of difficult choices.
  • Damning With Faint Praise: He's insulted when Tony says that Wakandan tech is as good as the kind made by Stark Industries. In T'Challa's mind, Wakandan tech is far superior.
  • The Chessmaster: He steals Captain America's shield in order to lure Klaue to Wakanda, knowing that the smuggler won't be able to resist it.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: He wears a dark costume and has "Black" in his name, but he's one of the good guys.
  • Foil: His relationship with Captain Marvel resembles the relationship between Captain America and Iron Man with Black Panther acting as the Captain America of the team in personality.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: He was first seen on a computer monitor in the Season 2 finale.
  • Easily Condemned: At the end of "Descent of the Shadow", Black Widow is quick to accuse him of murdering Captain America. The following episode "The Last Avenger" has the other Avengers take Black Widow's word and try to take on Black Panther, resulting in him cutting off all ties with them. In fact, he closes Wakanda's borders from the rest of the world.
  • Hero with Bad Publicity: As a result of being blamed for Captain America's death, T'Challa has been declared a public enemy to the world.
  • Hidden Depths: Thor suggests that he's a much kinder person than he lets on.
  • Honorary True Companion: Ever since Season 3, Black Panther is the Avengers' regular go-to if they need additional help, which became rather prudent in the Season 4 premiere. Afterwards, he was the only Avenger left, and it was up to him to recruit a new team through the Vision.
  • I Work Alone: Like Captain Marvel, he's initially wary of the Avengers, as he thinks of them as little more than a bunch of bickering children. And also like her, he changes his tune after working with them and getting to see how competent they truly are.
  • Legacy Character: The Black Panther identity has been passed from warrior to warrior throughout history. T'Challa inherited the mantle after the death of his father.
  • Made of Indestructium: His suit is made of vibranium, the same metal used to make Captain America's shield.
  • No Sense of Humor: He tells Ant-Man that he finds his jokes rather annoying, though it is implied that he may be softening on this a bit.
  • Persona Non Grata: In the Season 5 episode "Into the Deep", Attuma bans Black Panther from Atlantis for breaking and entering.
  • Role Reprisal: From The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes!.
  • Royals Who Actually Do Something: He runs Wakanda, but that doesn't stop him from kicking ass in the field.
  • Super Senses: He has enhanced senses similar to those of a jungle cat.
  • We Used to Be Friends: As of "Descent of the Shadow" and "The Last Avenger", the Avengers blame him for Captain America's death and he cuts off all ties with them following the incident.
  • You Are in Command Now: He leads a new team of Avengers after the original team vanishes.

     The Vision 

The Vision

Voiced by: David Kaye

An Artificial Human with the power to alter his density.


  • Ascended Extra: He's a guest star in Season 3, but becomes an official Avenger in Season 4.
  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: He is noticeably absent in Season 5 and is unmentioned.
  • Emergent Human: He is a Synthezoid still learning to adapt to humanity. In fact, his debut episode involves Thor trying to teach him the concept of friendship.
  • Flying Brick: He possesses both flight and tremendous strength.
  • Frickin' Laser Beams: He can fire one out of the gem in his forehead.
  • Humans Are Special: This belief is a major part of the reason why he defends the world against Ultron.
  • Innocently Insensitive: He sometimes comes off as rude or uncaring, but in reality, it's just his programming.
  • Intangible Man: He can phase through objects.
  • Literal-Minded: He has trouble grasping sarcasm and certain turns of phrase.
  • Mission Control: Back in the day, he would monitor threats from a supercomputer and relay information to the Avengers, but hardly fought on the frontlines.
  • No-Sell: He is very resistant to reprogramming, even by Asgardian magic, but not possession.
  • Remember the New Guy?: He shows up with no origin story given, and the Avengers are already familiar with him, and he has been helping them from the sidelines.

     Captain Marvel 

Carol Danvers / Captain Marvel

Voiced by: Grey Griffin

A former United States Air Force pilot who gained superpowers after being experimented on by the Kree.


  • Adaptation Distillation: The long (and somewhat confusing) history of the Captain Marvel mantle isn't mentioned in the show. As far as the audience knows, Carol is the first and only Captain Marvel, and never used the Ms. Marvel identity.
  • Adaptational Jerkass: She's much more arrogant, condescending and combative than her comic counterpart is usually depicted as being.
  • Adaptational Wimp: While Carol still has super strength in this version, it's downplayed severely. A mild version occurs in the S3 finale when she apparently fights Captain America (several levels of strength below her) evenly, but it's very pronounced in Guardians of the Galaxy (2015), where her punches have absolutely no effect on Drax. Or she just keeps not using her superstrength for some reason. Later episodes in Season 4 suggest she usually holds back against those she percieves as weaker foes.
  • Alien Abduction: How she got her powers, being experimented by the Kree.
  • Ascended Extra: She's a guest star in Season 3, but joins the team for real in Season 4.
  • Boisterous Bruiser: A rare female example. She proudly recounts her past triumphs to Falcon, much like Thor is fond of doing.
  • The Captain: She's Captain Marvel because she was also an Air Force captain.
  • Captain Superhero: She's the show's other Captain.
  • Collapsible Helmet: She has one built into her suit.
  • Demoted to Extra: She makes a few appearances in Season 5, since the season focuses on Black Panther.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: She first appeared alongside Black Panther on a computer screen in the Season 2 finale. She was also referenced in the Halloween episode in Season 3, with several young girls shown dressed as her.
  • Foil: Her relationship with Black Panther resembles the relationship between Cpatain America and Iron Man with Captain Marvel acting as the Iron Man of the team in personality.
  • Friend to All Children: She's nice to children and seems to genuinely like them.
  • Flying Brick: She can fly, has super strength, and can fire energy blasts from her hands.
  • I Work Alone: She initially doesn't have much use for the Avengers, arguing that they'd only slow her down or get in her way. However, she ends up changing her mind after she realizes she needs to work with them to save Earth from a Kree plot. At the end of her debut episode, she accepts an offer to become a reserve Avenger.
  • Interservice Rivalry: As a former member of the air force, she frequently clashes with Captain America, who is a former member of the army. She does later concede that the air force wouldn't be effective without the army, and vice versa.
  • Light 'em Up: Shoots "photonic blasts", though these are of a dark violet color.
  • Military Superhero: Used to be in the air force, and mentions being on a mission from the National Security Council.
  • Remember the New Guy?: Most of the Avengers already know who she is when she first appears, though Falcon hadn't yet met her in person. She even has an intense rivalry with Captain America that had never been mentioned prior to that point. The Season 2 premiere of Guardians of the Galaxy (2015) shows the extent of her relationship with the Avengers long before she officially joined them.
  • Superpower Lottery: She has one of the most varied powersets in the show: flight, super-strength, super-durability, energy blasts, and energy absorption.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: As mentioned above, her comic counterpart usually isn't this rude or arrogant.

     Ms. Marvel 

Kamala Khan / Ms. Marvel

Voiced by: Kathreen Khavari

A teenage girl from New Jersey who becomes a costumed superhero after discovering that she's an Inhuman.


  • Adorkable: She acts so goofy that it's frankly, cute.
  • Ascended Fanboy: She was a big fan of the Avengers long before she ever got her powers.
  • Audience Surrogate: Takes over this role from Falcon, acting as the most "normal" member of the new Avengers in Season 4.
  • Culture Equals Costume: Since her background is Pakistani, she wears the Shalwar Kameez, the national dress of Pakistan.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: She has a non-speaking cameo as a civilian in "The Inhuman Condition" before she actually becomes Ms. Marvel.
  • Fangirl: Specifically of Captain Marvel, whom she puts as her favorite hero and emulates by calling herself Ms. Marvel.
  • Invocation: She shouts "Embiggen!" before using her powers to grow.
  • The Knights Who Say "Squee!": She geeks out over meeting Iron Man and Captain America, and even gets to take a selfie with the latter.
  • Rubber Man: She's able to stretch and grow her limbs.
  • Scarf of Asskicking: She wears a rather long one as part of her costume.
  • Shapeshifter: She can twist and reshape her entire body into basically anything she wants.
  • Size Shifter: She has the ability to make herself grow into a larger form as part of her shapeshifting.
  • Wake Up, Go to School, Save the World: Kamala's whole character revolves around having to balance academics with superheroics.

    The Wasp 

Hope Van Dyne / The Wasp

Voiced by: Kari Wahlgren

  • Brought Down to Badass: Engages Crimson Widow in a fist fight after her armor is damaged, and surprisingly manages to hold her own.
  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: She, along with a few of her fellow New Avenger members, doesn't appear in Season 5
  • Clothes Make the Superman: All of her powers are from her suit.
  • Flying Firepower: Has wings that allow her to fly, and can shoot "bio-electric" energy blasts from her hands.
  • Remember the New Guy?: She's the only new member of the team in Season 4 who didn't appear in Season 3. This makes her introduction, where she apparently already knows the Avengers and is called upon by Vision to join the team, somewhat jarring.
  • Size Shifter: Can use Pym Particles just like Scott, but only to shrink.note 

    SPOILER CHARACTER 

Dr. Jane Foster/Thunderstrike

Voiced by: Erica Lindbeck

An intern for Tony Stark who specializes in cross-dimensional research. When the Avengers were displaced throughout space and time, she would research a way to bring them back.


  • Action Girl: From Battleworld onward she became more than capable in a fight.
  • Badass Bookworm: Equal parts scientist and equal parts fighter.
  • Badass Normal: Not so much in her first appearances, but during her time in Battleworld, she can handle herself well in a fight after learning to use blasters.
  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: Despite becoming the Sixth Ranger to the Avengers at the end of Season 4, she doesn't appear in Season 5.
  • Composite Character: While she does use Mjolnir and gained the Thor form she had during Thor (2014), Thor can still use the hammer and she is given her own hammer and the codename "Thunderstrike" by Odin, a la Eric Masterson.
  • Empowered Badass Normal: After Thor sent Mjolnir to save her from the Beyonder, she was declared worthy and temporarily fought with Mjolnir.
  • Shock and Awe: After becoming Thunderstrike.
