    • Chloe fangirling over Loki.

  • Autobots, Rock Out!: The kids do this when attacking the Helicarrier.
  • Avengers, Assemble!: Of course.
  • Awesome, yet Impractical: The S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier. It takes a lot of Andy's arc reactor technology to keep it afloat and is likely very expensive.

  • Beauty Is Never Tarnished: Abby, Chloe, Izzy, Natasha, Bobbi, Sharon and Maria just get small cuts or covered in dirt and dust.
  • Berserk Button:
    • Do not endanger the kids. Their parents will make you pay for it. Likewise with endangering the parents - the kids will show you just how dangerous they are.
    • It's not a good idea to diss Abby and Peter's Russian heritage.
    • It's also not a good idea to imply that Abby is crazy because of her schizophrenia and psychic powers.
  • Beware the Nice Ones:
    • Bruce and Nathan Banner - the Hulk inside the meek and quiet scientists.
    • Steve and Ben Rogers - they are two of the nicest and politest people you can come across, but can hit hard in a fight.

    Abby: Well, look at this! Appears we got here just in the nick of time. What does that make us?
    Izzy: Big damn heroes, sir!
    Abby: Ain't we just.
  • Big Good: Nick Fury, since he commands all of the heroes. For the Avengers, it's Steve.

  • Boring Invincible Hero: Averted. During the final battle, each of the Avengers and the kids are winded, wounded or pinned down.
