I haven't been following the Avengers comics for quite some time. I tried doing a search on Google, but all I got were conflicting or older rosters.

Who are the current members as of July 2012?

  • The question may be too localized in time, but I don't think it's general reference. The user spent time trying to find the answer and couldn't, which means it's not exactly easily found. I had to dig out physical issues to answer it. – Brett White Jun 29 '12 at 13:29
  • @BrettWhite The question is for the "current members", which will change in the future (too localized), and it only took me ten seconds to find (general reference). (Granted, it's not as detailed..) – Izkata Jun 30 '12 at 0:04
  • I'm going to pass on the too localized question, but Brett's question is pretty significantly different from Wikipedia. Wikipedia may contain answers to questions, but assuming it's actually right in a given case is a completely different question (no pun intended). – dlanod Jun 30 '12 at 22:55
  • For the time being, I'm pretty content with Brett's response since he did state that he physically went back and looked through his collection. The Wikia normally has what I need, but I had a couple of concerns with page. The "Current Members" at the top have characters that aren't listed anywhere in the "Current Rosters" at the bottom. And when I checked a week ago, the history showed the last accepted revision was in April 2011. – Anthony Jul 1 '12 at 17:18

Avengers vs. X-Men has really confused who is definitively on which team, as eveyr Avengers book currently features a squadron of some sort. Going through my back issues, though, to the issues before AvX:

Avengers (May 2012; this is the main Avengers team, meant to have the heavy hitters in it): Iron Man (Tony Stark), Hawkeye (Clint Barton), Spider-Woman (Jessica Drew), The Protector (Noh-Varr), Captain America (Steve Rogers), Storm (Ororo T'Challa), The Vision, The Red Hulk (Gen. Thunderbolt Ross), Quake (Daisy Johnson)

New Avengers (June 2012; this is Luke Cage's hand-picked, street level Avengers team): Luke Cage, Ms. Marvel (Carol Danvers), The Thing (Ben Grimm), Iron Fist (Danny Rand), Spider-Man (Peter Parker), Wolverine (James Howlett), Dr. Strange (Stephen Strange), Mockingbird (Bobbi Morse), Jessica Jones, Victoria Hand, Daredevil (Matt Murdock)

Secret Avengers (June 2012; this is the covert ops, hidden from the public team): Hawkeye (Clint Barton), Black Widow (Natasha Romanoff), Beast (Henry McCoy), Valkyrie (Brunnhilde), The Human Torch (Jim Hammond), Captain Britain (Brian Braddock), Venom (Flash Thompson)

Avengers Assemble (July 2012; this title was launched in conjunction with the movie, and stars the movie's roster BUT in Marvel Comics continuity): Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, Hulk (Bruce Banner), Black Widow, Hawkeye

  • What exactly is Avengers Assemble? Most of the info I found doing a quick search was about the series to replace Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes. It was mentioned on the Wikipedia page, but the link just redirected me to the movie page. I'm assuming it's just some sort of comic tie-in to the movie? – Anthony Jun 29 '12 at 21:24
  • @Anthony I added a summary of what each team's purpose is – Brett White Jun 29 '12 at 23:10
  • Is that the Avengers Assemble TV series, or a comic with the same name? If it's the series, then Falcon joins the Avengers on the first episode of Avengers Assemble, and remains a member throughout the series. Scott Lang Ant-Man is also a member after a while. – DCShannon Apr 21 '16 at 20:03

    Those are actually a few months old. I know that Storm and Black panther are on the Avengers, and Hawkeye and Captain Britain are on Secret Avengers (and Moon Knight, Nova and War Machine are not). Avengers vs. X-Men has confused everything. – Brett White Jun 29 '12 at 13:12
