Month of Avengers/X-Men Top Fives – Longest Continuous Service by an Avenger
All month-long we’ll be featuring top five lists about either the Avengers or the X-Men. Here is an archive of all the past top five lists!
Today we’ll take a look at the top five longest continuous services by Avenger Members.
Many of Brian Michael Bendis’ Avengers served for a looong time. Heck, depending on your views on Wolverine’s service time, he might actually already be on the list (I think he had some breaks, but I could be wrong). Thor was the last one cut from the list, as Cap JUST edged him out (Thor served from #79-181). Then Hawkeye and Wonder Man. Beast had a long stint, as did most of the members of Bob Harras’ Avengers (Sersi, Black Widow, Crystal and Hercules). Vision almost sneaked on to the list from his third stint with the Avengers (West Coast Avengers and then transferring to the East Coast team for all of Hama and Harras’ run on the title).
