What Does Your Favorite Avenger Say About You?

Unless you have been living in a cave with no Wi-Fi, you know The Avengers are preparing to take over the box office once more when The Avengers: Age of Ultron hits theaters on Friday, May 1. I have yet to meet a person who does not love the ragtag group of superheroes, but don't we all love one just a teensy bit more than the others? I know when Cap and Iron Man got into an argument over ethics in the first movie, I was not so secretly on Tony's side. So, I have to wonder — does my favorite The Avenger character say something about me?

With a group full of strong, diverse personalities, it is not surprising that we would gravitate toward one Avenger over the other. Everyone needs a hero — not just because they're good to have on hand during an alien invasion. While we may not have the strength of Thor or the superspy skills of Black Widow, we can still find a piece of ourselves in the characters because despite their fantastic job, they are all very human. (Well, Thor is metaphorically a human, even though he is technically a god with a home world in desperate need of a redecorator.)

Read on to find out what your favorite Avenger says about you.

Iron Man (Tony Stark)

Either you are cool, or you gravitate toward cool people. You present yourself as laid back, but deep down you actually care about people — and there is probably a cause you are seriously passionate about. I'm talking start-your-own-charity-to-support-it passionate. The world sees you as the most confident person in the room, but you have your share of insecurities and regrets. Because you are so fun loving, people never seem to realize how smart you are until you drop a ton of knowledge on them. You also have a major anti-authoritarian streak.

Also, no matter the circumstances, you are always up for grabbing a bite to eat.

Captain America (Steve Rogers)

You are a genuinely good person, and your sincerity can sometimes be confused with naivety. It is hard for you to mask your feelings and you go into every situation with an open heart. Honest to a fault, you are everyone's rock. While you would never seek out the leadership position on a team or a group project, you always seem to end up in charge anyway. Some people think you don't have a sense of humor, but those who know you best are always impressed by your dry wit.

It is easy to confuse you with a hipster, but there is nothing ironic about your love of old music, movies, and morals.

Black Widow (Natasha Romanov)

Truth time: you are a little bit scary. That's cool though. It just means people know better than to get on your bad side. It is incredibly hard to read you, and you like it that way — it means you can enter any social situation with ease. You've been through a lot in your life, but it has all just made you stronger. You are a serious workaholic and you will not apologize to anyone for it, because you love your job and you are awesome at it. All that aside, your very best quality is your loyalty. You don't let a lot of people get close to you, but those who do make it into your inner circle know you always have their back.

Your deep, dark secret is that you have a soft side, but only your BFF knows it — and they know what will happen if they ever tell anyone else about it.

The Hulk/Bruce Banner

You feel chronically misunderstood, and that makes you angry. You've just got a lot going on in your life. It's stressful and people don't entirely get why you are so moody sometimes. Don't let them get you down. Life is hard and you just have a lot of feelings. That may feel like a weakness, but it is actually a strength. You are also crazy smart and mild-mannered most of the time. In fact, if you didn't keep your feelings bottled up, you might not... umm... "Hulk out" so much.

Don't be afraid to let people get close. Your friends balance you out and help your best qualities shine.


Family means everything to you, even though your family situation is complicated (and frustrating sometimes). Because of your family obligations it sometimes feels like the weight of the world is resting on your shoulders, but you rarely ever let it get you down. You are awesome and even though you don't let on, you totally know it. Your biggest flaw is your impatience. You act first and think later, a trait that has gotten you into trouble more than once.

At the end of the day, you love to laugh, drink and be merry — but you never forget your responsibilities.

Hawkeye (Clint Barton)

You always root for the underdog. Sometimes you do not entirely understand your place in your friend group — you are kind of the Zeppo of the bunch. At least, you are until they need your help, then you break out your particular skill set and realize just how essential you are. Just because you feel like Charlie Brown that doesn't mean you don't have the bravery of Robin Hood lurking inside, though: All of your friends think of you as their secret weapon, you just don't realize it yet.

Admit it, you are totally a sports fan too, right?
