• Scarlet Witch & Quicksilver are the mutant twin children of Magneto, the X-Men’s most respected villain. Previously villains themselves, they joined the Avengers in issue #16 along with another ex-villain, Hawkeye. There’s much they could contribute to the cinematic version of the team in terms of powers, visuals, diversity, and so forth, but divorced from Magneto, are they really all that interesting?
  • She-Hulk is, as the name suggests, a sort of female version of the Hulk. Jennifer Walters gained her ability to “hulk out” when her cousin, Bruce Banner, gave her an emergency transfusion of his gamma-irradiated blood. As She-Hulk, she’s more in control and far prettier than her gargantuan cousin, but her strength (and various other powers) are less significant.
  • Hercules is, well, Hercules, the super-strong half-god son of Zeus. But because we already have one god (sort of) on the Avengers in the form of Thor, he’d probably be a redundant addition. Still, it’s worth noting that he has become one of the more fun – and funny – Marvel characters of the past few years.
  • Spider-Woman is related to Spider-Man in name only, so does that mean Sony doesn’t have her movie rights? No, really, this is a serious question here.

Did we miss anybody, Screen Ranters? Would you have preferred other Avengers in place of the ones we’ve listed? Let us know in the comments.

For more post-Avengers speculation check out our Avengers Screen Rant Underground podcast as well as our explanation of the film’s post-credits sequences.

The Avengers – which garnered 4.5 stars out of 5 from our very own Kofi Outlaw – is currently in theaters, in case you weren’t aware.
