MSFN Thoughts: The Avengers, Earth’s mightiest heroes, are currently not that great a team in Marvel Strike Force. Since some of them like Iron Man for example, are better off on another team, there’s only a few to choose from. I’m currently using Captain America, Black Widow, Hawkeye, Hulk, and have thrown in Winter Soldier (yes, I know he’s not tagged as an Avenger in the game). Team is alright and I mainly just use them in Blitz. Hopefully there will be a rework in the future that adds better team synergy or something to help them out.
Marvel Team Bio:
The Avengers Initiative was the brainchild of S.H.I.E.L.D. Director Nick Fury. He first approached Tony Stark with the idea, following Tony’s defeat of Obadiah Stane and his subsequent public announcement that he was Iron Man. Fury kept his eye on several potential members, as Bruce Banner struggled with life as the Hulk, the Asgardian Thor appeared on Earth, and Steve Rogers, AKA World War II hero Captain America, was discovered alive decades after his apparent death. In the meantime, some of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s most skilled members, Black Widow (Natasha Romanoff), and Hawkeye (Clint Barton), were making a name for themselves and impressing Fury.
When the Asgardian trickster god Loki arrived on Earth and absconded using the massively effective object referred to as the Tesseract—possessing Hawkeye and converting him into his brainwashed pawn within the process—Fury thought it was needed to finally bring together his possible extremely team, getting in touch with in Romanoff, Banner, Rogers and Stark. Captain America and Iron Man, assisted by Black Widow, were able to capture Loki, but during their flight back to S.H.I.E.L.D., Thor arrived, attempting to bring his brother back to Asgard to face justice. A fight ensued between Thor and Iron Man, but Captain America broke it up, and the group all returned with their prisoner, Loki, to the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier.
While Stark and Banner ad identified some popular terrain through their love of science, the would-be staff were actually at odds since they discussed their following plan of action, and quarrels increased in the wake of finding that S.H.I.E.L.D. had been making use of the Tesseract to recreate hazardous HYDRA weaponry.
Loki revealed that it was his plan to be captured all along and triggered Banner to turn into the Hulk. While engaging in a fight with Thor, Hulk nearly destroyed the Helicarrier, before crashing down to Earth. Escaping in the chaos, Loki then ejected Thor from the Helicarrier in his own enclosed cell and retrieved his scepter, killing Phil Coulson with it. Black Widow fought Hawkeye, who had arrived to help Loki, managing to bring her friend back to his true self in the process. Loki continued on to New York where, with the help of the brainwashed Dr. Erik Selvig, he opened a portal into space, unleashing a devastating Chitauri army.
Encouraged by the heartbreaking death of Phil Coulson, Steel Person, Black Widow, Captain The usa, and Hawkeye all headed to New York City to combat Loki and his awesome penetrating Chitauri pushes, and were actually soon joined again by Thor and Hulk, using the six heroes truly assembling since the Avengers for the first time.
While helped bring together due to a lengthy-word program by S.H.I.E.L.D. Director Nick Fury, the Avengers operate independently upon their formation, working with S.H.I.E.L.D., but not answering to them or any other government agency. In the wake of the revelation that S.H.I.E.L.D. had been infiltrated by HYDRA, the Avengers arguably become even more independent, as Tony Stark continues to provide them with their equipment, resources, and staff. The team also relocates from Avengers Tower (originally Stark Tower) in Manhattan to a Stark-owned facility in upstate New York.
Adhering to devastation wrought with the Very Villain Ultron, the Avengers increase the amount of members to its lineup, such as Sam Wilson AKA Falcon, Wanda Maximoff AKA Scarlet Witch, the android Sight, and James Rhodes AKA Battle Equipment.
The Sokovia Accords involve the Avengers to get started responding to on the United Nations, who would possess a say in what missions they perform and which parts around the globe they might operate in. Under Iron Man’s leadership, some of the Avengers briefly operate under these guidelines, as they seek to halt the dissenting Captain America’s rogue actions, along with the Avengers who fight with him. With Iron Man and Captain America’s conflict escalating and left unresolved, the Avengers effectively break up—though Stark, War Machine (James Rhodes) and Vision still operate out of Avengers headquarters, there is no longer an ongoing team.
The reunion of several Avengers during Thanos’ attack on Earth, including Steve Rogers, realizes the group running by themselves again and up against the wants of the authorities, as Rhodes disobeys straight orders from Thaddeus Ross to arrest fugitives Rogers, Wanda Maximoff, Natasha Romanoff, and Sam Wilson.
