    Lobo. Now that's a name I haven't heard in nearly 20 years. It's good to see that he's been so successful compared to Wolverine.

    At least (in the right hands, at least... in other words, Giffen's) Lobo doesn't take himself so seriously, which is what's ruined Wolverine.

    Just got back from the midnight premiere and I really enjoyed the movie. For me, Hulk was the sticking point, if they got him wrong then the entire franchise would fall apart in my eyes. Fortunately this is the best onscreen Hulk ever made and I loved the interactions between Bruce Banner and Tony Stark. The only minor disappointment is that I really wished Hulk would speak.

    There are rumors that they might make another stand alone Hulk movie with Mark Ruffalo. I would really like to see that.

    Overall, I thought the movie was awesome. This is exactly the kind of superhero movie that I always wanted to see made when I was reading about all of these characters as a kid. They even managed to make Hawkeye a likable character and that's a major accomplishment.

    I know, I would have thought the same thing if I hadn't seen the movie yet because I absolutely despise Hawkeye in the comics. However, Jeremy Renner does a good job of portraying him as an honorable soldier (for the most part without giving too much away), instead of a petulant child who rails against authority just for the sake of railing against authority.

    Joss Whedon is God...he pulled off what could have been a disaster in someone elses' hands. Incredible action set pieces, great pacing, snappy dialog AND character development. No wonder A list critics are giving it 4 stars. Run...don't walk to see the Avengers this weekend. (Stay past the credits twice...wink, wink). Loki surpasses General Zod as a true Super Villain. GL...you need to see this movie so you can understand what happens when they get it RIGHT!

    Wow. What a great movie!!

    So much action, yet plenty of story and character development. I will definately go see it again..but this time in 2D. The 3D got a bit overwhelming at times.

    very impressive the way all the characters were given equal importance. And equal screen time. I think Iron man may have had just a bit more than the rest. But damn what a great show. I was shocked to see HIM after the credits. If they pull off his inclusion in the sequel. I have very high hopes that a certain other villain in the dc universe could be pulled off. The character I 'm thinking of is practically a carbon copy of HIM.
