The World's Mightiest Heroes!

The Avengers have become a household name thanks to the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), there's no argument there. The studio has been playing with the characters, making initial side characters into stars, creating wildcards, twisting origins, and — most importantly — assembling the world's best superheroes into one team.

However, thanks to the recent Captain America: Civil War, the team has broken apart, and will have to unite again to face Thanos and the galactic threat of the Infinity Stones in the 2018 movie Avengers: Infinity War Part One.

But fighting Thanos the mad Titan will not be easy. Therefore, the avengers will need to assemble a well balanced, immensely strong, and extremely powerful team of dedicated personnel who will bring down the Titan. Of course, all of the people listed below — as well as many more — will all have to unite to fight against this "god" so they can have as much power as possible, but all I am saying is that having a few sub-teams would be great.

Before we continue on this line of thought: This article may contain *tiny* spoilers for various Marvel films, including Civil War (not anything too important though).

But without further ado, let's break down what we need to see in the reassembled Avengers team!

First Of All: A Great Leader!

It is evident that without a great leader, a team would be unable to function. This leader needs to be strong willed, charismatic, and most importantly care for the rest of the team. The obvious two candidates would be Cap and Iron Man, who have already proven to be spectacular leaders in Civil War, each leading their own sides.

A less obvious choice — but still a great one — would be Black Panther. Who could be a better leader than the King of Wakanda? In the comics, he has been a leader of numerous teams, and with his skills, intellect, and determination T'Challa would make one great leader of the Avengers.

If they really want to go all original, Star-Lord is a perfect fit. He has proven to be able to lead the Guardians (with a little bit of bribing), and would be an unexpected yet very logical choice.

Next Up: A Deadly Assassin!

The team needs someone who can do their dirty work. A stealthy and cunning, yet deadly and powerful person that will stop at nothing to finish the job. These people might not be as effective in battle against mystical forces, but they might be the only ones who can get past some of the obstacles. A few good options would be Gamora and Black Widow, the most dangerous woman in the universe and the most skilled assassin, who have shown their talent in sneakiness and assassination.

An additional choice would be Drax, who might be arrogant, but he is not called the destroyer for nothing. He is ruthless, skilled, and most importantly badass, and can be a deadly assassin. Another less obvious choice would be Hawkeye, who might not be everyone's favorite avenger, but has proven time after time to be "somewhat" useful.

Furthermore, we need: a powerhouse!

These people are the strongest of them all, the blasters, the all mighty. These people need to be able to just smash their way through anything, any enemy, any wall, and any obstacle too big for the assassins. The most obvious, and probably reasonable choice would be Hulk or Thor. Hulk just keeps on getting stronger the more he gets angry (he is always angry) and with his "HULK SMASH!" moment, he can break any and every thing in his way. Thor, another heavy hitter, can almost do anything with his mighty hammer, Mjolnir, and will not give up until the win, or until death. They have both proven to be some of the most useful members of the Avengers, who can also smash some ass (kick is not so appropriate here).

Another person that tightly fits in this spot is Vision, who has yet to fully unleash his great powers that come from the infinity stone in his forehead. Unlike Thor or Hulk, Vision is merciful when needed, and he might be powerful, but he is also mindful of the situation. Another choice could be new comer Captain Marvel! In the comics, she in known as one of the strongest and most kick ass woman in the Marvel universe. Her super strength, flight, laser beams, and amazing pilot skills are some of the most powerful in Marvel, and she can be one dangerous woman. Finally, if you want some cosmic race in the team, Groot (who should be big again by now) is proven that he is almost unstoppable, unless you have fire.

You can't go without: a magical element!

Magic was only introduced into the Marvel Cinematic Universe recently, and we already know that it will be expanded upon in future films. The team cannot survive this galactic adventure without a magic user, a mystical being, a sorcerer, a wizard, a witch. A person that was already introduced to the MCU that can take on this rule is Scarlet Witch, one of my personal favorites. She might only be discovering her powers, but Wanda has already shown that even with these she is one of the strongest personals in the universe. She is so dangerous, she is basically the cause of civil war, because the Sokovia accords were "kinda" made especially for her. Her magic is yet to be fully discovered, and this battle is a good opportunity to fully unleash it. She has already been confirmed to appear in this film, so might as well take this role!

If she is not an option, you could possibly add new comer Doctor Strange and maybe, just maybe, his lover Clea. The Sorcerer Supreme is making his silver screen appearance later this year and just by the trailer we can see that we will get some inception mambo jambo, mixed with magical old ladies and mystical artifacts. In the comics, Doctor Strange and his Clea are both some of the strongest beings in the magical realms, and hopefully they join together on screen for one bad ass magical adventure. If we really want a wild guess, why not Adam Warlock? His story is all about the infinity stones, and he was already an Easter egg in Guardians of the Galaxy, and fans have been begging to see him on screen.

Finally: a comic relief!

Everybody has dissed Batman v Superman about "not being fun" and how can a movie be fun if it has no humor? We need a sarcastic, savage, original, and most importantly hilarious person that can cheer up the team when they need it. The two top choices would be Spiderman and Antman. Let bugs rule! The Antman movie was one of the most hilarious movies of the year. It was light hearted, yet action packet. Scott just proved that he is still a comedian in civil war with one of my favorite lines in the movie.

"Hey, it's your conscious, we haven't spoken for a while."

Spiderman just came into the universe, and he has already been called the best on-screen Peter Parker / Spiderman, and mainly because of his silliness and humor. Both would be amazing to watch interact with each other, and it would be a pleasure to sit back and enjoy their humor.

an additional choice is Rocket Raccoon, that little guy has a big mouth! Alongside Star-Lord, Rocket Raccoon was one of the main points of humor in Guardians of the Galaxy, and that sense of humor and sarcasm is what has turned Rocket into one of the most loved characters in pop culture. My final choice is someone who has showed their funny side, and that is Falcon! The bromance between Sam and Bucky in Civil War has brought out the best in Falcon, and his humor was always delightful.

In conclusion:

Now I know that i might have missed some Avengers, or that some just fit into multiple categories, or that they are all going to be in the movie anyway! But this is just for me to have fun and categorize them. But anyway, I hope you enjoyed reading and voting! make sure to follow me for some more awesome posts...
