Marvel Comics had been around for a long time, but, it would be an understatement to say that the comic book publisher was struggling to stay afloat. That’s when the Marvel Studios announced Iron-Man, a film based on a superhero whom hardly anyone outside the Marvel Comics fandom knew about. There was probably nobody who could have anticipated the kind of impact the Robert Downey Jr. film made on the audiences. In fact, there was so much skepticism around that even the first choice actor Tom Cruise, declined the role. However, it turned out to be a great movie and one that set into motion Marvel’s plans to establish a shared superhero universe franchise based on its superhero squad called The Avengers. Step by step, Marvel achieved that goal in 2012 with the release of Marvel’s The Avengers, a film which saw superheroes like Thor, Iron-Man, Captain America, and the Hulk join hands on the big screen for the first time. The movie completely dominated the pop-culture with its great brand of humor, fantastic characters and totally rocking action scenes. All of a sudden, characters like Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) went from near obscurity into becoming globally renowned superheroes whereas characters like Captain America and Iron-Man developed cult-following.
Just like how everything goes in the pop-culture, there was no way that the Avengers could have escaped being the target of online humor. After all, here was a superhero team that was not only doing well at box office but, with heroes like Iron-Man and Thor, the franchise ensured that there were plenty of meme-worthy one-liners and scenes. The jokes about The Avengers and the fictional world where they live are today all over the internet, providing fans with an endless stream of humor. Taking into account, the unprecedented success of Avengers: Infinity War and the hype surrounding the 2019’s Avengers 4, we are sure that the flood of Avengers memes is not going to recede in the days to come. As an homage to the unknown, but, talented meme makers who made millions laugh, we present some of the funniest Avengers memes online.
