Time or another week of Guys we Google with Pix & NM. Up this week: The British Avengers
NM: I was asked at work who I would pick for a British Avengers. I said “British Avengers?!? OMG I need to talk to Pix about this STAT!”
Pix: Because Hi. We kinda like the Brits. We really should just name this column “British Guys We Google”.
But we knew about this:
Which is a good start but they missed a few. So we decided we needed to come up with our own picks for a UK Avengers team.
Also, not to be confused with…
Yes, yes, they have the same name (and they’re own brand of awesomeness) but srsly….
Captain Jack Harkness = Agent Coulson
If you think about it,Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is kind of American Torchwood. Secret-ish government agency with very little accountability to anyone, charged with investigating and defending Earth from The Weird Stuff. Also, both led by handsome men in suits that can’t seem to stay dead. (Never mind the fact that John Barrowman is only sort of British.We love him anyway)
DCI John Luther = Nick Fury
Every good team needs a good leader and granted Luther is more of a rogue character he would still make for a bad-ass leader for the group.
Ron, Harry, and Hermione = Hawkeye, Captain America, and Black Widow
Uhm..What do you call the British version of Captain America? Captain Britain? Lieutenant United Kingdom (pronounced left-tenant, of course)? You KNOW Emma Watson would make a kick ass Black Widow, though.
Mitchell = Hulk
Would he be as pretty all big and green and smashing up Big Ben and wearing the Eye as a collar? Probably.
Doctor Who = Thor
Face it, The Doctor has a bit of a God Complex, even if he works to use his powers for good. He might not rock the shirtless scenes as well as Chris Hemsworth, but if he keeps the bowtie, his alter ego can moonlight at Chippendales.
James Bond = Tony Stark/Ironman
Pepper Pots is even a pretty good Bond girl name. So we’re all set there. But only if we can see Black Widow/Hermione kick his ass once. At least. Please?
What do you think about our picks for the British Avengers?
