On May 1st, the Avengers returned in Avengers: Age of Ultron. We were so excited by it that we’ve decided to compile a list of the best characters that appeared in the blockbuster sequel and their Pop! Vinyl Figures! Because nothing says fun like Pop! Vinyls of Marvel characters.
10. Quicksilver/Pietro Maximoff
Quicksilver is a victim of human experimentation that results in his ability to run faster than the Avengers, or anyone for that matter. This is evident when he speeds up to punch Captain America in the trailer and gets away. Quicksilver is the twin sibling of Scarlet Witch. He witnessed his parents’ deaths, and is eager for vengeance.
9. Scarlet Witch/Wanda Maximoff
Scarlet Witch, like her brother, is another victim of human experimentation that resulted in her being able to control minds and create psychic energy blasts. She joins her brother in their journey for vengeance. Ultron uses Scarlet Witch to help tear apart the Avengers from the inside out, including controlling the Hulk.
Her Pop! Vinyl shows off her red color scheme and mind control powers.
8. Hawkeye/Clint Barton
Hawkeye is an expert archer who has fought with Black Widow in the past. In fact, he saved Black Widow from her former life, and helped her join S.H.I.E.L.D. Now that S.H.I.E.L.D. is no more, Hawkeye fights with the Avengers to protect the world from those who seek to hurt innocent people. Hawkeye helped defeat the Chitauri in The Avengers, but in Avengers: Age of Ultron he must help fight an army of robots, Quicksilver, and Scarlet Witch.
Clint’s Pop! Vinyl shows off his bow that he uses to shoot down robots.
7. Nick Fury
Nick Fury is a keen ally for the Avengers who offers experience and leadership. He helped unite the Avengers after the death of Agent Coulson in The Avengers. While the former S.H.I.E.L.D. director has been in hiding since The Winter Soldier, he reappears in Age of Ultron to help the Avengers once again.
6. Black Widow/Natasha Romanoff
Black Widow is skilled at hand-to-hand combat, shooting guns, and deceiving people. She helped save Hawkeye from Loki’s mind control, and tricked Loki into revealing part of his plan in The Avengers which shows her skills.
Black Widow also assisted Captain America in destroying S.H.I.E.L.D. (HYDRA) in The Winter Soldier. In this new installment, Black Widow must confront her dark past while helping the Avengers face their greatest threat yet.
The Black Widow is fierce as a Pop! Vinyl, wielding her electric batons to help save the earth.
5. Thor Odinson
The Mighty Avenger has fought Loki, Malekith, Iron Man, Captain America, and Hulk. At the end of Thor: The Dark World, Thor decided to remain on earth with Jane, the woman he loves. He is willing to fight to protect Earth at any cost. He’s one of the most powerful Avengers so his strength and heart are necessities in the fight against Ultron.
With the power of Mjolnir, this Might Avengers makes for an incredible Pop! Vinyl.
Ultron, an eight foot tall robot, is created by Tony Stark and Bruce Banner. Unfortunately, Ultron decides that the only way to save the world is to exterminate the Avengers and all of humanity. He is able to build copies of himself, and forms an army. He convinces Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch to join him in his quest and he’s one of the most formidable antagonists our heroes have faced.
The Pop! Vinyl inspired by the villainous robot is silver and red.
3. Hulk/Bruce Banner
The Hulk is the alter ego of Bruce Banner, unleashed when he’s angry. Hulk is known for his strength, agility, and incredible skill at smashing. So when Scarlet Witch forces him to fight his fellow Avengers, it’s terrifying. However, that same strength will be an asset to the Avengers when fighting Ultron, who he helped build.
Hulk Pop! Vinyl smash!
2. Captain America/Steve Rogers
Captain America is the leader of the Avengers. He uses his strategic insights to guide them in their various battles. As Steve Rogers, he’s the most selfless Avenger, willing to die to protect people. Now, he has to lead the Avengers into battle against Ultron.
The leader of the Avengers stands proud as a Pop! Vinyl.
1. Iron Man/Tony Stark
Tony Stark is known for being a billionaire, playboy, and philanthropist. Stark used to make weapons for anyone that would buy them until terrorists used his weapons against him. Now, he uses his suits to protect people from terrorists.
In The Avengers, Iron Man helped defeat the Chitauri and diverted a nuclear bomb from New York. After S.H.I.E.L.D. was destroyed, Tony became the financier for the Avengers. Now, after creating Ultron, Tony must confront his creation and destroy it.
The Iron Man Pop! Vinyl blasts off to fight Hulk and Ultron.
