    If The Avengers Looked Like They Originally Did In The Comics

    Tacky costumes, assemble!

    Tony Stark/Iron Man

    Walt Disney Studios / BuzzFeed

    Robert Downey Jr was the perfect choice to play the billionaire turned superhero Tony Stark, even if he did have a goatee instead of a pencil-thin moustache.

    Steve Rogers/Captain America

    Walt Disney Studios / BuzzFeed

    Modern-day Captain America is a little toned down on the red, white, and blue. The super soldier is also distinctively less blonde than he's appeared in the past.

    Dr Bruce Banner/Hulk

    Walt Disney Studios / BuzzFeed

    The technology of CGI rendered a realistic, if somewhat faded, looking Hulk for the movies. The character looks a lot less cartoony than he once did, which is mostly a good thing.

    Thor

    Another victim to his clothes fading in the wash. Over the years all of The Avengers have received style upgrades to their crime-fighting outfits, and part of that has involved muting the colours.

    Natasha Romanoff / Black Widow

    Walt Disney Studios / BuzzFeed

    The Black Widow has received one of the biggest image overhauls over the years. She no longer looks like someone who's dressed up last-minute for Halloween.

    Clint Barton/Hawkeye

    Walt Disney Studios / BuzzFeed

    Today's Hawkeye barely resembles the original character from his first comic appearance. Gone are the cheap-looking mask and overuse of purple, and it's definitely for the best.

    Bonus: Loki

    Let's be honest, no one's going to question any aspect of Tom Hiddleston's performance as Loki. Bright gold horns would look pretty cool though.
