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

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.
