The whole point of "The Avengers" is that there are six of them. Few things are cooler than seeing Iron Man, Cap, Thor, Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye all on screen together, but there are certainly moments when they shine in pairs.
In the heat of battle, the group can get separated, but some of finest moments in "The Avengers" came when group broke off to form temporary dynamic duos.
So who was your favorite pair? Vote in the poll after the jump!
The Avengers have every right to leave this past weekend with their giant green fist held high in triumph. Marvel's superhero all-star team collected $200.3 million in the US box office debut, but the victory did not come without some loss.
Those who have seen "The Avengers" know by now that not every member of the team made it out alive. War is bloody and senseless, and the heroes of the Marvel universe aren't exempt from that.
We here at MTV News wanted to show our respects to the dearly departed with a respectful, soft fade-filled in memoriam video tribute. Check out our send-off after the jump!
MAJOR "AVENGERS" SPOILERS AHEAD!
One of the greatest accomplishments of "The Avengers" has to be that thrilling, extended final against Loki and his army. There is just so much going on, so many unforgettable moments, that we had to find out just how they pulled it off from the people behind the movie.
When MTV News spoke with Joss Whedon, he said that the final battle was the most challenging for him as a filmmaker. "The final battle is not small," he said, always a fan of the understatement. "It really was a task to make sure that everybody was working at their particular power level, and every now and then we had to adjust things because there are things that Cap can do Hawkeye can't, and Thor can do that Cap can't, and Hulk can do that Thor can't. You've just got to make sure that you stay true to their realities."
There is certainly no short of reading material on "The Avengers." (We aren't complaining.) There's so much, in fact, that we've rounded up some of the best from the past couple days in one very special, all-"Avengers" edition of Tights.
After the jump, you'll be able to learn about Clark Gregg's five favorite Marvel movie moments and who the hell that guy at the end of "Avengers" is.
"The Amazing Spider-Man" is in a bad way right now. With "The Avengers" hitting screens last night and "The Dark Knight Rises" poised to melt minds in July, the latest adventures of your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man has the highest mountain to climb of any of the superhero tent poles this year.
The combination Sam Raimi's trilogy still feeling fresh in the audience's memory and the so-so reception of the first person point-of-view in the teaser trailer immediately handicapped the reboot of Marvel's most recognizable hero.
But a new trailer over at iTunes shows off a bunch of new footage and more details about plot.
By now you're probably recovering from your midnight showing of the ultimate superhero event of the millennium, "The Avengers." Hopefully the coffee has started to kick in and you can finally process all of the awesome that you witnessed last night.
But what did you think? Did seeing Iron Man, Captain America, the Hulk and Thor all together on the same screen do it for you? Was the Hulk everything that people hyped him up to be?
The majority of opinions out there for "The Avengers" certainly have been favoring the positive, lest Samuel L. Jackson lash out at you on Twitter. It seems like Joss Whedon and company have delivered on the hopes and dreams of every fanboy and fangirl out there.
Tom Hiddleston is certainly one of the best parts of "The Avengers," but have you ever asked yourself why he's so good as Loki, the god of mischief? It's because the man loves a good prank.
Unfortunately, he's terrible at them.
MTV News' Josh Horowitz found out the hard way in the newest episode of "After Hours." Hiddleston had originally stopped by for an interview, but wound up causing a series of minor inconveniences for Josh. Or as Hiddleston likes to say, he got "Loki'd."
Check out the brand new episode of "After Hours" with Tom Hiddleston above.
One of the biggest misgivings from fans looking forward to the "Amazing Spider-Man" has to do with a character's wardrobe choices. It may seem silly to some, but many fans of the wall crawler see Dr. Curt Connors' lab coat as essential as Spidey's red and blues.
Early promotional photos and trailers for the Marc Webb-helmed reboot clearly show a mostly nude Lizard, much to hardcore fans' dismay, but the latest official stills of Spider-Man's reptilian nemesis over at Apple have him donning his traditional white lab coat.

Few actors have really taken to playing a character as over-the-top as a super villain quite like Tom Hiddleston has to embodying Loki. The nemesis of the Avengers is the whole reason that the ultimate superhero team is able to come together, so all of us are really indebted to Hiddleston's dedication.
When we spoke with Hiddleston at the Tribeca Film Festival, you could see the cogs in his wonderfully British head already turning. This man loves to play Loki, and he's eager to keep playing him.
Having signed on to "Thor 2" eons ago, it's no secret that Loki will see another day beyond the conclusion of "The Avengers." But where does one go after taking on a team of Earth's Mightiest Heroes and jeopardizing the fate of the human race?
Hiddleston's answer? Even lower.
Thor may not get as much screen time as the rest of his "Avengers" co-stars, but by the end of the movie, he's likely the character you'll want to see more from.
With Tom Hiddleston already signed on to reprise his role as Loki in "Thor 2," Chris Hemsworth will have enough trouble on his hands when he gets back to doing standalone movies next year. The endings of "Thor" and "The Avengers" arguably leave more things unsettled for the Norse god than any other of the heroes.
That's why we were so eager to talk with Hemsworth at the closing night festivities of the Tribeca Film Festival. Two things about the "Thor" sequel have us and Hemsworth particularly excited. (1) Alan Taylor, co-creator and director of "Game of Thrones" is replacing Kenneth Branaugh, and (2) the movie is said to explore realms other than Asgard and Earth. Hemsworth seemed genuinely thrilled to see Taylor come aboard to helm.
