Top Five Avengers Chairpersons

The Avengers did not always treat the idea of a chairperson as a major thing, and in fact, for the first 100 or so issues, they not only rotated chairpersons, they did not even always say who WAS the chairperson! So you could theoretically argue that any number of Avengers were chairpersons during the early years, but for the sake of this list, I am just listing the top five Avengers who were specifically noted as being chairpersons. Without further ado, here are the Avengers who have been chairperson of the Avengers (counting both branches) the most issues!


4. Iron Man
Iron Man only edges out Black Widow because I’m counting him as at least CO-chairperson during the early New Avengers issues. That’s fair, right?

He certainly SEEMED to be leading the team.

Currently, as head of SHIELD, he is the technical “head” of the Mighty Avengers, but I think Ms. Marvel is more of what you would consider the chairperson of the group.
