    Marvel's Trinity = X-Men, Avengers and FF.

    Yeah, the Trinity are the Trinity because they're DC's oldest heroes. Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman all maintained continuous publication and didn't end up cancelled, ever. Timely's Trinity was Human Torch, Submariner, and Captain America, but they did get cancelled and rarely appeared in the 1950s.

    Does Marvel even need a trinity? I thought Spider-Man pretty much represents it all by himself pretty darned good.

    Currently looking for a pull list... Does near-mint West Coast Avengers count?

    I think prior to the Avengers getting big Spider-Man, Hulk and Wolverine were probably as close to a trinity as marvel was going to get.

    But you can make an arguement that Cap, Iron Man and Thor are a trinity of sorts now. They previously were the Avengers big 3, but the Avengers have sort of moved to the forefront of marvel.

    But marvel doesn't put all their eggs in one basket quite to the degree that DC does, so there's probably no group quite as defined as the DC trinity on marvel.

    Forget about the power armor. The leader of that team was Hank Pym. Think about that. Hank Pym was leader of that team. It was truly a different era.

    Their in verse big three are Cap IM and Thor.

    From a corporate branding it is probably Spidey, Wolverine, and IM or Hulk.

    Hank led an Avengers team as recently as Dark Reign - a decade after that cartoon. He was actually the Wasp at the time (Janet was believed to be deceased, and Nadia not yet introduced), and the team was the Mighty Avengers.

    "Trinity" is just an artificial label to push importance. You could make a solid argument that DC Trinity is Flash, Batman and Superman. And while you are arguing about that we can ask the number 3 and not 4. Why isn't the Big 4 ? Trinity is just clevering marketing to add importance to a trio of characters who have financial importance to DC.

    Does Marvel need a Trinity ? No but I wouldn't mind seeing a push of Black Panther, Captain Marvel and Nova. 2 out of 3 are already being pushed and have a movie. Nova(Rider) is character type like Captain Marvel and Black Panther who were B level properties that could easily be an A level property with some focus.

    I think DC's "Big 7" is far more accurate...

    except that they keep including Martian Manhunter or Cyborg in the list. Neither of them are that important or iconic.

    Why does #1 need to match #2?

    Also why do people include Captain Marvel in anything. At least wait till her movie drops so she actually gets her surge in popularity and pop culture status. Right now she isn't even top 10 at Marvel

    I post via my phone a lot, therefore I make the occasional grammatical error. Not an excuse just forewarning you. Feel free to call me out I won't mind.

    It was the 90s? The writing was at least somewhat faithful to Avengers lore, even if it was Hank leading the team.
