With The Avengers coming out today in the U.S., artist Jer Thorp had a look at character appearances, of which there have been 127 since 1963.
We can see a big cluster of major Avengers appearing in the first few episodes, with some other big names coming in the next few years (Vision, the Avenger with the 3rd most appearances in issues, doesn’t come along until #57). While there are a couple of major additions along the way (She-Hulk & Photon in 1982), we can see that the cast of characters for the team is defined pretty early.

So, I stopped the list this year at 108 items. I probably could have added another 25+ items, but I am tired. I started the list back in April, so I spent 4 months on it. I am already thinking of a different way to format it for next year (perhaps even offering a PDF you can print with photos).
So, as of today, we have 108 San Diego Comic Con 2011 Exclusives listed with Photos.
Thanks to all of you who visited our site during Comic Con.
Uniting Hulk, Thor, Iron Man, Captain America and a Mighty Mugg scale Giant Man, Hasbro will offer a Special Edition Mini Muggs Collector’s Pack to fans at its HasbroToyShop.com booth (#3329) during SDCC.
The assembled team is priced at $34.99 and sports a domed box that plays off Giant Man’s comparatively deluxe scale as his head pops up from the center of the box. Provided the set doesn’t sell out at Comic-Con, extras may pop up on Hasbro’s online shop.
Monogram brings us a San Diego Comic-Con exclusive that sure to go very quickly… It’s their two all-new Marvel Miniature Alliance PVC figures: Red Hulk and Green Hulk. Each one stands 2.75 inches tall and packs the alter egos of both Bruce Banner and General Thaddeus E. “Thunderbolt” Ross. This is a limited edition set of 100 and will be priced at only $10.
