Thanks to a script that emphasizes its heroes’ humanity and a wealth of superpowered set pieces, The Avengers lives up to its hype and raises the bar for Marvel at the movies.

It’s always fascinating to see people’s childhood photos because certain features and characteristics remain a part of their look and identity for the rest of their lives. Even at these young ages, certain facial features and expressions are instantly recognizable today.

These photos of the Avengers characters when they were younger are brilliant. You can still see each one shining though. Especially the eyes.
