Re: Avengers a culmination of Marvel history (including 616/Ultimate/etc.)
-Captain America: Both versions are pretty similar, but the movies, like the 616 version use vita rays as part of the process to create super-soldiers.
-Thor: Nobody questions his otherworldly origins, the existence of Asgard, or his sanity.
-Iron Man: Injured and captured by terrorists. Creates a chest piece that keeps him alive and a suit of armor to escape.
-Black Widow: Again, both versions are very similar, with the whole "former Russian spy turned SHIELD agent and superhero". But unless she turns traitor in a sequel, so far it's closer to 616 history.
-Loki: Same reasons as Thor, I guess.
-Hawkeye: pretty much the same as the Ultimate version, basically a highly specialized SHIELD agent who joins the team.
-Nick Fury: Again, a direct translation from the Ultimate version.
-Hulk: Resulted from an attempt to recreate the super-soldier formula.
-Captain America: Not a jerk.
-Thor: lofty attitude, but without the constant political or social critique that the Ultimate version had during the first couple of volumes.
-Hulk: Not a horny cannibal. He smashes...that's it.
-Black Widow: Could easily go both ways, since both versions are so similar. But I'm putting here based on the obvious attraction she displayed towards hawkeye in the movie.
-Nick Fury: Smooth talker and badass. Not the gruff old warhorse he is in the 616 universe.
-Hawkeye: a few quips aside, he's definitely more serious and calculated than the 616 version. Although there is an underlying attraction to Black Widow which is definitely 616 based.
-Iron Man: Tony has historically been more serious in the 616 version, as opposed to the easy going attitude of the Ultimate and movie version.
Forget about Jumping the Shark, now you have: Pushing the Apokolips!
