Ask any 6-year old boy about Star Wars, and he's very likely to be well aware who Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Jar Jar Binks, R2D2, General Grievous and Darth Maul are.
Lol, if the boy knows who Jar Jar Binks and General Grievous are, then it's BIG edge to The Avengers.
Seriously though, I'll concede that SW has a stronger brand among kids, but I'd still say it's at least a SLIGHT edge to Avengers.
