In an unsurprising result, folks are still enamored with Iron Man, with Downey snatching 37% of the overall vote. Evans' Captain America came in second at 19%, with Hemsworth on his heels as Thor with 17%.
CBM's poll

This one was done by some SEO group:

With a search volume index of 1.32 The Hulk had more interest than Iron Man (.94) and Thor (1.0) who battled it out for the second most popular Avenger. Captain America had an index of (.48) and Loki (We included Loki, so that he does not get mad at us) had an index of (.24). Captain America and Thor did have spikes in search volume as their individual Marvel Movies came out earlier in 2011. The brand name “Avengers” was the most popular over the past 30 days with an index of (6.3) and lead in news mentions and social media.
