Avengers: Age of Ultron sees the gang reunite to fight Tony Stark's rogue robot. If you could have a couple of Avengers along for your stag do, who would make the cut?
Richer than Croesus, witty, a big hit with the ladies, and with an IQ higher than the Empire State building, Tony Stark is a tricky one. You'd certainly get one hell of a stag do! Casino, lap dancing, a feast fit for a king, rivers of booze, and probably a helicopter tour in Vegas, just because you can. Hang on a minute though. Iron Man might know how to party but he also loves to be the centre of attention. Up for sharing the limelight?
Fiercely loyal, incredibly strong and powerful, Asgard's God of Thunder should be a shoe-in for a stag do. But he does have a pesky habit of asking questions like:'Is that all you've got?' which can put you in a spot of bother. However, his presence would mean you'd probably get to do all sorts of cool shizzle, like axe throwing.
The ultimate wild card. Easygoing Bruce Banner is a sh*t hot scientist and probably knows plenty about hangover cures. But if someone spills his pint on a bar crawl, you could be in for the kind of trouble that involves wailing sirens, tanks and machine gun shooting. Proceed with caution!
He might be a bit of a goody two-shoes, but Captain America is good at rallying the Avengers when they're outmatched, outgunned and their egos have taken a bit of a beating. Team spirit is always handy on a stag do.
Bit controversial this one, as it raises the question of whether or not it's cool to have a lady on your stag do. What say you? Does the gorgeous, ass-kicking, gun-toting, Black Widow get a pass?
The dude with the bow and arrow. Meh. He was Loki's bitch in the first Avengers film but the folks at Marvel tell us he's'fully functional' and returns with'more advanced weaponry.' He'd be a good Avenger to have on your stag do if you're up for trying something fun, like exploding archery.
A new addition to the Avengers team, Quicksilver's power is super speed. Always handy on a stag do. Might be a bit annoying on the karting track though.
Ok, so he might be hell-bent on the destruction of the human race but he will stop at nothing until he achieves a goal. Bit like the Terminator, only with more ambition. You've got to admire that sort of dedication!
