5 Avengers we miss

Remember the time Captain America called ALL the Avengers to assemble?
Presenting 5 Avengers that we've come to sorely miss in the comic books.

By out last count there were 126 individuals who have served as Avengers in various teams since the group's founding in 1963. Come to think of it, that's actually not a lot. It comes down to 2.4 Avenger characters for every year that the various Avengers titles have been in publication.

But since the active team roster of Earth's mightiest heroes is normally kept at 5 or 6 Avengers at a time, that means that there definitely is a lot of heroes that have disappeared over the years - even with multiple teams being active at any particular time.

Here's a list of Avengers that we wish would return to the active roster.

Maketoys Striker Manus - Optimus Prime

Optimus Prime
Maketoys Striker Manus
Presenting Striker Manus, a 3rd party version of Optimus Prime from Maketoys.

His official designation is the Maketoys Cros Dimention Striker Manus MTCD-01.

Maketoys was kind enough to provide a backstory for him.

Basically Manus begins as just plain Manus - who looks just like a regular G1 Optimus Prime and was recently awarded the Rubicon (Autobot Matrix of Ledership).

In a battle on the planet Sybernomica (Cybertron) with  Despotron (Megatron), leader of an un-named group of "shifters" (Transformers) who are out to overthrow the council, Despotron is able to distract Manus enough to punch through his back and grab the Rubicon (Quite a disconcerting image). Despite having a gaping hole in his chest, Manus continues to battle Despotron, it explodes. The energy washes over Manus, everything fades to white and he wakes up alone, rebuilt in a new form (Striker Manus) in an unfamiliar environment.
