#ComicBytes: Five Avengers without superpowers
Written byShuvrajit Das Biswas
The Avengers is one of the most renowned superhero teams in Marvel, comprising of several immensely powerful members.
Recently in 'Infinity War', they assembled to take on the mad Titan, Thanos.
However, not all members of the Avengers have superpowers, some are just heroic men and women aided by skills and cutting-edge technology.
Here are the five Avengers who don't have superpowers.
Beware the spider and her bite
Black Widow or Natasha is a trained Russian spy who is a part of the Avengers.
She uses charged gauntlets, called the 'Widow's Bite'.
Apart from that, she is just a skilled combatant, thanks to intense training and experience.
She is adept with various weapons.
Despite not having superpowers, she has constantly fought with the Avengers against catastrophic events like Loki's spearheaded alien invasion.
The unerring arrows from a distance
Hawkeye or Clint Barton is unerring with a bow and arrow.
A skilled combatant, he claims to see better from a distance.
He was orphaned at a young age and received his training at Carson Carnival of Traveling Wonders.
A skilled marksman, martial artist, swordsman and pilot, Clint fought in the major wars and hopefully will take on Thanos in the upcoming movie.
Sorcerer of death's construction
James Rhodes or War Machine is a military man so one can expect that he has basic combat skills.
However, apart from that, he is no different than a normal human. Yet, armed with Tony Stark's tech, he becomes the War Machine.
A suit packed with firepower to stop a small army, this hero puts on the metal armor to stop catastrophic events.
Scott Lang and the underground army
A notable Avenger missing from 'Infinity War' was Ant-Man, who as we saw in 'Ant-Man and the Wasp' was trapped in the quantum realm.
Scott Lang's Ant-Man is an ordinary human who underwent combat training before he became a superhero!
He derives power from his suit which lets him shrink and grow in size besides being able to enlist the help of ants.
He was turned to steel, in the great magnetic field
Tony Stark was a billionaire playboy before a series of unfortunate incidents made him put on the Iron Man suit.
Completely unskilled, he regularly undergoes combat training. His power comes from the suit's cutting edge technology.
As we have seen in films, he can take on immensely powerful Avengers like Hulk, Thor, and 'Infinity War' saw him go toe to toe with Thanos.
