‘The Avengers’ on Spokeo

Written by May 10, 2012

The Avengers

Seven-hundred-and-forty-four-million, one-hundred-and-fourteen-thousand, eight-hundred-and-ninety-seven.

In case you’re wondering if I’ve gone crazy, that behemoth of a figure – 744,114,897 – is the number of dollars that The Avengers has made worldwide. That’s over half a billion dollars. Pretty crazy, huh?

While it’s probably not much of a surprise that The Avengers has been a smash hit, nobody could have predicted just how big it would be. Over half a billion dollars later, and director Joss Whedon‘s star-studded blockbuster is quickly becoming one of the highest-grossing films of all-time.

There’s no doubt about it: we love our super-heroes. We like seeing them use their super-powers to overcome adversity and beat the bad guys.We all have our faves. My own personal superhero is probably my mom (aww!); after that I’d have to go with Matter-Eater Lad, a little-known superhero from the DC universe who possesses the incredible ability to eat everything – rocks, trees, space monsters. I find them both to be  inspirations in their own way.
