Infobox art[edit]

The reason why I replaced the cover artwork for the SNES version of Captain America with the international flier for the arcade version is because Captain America and the Avengers was an arcade game first, and an SNES game later. Its the same reason we don't replace movie posters for theatrical films in favor of home video covers.

Also, the SNES version was not even developed by Data East themselves, but it was licensed to Mindscape and developed by Real Time. If some editor is going to insist on using a cover art for a console version, at least use the Genesis version, which came first and was actually developed internally by Data East.

NES[edit]

NES version was a lot better... Maybe someone know, what enemy's bosses are here, and playable for 2 Player? Bulbman is Wizard (I think), Mummy is Ultron (I think), but who is that Strongman? Unplayable bosses are Mandarin and Red Skull. It would be nice, if someone can add these informations to article. 89.77.94.33 (talk) 03:15, 9 February 2010 (UTC)

Well, he was called "Crossbones" in the game. But I have no idea who he is. I read the article here, but I am not sure are they the same character —Preceding unsigned comment added by 89.189.191.153 (talk) 16:03, 23 February 2010 (UTC)

Captain America and the AvengersCaptain America and The Avengers — "The" should be capitalized: "The Avengers" is a proper noun. Relisted. Arbitrarily0 (talk) 14:21, 15 October 2010 (UTC) Hornpipe2 (talk) 16:23, 6 October 2010 (UTC)

  • Support - even though it jars to capitalise the definite article like that, it does appear to be the "correct" title, based on these sources: [1] [2].  — Amakuru (talk) 19:34, 6 October 2010 (UTC)
  • Oppose - WP:MOSTM has more; as you say it is jarring to see it wrong like that. ErikHaugen (talk) 07:35, 14 October 2010 (UTC)
    • That guideline says nothing about the definite article, so far as I can see. PC78 (talk) 18:48, 15 October 2010 (UTC)
      • Pardon, my point in bringing WP:MOSTM up is that it says "choose the style that most closely resembles standard English, regardless of the preference of the trademark owner"; ie, if a trademark owner likes to capitalize the in the middle of a title just for fun then that does not mean the Wikipedia article should capitalize it in the title. WP:CAPS would be the guideline talking about definite articles in titles. Now, also see Wikipedia:THE#Names_of_bands_and_groups - I think the is actually not part of the title of this group, see Avengers - ie, Avengers is more like the Eurythmics not like The Beatles. Otherwise I would agree with you. ErikHaugen (talk) 20:48, 15 October 2010 (UTC)
        • If you look at the actual comic book covers at Avengers (comics) you can see that "The" explicitly is part of the title, i.e. The Avengers is like The Beatles, not Eurythmics. PC78 (talk) 22:30, 15 October 2010 (UTC)
          • Sure - they put a The on the cover, but if it was an essential part of the title how can you explain the marvel website Avengers? ErikHaugen (talk) 23:29, 15 October 2010 (UTC)
            • The comics books are the primary source, not the website. PC78 (talk) 00:06, 16 October 2010 (UTC)
              • I'm not sure why that matters; in any case I think it makes sense to consider what the creators say the name of the group is. ErikHaugen (talk) 08:04, 16 October 2010 (UTC)
                • They say so quite clearly on the cover of the comic books. PC78 (talk) 11:31, 17 October 2010 (UTC)
  • Support. Definite article is part of the title. Likewise it should be The Avengers (comics), not Avengers (comics). PC78 (talk) 18:48, 15 October 2010 (UTC)

Support as avenger fan I notice that they usually capitalize the T —Preceding unsigned comment added by JDDJS (talkcontribs) 02:23, 16 October 2010 (UTC)

  • Support per nom. --JaGatalk 12:38, 16 October 2010 (UTC)
