Current Situation: Though he once retired from active superhero duty, Tony Stark is currently the leader of the official team of Avengers, following the internal conflict that split the gang over the Sokovia Accords. He’s also recently taken Peter Parker under his wing, designing tech for the teenage hero and inviting him to join the Avengers. When it comes to his personal life, Tony and Pepper Potts have reconciled after they took a brief break back in 2016. In fact, the very last scene we saw him in, Tony was potentially about to propose to Pepper in front of a press conference.

Current Situation: He used to be the beloved public face of the Avengers, but Steve Rogers’ anti-authoritarian stance on the enforcement of the Sokovia Accords turned his life around. He and his team were last seen going underground after escaping from the Raft prison facility. However, they’ve not given up being heroes. In a nod to the Secret Avengers from the comics, Steve and his allies have been undertaking covert missions that allow them to help people without being detected. Most notably, Rogers has abandoned his Captain America mantle.
