It depends which idea of “Avenger” we’re dealing with.

In the comic books, a lot of characters have been part of the Avengers, some of whom have also appeared in Marvel’s Cinematic Universe, and some of whom are characters Marvel Studios doesn’t have the film rights to, like the X-Men and the Fantastic Four.

But movie canon is considered separate from the comic book universe and is its own complex beast. And going by movie canon, the only characters with official Avenger status heading into Infinity War are Iron Man, War Machine, and possibly Thor and Hulk.

But that wasn’t always the case.

The Avengers team was created in 2012’s The Avengers, when Nick Fury activated the Avengers Initiative because Loki, Thor’s brother, posed a worldwide threat. The main team then consisted of Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, the Hulk, Black Widow, and Hawkeye. This team got new additions in 2015’s Avengers: Age of Ultron: Scarlet Witch, Vision, Falcon, and War Machine. In that same movie, Thor leaves Earth and Iron Man goes into quasi-retirement.
