I just found a site from May 2015 with a survey of the most popular 100 Avengers. Pretty disapointed that a lot of these are guys I don't even consider to be Avengers (a Doombot included), but also happy D-man nearly made the midway point. I wonder who didn't make the cut. Here are the top seven, with two surprises:

7 Black Panther
6 Black Widow
5 Hawkeye
4 Ironman
3 Thor
2 Captain Marvel
1 Captain America

I had no idea BP and CM were that popular, beating Wolverine, Spiderman, Hulk, Vision, Scarlet Witch, etc, etc. Would this be a team worth seeing? It's not likely we will, unless we can swap in the new Cap and Thor, but I think that would be a good team too.

I wouldn't agree with Black Panther being in the top 10, his Avengers membership is very sporadic and I don't see him as being more popular in the team that Scarlet Witch and The Beast for example. The Beast had a relatively short time on the team compared others but to my mind he was more popular and successful therein than the Panther.
The same applies to Captain Marvel, who i assume is Monica Rambeu here, she had a relatively short time with the team, but unlike others made a great impression and is fondly remembered.

So for a top 10 the big three are automatically in - Captain America, Thor and Iron Man. After that it is quite fluid and fully open to interpretation, but I would hold up Hawkeye, Scarlet Witch, The Vision, Luke Cage, Black Widow and The Wasp as likely to be the favourites, and after that the likes of The Beast, Ms. Marvel/Carol Danvers, Black Knight, Captain Marvel/Monica, and Hercules.
As I say though a lot of it will be down to personal favourites rather than actual contributions to the team...
