Just going to say I would never trust ranker.com information of anything except the voting they collect. Of course, they run the votes though some arcane algorithm so...


    Quote:
    Captain America a.k.a. Nomad, The Captain
    Steven Rogers



    Quote:
    -wasn't it confirmed by Stern/Byrne that it was officially just "STEVE"?

Yeah. What Rev said.


    Quote:
    Black Widow (Claire Voyant)
    Natalia Alianovna Romanova (a.k.a. Natasha Romanoff)



    Quote:
    -wow, that's just embarrassing. She never used the Golden Age name even as an alias, afaik.

Yes, never Claire Voyant. Totally different character.


    Quote:
    Mantis
    Mandy Celestine (alias)



    Quote:
    -"CELESTINE"? Never happened, right? Ya'd think since we learned Duquesne's name that we'd have learned her full family name by now. Sheesh.

Does it ever really matter to anything? The character as she exists now may as well not have any human past whatsoever. And maybe she could change her name to This One.


    Quote:
    Moondragon
    Heather Douglas (a.k.a. H.D. Steckley)



    Quote:
    -remind me what issue she went by "STECKLEY"?

Early Quasar. Sorry can't be more precise.


    Quote:
    Sersi
    Circe (a.k.a. Sylvia Sersi)



    Quote:
    -remind me what issue she went by "SYLVIA"?

Mid-80s (circa Avengers #250), the name that the public knew her as was Sylvia Sersi.


    Quote:
    Captain Britain a.k.a. Lionheart
    Kelsey Leigh Shorr



    Quote:
    -wow, that's just embarrassing too. Her file photo is of Brian. Other wrong photo matches are bad too but this is wrong gender!

Yeah. Ranker does this sort of thing a lot. For some movies, they will rank a remake, but list the actors from the original (or vice versa).


    Quote:
    Ares
    Ares (a.k.a. John Aaron)



    Quote:
    -remind me what issue she went by "JOHN AARON"?

It's the alias he used when he was raising Alexander. The Ares mini and for a good piece of his Avengers career.


    Quote:
    Magdalene
    Marissa Darrow



    Quote:
    -is Magdalene her realname or codename?

The $64k question. Popular theory is that she is the alt-universe Marissa Darrow.


    Quote:
    Deathcry
    unrevealed



    Quote:
    -bring back Sharra Neramani! It'd be so easy after Chaos War aftermath.

Meh. No birds, kthx.
