This year the Marvel universe brought back the Avengers and their allies to the big screen, but even these dashing superheroes couldn’t protect themselves from puberty. You might remember seeing some of our favorite heroes endure their awkward years on screen - Scarlett Johansson in “Home Alone 3” anyone? While some of these other photos may shock you. We already showed you what the Avengers would look like according to the comics, but are you prepared to see Captain America with a bowl-cut and braces? or Hawkeye with a mullet? Bored Panda rounded-up of your favorite Avenger cast members before they were saving the planet. Check it out below and don't forget to up-vote your faves.
