What Superheroes Would Jason Mewes Assemble For The Avengers?

- What would you do if you could assemble your very own Avengers Initiative? Better yet, what would Jason Mewes do?
Best known as Jay of Jay and Silent Bob fame, Mewes sat down with us while promoting his new movie, Madness in the Method, which he both stars in and directed. Now that Mewes is a full-fledged filmmaker who's been in charge of his own production, we decided to step things up a notch and ask him what he'd do with more magnificent responsibilities.
To be specific, we asked the lifelong comic book fan what he would do if he were in the Nick Fury role and had the opportunity to recruit his own team of Avengers from Marvel Comics' vast pool of characters.
And we're not just talking about good guys, either. Villains switch sides in comics all the time, sometimes for weird reasons. Why wouldn't they do the same for a foul-mouthed stoner from New Jersey who's bold enough to wield a bong-saber and brave enough to unload a machine gun at a nigh-unkillable angel?
For one, Mewes has been a comic book fan all his life, an affinity that's been reflected in Kevin Smith's movies and the characters they play in them. The drug-addled duo has appeared in both Smith's movies and real-life comic books as their superhero alter egos Bluntman and Chronic. They've also met and worked with Marvel Comics icon Stan Lee on multiple occasions — with Lee having a cameo in Smith's Mallrats, and another cameo, decades later, in Mewes' Madness in the Method. These aren't just hat-tips to the nerd crowd; Mewes has an enthusiasm for comic books that's downright infectious, and as an actor, he's even made appearances in the CW's Arrowverse.
"Get some free comics, read the comics, love and sniff the comics."
So now that you know his bona fides, the question remains: What would Jason Mewes' team of Avengers look like?
Though the Avengers' roster has grown post-Endgame to include what feels like hundreds of people from all around the universe — including sorcerers, Asgardians, and even Howard the Duck — the first Avengers movie showed the promise of the shared Marvel universe with just six heroes. So, we'll go with six.
Like many would, Mewes started off his selection with three major powerhouses: the incredible Hulk, the adamantium-infused mutant Wolverine, and the immensely-overpowered Spider-Man. But after that, things got interesting. Keep watching the video to see what superheroes would Jason Mewes assemble for The Avengers.
