Which Avenger are These Kias?

Which Avenger Superhero would Various Kia Models Be?

Unless you’ve been hibernating on a distant planet or stuck on a deserted island, you’ve probably heard of “The Avengers” movie franchise. After a couple feature films and several tie-ins with Captain America, Thor and Iron Man movies, the Marvel Comics heroes are more bankable than Warren Buffet.

There’s a lot to love about that universe, with people flying around, cracking jokes, and saving the universe every so often. And with Marvel Studios already announcing a packed schedule of upcoming movies, it looks like these four-color heroes will be around and on our screens until we get sick of them.

Three of our favorite things about the Marvel super-hero movies so far:

  • The sense of humor. From Hawkeye and Iron Man trying to lift Thor’s hammer (in vain) in “The Avengers” sequel to Kat Dennings’ one-liners in the “Thor” movies to the ingenious use of pop songs in “Guardians of the Galaxy,” the sense that these movies are supposed to be fun is infectious.
  • The friendship of Rocket Raccoon and Groot in “Guardians of the Galaxy.” It was odd, but charming. Who would have imagined a talking raccoon and a tree getting along so well, and being so funny?
  • The elevator scene in “Captain America: Winter Soldier,” where the Captain asks this of a large group of men about to pick a fight with him: “Before we get started, does anybody want to get out?” It was bold, and it was perfect.

Which Avenger Superhero would Various Kia Models Be?

That got us thinking, as Kia-lovers, we often see heroic qualities in the available models. Now that we have superheroes on the brain, which Avengers do various Kias most resemble?

  • Optima = Captain America. The Optima is an elite car, with an adventurous yet down-to-earth sensibility, yet born to lead, like the Captain.
  • Forte = Black Widow. The Forte is a sporty, fast ride, with plenty of gadgets to keep you out of trouble. Sounds like the super-spy Black Widow to us.
  • Rio = Hawkeye. The Rio is a smaller, fun ride, with superior fuel economy. Much like Hawkeye, an underrated hero who’s as clutch as he is skilled.
  • Soul = Scarlet Witch. The Soul is a unique vehicle, with color and style that outdoes everything else on the road. We think it suits the enigmatic Scarlet Witch.
  • Sedona = Vision. The Sedona may be a little quiet at first, as it’s a minivan, but it is versatile, much like the Vision, who can either lift heavy objects or pass through them.
  • Sorento = Hulk. This SUV, which comes with up to 290 horses, was built to chew up the road and take no prisoners. Ditto the Hulk.
  • Cadenza = Iron Man. The Cadenza is a luxury car with all the tech you could imagine. Iron Man enjoys the finer things in life, and he’s always creating something techy.
  • Sportage = Thor. The Sportage is a compact SUV, and since Thor seems to be a little less powerful than the Hulk, we’ll put Thor, the second-strongest Avenger, in this slot.
  • Forte Koup = Quicksilver. The Forte Koup is a souped-up sedan. Quicksilver is the fastest Avenger, so it makes sense to compare him to this blazing model.
