Hawkeye and Black Widow are way weaker than the others.
True, I meant that Iron Man, Thor and Captain America seemed equally strong despite their powers coming from very different sources.
Hardly.
Thor looked like he could squash Iron Man without too much trouble, if he was really into it. Cap didn't look like he would end up winning against him either.
Now Cap vs IM that would be a more equal fight.

Thor explaining the facts of life to Iron Fascist.

[Note: Movie Tony seems to be a very different critter (so far) than Comic Tony has become.]

Agreed. Here is how I'd rank the Avengers:

The Hulk > Thor > Iron Man > Captain America > Black Widow > Hawkeye

Shouldn't the plural of ultimatum be ultimata?

^^^No, English plurals are formed by adding -s or -es. Hence, ultimatums or octopuses, not ultimata nor octopi.
And English Rules, so that once a loan word, forever English!

^^^Fungi is technical jargon. And it may be scary to hear but I have indeed heard cactuses. Criteria is indeed the common plural, but does it count as a genuine exception? Or is it technical jargon too?

In any event, the -s/-es plural rule has exceptions, as all children know.

I'm not sure when it was finally decided, but no Latin or Greek grammatical rules are now held to apply to English. Also, common usage is privileged.

It varies. There are some that aren't even really Latin. The plural of Octopus shouldn't be Octopi because the Latin is borrowed from the Greek Octopous so the plural should be Octopodes.

Just a nice little heads-up. Tomorrow "Rifftrax" will release their riff on "The Avengers." Their other MCU riffs have been good (they've not done TIH or IM2, however) so I look forward to this one. Word from the cast seems to be they've spent a lot of time and work on this one.

If they thought that quote on the image was a fair representation of their own work... they must have the easiest job in the world.

MST3K. Concept: make fun of bad movies. Make Sense: does.

Rifftrax. Concept: make fun of good movies. Make Sense: not so much.

They still make fun of bad movies, though. But they also get plenty of blockbuster requests. Anyway, the full RT on Avengers is pretty decent, a lot of jokes making fun of Hawkeye's "usefulness" as part of the team. Other riffs they've done on good movies have been good, the riffing concept doesn't always have to be for bad movies.

Full "sample" here: LINK

I wouldn't say it's one of their best blockbuster efforts, or even the best of the MCU movies they've riffed on, but it's still pretty fun to watch movies with these guys. $4 is worth it for that.
