    Default VH as "The Avengers"

    Reading that Wolfgang interview with Esquire and the way he's sort taken over the reins of the band and inspired them somehow made my brain compare him to....

    Captain America.

    Yes....I saw the Avengers movie twice last weekend and can't stop thinking about it. ...Very geeky.

    So I thought I would match up every member of the band with one of the Avengers for fun. There are so many ways to do it...here is mine.

    Wolf-Captain America. Not quite larger than life and as powerful as other members but he inspires and leads the rest of the group to great glory and victory.

    Eddie-Thor. Eddie is a god. Flashy (lightning) but powerful. His smile can melt the hearts of the girls. He carries a mighty weapon that strikes fear into those who would do battle with him.

    Dave-Iron Man. Charismatic. Wants all the attention. Good looking and he knows it. Hard outer shell that may just be hiding a vulnerable heart.

    Alex-Hulk. The power. Hits really hard. Doesn't talk much. Has been known to fight with Thor/Eddie but sticks with him.

    Mike is Agent Phil Coulson ( a class act)
    Sammy would be Hawkeye (someone who is usually spot on with his aim, but makes mistakes sometimes)
    Gary would be Jarvis (does what he is told)
    Ray Daniels is Loki

    and finally:

    Jimmy Iovine as Nick Fury (the man who gets the team together for the good of everyone)

    Or those who dislike Hagar could say he could be LOKI.
    Eddie's (who is Thor) "brother" who turns against him for his own personal wealth and power.

    I'd do it a little differently, myself:

    Wolfgang: Yep, he's Captain America. Definitely the leader.

    Eddie: Iron Man. He's the weird-ass genius who tinkers and builds his own shit. Also has daddy issues a bit and his dad was a similar kind of guy (musician).

    Alex: The Hulk. If you've seen the tour, you know.

    Dave: The blonde god. Thor.
    Hit the ground running...

    We came through blood and fire...

    "I aim to misbehave." - Captain Malcolm Reynolds: Firefly

    Proud fan of BOTH major eras of Van Halen. Yes, we do exist.

    "Men never commit evil so fully and joyfuly as when they do it for religious convictions"-- Blaise Pascal (1623-1662)

    The Sass Jordan version of Van Halen was the best...

    Wolf = Captain America
    Eddie = Thor
    Alex = Hulk
    Dave = Iron Man

    vs.

    Satch = Baron Von Strucker (HYDRA Founder)




    Michael Anthony = The Abomination



    Sammy = Iron Patriot/Norman Osborn




    Chad Smith = Electro

    Good choices, but I think in many classic VH fan's eyes Sam would be a cross between Iron Patriot and probably Thanos, the most evil dick in the Marvel U.



    Mike is clearly Marvel Comic's Banshee.



    Satch is well represented with your choice, I think. )

    Of course, we could just label Chickenfoot generally as The Great Beasts:

    Sorry guys but you're all way off...VH and its former members are far more like the seventies' BBC children's TV characters, The Wombles:



    Wolf: Great Uncle Bulgaria, the Wombles' leader;
    Ed: Wellington, the mad scientist / genius /inventor;
    Al: Tobermory, the womble who's 'good with his hands';
    Dave: Tomsk, the athletic womble;

    Mike: Madame Cholet, likes her food;
    Sam: Bungo, terribly over-enthusiastic and somewhat bossy.

    I rest my case.
    I'm FEMALE...Deal with it!

    "Whatever you do, wherever you go, there you are..." Edward Van Halen 1986

    "You spend the first part of your life trying to make your mark, and the second part just trying to cover up your tracks"... Weesfreewheelin, 2012

    "Life's too short to stuff a mushroom"... Shirley Conran, 1975

    "You turn if you want to...The LADY is NOT for turning!"...Margaret
    Thatcher, 1980
