The Avengers is a non-profit superhero group that was founded in New York City. Their motto: To avenge those that cannot avenge themselves. They are protectors of citizens in times of crisis and with quick fists of justice when injustice is witnessed.
A chairman is appointed by popular vote of the active members. It is the chairman’s responsibility to make use of the members’ special abilities and talents and to assign them to duties, such as training, liaison representation, and so on. The chairman can be removed from office by popular vote. A chairman’s power is to handle the practical needs of the team, including internal disputes.
A field leader is also appointed by popular vote, and can be removed from office in the same manner. When they are in a battle with other Avengers, they are to automatically assume leadership unless they actively appoint a temporary field leader for special situations/cases. The field leader is also to encourage and manage training.
It is suggested that chairman and field leader be different individuals.

Avenger Holo-ID Card
These are very similar to the Holo-Data Pad, just more minimized and with the ID on the front, while the back comes unlocked to reveal the interactive controls. It is also more resistant to damage as more expensive components are used within them. At first they appear like a thick ID Card, with an image of the Avenger in question in costume on the front, along with their codename, blood type, date of their original membership and their status: 'Active', 'Reserve', or 'Inactive'. In the lower right hand corner is a few small speaker holes that is actually have surprisingly powerful and clear sounds/voices come through when in use.
On the back is a finger print and key button system to unlock the device. When unlocked, it turns into an interactive system.
Like a Transformer (soooo coool), it transforms, flipping the ID cover toward the back and revealing a very thin PDA system that can scan, in which the scans can in turn can be displayed in the 3-D images that the device can produce, and an interactive holo-keyboard to produce Avenger board postings, e-mails, cell text messages and type up documents. Other apps can be downloaded to be more diverse. Furthermore, it can be used as a communicator, and even display facial images of the speaker, just as it can do in kind of the user chooses to have his face continually scanned and sent over the secure network. The Holo-ID Card is very useful in displaying impromptu tactics, the apps usually already downloaded for such in the PDA. Finally, the main screen one can activate a 'holo-touch screen', which is useful in building tactic layouts, editing an engineering piece of equipment and so on.

The Avengers have a large database on past mission activities, research materials, supervillains, supervillain organizations, and aliens all on their own.
To supplement this database, they agreed to share data on supervillains, supervillain organizations, and aliens with S.H.I.E.L.D. in exchange for information on the same. Obviously, it gets filtered to remove compromising information. Sometimes shared information can branch into other areas on special occasions.
Since the merging of the worlds, the Avengers with S.H.I.E.L.D.'s permission has set up a similar alliance with the Justice League. As a result, the Avengers gets updated information from the Justice League which includes information on supervillains, supervillain organizations, and aliens. Of course, the Justice League likely filters some of their information they share, just as the Avengers do with the Justice League as it is a give and take situation. In turn, S.H.I.E.L.D. also gets additional information filtered to them through the Avengers.
