We learned something new today, and that thing that we learned is going to change a lot of other things for a very long time.
Namely, the sexiest people in the world are Avengers and Avenger-adjacent persons.
You'll wonder how we came to this conclusion. Well, curious and good-looking reader, it's a combination of factors. As you may have noticed, People has named its pick for the sexiest man of 2014. It's Chris Hemsworth, who just so happens to be an Avenger. Thor, to be exact.
Part the first, complete.
Part the second: Last year, People chose Maroon 5 lead singer Adam Levine as their hawtest hunk. "But, MTV News, Adam Levine isn't an Avenger!" you cry. We know. Shhhh. Just keep listening.
Since we realized Levine wasn't an Avenger -- and also not remotely close to the top of our lists when it came to sexiest people, living or dead -- we put the question to the smartest people we knew: you. And you responded overwhelmingly: Tom Hiddleston is the sexiest man alive, with 77 percent of your votes. And, uh, sorry Chris Hemsworth, but you only got 4 percent. Looks like things have really changed for you in the past year! What a sexy year 2014 was for you!
So with these two things in mind, you're obviously with us that the sexiest people in the universe are Avengers and Avenger-adjacent.
Check out our picks for the three sexiest Avenger types, and then vote in our poll. Who's the sexiest? Explain yourself in the comments!
1. Mark Ruffalo, a.k.a The Hulk
Don't let his easygoing nature fool you, Hulk is a grade A piece of manmeat. We've seen "13 Going on 30" enough times to be super into his reluctant yet classy dance moves, and we're weirdly charmed by his total inability to correctly wear a shirt in the trailer for "Avengers: Age of Ultron."
2. Chris Pratt, a.k.a. Star-Lord
Sweet dance moves, a weirdly aggressive way of being sad and remembering his dead family, renegade space guy moves? We're all in. Plus, hey, Chris Pratt! Who doesn't love Chris Pratt?
3. Chris Hemsworth, a.k.a. Thor
OK, fine. By which we mean: foooooiiiiiiiiine. We don't hate his face! Wish he'd get a haircut, but willing to look past it!
What do you think?
