These are the Avengers from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
This group of people were formed first when Nick Fury, a member of the US Government agency S.H.I.E.L.D., introduced Tony Stark (known as Iron Man) to the Avengers Initiative, where Tony, Nick, and S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Coulson go out to find people with special skills. They eventually found Steve Rogers, a US Army soldier dubbed as "Captain America" who had been experiemented on by Howard Stark (Tony's father) during World War II; Bruce Banner, a scientist who had been exposed to gamma radiation that turns him into what is known as the "Hulk"; Thor, an Asgardian who possesses powers to control lightning (uses Mjolnir to guide it). Other members (Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow and Clint Barton/Hawkeye) who were already present as agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., joined the group.

To quote Director Nick Fury "There was an idea, to bring together a group of remarkable people, so when they needed them, they can fight the battles, that they never could." The Avengers' main and primary purpose is to defend the people of the earth from any major threats that are otherwise too much for any one Avenger to face alone.
They have defeated two large armies, stopped global extinction, even survived having being split apart during an international crisis.

Even without gear, many of the Avengers are proven to be strong in their ways. Tony Stark has experience in martial arts and has lots of knowledge and money as well. Bruce Banner also has much intelligence when not being his other self. Natasha Romanoff and Clint Barton are both highly trained assassins, along with Natasha's training in her past. Steve Rogers has superstrength alone. Thor has the power to wield lightning, even without the use of Mjølnir. Sam Wilson and James Rhodes both had USAF training and experience.
The Avenger's greatest weakness is their own individual agenda's that would otherwise contradict or conflict with the team's overall unity. They even fought with one another at times about how the team should be run or just to keep the Hulk under control. Another would be half of the team are vulnerable without weapons - Iron Man, Hawkeye, Black Widow, War Machine, and Falcon all do not possess special abilities like Captain America, Thor, Hulk, Scarlet Witch, and Vision, leaving them only to their combat skills.
