Thor Gives Avengers Their Newest Ride:
Throughout time immemorial, the superheroes have always had a cool method of transportation. Batman has the Bat-Mobile. Wonder Woman has the Invisible Plane. The Fantastic Four and even the X-Men have their own signature ways of moving around.

The Quin-Jet doubled up as a troop carrier as well as cargo transport as well. It has helped the Avengers a lot. Now that the times are changing, the Quin-Jet has become more or less obsolete and Thor has come up with a solution – the next generation of Superhero transport!!
