We all have a favorite Avenger. Some are Team Captain America. Others are Team Iron Man. Heck, next summer, Marvel’s actually asking us to choose sides based on our own personal allegiances when Civil War breaks out on screen.

But are there Avengers that you truly hate? BrandWatch thinks so. The company conducted a recent study of conversations held on Twitter pertaining to the Marvel Cinematic Universe and its various characters. They spent one month tracking the names of characters who have appeared in previous Marvel movies, or will appear in a future Marvel movie. They collected 896,000 mentions from a "focus group" of 188,120 people – to give you an idea where this data comes from. And they have determined that Spider-Man is the most talked about hero, with Nick Fury ending up in last place.

The company went one step further, though. Using what they call Sentiment Analysis, they looked at the content of the Tweets to determine if heroes were liked or loathed. For example, the data showed that not a lot of people Tweeted about Quicksilver from The Avengers: Age of Ultron. But those who DID Tweet about him said nice things! You didn’t see that coming?

That isn’t the case for the following five Avengers. BrandWatch said these five, in descending order, were the Avengers characters who were talked about negatively on Twitter. They are the 5 most hated Avengers, according to social media:

Hulk
5. The Incredible Hulk
The survey doesn’t get into specifics as to why certain heroes ranked high on the Hate Meter, so we are left to speculate. Part of the problem with The Hulk is that there hasn’t been one consistent actor playing him from film to film, with Eric Bana passing the torch to Ed Norton and, finally, to Mark Ruffalo. Also, it has been years since we’ve had a solo Hulk film, so these could be hurting the big green monster’s Q rating.
