The only Avenger who considers nudity to be a big deal is Tony. Steve and Clint were soldiers; Natasha has used her body/sex appeal for her entire life; Bruce is quite used to being naked in front of strangers; and in Asgard, clothes are more of a suggestion than a rule.
Of course, that’s not to say that Tony wouldn’t (or doesn’t) use anything as an excuse to strip.

Content warning: character death and suicide.
Surprisingly, it’s Bruce who goes first. It’s a brain aneurysm, quick and painless. The Hulk never even has the chance to take over and Bruce is dead before he hits the floor.
Clint is next. It’s not complicated or drawn-out. It’s just that no one is there in the middle of that firefight, the one day he runs out of arrows a moment too early.
No one is really sure what happened to Thor. All they know is that his trips home to Asgard grew longer, his visits to Earth grew shorter, and one day, he just never came back at all.
Natasha never was quite herself again after Clint died. But she never gave up, and did everything in her power continue on. What wasn’t in her power was when the Red Room wanted to reclaim their own. When she ends up back on the inside, she decides she’d rather die that become what she once was, and puts the pistol in her mouth.
Tony beats all the odds. He passes away in his sleep, at the age of 104, when the shrapnel is finally too much for his heart to bear. He dies happy, content with his past life, and knowing that he left a legacy for his son, his only child, to continue.
The serum left Steve functionally immortal, meaning unless he is physically harmed beyond the point of no return, he will keep living. The point of no return happens in the year 2968, during the Battle of Titan. His dying thought is, “I just want to see my old friends again.”
With regard to the Avengers’ taste in television series, ALL of them love AMC’s “Freakshow”. Needless to say all of them can relate in some fashion. Natasha likes to see women doing the dangerous stunts. Clint can’t stop grinning through the whole show—hey, the boy WAS a carny once. Thor is impressed with Midgardian physical abilities and self-adornment. Steve knows the feeling of being set apart. Tony is glad to see something that makes every member of his family so happy. And Bruce? Bruce just smiles a little Mona Lisa smile.
He sees the performers—no matter how “different” they are—develop such a strong feeling of community and of family. Everyone has a place to belong.

The team all had different ways on how they approached Coulson after he returned from the dead.
Tony had taken one look at him, dragged him to the Tower’s bar, then proceeded to get drunk enough that he may have cried on him a little (more than a little). Neither of them mention it. Ever.
Bruce had given him a little half-smile, and told him not to do anything so reckless again, because they wouldn’t be able to handle it a second time. None of them would.
Thor had hugged him. Hard. Phil had had to pry him off and tell him he was hurting his ribs to get him to put him down.
Natasha had vanished for two days before returning and giving him a dry smile. Fury may or may not have had a limp for a week or so afterward.
Clint had nearly collapsed after seeing him, but managed to gather enough strength to wrangle Phil into a team movie night. If a puppy pile resulted, no one questioned it. And if Clint kept a closer eye on his handler afterward, they were none the wiser.
Steve had also hugged him, and gave him a watery smile. He didn’t cry, but it was a close thing.

Whenever they eat Chinese food, instead of adding “in bed” to their fortunes Bruce and Tony add “for science.”
They always think it’s hilarious. The rest of the team does not.

Bruce was a sciolykid. He went to nationals at the 5 year anniversary of Scioly. All his anger problems? When he got second place in circuits lab because a 12-year-old beat him by half a point. That 12-year-old was Tony Stark, and Tony never lets him forget it.
