Mostly As: Tony Stark is Iron Man, and he is YOUR best bud this holiday.

You’re gearing up to be the host with the most, which makes the I-Man your perfect wingman. Don’t worry. he won’t steal all your special holiday popcorn. At least not every batch you put out.

Mostly Bs: You’re bringing Cap along on this holiday adventure! Head to and have a ball!

You have plenty of enthusiasm and want to bounce along with someone who can match that enthusiasm. It’s the most wonderful time of the year, after all!

Mostly Cs: It’s Black Widow, baby.

You are seriously bringing the flirt this holiday, as well as the present fiend. It’s all good, it’s all good. Natasha’s got your back. Just be sure to share your stocking loot, mmmkay? It takes skill to keep such an effective lookout for Santa.

Mostly Ds: Loki’s tagging along with you this holiday season.

He may not be an Avenger, but he has no choice but to partake in your holiday merriment! You’re clearly not getting into the holiday swing of things, and need a benevolent Asgardian god to prod you in the direction of holiday mischief. Or toward the mistletoe. Whatever’s nearest.
