IGN did a countdown of the Top 50 Avengers and Carol got #11
http://www.ign.com/top/avengers/11Ms. Marvel began her career as an offshoot of Captain Marvel. Military woman Carol Danvers was exposed to dangerous Kree technology and eventually gained incredible powers. She quickly moved out from under Captain Marvel's shadow and became a long-standing member of the Avengers.
Ms. Marvel's appeal doesn't center around her powers so much as her ability to overcome incredible trials and tribulations. Carol has suffered a number of tragedies in her career, from the infamous Marcus incident to her fateful encounter with Rogue and the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants. But every time, Carol has bounced back and renewed her desire to become Earth's mightiest hero. She may just reach that goal. One of the results of Avengers vs. X-Men will be a new set of abilities, a new costume, and even a new name for Carol Danvers. Now rechristened as the new Captain Marvel, Carol continues to build her own heroic legacy.
i'm pretty sure that she's in the Top 3 for balloon-fetishist's favorite characters. :D

Also, a little article from Newsarama on Carol and Spidey's 'Avenging Spider-Man' team-up:
Just saw the latest Avengers episode and although she wasnt in it, Carol has been added to the opening credits
You mean like Black Panther's oh-so-natural pose? Please.
