Never assemble Avengers individually

EW.com are running the Avengers pics from this week's new edition, which you can catch below. The stills are interesting enough, in that way that you learn absolutely nothing about anything, but that cover? MY GOD. Photoshop overload. Tony Stark looks like he just shat his exo-suit.
From top left, going clockwise, Earth's mightiest warriors look; mortified; confused; disinterested; horny; constipated; and lecherous. It's pretty obvious the individual Avengers have all been shot individually and comped together, which is fine and happens all the time, but it looks like EW's cover artist just sort of bashed his hands on his graphics tablet like a Muppet playing the piano.
In defense of the atrocious cover pic, one web comment snorted:
Um... isn't that kind of what being on a film set consists of? All the actors being in one place, lit professionally and made-up to look really, really ridiculously good-looking? That reminds me: other than Loki, we still don't really know who The Avengers will be fighting. Unless...
"Do you know how hard it is to get 6 actors in a room together, all looking correct and perfectly lit? Hard."
IT'S A WALK-OFF! WE GOT A WALK-OFF!
