    The Iron Man-and-friends adventure, which opened May 4, kicking off, then dominating the summer movie season, will hit the mark in its 54th day in theaters.

    It is the second-fastest to $600 million, behind Avatar (47 days) and ahead of the marathon runner that was Titanic (252 days).

    At $600 million and change, The Avengers sits in third place on the list of Hollywood's all-time domestic champs
