    The Avengers is going where only James Cameron has gone before.

    The superhero team-up will reach $600 million at the domestic box office today, its studio announced.

    The Avengers joins Cameron's Avatar and Titanic as the only films to achieve that milestone.

    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

    The Avengers is also the third-biggest grossing film of all-time worldwide, with an overall haul north of $1.44 billion.

    It obviously has outgrossed every Marvel-superhero movie, and has outdone the combined domestic takes of The Incredible Hulk, Captain America: The First Avenger and Thor, three of the films leading into the Joss Whedon-directed mash-up.

    Here's a complete look at the Top 10-grossing movies of all-time domestically, as reported by leading box-office sites:

    1. Avatar, $760.5 million
    2. Titanic, $658.7 million
    3. The Avengers, $600 million (estimated)
    4. The Dark Knight, $533.3 million
    5. Star Wars: Episode I—The Phantom Menace, $474.5 million
