These studios are not "copying" the Avengers. Rather the Avengers is "copying" how movies work. If you as a studio have an intellectual property that makes money, you are going to continue to make movies about it.

I was thinking about that in the Universal Monsters entry. The Mummy, the Creature from the Black Lagoon and the Wolfman actually are not public domain critters, they're Universal's own creations which they still hold the exclusive rights to (as in, you can use a generic mummy in your work, but not The Mummy with all his trappings; you can make a werewolf movie, but not a Wolfman movie), and while others like Dracula and Frankenstein are public domain, the versions of them created by Universal (Dracula as the one played by Bela Lugosi, the iconic flat-headed Boris Karloff Frankenstein, etc) are, again, owned by Universal. They aren't making this universe because they don't have to pay for the characters, they're making it because it's their own studio's oldest franchise and it could fit fairly enough in the current cinematic universe craze.

Also, a lot of times things are declared public domain, when they really are not. If Hollywood studios are worthy of any crime, it is in keeping properties from lapsing into public domain. Not continuing to produce movies based on their properties, which is their prerogative.
