AVENGERS ASSEMBLE!!! This is the battle cry that is often heard by those that may threaten the world inhabited by The Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, The Avengers. Right before their villainous plans are laid to waste, that is.
Led by the “Big 3”, Captain America, Iron Man and Thor, the Avengers is an organization that brings together all of the greatest superheroes of the Marvel Universe to face global threats that no one hero could contend with on their own.
Battling such enemies as the God of Mischief, Loki, the evil A.I. known as Ultron and the shape-shifting alien race known as the Skrulls, this band of fearless heroes never back down from any extinction level threat, and always find a way to come out on top.
With the main active roster, special units as well as numerous reserve members, this comic book created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby has brought delight to readers for nearly 50 years, and at this rate will continue to do so for many years to come! With the release of the blockbuster, record-setting live-action motion picture in the summer of 2012, there is no doubt that The Avengers is the flagship franchise for Marvel Entertainment.
